Just out of curiosity - with the 1/2" shorter barrel of the XD 9mm compact - Does anyone have both a Walther P99c AND an XD compact 9mm?
Can ya take some photos comparing the size (both guns next to each other and on top of each other to illustrate the size differences)

Out of curiosity, wasn't the Walther P99C replaced with the PPS?, if so, isn't the PPS smaller than the XD subcompact? Just curious.

No, it was not "replaced." The P99c is still made. The PPS is just a new gun.
Actually, except for width, the PPS is the same size as the P99c - there are pics of the 2 together side by side on the Walther forum.
I am curious how another double stack compact 9mm compared to the P99c, however. I'd like to see a comparison of the P99c and XD subcompact.

One of my students had a platform very similar to the P99C, but it was a discontinued S&W clone from a few years back, it shot very well and I had a chance to put a few rounds through it myself. I own full size, compact, and subcompact XD's in 9 , .40SW, and .45GAP. The XD shoots better for me, more ergonomic and more accurate, but thats highly subjective since I have smaller than average hand size.

Someone helped me out with pics here - for those who are interested...
