Glock or XDM . 45 ????
 
Looking to purchase my first .45 and I'm stuck between Glock or XDM no model specific. Any recommendations or suggestions ?

Go shoot both, they should be available to rent at a range near you. I own a xdm myself for several reasons.

Felt better than the glock
I like the grip safety
Great CS not that glock doesn't
Match grade barrel
Better trigger IMHO
And several other minor factors

You can't go wrong with either but you might want to consider waiting untill things settle down. Xdm prices are getting high right now because of the "ban".

Own Glock 30, love it shoots flawlessly, feeds everything, points well, but many find Glocks to point oddly and you may as well. I personally think it's a deficiency with them, not the gun, because I have no issues whatsoever.

That said, for a carry gun, with such a short trigger, I won't recommend it as a carry piece, because of lack of safety.

Never shot or even handled an XD of any sort, don't wish to, they're ugly and I just don't like Springfield. They make awesome firearms, no doubt, so do MANY others, I just don't like them. Priced as high quality for average product you can find elsewhere more accurately valued. Just my opinion, neither humble nor extremely experienced.

XDM is superior to Glock. No Kabooms and can shoot reloads right out of the box.

I can't stand Blocks... I mean Glocks, but that's silly.

OP, go shoot both and buy whatever feels best to you. They are both fine guns.

The only great gun with more plastic than a Glock, is an XD. lol

I have had a Glock 20 about 20 years. No regrets.http://static.gifstitch.com/share/2013/1/19/60731.gif

XDM had fit me a bit better, but glock and XD both work. We can battle all day and bring in the fanboys of both but it comes down to you holding shooting and feeling both and seeing what takes your heart. I would say congrats to either or dare i say....BOTH?!? :P
