    How many rounds have you fired through it since that first round?

    I have the XD45 Acp and have not had a single malfunction with roughly 1000 rounds. I could not be happier.

    I used to have two XD's and never once had a problem with them. Usually when people complain about a polymer frame pistol jamming, it's user error (limp-wristing) and not the gun.

    I highly recommend the XD 45ACP.

    I just recently started my collection - shot many guns, including a couple of GLocks. Never got what all the fuss was about with them - especially after I shot an XD, XDm and M&P. I have the M&P in a 9mm and love it. I also have the XD in a 45 and love it too. Both shoot very well, with very manageable recoil. I didn't want to get a S&W since I already had one and was spreading around my purchases to expand my collection (got a Beretta 92, Sig 220, XD45, M&P 9, and S&W 39-2) - but it is a very likeable gun and has a slight edge over the XD. Remember though, I haven't shot the M&P in a 45. I think you'ds be very happy with either of those two choices.

    well i bought an XD45 ACP today at the gunshow i like it more than i thought i did. need a different holster tho. the one that they come with doesnt work well on my belt. too loose and my belt is pretty tight. might get a fobus like i got for my glock.

    I agree with akr! I recently shot my colleague's XD45 and it was great. Minimal recoil, accurate, etc.

    Good luck!

    I'm not real big on striker fired weapons but between an XD, Glock, and an M&P I'll take the Springfield. All three are excellent weapons. I just see the XD as a little better feel. But that's just me.

    Like I said. All they all are quality weapons. The scale should tip on the feel in YOUR hand.

    If none feel bad in your hand, than the scale should tip to the one you shoot the best if you can borrow or rent first.
    I have a XD9 & M&P9. Both feel good & shoot great.
    IMHO XD, GLOCK, & M&P are the best choices out there, but from what I've read, they all tend to have less problems in 9MM.

    I've had an XD45 Service for a while and haven't had any ftf or fte problems in the 900 or so rounds I've shot. It does come with 13 round mags if you live in state that allows them. Really accurate an reliable - and a breeze to clean.

    That's one of the nicest things about my XD 40. It field strips so easy. lock it back, flip it up, slide it off. it just makes sense!
