Have you checked the XD 45 or XDm 45...13 round capacity...

I've never shot a xd, but I got friends that just love them. The only downside for me is the grip angle. I'm used to Glocks, 1911, and sig.

Did you thaw it in the micro wave? Oh wait, it has metal parts. On the stove maybe?

The XD has the same grip angle of the 1911, so it should be good for you. Also, how could you know you don't like the grip angle on one if you haven't shot one?

Just curious.

And the Glock grip angle is raked rearward far more. Probably the reason I don't really care for their feel.

I went to a shop that a had a few and I picked it up and tried a tactical draw and dry fire. My natural point of aim with my Glocks, Sig's and 1911s is center mass (2 in the chest 1 in the head)and, when I tried it with a xd I was pointing low. I never said it was a bad gun, just prefer Glocks. That was when Springfield first started marketing the xd, and they have changed some since then. Back then when I felt the xd, its angle felt like that of a beretta cougar or sig 2022. I've shot both of those guns and when I tried a tactical draw and shoot with my normal stance and grip, my first shot was low so I comped it and shot higher. It's just preference, I haven't tried it with a xd since then.

Glock 23 and Springfield 1911 loaded, the angles look the same to me. I don't know maybe we should get others opinions. Some my of friends don't care for Glocks cause they're polymer, square, not made American, or barrel riflings, I used to be on them. Then I tried one and I quit downing them, now it's number 3 out of my top 5 picks for combat handguns.
