Since your on an XD forum. I bet most if not all will say XD. IMO I use Glocks at my job and I hate them. My personnel weapon of choice is my XDM.

I have never really liked the Glock, just never felt the grip was right for me. I have carried the XD45 and really enjoyed it. I have also carried the Sig P-226/229 in 9mm, for about 15yrs. You might want to look at Sig also.

But in the end she is the one that is going to have to make the choice and not you. Look at it this way, does she or do you chose the shoes she is going to buy and wear?

Take a look at the Ruger SR9 and SR9c. Smaller grip and more rounded. External thumb safety. Made in USA. The Smith M&P compact is also a nice pistol.

Yep, I carried a Sig P226 357 for a few years and loved it also. IMO you can't got wrong with Springfield, Sig. My job at the moment carry the Glocks these days. I find these guns reliable, just do NOT like them and never will. But it's up to the buyer these days. With prices running $500 average for a Glock or Sig weighing in at $999 for a P226, the Springfield comes in at $500-$850 range. Everyone will always have a personnel preference on size, weight and cost. Sorry to blab on and on just you have the fan boys of the Glock the act like its the best thing since sliced bread lol. Well it's not, but they are good just not Sig or Springfield good.

Huge Ruger fan of the smaller bore guns. Especially the SR & LC platforms. Also a huge fan of Glock & take issue with the above comment. The big gun manufacturers all make excellent weapons and everything boils down to personal preference and intended personal use of the weapon. For me it's Ruger for pocket carry and Glock for IWB & open carry. To each his own. So how does this fit in an XD discussion you ask? I want one!!

As I wrote above its not that Glocks are bad, I just don't like them. I also think that fit, fill and price is a big thing. Glock fans, Springfield fans, sig fans and all other gun fans will always choose there favorite guns no matter what. It don't matter if its junk or awesome. They stick with it even if they never in life shot any other pistol. Me I've shot a Glock, Ruger , sig and Springfield, hell even a HIPoint lol. They all have pros and cons in some aspect or another. I guess this is why we have a forum so we can Bragg on our personnel guns.

I own a Springfield XD SC 40 and a Glock 17 gen 1. And I like them both.
I had a Glock 23 & didn't like the trigger at all.

XD9 over G19 in my opinion but that's because it felt better in my hands and the double safety feature was very nice. However customization of the G19 is nice but everyone has a glock lol
