My vote : XD ....... and especially XDM ... nice shootin iron!
As anyone who knows me well could tell you: I ain't no Kool-Aid drinker. I, quite possibly, hold some kind of record for arguing more often with more mindless Glockaholics over at Glock Talk than ANY of the other regular posters.
This, now, being said: I want you to know that I think you should get some kind of award for the most misinformed bull-hooey post I have ever read - on any website, anywhere - disparaging a Glock.
'Heat treated barrel' to make a Glock safe? Wow, that is truly inspired bull crap! 'The XD has a better trigger?' EVEN SPRINGFIELD KNOWS THAT ISN'T TRUE! Otherwise they wouldn't be charging an extra $150.00 in order to bring the stock XD trigger up to Glock's factory standard performance.
I'd like to know what's so great about a pistol with plastic slide rails, a bore axis high enough to give you a nose bleed, and expensive MANDATORY FACTORY SERVICE on the XD's constantly expanding load of superfluous gizmos. Every time something breaks, and you need to get it repaired, Springfield gets to hose you down just like the oil companies! So go ahead, tell me what's so great?
If you're going to BS people on the internet, at least, calm down your vivid imagination and come up with stuff that sounds a whole lot more believable!
