    Glock, XD, or M&P

    It seems like these 3 are the top competitors in their category.( pre-cocked striker fire). Glock of course beening the top dog for many years and then the XD came along and stole a little bit of its thunder. And then the M&P came along and stole some more. It seems like we have a ton of Walther(Myself included) people here but this forum seems pretty unbiased for the most part. So I was wondering which one of these you people would prefer.

    So which is it?

    I know for me it's the M&P. I got rid of my Glock and my XD when I got the M&P. It fits me perfectly and shoots better for me than ether of the two. especially Glocks, I never really could hit anything very well with Glocks.

    I would have put the Walther also but I put the Walther is a different category because it's DA/SA.

    Well, there is actually a QA version of the Walther that match the others...

    BUt, I would pic a Glock give your 3 choices, IF, IF IF it is the Glock 34 - Only Glock I like - comes with a lighter trigger stock...

    Glock is the only truly proven design of the three.

    GLOCK has an established reputation and parts/service industry (both aftermarket and factory). Plus an entire network of crtified armorers.
    Their factory support and service is unmatched.

    Voted M&P.

    I love my M&P 9. I sold my G21 in favor of a 1911, but I like the M&P so much, I'll probably get the M&P 45.

    Of the choices given for me the M&P hands down, but Glocks have never worked for me and I had an XD and just did not like it, no real reason why, just did not care for it.

    I didn't vote because I've only shot the Glock and that is what I carry so I'm bias.

    For me it was close between M&P and XD. I like the feel of the M&P better though.

    SD - i don't own any of the options but have owned or tried them all. i really liked the xd. handled well and shot straight. i would have gottn the 5" 45 but my budget wouldn't allow it at the time. i have since found others that i like better. maybe someday.

    Like shoes, you have to try them on yourself. I rented the Glock 19 and XD9 side by side during two trips to the range. Both times I left saying I like the XD9 better.

    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.

    Yeah, you'll find the same thing at the M&P forum.

    How about a Glock with the 1911 style rear safety?

    Glock is Good, Glock is Great...

    The safety is automatically engaged on a Glock when you holster it, too, as logn as you don't leave your finger on the trigger when you do it... which also would mean that the web of your hand was still on the grip. Right? What I'm saying is, if you train right and do right, they're functionally the same.

    I can't help but feel like the XD craze is partly everyone getting on something new, partly the (admittedly well-executed) propaganda coming from Springfield Armory, and partly elitists having to have something different / 'better' than the masses.

    Grip angles from the Glock to the XD to my 1911? I don't notice the difference. They all point naturally in my hand. The low bore axis of the Glock is very nice, but I could have that with a Makarov (also an extremely nice-pointing and shooting pistol, and cheap to boot!).

    The reasons to buy a Glock are:
    1. They are tested to death and they always go bang.
    2. They are prolific; you can get any kind of holster / accessories you can imagine, and with all the competition for the market Glock stuff is semi-reasonably priced. You will always be able to get parts / work done on a Glock.
    3. Again, the larger market means plentiful magazines in the right capacities for (sorta') reasonable prices.
    4. Having probably the same pistol as the local constabulary makes you seem less of a 'hitman / gun- nut' in a legal situation. This is a negligible reason (until you get to court, when any help will be welcome in the face of insane litigation).
    5. Glock pistols have a G.E.D.-simple manual of arms. Carry with a round in the pipe, draw weapon and identify / index threat and pull trigger, repeat until threat is neutralized. K.I.S.S. rule in full effect. This is probably the best reason to buy a Glock.

    If you feel that Glock triggers are no good, you need to invest in about 300 rounds of ammo and maybe some training. Personally, I have no trouble making accurate hits with my Glocks off-hand out to 20 yards and sometimes further (if you shoot someone at this distance or further, you may have difficulty justifying them as a threat in court).

    If I could only own one pistol (perish the thought!!) I would probably keep either my Glock 19 or Glock 23, whichever one I was assured would be easiest to get / manufacture ammo for (leaning towards the G23 because of the bigger holes). They aren't my prettiest guns, but they are an excellent combination of shootability, firepower, and concealability, and of course reliability.

    They are all great names, but my vote goes to the XD. I do like that Glock 34 though!

    I've shot all three...

    ...and I like the XD, it fit best in my hand. Number 2 is the M&P then the Glock.

    kenjihara, I believe propellerhead ment to say disengage as that is what the the grip safety does when the grip is released.

    Maybe I have it backwards. When the safety is engaged, that means the gun won't fire, right? Safety device engaged means its making the gun safe. And when the safety is disengaged, the gun can fire. That was my thinking when I said the grip safety is engaged when you holster the gun because your hand is not pressing on it.

    WOW!
    So far:
    XD=25
    Glock=17
    M&P=12

    I thought that Glock would be by far the most popular because they've been around so long. I knew that XDs were really popular but good grief.
