It's funny, I took a weekend pistol class earlier this year and I'm not exaggerating when I say that 95% of the malfunctions were with 1911s and other fancier guns. But so many people are devoted to them! It reminds me of people who love their classic Camaro or Firebird... lots of fun when they're working well. But reliable? Not really. I don't want to get flamed by 1911 fans because they're really nice-looking guns with great triggers (and maybe I just wish I had the extra cash to get one), but I've got to believe that owning one is as much about nostalgia and image than rationality. The XDsc ain't the prettiest thing, but it's performance makes it look better and better every day. I used to think Honda Civics were kind of ugly until I drove one that had well over 100K miles and didn't have to much more than change oil.

Yes many people love their 1911s, me included, but very few are totally reliable with out some additional work being done to them. But 1911s are like Harleys with all their faults once you shoot one you just have to own one. :D

Zero failures after thousands of rounds is pretty good IMHO. I am definitely sold on the XD. I just wish I was accurate as it is.

I have also witnessed shooting classes where the most expensive 1911's are jamming way too often.

However, in the next (more advance class), all of those same guns were running perfectly because the owners got them finished by a gunsmith. Most of them said they had no idea their guns were this unreliable until they shot them under the pressure of a class.

The only Glock I ever saw have problems was so dirty and dry the instructor made the student clean it over lunch.... he didn't know how to take it apart so he just never cleaned it. I wish I had a picture, you'd never believe how bad it was.

XDs? Jamming? NO! NO! NO!
where is the kool aid?
