when I was searching for a my first handgun, I made sure I rented a Glock, since that is the Master :)

Didn't like it at all, so ended up with an XDM9c.

Went shooting with a friend today. He brought his G19, and was watching him spray all over the place. I had just finished making a 2" dia hole from the 19 round mag with my XDM. So I shot his Glock... Not nearly as bad as his shooting, but holy crap, it was a mess!

Totally reaffirmed my decision on the XDM... if there was a question :)

Lol. I bought a XD45 in jun. just bought a glock 2 weeks ago. I can tell you this. The triggers are like night and day. Although I am a good shot with both. I live my XD. To be honest the main reason I bought a glock is because well they are ugly. I got some bad copper fowling on my XD from my jeans. Luckily I got it all off. Then I smacked it on a wall while open carrying at my hunting camp. (Was not use to OP I only do it while at my camp.) So I decided to git a gun I would not mind getting scratched up. Since the glock is so dang ugly and I did not care if I dropped it or scratched it up. It became my daily carry. As long as it goes band when I need it to I'm ok. So in short I'm a XD man. But a glock can do the s*** work.

I have an XDm-45, XDm-45c and a XD-45c. All great guns.

Years ago I tried to like Glock but I couldn't take to them, hated the trigger and grip.

Not sure I am a fan of the XD, but I do know for sure that despite the fanboys a Glock is not for everyone.

You do realize that the (M) in XDM stands for Match Grade? Match Grade barrel, trigger, sights, etc. If you didn't outshoot the Glock I would be shocked, lol

That being said, I would put my equally modified Glock up against any XDM. :)

actually it stands for "more". thats according to springfields advertising campaign heh

but compaired to a glock they are match grade lol

i rent glocks about once or twice a year to see if my tastes have changed and i been doing this since they things were introduced. still havent come up with any reason i should own one. the xd/xdm are just much better than glocks.

Never said anything remotely close to your exaggeration. Not even sure what your point is.

I own a Springfield XD9c, XDM9 and a TRP Operator .45. All excellent weapons. I like everyone of them. Possibly the reason I stated I would have been shocked if he didn't outshoot the Glock.

Hmm, SA told me the XDM was a Match upgrade over the XD. I may have to pick a bone with them, lol.

I totally agree the XD/XDMs are better out of the box than the Glock accuracy wise.

I'm not expert, far from it... But the difference between the two guns was eye opening. It took me awhile to learn how to hold the XDM to get it exactly on target. But even when I wasn't on target, it was a relatively small grouping, just not where I wanted it. This Glock was spraying all over the paper. For me, that's 2 for 2!

LOL for buying a Glock so you wouldn’t scratch your other plastic gun LOL.....embrace your wear marks !......can’t be a safe queen all its life LOL

There is always some gun that shoots better, difference should be a TRUE firearms aficionado should be able to adapt and shoot them all fairly close…..”The Glock was all over and my XDm makes one hole”…..either you aren’t trying hard enough, suck at shooting a multitude of weapons or you were defeated before you started because you read too many gun forums and don’t shoot enough……they all shoot straight boys , its where you are pointing them that’s wrong

I am definitly biased to the XD line but i have to agree with this. My buddy has a glock and we do friendly competitions all the time arguing why which one is better but in reality when we shoot each others guns its not that different...i like the XD better becuase of how it fits my hand and the glock is ugly lol...i do shoot my xd better but not by that much

I agree with you 100% on that. First time I shot my glock I did just as good as I do with my XD. That is the reason I carry it. It's smaller and lighter than my XD. But I can still put rounds on target just as good. Just because I don't care for some of the things about the glock, doesn't mean I can't shoot it.

Just cause you suck with Glocks doesn't mean everyone does.
I just shot an Xd for the first time the other day an guess what. I hated it. That's why you buy a gun that fits you..

I'm not sayin they aren't good guns, Xds, m&ps, Glocks, all equal in my book, just take your pick of features you want and feels good to you. Saying I shoot brand x better than y because its a better gun I don't think is fair for any of the brands. There all great guns in their own respect.
