It is a bit pricy (a new one will probably go for around $600), but if that's not an issue for you I highly recommend this.
that. my brother bought a Ruger LC9, and we went shooting. He was a little all over the place on target (primarily due to a LOOOOONg trigger pull); he asked to shoot my XD, and I said of course, He shot GREAT with it. once the mag was empty, he sort of looked slyly over his shoulder to me and had a grin on his face. He said 'Maaaan. That's nice'. He's already thinking of selling/trading in his LC9 for an XD lol
luckily I bought my XD when they first came out. I think I only paid like $420 for it. Same with my Sig Pro.
