    at least an XD is safe to shoot out of the box.....you have to put a heat treated barrel in a Glock to make it safe from KB's !

    XD has a better trigger, the grip safety is a plus AND not having to pull the trigger to disassemble is a REAL plus !

    My vote : XD .......and especially XDM...nice shootin iron !:eek:

    I don't personally care for either. That said, I believe the XD is the better of the two offered up pieces.

    Come talk to me in another 80 years when one of them makes their Centennial Edition. :cool:

    I say Glock, not that there is anything wrong with XD's. I just prefer the feel of a Glock and I shoot it much better. Chances are most of you would not like the same women as me either. So to each their own.:D

    If it's not a 1911, it's just plastic.

    :rolleyes: As anyone who knows me well could tell you: I ain't no Kool-Aid drinker. I, quite possibly, hold some kind of record for arguing more often with more mindless Glockaholics over at Glock Talk than ANY of the other regular posters.

    This, now, being said: I want you to know that I think you should get some kind of award for the most misinformed bull-hooey post I have ever read - on any website, anywhere - disparaging a Glock. :mad:

    'Heat treated barrel' to make a Glock safe? Wow, that is truly inspired bull crap! 'The XD has a better trigger?' EVEN SPRINGFIELD KNOWS THAT ISN'T TRUE! Otherwise they wouldn't be charging an extra $150.00 in order to bring the stock XD trigger up to Glock's factory standard performance.

    I'd like to know what's so great about a pistol with plastic slide rails, a bore axis high enough to give you a nose bleed, and expensive MANDATORY FACTORY SERVICE on the XD's constantly expanding load of superfluous gizmos. Every time something breaks, and you need to get it repaired, Springfield gets to hose you down just like the oil companies! So go ahead, tell me what's so great?

    If you're going to BS people on the internet, at least, calm down your vivid imagination and come up with stuff that sounds a whole lot more believable! :p

    If is was going for a 45 I would choose an XD. If the SHTF I would go for a Glock, any Glock. Just because parts are largely available for Glocks and they really will eat any ammo you put in it.

    +10, I don't care for either choice as well. Of the two offered up... I'll take a bag of rocks.

    In my opinion, if Glock would change their grip and grip angle, they would be best, but they keep the too large grip, with the butt that points to the rear, so that mr Average Joe with smaller hands, can't get comfortable and has to constantly readjust his/her grip. XD solved that problem. I don't understand what 21.45 means by the trigger job. I traded a G22 with a 3 1/2 pound trigger that I couldn't hit with consistently for an XD40 that was great out of the box...comfortable, accurate and soft shooting. I have to agree that Glocks are easy to work on and customize, but my XD didn't need any customization and it will shoot lead wad cutters.

    The XD is hell on my thumb for the slide release lever. I cannot do it with one hand. That alone makes it unworthy IMO. My first Glock was a beast and never failed me as a duty weapon. The newer ones are even more comfortable, though I don't own any.

    Didn't you know that after market barrel manufacturing for Glock pistols is now the number one money maker in the world? If you own stock in any manufacturer you will become a multi millionaire even faster than if you own a majority of Chevron. Millions of aftermarket "heat treated" Glock barrels are back ordered to replace the sub-standard ones currently found on one of the most widely used pistols on the planet, to avoid "ka-booms". I once knew a guy who heard from his cop friend that read a magazine article written by a guy who heard a range instructor say that he remebered hearing something about Glock barrels being prone to failure.

    Ohhh G21, you, and millions of others all over the world are so ill-informed!!! :D

    And Mark, I aquired all of my Glock pistols in trade... For bags of rocks. Did I get taken?

    David Olhasso won the Custom Defensive Pistol division at the 2007 IDPA National Championships, using an XD45. He beat out numerous 1911 .45 shooters to win the title. Not bad for a "plastic gun". ;)

    By the way, I own several 1911's, and think the world of them. However, I also own multiple XD's, and also think quite highly of them. When it comes to handguns, I'm definitely not a "one-trick pony". :)

    I was debating between a Glock 19 and a XD9 and ended with the XD. I felt like the grip safety made the gun a little safer to conceal.

    I'm biased, but I'll say I have to go with the XD pistol.

    Whichever one you choose, you can load it on Sunday and shoot all week. Something you can't do with a 1911.
    The big difference is, with the XD, the first 2 rounds aren't into your own groin.

    A little ridiculous and bulky, but still able to fire for a whole, make that two whole weeks. Polyguns prompt the reaction "Aww ain't that cute":D
