find a way to take the mag apart let the spring regain itself and if it's dirty CLEAN IT dirty mags can cause feed jams and various other issues.

OK, so Ive had the sig p225 9mm for a while and while I do love how it shoots I am rather thin and the handle is too long for me to comfortably carry it concieled. I am thinking of getting a springfield xd sub-compact. The .40 is I think too much bullet in too little of a gun for me. I need some clarification here. If I get the .357 is that less powerfull? And can I feed .380 ammo in it on the cheap for at the range? I heard this and dont know how that works. I was thinking of getting it in 9mm. All these choices boggel a beginners mind.

I don't think .380 will chamber in a .357 sig gun. I think you are confusing .357magnum with .357sig.

.357 magnum is a rimmed revolver cartridge and .38 special is a lower powered round that will chamber in guns for it but not vice versa.

I would go 9mm simply because it's a far more accessable and inexpensive round to practice with. The .357sig is more powerful but for me if I was to step up from 9mm in the same gun I would go .40S&W. It's more readily available and I don't think you'd notice that much difference in recoil from the .357sig.

If you are worried that the 9mm is not powerful enough I think most with XD experience will concur that the XD is exceptionally well designed and built so the .40 won't beat you up too much.

For me personnally I would go 9mm in a compact. I'm 5'11" 182lbs.

38 Special you can put into a .357 doesn't work as per my knowledge with 380 and 357 sig and doesn't work as per my knowledge with 357 going into a 38
