    I've really been eyeing it after shooting it not too long ago. Curious to hear some feedback from other owners.

    You can't go wrong with an XD. They have the same quality and reliability as a Glock, but come with a few extra safety features. I favor the XD's because I can quickly tell if a round is in the chamber and ready to shoot. The palm safety is a nice feature as well. I have put enough rounds through mine without failure to be confident it will work when I need it. To top that off they are accurate and reasonably priced.

    A1 hunting supply summed it up well. I have an XD .45 and it's great.

    I love my xd-45C and xd-45 service. I shouldn't say this but i actually like them better than my g19. They point better.

    I own a few Glocks, and was given an XD45 to test and evaluate last year by Springfield Armory. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one! A better factory trigger than my Glock 21, better hand fit for most people, and easier on the wallet! Not to mention you get the free holster and mag pouch with the purchase to boot! I took one of my officers to Springfield last week and picked him up an new XD45 for a duty pistol. Oh, one other thing. I did a side by side shoot off with the XD45 against my Glock 21. The XD shot better every time, in my hands. If the XD would have been available when I bought my Glock 21, I'd be carrying it.

    Sigh..........it never fails, anytime somebody ask about a Glock, or XD somebody always comes along to chip in with "Glock Sucks" or "XDs suck".

    Both have so far proven to be reliable dependable platforms. Some will like one over the other. I prefer the Glock for many reasons (but mostly because it does not look like a stack of legos, slapped together by a child with downs syndrome, like the XD does :p ).

    I have owned Glocks for many years, and in all those years thousands of rounds later guess what. Not one time have any of them ever failed to go bang. Even if I am shooting some crappy made in Turkey 9mm subgun only ammo. I can always hit what I am aiming at with them. Tell me now why do they suck?

    glocks suck

    its just personal preference. some people just have had better experiences with their glocks and they will swear by them, i am not a fan, and i wouldnt trust my life to them. i think maybe a decade ago i would probably have had no other choice, but i simply prefer the xd over the glock, no offense. didnt mean for the glocks suck comment to strike a nerve. ive just not been impressed by them lately and have talked about 30 people over the last 6 months out of glock and into an xd. i think that from what ive seen, even LEO guys, who actually pick the xd up and try it, they swap over real quick. the xd is truely and impressive weapon

    The XD45 is a great pistol

    and anyone would be well served by it.

    Personally, I have never liked a grip safety, and will not own a firearm with said device. Just my personal quirk.

    But you would do well with an XD or a Glock. Shoot both, buy what YOU like.

    :D

    I see very little differance in the two, except Glock offers a real 10 mm round

    A friend of mine bought the XD45 Service, and has liked it so far. I compared the grip to a full frame 1911, and they are darn near identical. So, if you know that a 1911 will fit and work for you, then the XD45 should be the same. I have shot it a few times, and I like it as well. I need another pistol like... well you get the idea. :)

    I have the XD45 compact and enjoy the versitility of it, it comes with a 10 and 13 round mag, the 13 round has a sleeve that extends the grip. As for the Glocks sucking I have a G19 and like it as well. I guess it boils down to personal preference and exsperiance. I for instance had an issue with a Sig and will most likly never own another, actually traded it in on a Taurus...uhh ohh I hear a resounding " Taurus's suck " comeing...again boils down to exsperiances, I have 3 and think they are great..

    I've owned the XD in a .45 tactical, .45 Service, .45 compact, 9mm tactical and 9mm SC.

    My favorite is easily the .45 service model.

    The XD's are super relaible. My daily carry gun has around 7,000 rounds through it. It's rock solid.

    Send your XD in to Scott at Springer Precision for a carry trigger, new sights and a couple of other things and you've got a really sweet machine.:D

    I love my XD45C I have been shooting 150 rounds a week for the last 4 weeks the 4" barrel is tuff at 25 yards but if I ever have to use it when it counts it will not be 25 yards. The long part of my house is half that.

    I bought a Xd 45 for my Master at arms son who hasn't been on leave to see it. He'll be the first to put some lead downrange

    I have a 45c. It is my avatar. It has been a great gun. Never had a problem with it. I trust it as much as any of my carry guns. You can not go wrong with a XD.

    I have an XD45 and love it. I also own a Glock 22 and S&W Sigma 9mm and i think that they are all good sidearms. I see no real difference in the XD and the glock. I know they are different Calibers but the firearm themselves are nice. I really like the part of having 13+1 in 45. I never leave home without my XD.

    Xd is good stuff

    Notdku, I have an X9, XD40, and XD45. They are just good pistols. I shoot the 9 and 45 in competition. I don't know where the Glock remarks came from, since you didn't ask.

    XDs are great. Any caliber will serve you well.
