Well, you are trying to compare apples and oranges..The Beretta 96FS is the 40 with an alloy frame, (the 92 is a 9mm) and the XD is polymer. A better comparison would be the XD & the Beretta PX4 Storm..In that case, the PX4 would be my choice. Now, a 3rd option is the Beretta 90-Two in 40. Unlike the 96, the 90-Two was designed to be a 40 and has a built in frame recoil buffer for just that reason. That would be my choice of the 3 guns. The 90-Two also has a slimmer grip avail as an option from Beretta for $10 for those with smaller hands.
