I do like watching Hickok45's reviews/thoughts on firearms. He has shot and reviewed the Rugar SR9c and here is the video on that:
He has reviewed the XD Subcompact .40 S&W, which is similar but not the exact XD model you mentioned.
I do believe his thoughts are pretty honest. Also, he really is a Glock guy and he doesn't try to hide it. So when you are talking modern sidearms, he is going to be comparing it to a Glock.

Why does everyone bring up the Taurus Judge? It's a .45 revolver that has long enough cylinder chambers to handle .410 as well, but you only get, what, 5 shots? My XDM in .45 holds 14 rounds. Yeah, I don't get to use shot, but even if I miss, the freight train sound of a .45 JHP passing by someone's head will change their religion.
Now if Taurus had actually started making this one, I would be impressed - the Raging Judge 28-gauge (.55 caliber) revolver.
Want to improve your game? The best thing to buy is more paint and more field fees.
I can't dumb it down to your level because I'm scared of heights.

Every time I see "XD," I see it as that goofy squinty emoticon. That usually makes online gun conversations... interesting.
I myself am a fan of my FN-Herstal FNP-9 pistol. I'm also a fan of the 9mm round. It's effective in defensive situations, and it's MUCH cheaper than, say, .45 or similar, so it's also range-friendly.
Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?

Whats every ones thoughts on a Sig Sauer P250? I got a friend trying to sell me both the full size body and the sub compact body with a case for $500 I think its a good deal. It looks like a good gun from the reviews I am reading.
I'm not as good as I once was... but am I as good as I thought I was??

You mentioned possibly carrying, you will not be disappointed with the SR9C.
It is small with the 10 round compact mags, and as comfortable as the XD with the 17 rd. full size mags. Being able to switch back and forth is great!

If your friend has the p250 shoot it first! My friend won a p250 in a raffle and did not like it because it is Double action only. I would suggest going to the range and rent the pistols that you are considering and shoot them then decide.
You must also consider your body type and the thickness of the gun!
