I own an XDm 40, Xd40 sc and the Taurus Pt92fs which is the Beretta knock off, and a Glock 19.The Xdm is deffinatley my choice its pointability is great it is very accurate and reliable. And Springfields customer service is fantastic and a life time warranty to boot.

Look over the internet and see the number of people stating they never shot a xdm that hasnt jammed. Be cautious. Even after they been rma and gotten back.

Both are great handguns. I would have to say for first gun, why not get the 9mm or step up to 45? =P 9mm will be easier to shoot with less felt recoil, still packs a punch, and doesnt cost as much to shoot.

I love the beretta 92fs. Just super smooth.

XD is a great fit in the hand.

The guys here really give the good advice... the beretta is like driving an old school muscle car.... proven design and it works. The XD is like a modern import. Gets the job done, but sleek and sexy. It all depends on your flavor, esp if you want a metal gun or a plastic gun. go rent them both... or buy them both. =P

Open slide design makes the Beretta prone to slide breakage -- typically at the rear on the right side where the "ejection port" begins. Alloy frame. Never cared for alloy frames -- which is why I don't own a Smith semi-auto.

Springfield warrants their stuff forever.

Kimber -- because the name came up -- has a one year warranty. Hard to find any gun these days warranted only for a year, but Kimber does it. They're over-priced and over-rated.

IMHO . . . of course.
