Shoot as many as you can, then buy an XD.

I personally own a Glock 23 (which is the compact version in .40 cal) it is awesome. But in all fairness I am a total glock lover.

I agree with gorknoids but would skip the xd and get a px4 instead.

I do that to from time to time as well, along with Unicorns, the Yeti, where Benning gets all his crazy thread ideas, what was going through Saddam's little brain the second that rope went snap, what taste tastes like & other mysteries.

Then I have to refocus on what I am supposed to do and get back to work.

If you shoot the Glock and you like the Glock, buy the Glock. Nothing anyone here says should make up your mind for you. The best they can do is offer suggestions for [b[YOU[/b] to try and see if YOU like the choice.

It's what works for you man, not the rest of the forum.

I have been in several shooting clubs and I never observed other members shooting Glocks. I don`t think they will accept cast bullets unless you buy a different barrel. There are several semi-auto pistols I would not buy including Glocks, Ruger and any polimer frame pistol. Your choice would be the best pistol for you but please read the warnings inside the pistol box before buying.

You have work to do? I thought you just lived to answer our questions...and respond to Benning's crazy thread ideas.

Shoot both the XD and Glock. I own an XD subcompact, XDM 9, Glock 26, and Glock 19.

I like both the XD and Glock but shoot best with XD and XDM. Find what fits you the best. Try it, Buy It, and Practice often.

I think it will boil down to personal preference. I like Springfield Armory and Glock.

Some will hate what I'm about to say but oh well. This is from my experience
which will differ from others....

You cant go wrong with the Glock! Even though I do my best to purchase an American firearm first. The Glock is really the only foreign firearm I have or will purchase. I really like the Glock firearm for many reasons, whereas most of the haters make up reasons to hate it and never have fired one or given it a chance. It's like the old Ford vs Chevy bull$%^&.
Have you tried Glock Talk dot come yet to get another view?

To each his own but I really like the pricing, weight, reliability, the simpleness, and I like how the upper receiver is not very tall - better for aiming. The grip angle is nothing to be worried about, it was a natural pointer for me (which was a first). BUT...Like most of my other pistols I conformed to them and able to shoot them just as well. The firearms I have are all very good ones with different grip angles and weights. Remember, you are not out looking to buy a new pair of pants lol. If you like a firearm, like the features of it, the looks of it, the caliber it fires then learn how to shoot it, plain and simple. Practice practice practice and this goes with all firearms in my book.

You really cannot top the Glock, but others will try and duplicate it and what others judge themselfs by...so it seems. If you want it buy it, then worst that can happen is you sell it if you don't like it and it will sell fast. Try one out first if you can and if you buy something else that's cool...but deep in your mind you will still want to buy a Glock
To each his own, good luck in your decision.

Nope, you can't out-Glock a Glock. But you can out-gun a Glock. It certainly fills its limited niche very well. It fulfills very well a particular set of needs. But there certainly are better firearms out there.

Again, G19 was my first handgun and I don't regret it, but my needs were focused enough that the G19 fit me perfectly. It won't fit everyone's needs.
