Glock 19 or Springfield XDM?
 
I'm looking at getting my first handgun for use as a concealed carry weapon. I've had many rifles throughout the years and only shot a few handguns. I'm big enough to carry a compact firearm but wondering if i should go all the way with a sub-compact. Any thoughts or opinions would be most appreciated.

Been discussed many times. I personally prefer glock but just bought an xdm. they are both great guns. Shoot both and decide what you like.

What he said, except i have the XD45. If it is down to these two, go try them on for size/fit. Remember that generally, the smaller the pistol the more felt recoil you will get from the same caliber/ammo.

I would choose the xdm between the two.

Why not stop by the introductions section and tell us about you? :)

Both are good, reliable guns. You wouldn't go wrong with either, so just find out which one feels better in your hand.

Easy...... Glock 19, I carry it everywhere and love it. Conceals great and pretty confortable

XDM...changeable grip panels now copied by Glock, a better trigger, better gear in pak and a properly supported and heat treated barrel that will safely shoot anything you feed it.

You forgot to add their ugly and everyone has one. :D

Thanks!
 
Thanks for the replies guys, i have shot both guns and really like them both though i've been against Glock for a long time i'm finding that i'm starting to really like them. However, i really like the added safety on the handle that is on the XDM and think that it is a much better looking gun.

Decision: Probably going with the XDM as i can't afford a Sig or a Kimber.

I'm a big fan of both. But if I was going to buy just one gun for an all around pistol it would be the Glock 19.
