XDm vs Glock 19

9mm, Glock 19 & XDm (4" or 3.8")

This is for people that have handled and shot both weapons.

Im looking to buy a new handgun and then get ccw & it's between these two pistols. Wanted something smaller, such as a LCP but when I held it, it was kinda too small for my hands.
Since I havent wore the G19 and XD in a IWB holster, Im not sure how they'll conceal with average clothing (shorts/jeans & a shirt)

What are the difference in the two guns?

The glock is around $70-$90 cheaper than the XDm. The glock holds 15+1 compared to the XDm's 19+1 (is 4 rounds something to even consider in this case?)

Anyways, Im wondering, what does the XDm have/do that will justify spending close to $100 more on it, over a glock.....

Which one would be easier to conceal?

I have never actually shot a Glock of any kind, so I can't really give you a complete answer. Last year when I started looking for another pistol I started out looking at the Glocks mainly due to the hype surrounding them. The thing that put me off on them was when I racked the slide one day and almost got bitten by it. I decided that I would probably wind up with a bite sooner or later and asked to look at something else. I wound up with an XDm 9mm 4.5 in. and fell in love at first hold. It does conceal well in a Supertuck but like all full size pistols you have to dress around it or the grip prints a little. The XDm 9 was my first from Springfield but I have since purchased 2 more. The XD .45c is now my EDC. (Smaller grip size w/ the 10 round mag.) I have also recently acquired an XDm .45. I am happy with all of my XDs but you will have to decide for yourself what will work for you.

I have shot a few diffrent Golcks and I own a XD9 service. I would say that if you want a more realistic option for CC then I would go with a Glock 23 (or the 9mm version, dont know the model number right off) or XD sub compact. Im a bigger guy so usually concealing a service size XD isnt to bad for me. It all depends on what feels good in your hands and what you think you can conceal well.

Well, Im 6"4, 200lbs.... if that'd matter in concealing a certain size gun?

I'd def. go with a sub compact version of a pistol if I didnt have big hands... I cant grip them well at all, and if ever had to use it... ehh, may not be too pretty.

The Glock 19 has a shorter grip so it will technically conceal better. I'm 5'10" 205lbs. And I CC my XDM 4.5 just fine as well as my Service 4" model. The Glock 19 is going to be closer in size to the Service model. You are a big dude so you may prefer the feel of the XDm. It's subjective. If you can shoot them both. Go with the one that you shoot the best. You may even try a 4" XD Service since a SC seems to be out of the question for you. Unless you own one already?

I used to own a XD9 service and I liked it ok... just seemed top heavy to me. Other than that, i loved it.

The Glock 19s grip is shorter than the XDM 3.8, thats the part thats hard to conceal. The G19 fits better in my hand because it rides lower. I dont knoe what the guy was talking about with getting slide bitten on a glock, never seen that happen with a glock or XDM. Its all preference, but the 19 is going to conceal better and thats fact.

Having shot a Sig 226, Glock 17 and a XD, 50 rnds each, the difference between the XD and Glock was insignificant to me, the Glock seemed noticeably lighter. I'm one of the few that have a issue with the aiming/pointing of a SIG so it was out. I settled on the XD, it just felt better when I went back to buy.

Either should conceal about the same, as to weather one is worth more than the other that is some thing only you can answer. Having shot Glocks longer I am biased but really you can't go wrong either way.
