Buy the gun that feels best in your hand, points the most naturally for you and you have the most confidence in.

Both are great guns.

To most people they feel and handle very differently. Unless you get the chance to fire examples of both of them, I'd go with what felt best in my hand.

Good Luck,

That's a hard choice. I would find someplace to rent or borrow both and see which you like when shoot them.

I have a XD9 and a GLOCK 23. I think both are great guns however for me the XD feels better. I have not fired the XD40 so I can not compare between the two directly. Find out which works best for you go to a range that rents both.
On concern with XD40 may be fail to feed problems. Before the forum was hacked there were seveal post about this. It seemed to be only the 40

Seems like the big issue is the rust problem with the XD slides. Superior finish on the Glocks.

The GLOCK does have a better finish than the XD that is a given. However if you spend the extra time and effort in care for the XD you will not have a problem.

There's fix for the XD40 FTF problems that's posted here somewhere, IIRC...

Treat the XD like you would any other blued firearm and you won't have a problem. OR, you can get a coating that is even harder and more durable than the Glocks and still have spent less :)

What coating do you recommend (I'd like to keep in blue) and from what supplier? Cost

whole thread on coatings in this section just below this one. I personally am going to go with the H&R in an OD green for under 100 bucks. I don't need it since I keep my weapons maintained, but figured it wouldn't hurt getting it done.

Last year I sold all my Glocks and bought two xd-9's, svc model and sc. I sold my Glocks cause my Glock 23 went KABOOM, blew the magazine right out, destroyed lots of the internals. However, the problem was not the Glock -- I had a reload or two dumped in my ammo can with the Speer and Winchester. The G. manual advises, do not shoot reloads. Glock repaired it, and the buddy I was shooting with purchased the 23 from me. Then I sold the 35 and the two 27s; went back to a round with less pressure, 9mm.
I prefer the xd-9 to the Glocks also cause it has the loaded chamber indicator and a cocked indicator. Many 1911 shooters prefers the way it points vs the Glocks.
My accuracy was just fine with the Glocks, paticularly the 35; and it is very good or better with my xd-9s.
If I were a leo, I would not hesitate to get the Glock; always there would be a round in the chamber; the training is coninuous, the Glock is everywhere; most of my friends have Glock 22s for duty.
my 2c.

Its very simple.

Here is a link to a thread I started about this. About half way down the 2nd page you'll see my little write up on who I decided on and why - along with links to all those I sent emails and received responses from. Hope this helps!
