It looks like I will be selling my gen I Glock 17 to a friends sister whom is a big city officer. She really wants a Glock and I can use a little cash. I am however curious about the currently available modern (poly) pistols. There will be a need (OK desire) to replace it early 09. The SA XD M looks like a well thought out piece. Unfortunately it seems to only be available in .40 which is probably a better round than 9mm, but I prefer the slightly lower cost and recoil of the 9. Basically I'm sorta looking for a industry up date (a little 101) on the current offerings. The main thing I look for is a slim grip frame because I have a small hand.
