    I'm looking for a new gun for my girlfriend. I have a glock 23 and she loves the size but hates the recoil of the 40 so were looking for a 9mm option so far she's held and likes the xd and the glock 19 was wondering if anyone liked either better and why? She's currently shooting my highpoint c9 and I'm looking to get her somthing a bit better

    I would say go with the Glock because you said she is familiar with it and likes it.
    Don't know if it is something you are interested in but you can buy a 9mm conversion barrel for your .40. Just drop it in and switch mags, ready to go.
    But if she is just wanting her own I would go with the Glock or let her handle the XD before you decide. Good Luck

    Yea ive considered the drop in barrel but she wants her own gun when we go shooting. Shes held both the xd and the 19. But she has seen a ruger sr9 that she really liked also.

    It will all boil down to personal preference, I would suggest the Xd due to the safeties if she wanted to carry it in the near future. I don't know anything about the SR, but I have carried both the XD and Glock for a duty weapon, both are great guns.

    Go with the 19. I have one in gen 4 and my girlfriend loves it. She didn't care for any of my glock 40s

    If you go with the G19 then you also will be able to use most of your current accessories, such as holsters.

    Check out the XDM Compact 9mm....I also have the Glock 22 gen 4(.40) which I didn't think had a bad recoil! The XDM is my fave though!

    Glock all the way I hate the grip safety and I think glocks are more comfortable ymmv but the glocks have multiple safeties the grip safety I think gets in the way and in a stressful situation she might not grip it right and seconds count just my .02 cents

    The Glock 19 is an excellent option.

    I had an XDM. I have a G19 4th gen now and it is my favorite. It fit my hand better, has more accessories and cheaper mags. However, XDM is a good pistol and I can't say anything bad about it.

    Glock 19. Not even close. Accessories, reliability, ease of use. Oh and shorter trigger pull

    Not to mention he starts this on a Glock thread. Did you really think anyone was going to try and talk you into anything other than a Glock?

    I agree 100%, at work Glocks is all we carry. They are very good and reliable pistols. But my personnel carry is my XDM. I love this gun, feel great, shoots great and down right a looker. But it comes down to personnel preference to the buyer along with funds. $500 dollar range compared to $600-$750 range when looking.

    I have a G19 and an XDM-9. Like them both. The XDM will be more comfy for her to hold and has a better stock trigger but the Glock is easier to conceal and is a workhorse. If you go Springfield, get the XDM, not the standard XD.

    Honestly... the XDMs are the ugliest guns ever. No Glock is not the prettiest, that goes to Mr 1911 hands down... just saying
