    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.

    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.

    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've said this before but if we all had that attitude, we'd still be using blunt rocks. Don't let the age of a design alone decide it for you. If you're going to do that than you should get a 1911. How old does a design have to be for you to trust it? If it's from a reputable manufacturer that stands by its products than it doesn't matter if the design is a week old. I think 6 years is long enough.

    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.

    I have a G26 and it is a great gun but i feel safer with the XDs grip saftey.
    plus the glock is DA only where the XD is SA only i like the XD trigger better

    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.

    I'm still a big fan of Glocks and still own four of them. I would still take an XD anyday over the Glock.

    SW99 ONLY comes in the A/S variation . It is the SW990L that is like the QA trigger. They quit making the SW99 at the end of 2005, but ya can still find them new (sitting on the shelf) if ya look hard enough...

    I meant the SW990l. Have you shot one or the p99 in QA? What did you think?

    I almost bought a QA months back - just to round out the collection But everytime I've dried fired one at a show or gun store - I find its just too heavy. Never been interested in buying one because of that, really....

    Valid points, I'll grant you. But I remember when the Betamax was going to revolutionize the audio/video industry. Reputable product, better than VHS, but eventually it vanished into the mists of time, along with laser discs. Glad we didn't buy one.

    I'm leery of market fads, having been victim of more of them than I care to remember. That's why Glock edges out the XD in my book, but it's strictly a personal preference.

    Now I'm off to find a blunt rock to defend the cave....
