I own a Glock 19, XDm40, XD40sc and a PT92fs. All are very good guns. While I agree thay the Xd feels top heavy it is not with a loaded mag. It actually returns quicker to my target when shooting with the added weight. As far as the trigger the Glock is better than the standard Xd but my XDm was real close when I first got it and IMO about the same if not better now that I have broken it in. If I were you I would go to a range that renst guns and try them all before you make you decission. Also look at the XDm it has alot more upgrades than the Std.XD Amatchgrade barrel better trigger larger capacity. Good luck with your decission.
