Went to the Dark side with a XDm
Ok I bought/traded for and 4.5 OD green, stainless steal 9mm. This was my first XD I have owned or shot, I currently own 6 glocks and various other pistols.
It shot different than the glocks thus a different aim as with any different pistol. I can't say I liked or dis liked it. The trigger is light but soft, not crisp. Shooting it wasn't bad, I hit what i aimed at, but it just wasnt a Glock. I think I will keep it, but at the same time i don't think I am going to start buying XD's.
Oh and cleaning them are a pain compared to a glock. So many odd grooves etc.
If I didn't have any glocks I could be happy with it.
I can't say I shoot the Glocks better then the XD, funny thing, my Dad doesn't shoot much and he couldn't make a good group with my or his Glocks, but he picked up the XD and nailed it. It was like a supernatural event or something. I guess for some folks the grip angle makes a difference, it didn't make a difference for me. This also happened in reverse for a friend of mine, he couldn't make a good group with a XD, but rehit the same hole several times with a glock, go figure.
