The XD is a fine pistol. I like it in 9mm myself though besides .45. For the .45 cartridge I want an all steel firearms like the 1911 or the CZ-97. Not plastic.
I have enjoyed the used CZ75b i bought; it is as accurate as i can use it, but it isn't a light-weight, which may contribute to the accuracy. I LOVE the way it feels in my hand; it fits like a perfect C cup, without the black eye.
A buddy of mine has the 4" XD9; it shoots fine & is familiar to me due to my use of my XD45. I would have to say i prefer the old metal CZ in 9mm, though; this does seem counter-intuitive given my love of my XD in .45.
If i had to carry for work, a XD9 might be a little easier on the belt than the CZ.
