No, no, no, I said that I have $1500 to spend on one. The XD is not an imporvement, did you read the last post?

Wow you're getting your fanboy thing on hard core aintcha?? You made the statement that the OP never one a Glock and wont but you trash a XD to the point that your top shelf highpoint is better? Put the lid back on the bore cleraner spanky and open a window. As IB has said he owned a Glock, I owned a few. So besides the Glock and that really cool hi-point just what have you had in your gun stash? From your posts all I"m seeing is you like guns htat have the feel of a 2x4 and think that's just great. And that is fine..for you. But you obviously have no working knowledge of other handguns or you could not make the statement you have. I'll give you props on the Glock copy Sigma.And they are, don't fool yourself. I've owned one of those too. Along wit hthe other god knows how many different handguns since I was young and cool.

Face a cold, hard fact. A Glock while being a fine weapon given it's several limitations is not the end all be all of handguns. I would go so far to say if it was not for the marketing campaign of Glock they would not share near the market they do. THe reason they do sell well over some other striker fired weapons is the deals they give out to LEO. They are going to get that money back someplace. It's been said that in the beginning that they did not ant to sell to anyone but military and police. I'm not 100% on that but I've heard that since the early 90's. At any rate it's pretty simple business to run a sale to group A and make it back on group B. The idea that they are not made to allow for certain types of rounds that would be more prevalent in the private sector leads me to believe that they do not make them with the civilian market in mind.

But yeah, you can compare the Glock to the XD in that they are both military style handguns that are striker fired and simple to operate. And in that comparison the XD has better ergonomics, a more manageable recoil, allows for a more wide variety of ammo. Glock wins on the aftermarket front and the rabid following of their fanboys.

Out of the several striker fired handguns I have owned the only to fail on me was a Glock. It was a Gen 1 that had that flimsy ass guide rod that when it heated up could allow the gun to not cycle properly. Changing to to a steel rod solved the problem but I wouldn't trust it anymore so it was replaced.

I would think before you got to opening your can of flame that you might think about the people that you are aiming it at. Several people gave valid points to their not elevating the Glock to mythic status. At it's core it seems the consensus is that the limitations outweigh the idea that it is easy enough to operate and being it's loose fit (like most combat weapons) allows for more crud to get in there before there is a failure. In the end there are other pistols that can fill the need and do so at a better price point while being similar in design and function. The fact that they do not say Glock does not make them junk.

Glocks are fine if you are OK with the limits. But there is a reason that they make other guns. Because all people are not all fanboys. An that is for a reason.

I have figured out what to do with the Glock, but my wife made me quit trying to figure out women. lol

One of my favorite comics has a line, " I have been married 15 years, and I have not so much as looked at another woman, I am that discouraged!" lol

I got that beat, 30 years!

They will if the mag is stuck.

A crappy trigger with a gun that has more safeties than a nuke base, it taje 2 people to take it aprt and put back together, one uncomforable grip as most of the plasic guns are except Ruger's, and a meatl slide that moves on plastic. at least the Glock slide moves on metal points.
There are lots of POS guns out ther that are over priced. infact there are great guns out there that are over priced. Take the 1911 for example. We know that they can be made and sold for a heathy profit for $400. And now you can get them in Aluminum which is alot cheaper than steel for as much as $6K. the average 1911 with manf'r that has a good name is between $1500 to $3000. I think tose are WAY over priced.
I am completely convinced you have never shot much less know anything about the XD.
