My 1st HG. Narrowed to Glock or XD. Input please
Hi guys, im new to the forum and fairly new to handguns in general. I finally decided its time to get one and have been researching like crazy. Ive always known Glocks to be excellent all around weapons as far as reliability, accuracy, etc. The XD series on the other hand is totally new to me.
Ive been to many different gun shops and get different answers from all of them. Alot of people tell me to go wit what feels best to you. Problem is they both feel good in my hand and as far as shooting goes, im not experienced enough to really tell whats better for me. I do like the fact that the glock is substantially lighter but have been told that the recoil is a little stronger because of that. Im looking at a full size model in either a 4 or 5 inch. Ive only had the chance to shoot both models in a 45. cal. That is another confusing topic as well.
I am mostly buying it for home security but definitelly want to have some fun at the range as well. I assumed that a 9mil would be good for both but keep being told that for home protection a 45. is the way to go.
Im completelly baffled by the whole situation and dont even really know what im asking here. I guess just some input from more people than just the gun shop employees. Any input would be appreciated! Thanks
