Default xd9

i am in the market for a 9mm and have narrowed it down to the xd and glock19, does anyone have shooting comparisons of these 2 guns and what makes one better than the other.

Both are good, reliable guns IMO. The XD has the added feature of a grip safety in addition to the Glock-style trigger safety. The XD and the Glock have two different grip angles, the Glock grip angle takes some getting used to as it's not what I would consider to be "Point and Shoot".
My advice is to see which feels better in your hand and if possible, rent and shoot both and see which one works best for you.

I like the the XD just for the reasons mentioned above "backstrap safety and grip angle" alot more comfortable if you have larger hands.

2nd GL
Glock's grip angle is an odity among auto pistols, folks either love em or hate em so you definety want to spend time behind one before droping your cash.

Tack

Average accuracy for average shooter
everything translates from practice to practical. you can be accurate with a Daisy one pump rifle if you practice enough.

I've had my XD9 since 2004 and absolutely love it. I'd say handle them both and see what you like.

For me the SA has a much better feel, translate, grip angle. Also the SA supports the case clear to the back, Glock does not and the cases bulge. This is important mostly if you reload. It also seems to me to be a safety issue but apparently not since I have not heard a single complaint about a case blowing out in a Glock.

I'm also considering one... a group of us went to the local range and I rented one... plus got to try out everyone else's stuff. Being a novice and quite new to guns I was doing OK with it... 95%+ of shots hitting the target. One of the other guys I was with tried it and, having never shot it before, put 10 shots in about a 3" circle at 7 yards.

shot both, and now own an XDM9 compact. Glock grip angle is just strange to me, the XD and XD(m) is closer to a 1911 type grip. plus the grip safety on the XD(m) is a huge perk to me, having that second safety that doesn't require remembering to turn on or off is great.
