Well I never had shot a Glock untill my daughter bought a G-19 just like yours. I am impressed with that pistol. I liked everything about it but the looks. You got to admitt the Glock,XD, and M&P are all ugly. Ater shooting them all I like the G-19 the best. Yes I think there's one in my future. [I here Mike smiling now.] Mr Spartan you done well. Good luck wit it.
reminds me of the commerical where the guy get hit on the head....
wow I could have had an xd!!!
Nothing wrong with the Glock. I'm an XD guy, but it's because I like how they feel better in my hand. Spartan's got a good gun that's going to be reliable and fun for him to shoot.

Yeah, the poly guns are kinda ugly, but they work well.
Mike's now on a mission to get everyone to carry a Kel Tec in an ankle holster, regardless if you wear shorts all day or not.
I too like the XD a lot; I have one in 45. I have yet to handle one with the shortened frame. 'Six of one, half dozen the other' for me regarding Glocks and XD's. I've just been in a Glock mood lately.
As far as range report, it took all of a day to get the new Glock there. 200 WWB rounds through. Fun little gun. I kept few of the better targets. Lower paper is from a rested position with the gun on its case (that low one was my fault); upper & middle are from a standing, unsupported position... all from ~21'. The circle around the "X" is 1 & 5/8" in dia., for reference.
The consensus: . This little guy and I are going to get along quite well.
Now I want to get one of those 33 round G18 mags just for the hell of it. Practical? Not at all. Fun? Absolutely.
