Hey,
This is my first post and I just purchased my first ever gun. After countless hours of research and test shooting at my local range, I decided on the Ruger SR9c. Took it to the range this weekend and absolutely loved it. Not one issue so far. Put 300 rounds of range ammo through it. My wife loved it too. She gave me the ok to purchase a 2nd gun so we can each shoot with one. I'm trying to decide between the XD9 and the G19. I've shot the Glock a couple times and loved it. Very accurate. I do like the extra safeties on the XD. My only concern with the XD is the late breaking trigger. Any opinions?

Welcome to the forum Steve!

I've had great sucess with both Glocks and XD's, why not save up and get both someday?

Congrats on the 1st purchase, great choice. I hope your wife will be as supportive in the future as she is now, you are now hooked on shooting and there is no known cure!! [insert evil laugh]

IMHO. The xd is one of the best out there. High capacity good shooting. Can take abuse and works every time. Guess I just love my xd. I also have the ruger. Great choice.

How does the trigger compare between the Ruger and the XD?

I lean tissues the xd still. It may be because it fits my hand so well. But the trigger seems stiff on the sr9c

i have shot several Glocks over the years, and IMO the XD and XDm both have much better triggers. but i will say this, if the Glock fits your hand better and feels more comfortable to you, the trigger issue can be overcome with a trigger job. i have shot the XDm, XD and the Glocks side by side and my preference for the triggers and how they feel to me if the XD and XDm over the Glocks.

I must say after a few hundred rounds the Ruger trigger really smoothed up-
It'd be a coin toss 'tween it & the XD -
