My $.02: The Glock does not point naturally for me. BTW Glock is 250,000 pistols behind.
The XD(m) is very comfortable, holds 19+1 and the interchangeable backstraps allow you to custom fit the grip.
The PX4 is very comfy(haven't shot it though) but the external thumb safety is a "flip up" to fire. I'm used to "flip down" a la 1911.
BTW IMO the XD(m) is a great value. You get the holster, mag pouch, thumb loader, and bore brush.
If I was in the market for a well priced polymer, it would be the XD(m). Good luck.

+1 on the XD-M. But in the end, the one that's a comfortable fit is the one to go with. If you've held all three, and the Glock appealed to you, that's the one.

im looking more for something with either a 5 inch barrel or very close (like the beretta)

i like how the xd(m) carries so much ammunition, i might consider one as a concealed carry weapon down the road.

thanks for your help everyone. I decided to go with the Glock 34. I will be shooting it tommorrow. I took it apart and gave it a good cleaning, seems like a quality piece of hardware, very simple and easy to field strip (especially compared to my ruger 22/45)

I have a glock 22 and I do not have a concealed carry weapon because of where I live but I must say my glock has been a reliable, fun and accurate plinking target weaponn. It is not perfect with the non-adjustable sights I have to aim slightly low but its pretty damn close and it has never jammed on me and I fire whatever ammo I find cheapest at Wal-mart so that is a big + in my book.

This is for protection:

I think glocks are very over rated myself. Never seen anything a glcok can do better than my 1911.

IMHO Beretta is an archaeic design (no offense to the 1911 lovers) with the locking block arrangement of the P-38. This puts the barrel very high in relation to your hand/arm. This allows the Beretta to jump around more than a lower setup like the Glock/XD or even 1911. The Beretta is a very large weapon in relation to caliber. A .45 1911 is more compact.

I agree the pistol that "fits" and feels good. If that is the Glock, OK. If that is the XD, OK. Still hard to beat a 1911. The thin grip is more "pointable" than most double stack grips.

I really like my 92FS, but I just don't see it as a concealed carry weapon. It is kind of big.

thanks for everyones help. i decided to go with the glock. it just felt better and more natural for me than the xd-9. it also seems like it was built to higher tolerances and overall just a slightly better engineered gun.

here are some pics

^ While missing a 1911, you have a GREAT looking collection going there...
