You have touched upon one of the hottest rivalries in the handgun world: Glock vs. Springfield... Springfield vs. Glock.
They are both well made guns. Really it comes down to what feels good to you. Most of purchasing a handgun is how it feels to you, how comfortable you are shooting it.
It's nearly impossible to say that one is better than the other. It's equivalent to asking which is better? Ford or Chevy? It's all about personal preference. Anyone who tells you otherwise is being a fanboy.
To me, Springfield fits my hand like a glove and Glocks feel like wrapping my hands around a brick.
