I would have to go with the XD cuz they have perfected the glock i love the grip saftey and the break down is just as easy. they added the loaded chamber indicator and ambi mag release. over all great gun :horsepoo:
I have shot the XD.45/5" barrel and it is a fine weapon. I never shot a Glock so I can't say anything about them.
Man, U left out the best - Walther P99...
Glock ONLY if the Glock 34. Otherwise, XD I suppose...
I've got the XDSub 9mm and love it for all the features listed above. I've only shot a couple of Glocks before: 26 and 19, but I still prefer the XD's feel. I plan on owning a G26 someday though.
No thank you I want steel
Wow. I thought the Glock would rule. This poll was very surprising.
I've gotta go with the Glock. XD's are just a bit too new at this point, I'm not sure how they're going to hold up.
Glocks are tanks. They've got at least a 20+ year track record for reliability, functionality, accuracy, etc.
In terms of worst case scenario, only one handgun forever more, would the XD'ers still make the same choice?
I'm biased(as we all are). I'll admit that. I usually go for something with an American label on it.
I've also tried the HS2000 and Glock and I've found that I'll never be able to like them. I also wouldn't get the new "M&P" for similar reasons.
And it doesn't have anything to do with the composition of the frame.
I look at the XD's as a Glock done right. Put Glock sights on a XD's and you have the perfect gun.
XD all the way
Glock (9mm specifically).
Still sits lower in the hand.
More corrosion resistant.
A track record for reliability over time can't be bought, only earned.
Grip safety is superfluous. It will not prevent accidental/negligent discharges, as shown by decades of same from 1911A1 users. Anytime you grip the gun, you deactivate the safety, even if you have no intention of shooting at that time. Drawing or reholstering? Safety is off. Working the action? Safety is off. Loading or clearing? Safety is off. At least with the Glock, you have to have your finger on the trigger to deactivate the safety, and if you're not ready to shoot at that point, why the **** is your finger on the trigger? The same folks who deride the Glock safety-on-the-trigger as "putting the combination on the safe door" should think of the grip safety as "the safe door automatically unlocking as you enter the room."
All that having been said, I think the .45 XD fits my hand much better than the Glocks in that caliber. That doesn't make it a better gun, or one more suitable for any use, in my book.
And I thank all you "beta testers" for working out the bugs in these new designs. I did my time when I was younger, buying/trying every darn newfangled thing that came along. Glad to see the next generation has picked up where we left off. :mrgreen:
I'm still a big fan of Glocks and still own four of them. I would still take an XD anyday over the Glock.
I have two glocks 17 and 26 both are use for carry.I have SW99 in 45
that has the sweetest trigger I have ever seen on a pistol.
