I bought my Glock model 22 for a CHL class which will happen next Saturday. I have been 100% satisfied with it during practice these past few weeks. But I am not looking at this handgun as a CCW. For me it must be a smaller frame for carry purpose so I am thinking about all the other options out there. This thread has been an eye opener for me as I was seriously thinking about Springfield before but now will continue research on other brands. Thanks for the info guys.

I'm not sure that issue number one should be considered here as all glocks have a seriously thick grip. The other thing is that the xd shares the same grip angle as the 1911, which has a far superior point shoot extension. Glocks are like the ak-47 of handguns. They can be abused, and still shoot great, but they aren't the greatest. The reality is going to come down to one thing, shoot them both, see what you like, and buy it. Personal preference is really going to be the deciding factor as those of us who love glocks or xd's are always going to be biased based on what fits us.

1. The thickness of the frame and slide makes it hard and uncomfortable to conceal.

Default Consider S&W M&P

S&W has made a significant enroad to the auto pistol market in that price class of the Glock/XD marketplace due to the multiple grip panels included to get it most comfortable for the shooter. This has made way for many law enforcement agencies authorizing the S&W...fits more peoples hands.

Just a suggestion.

you didn't mention the cal that you are thinnking of
in 9 or 40 definitely the glock
for 45 , for my hand the glocks seem to be a bit long in the saddle - i don't feel comfortable with where my finger rests
xd came out with a smaller saddle and that made glock come out with the model 21sf - i wonder how long it will be for glock to modify their model 30 and 36

Default glock or springfield

ok so 40 cal
both of these are double stack thus fat
if they aren't feeling good in the hand have you considered a single stack?
Walther PPS is coming out soon in 40 cal single stack

Does anyone else know of a 40 cal single stack pistol?

Default Glock

Glock wins hands down. There is no comparison between the two.

i don't know how they feel in your hand but generally speaking
the total sales in 2005, for 9mm to 50cal. are:
GLOCK 288,132
S&W 125,584
ruger 65,603
sig 80,054
kimber 46,601
beretta 37,651
colt 14,057
springfield 5,849

Glock imports and sales more pistols in the usa than the top 3 american manufacturers. but if you remember the usa's top 2 also make revolvers, then the stats get even more in glock's favor - evidently a lot of people like the glock
