Default I need convincing.

I just can't seem to like the XD. I try and try.
I don't know what it is.
I am going to rent one next range visit and shoot one.
I have held one and tried some dry firing, it didn't feel as good as the M&P.
I just find them to be on the ugly side.

Convince me, why I need to look deeper and be a convert to the XD craze.
Let's see what you all have. Sort of like a beauty contest. Convert me.

I can't help. My local gunsmith/FFL has a few that he bought a while ago. I can get an XD9c from him for $400. and that's a great price, but I just can't warm up to it.

The XDm to me is like combining a 1911 with a Glock. It's good looking, has the grip saftey, and functions great without excessive bulk.

mine fits very nice in my hand. its weight and grip are a good balance. i like its grip safety and the trigger is much better than my new sr9c. and takedown is so easy. makes for a quick cleaning job

Take down is so simple that a blind monkey with one arm could do it.

But if you can't get into them, then so be it. What can we expect from a Sigma lover anyway?
