    Does this happen alot with your guns?

    If i'm ever thrown out of an airplane at low altitude, i suspect the ability of my gun to fire wont matter... given that I'll have a few broken bones and possibly unable to move.

    (BTW, i voted Glock. I prefer the size and ergonomics. Its ability to survive at the bottom of the pacific ocean is of much lesser concern, as i dont do much shooting at the bottom of the ocean.)

    BAC: i hope you dont treat your glock that rough! you know bad things can happen...


    Example #1: They can explode




    Example #2: They can crack



    I believe you said:

    Glocks are absolutely safe unless the trigger is pulled
    nothing is perfect and i just dont want you to think they are indestructible. please be careful how you treat a loaded gun. you never know who else might be within the range of your bullets.

    I like Glocks and carry one in my civilian life. But I'm not sure how relevant all the Glock torture tests are, especially for a gun carried by a civilian. Covering it in lint and not lubing it for six months is probably a more realistic test.

    Hell, I bet my M4 and M9 would both break under that kind of silly abuse. Yet somehow they manage to work fine here in Afghanistan. Go figure.

    Speaking only for myself, the most "KABOOMS" I hear about are with Glocks.

    Out of the three it would be the XD. I like Glocks but the XD feels better in my hand. I also like the extra features the XD's have.

    I voted for Glock. For the factory support, ease to find accessories, and the fact that they are tested to the limits. Give the XD a few years, and I might change my reasoning there. But I still prefer the Glock to the XD i have fired.
    If I was more familiar with the XD I might feel different too. But trying to not be partial without really good reasoning, I still vote Glock.

    Functionality, cost, support. Glock has it.
    It's an ugly tool, but I trust it.

    I own two glocks but I would buy the other two two in a heartbeat if
    I had the need.The other two mimic my glocks so I say my gun dollars will
    be spent in another area.

    I would say the Glock over the others. I've owned/carried Glocks and I've also shot the others. Not taking anything away from the M&P and XD but, I'd rely on the Glock most.
    As long as its reliable, accurate, and effective everytime its called, thats all the test I need.

    I voted for the Glock, but own all 3 and like them all. I have just always had Glocks, and shoot them better., thus far.

    XD gets the nod

    I looked at the Glock and the XD, and chose the XD. Fit ,finish and grip safety got the nod. From the very first shot I knew I had made the right decision. I have two H&K USPc, and if I had to make a choice between the H&K or the XD, I couldn't! The USPc was $819 and the XD was $499, maybe that would be the only deciding factor.

    I've shot all in 9mm and liked them all well enough but I bought the M&P. I have no regrets.

    Ciao,
