Not sure but I do have a question. You mentioned potentially competing with it in another thread so do you think the shorter barrel is the best idea. A longer barrel could provide you with a little better accuracy. :thinking:

yea i agree on that one, but the 3.8 fits my hand better and would be better for carry. i want something that would work for both

A longer barrel doesn't mean better accuracy.

Longer barrels only mean more velocity. The extra sight radius may make it easier to shoot more precisely, but the length of the barrel doesn't make it more accurate.

That being said, the 3.8 is probably too short for competition, depending on what discipline you want to shoot. Also, .45 will also get expensive, quick.

I just asked SGMJody the same question today. I would like it with a shorter grip also, for concealability. However, for competition, I placed an order for an xD(M)9 today.

I don't think SA will come out with a 3.8 version for a while (1 - 2 years) I believe they will wait until they "feel" slack on sales of their full size model, just like they did with the 9mm and 40 cal. Just my opinion. My 3.8 40 cal is a "fun to shoot gun.
