Looking to purchase my first .45 and I'm stuck between Glock or XDM no model specific. Any recommendations or suggestions ?
Take it from someone who owns them both. (With the exception that my glock is a .40)RustyGrill said:I love my XDM I'm just debating on picking up a Glock. But I love my XDM. I wil check out a few tmrw and keep you guys posted
Double dog!XDM had fit me a bit better, but glock and XD both work. We can battle all day and bring in the fanboys of both but it comes down to you holding shooting and feeling both and seeing what takes your heart. I would say congrats to either or dare i say....BOTH?!?

Bottom line it's a personal choice. See what fits you best.
My opinion is as flows.
The XD line is my preference. The trigger is smooth.The glock trigger absolutely sucks. I like the grip safety on the XD(M). It is just extra insurance (no glock leg). The slide release/stop is to flush on the glock. The XD(m) has a ambi mag release without having to change it over. (A buddy of mine is left handed. If shtf and I had to give him the glock in a hurry there could be issues) The recoil spring seams flimsy and crappy on my glock. The grip on the glock dose not bother me. Even tho I like the XD(m) grip better. I can shoot one just as good as the other. Not the case for most people. (You like it or you don't). The glock has an unsupported chamber. There for it shortens the life of you brass if you are a reloader. You can not shoot non jacketed bullets in a glock. These are the 2 things that tend to lead to a kaboom in a glock if done to much. To correct these to problems you will have to buy a aftermarket barrel.
Bottom line XD(m) all the way. Who wont's to spend $550 on a gun then another $500 worth of work to it. Just buy one that has all you need out the box.
I would not say they trump all other guns. I will say they are just as reliable as a XD(m) or any other quality gun tho. The only reason I bought a glock is bc they are ugly as hell but you can still have trust them to work. Other than that they git a lot of negatives on my list. I don't care for them much.danolator said:Glock trumps all other guns for function and reliability hands down.
