The only XD that I have shot is the .45tac. That thing felt like a big brick the first time I drawed it up to fire. I didn't think it was ever going to run out of ammo. After a few mags I really started to like it. I think it's a great platform even if people say it's a Glock copy. Guess I'd like a Glock too but I have never shot one. Been thinking about a 9mm Compack maybe one day.
