xd's are a different animal being a double stack they have a "blockier" profile and easier to control. I have shot more than a few mouse guns in .45 and didnt have the initial trouble i had with the pf-9.
I have shot many, MANY different brands and styles of pistol, the pf-9 is the one that gave me the most issue "getting a grip on it". Its surprisingly snappy little gun, its a handful!
That typed, EVERY type/brand/style of gun i have ever shot has always had some sort of misfire/feed at some point. GLock, XD, Ruger, Smith, 1911....380, 9mm, .45 etc.
I refuse to buy into the "you get what you pay for" excuse...in my life i never buy the cheapest of anything, but i never buy the most expensive either. I have found middle of the road equipment best.
I have seen Kimbers out shot by my beat up old springer....I have seen glocks fail....I have seen/had Taurus fail. My 1911 had issues, until learned the gun and dialed it in...same with my pf-9...same with my 686.
People NEVER want to blame themselves, its easier to blame a mechanical contraption...in my 30+ years of shooting i have learned that MOST (not all) the time its operator error and NOT the gun.
