I love my XD, bought it for the price and it really fits well in my hand. I personally liked it's feel over a Glock. I haven't had a single problem out of the weapon, I had some misfeeding reloads that was solved with a slightly lighter flare and a tighter crimp, but that was my fault, not the weapon's.

Yes you should. I have tried several different 9mm and liked most of them. I like my Hi-Point C-9, but probably wouldn't carry it...great truck gun. The Ruger P95 is a good one too, but when you want a consistent shooter you need a striker fired weapon. I tried a S&W Sigma and it taught me trigger control while really strengthening my finger, then traded it. I like the Kel-Tec P-11, but for a gun that will shoot thousands of rounds accurately, and trouble free in any condition, go with the XD.

Now...I don't have an XD9, but I traded my Glock 22 (.40 S&W) that was not comfortable or accurate for a new XD40 and found it is comfortable, and accurate right out of the box. Got to love Springfield weapons. Good luck.

I have a XD 40 subcompact I love. But now I would go for the XD M. It hold 16+1 round of .40 and has some of the best machined parts money can buy. I got to check one out at the gun store, quite impressive weapon. It has an adjustable backstrap like the M&P's, you can release the slide without dry firing it, and did I mention it hold 16+1 rounds! That's getting up there with some "assult" rifles.

I'd go for the XD. I have 2 XDs in 45 ACP, but my next one will be a 9mm. They are very reliable and accurate.

I just bought one yesterday. It was a toss-up between the Glock 17 and the XD-9 (Prices were within about $50.00) and asked the salesman for some input. He was wearing an XD-9. 'Nuff said.

Yes, you should buy an XD.

They're currently outselling both Glock and Smith M&P on the U.S. civilian market.

They're renown for their reliability, durability, ruggedness, accuracy etc.

You can't shoot reloads with Glocks because of the KABOOM problem, and the M&P has experienced a number of problems since it was first released.

XD is definitely the way to go.

Clint Smith is a big fan of both the XD and XDM:
