    You almost never hear about failures on glcoks "almost" But I heard about a few on the Xd as of lately. I'm thinking of either a 9mm or a .40 cal. The price of ammo might change my mind many times over. So the thoughts are either the 19/23 or the 4" service from Springfield or the 26/27 from Glock or the XDSC from springfield. I will use this gun for carring and for just fun plinking with the family. Thanks for the advise

    Glocks have as many malfunctions as XDs, but mostly you hear about glock leg, you know, the lack of safeties that cops end up shooting themselves in the leg

    Main reason to buy an xd over a glock is the grip angle, go shoot a glock and an xd and whichever one you shhot best, go buy, try a m&p too

    It doesn't matter. Rent the ones you think you'll like, and then purchase the one that "feels" the best to you. Glock/XD. There really isn't much separating them except personal preference.

    And it doesn't matter how many responses you get on this... you will not be one step closer to deciding. =)

    My biggest reason for buying the XD was quite simple... As I saw it, the people on this forums tended to be more helpful and mature.

    Buy a Glock. That way you won't have to worry about a failure ever.:rolleyes:

    Sarcasm aside. I don't care what gun you buy. All manufacturers have had issues at some point.

    Buy the one that feels better in your hand and shoot better with. That's the one you'll want to carry.

    You shouldn't get an XD. Get a glock I don't make money of XD sales.
