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