    Shot em all. Use to own a Glock 23C (that I loved, but sold for a smaller carry weapon). Now that I have the budget to own multiple guns for multiple fun... I bought the XD.

    Why XD 45 over the Glock 21???

    I wanted a .45 and the 21 felt awkwardly huge even in MY hands. The comfortable fit, led to a more secure/natural hold, and a more natural point. Therefore, for me, more accurate. In a 9mm, or .40, it would be a hard call... I also prefer the XD's trigger. Just personal preference.

    The M&P??? Just didn't like the feel.

    They're all great guns.

    The grip angles are different and the bore is lower on the Glock. Functionally they are almost the same so there was no real grounds for comparison there. I do like having the grip safety on the XD9 since it's a passive safety device. You don't have to flick anything to disengage the safety yet it automatically engages when you holster the gun.

    If you're just looking for a popular vote, check out the XD forums. You'll find more and more new members who clearly state they used to be die hard Glock fans and are now switching to XDs.
    +1 on that propellerhead, & i see you on a lot of the same forums as myself

    I voted Glock. I have a 19 & 26 and think Glock makes the best 9mm. in .40 I prefer Sig or HK and in .45 it's a 1911 all the way.

    Im sorry for you that you sold your Glock.
    Every Century or so someone come along that is considered a Genius.
    For GUNS...
    J. Browning was born in the 1800's and Gaston Glock was born in the 1900s.
    The Glock got it right and the others are intimidators. Sure it is easier to take apart with the lever but that can be a drawback just like the 92fs

    I voted Glock simply because I have owned a few and did like them better than the one XD I had. I have not even held the MP but do own a 40VE and though I do like it more than any of the Glocks I had it wasn't in the list..lol.

    I have held, shot, field stripped and cleaned all three and I now own the XD. The XD was more accurate than the other two and all three cycled flawlessly with several types of ammunition. The XD feltbetter in my hand with the M&P running a close second.

    I've owned all three and prefer the Glock.
    The XD felt unbalanced, and had a clunky trigger.
    The M&P is a good pistol, but $35 for mags? I don't think so.
    Just my opinion though....

    The guys that I shoot with are all Springfield guys with a peppering of guys who like other guns. All of us (buy us I mean them as I currently am without a handgun until January) shoot .40 cal and I have shot the Glock 22 and the XD in almost every variation of .40 I have yet to shoot an M&P but I have to say that I really like the XD, in fact I would own one myself but for personal reasons I want a sidearm with an external Hammer.

    I have quite a few (it seems like to me) pistols and only two have never had any kind of failure. One is my full sized MP 40 and the other is my CZ 75B 9mm. The CZ 75 is a all steel and has a external hammer. The MP has the best ergonomics. Both are very accurate.
    The glock and the XD seem a little bulky to me but I guess it's what you get used to. My carry gun is either my S & W 442 or my MP 9c (depending on what I'm wearing that day) but I really like what I've seen lately from Walther, their new little PPS single stack 9mm looks like a good ccw if it proves out to be as good as their other polymers. I'll be keeping a eye on that one.

    I own a M&P .40 cal.

    I think it shoots good...but then again it's my first gun and I have not experienced the other 2 yet.

    I believe you said:



    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.
    Oh yeah, just a little spit, elbow grease and polish.. That'll clean up ok.

    ....EEK! But seriously folks..

    This is certainly enough to give me pause before I shell out for a poly pistol of any flavor.

    I do intend on one of my final two picks being a metal frame..
    Ah Hell.. I'm gonna have to shell out for a Sig or HK, ain't I to avoid the worries of crap like these pics above huh?

    There are plenty of photos of blown-up, all-steel guns out there also. An idiot can overcome any obstacle. That being said, my main experience with the three pistols listed, is with Glocks, having carried one at my job many years. I don't know much about the M&P. I've handled an XD, but not shot one. I like the feel of them BUT, Until they stop putting that cheap black finish on them that wears off quickly and will RUST, I won't consider buying one.

    Here's a frightening photo:

    I traded my glock today for an XD, but over all I still like my M&P the most.

    I have owned and fired all three. I still own a G23 and an XD40SC.

    At the range, the Glock and the Smith have failed to eject. The Glock even locked up once on my wife when a pin came loose and backed out. Don't ask me which. I don't know and the rangemaster fixed it in less than two minutes.

    The XD has never failed no matter what ammo I feed it. It shoots where I aim every time, thus it is my number one carry piece.
