    Glocks and XDs are both good choices. The Glock sits a little lower in your hand, so it probably won't bounce/flip quite as much when fired, and they are a bit more rust-resistant than the XDs in my experience (speaking to your intended use as a truck-gun). The XDs have a more refined trigger pull and nicer/sturdier sights than the Glocks straight-out-of-the-box.

    I'm a big Glock fan, myself (have several, all 9mms). Can't really go wrong with a Glock in 9mm.

    Welcome to the forum! If you haven't already done so, please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the Forum Guidelines

    You won't go wrong with either of your choices. Try to rent them both and go with what you shoot better and feels better in your hand.

    Welcome from southeast Texas. As DJ said, either is a good choice for your applications.

    welcome

    Welcome to the forum and to guns in general. My advise to you would be find a gun range that rents several different models and brands and try several of them out. You may find out that you just don't shoot Glocks well but are very accurate with another brand. Try as many as you can before you make a decision.
