Don't worry about which one holds more, or who says what about one gun is better than the other. If you are interested in buying a .45 go to the LGS and rent the ones you are interested in buying and shoot them, see which one fits you the best and buy it. Every one has there favorites, likes and dislikes. Most all manufactures of guns be it SA,Glock,SW,Ruger,Kimber,Sig Sauer, etc etc etc all make good reliable guns.

Its not about capacity, but your ability to shoot accurately that counts.

I prefer the XDm over the Glock.

Capacity is the same between the two. The XDm doesn't feel so much like a brickbat. Man, that Glock grip is HUGE!!

I despise the fact that Glock barrels can't shoot lead cast bullets, especially in a .45acp. I also hate the fact that the chamber isn't supported.

Ohh, and the Glock is WAAAYYY ugly!!!

I prefer the xd. I think it's ally smoother less muzzle flip and recoil. The xd .45 is also more concealable for me. Although the glock is a fun gun I prefer Springfield over glock. I prefer xds over both but just my opinion. You can buy aftermarket for both. Glock is of course easier to find though.

I'm pretty happy with my .45 XD 5" Tactical

I'm thinking about a G17 though.

get the xdm not the xd. much better upgraded design. you dont need a aftermarket barrel with the xdm its superb out of the box super accurate. they have outstanding triggers for a polygun almost on par with 1911's.

there are aftermarket barrels but the factory barrel is really good its not like a glock that needs almost everything replaced or tuned to run...

In .45 the Glock chamber is supported. The .40 S&W chambers are the ones that are not fully supported.

An unsupported chamber means that there is a small area of the casing's side exposed.

Supported means that the entire casing is covered/supported by the chamber.
