I had an XD45c and mistakenly sold it. Now I'm in the market for a new one.

I wanted one for years, and almost got a .357 a few years ago. Now, there are just too many ahead of it on the list to consider. Never heard an owner bash one in person. Seems like a great little gun, but less is more, as far as those extra parts go.

My line up:
Glocks: G26, G21SF and G30SF. All have 3.5# connectors W/.25 trigger job and extended slide lock. All are accurate and reliable.

XD45 service model with PRP ultimate compitition trigger kit. Verry accurate and 100% reliable. Trigger is better than any Glock that I own and is my favorite to shoot at the range.

Other guns: S&W 66-2, Browning buck mark, Ruger MKII 6 7/8 slab side.

I go to XDTALK to comment on XD's.

I am here to show so XD love. I have a XD 45 Tactical Compact in dark earth. I love this weapon, it is my EDC. The day I bought this XD I almost bought a Glock 21, then I saw the XD setting in the case. I asked to check it out and it was love at first sight (feel). I loved how it felt in my hand. The Glock 21 was very bulky so I got the XD and not the 21. I'm still a huge Glock fan and still think Glocks are the best. I have a custom Glock 17 with all the bells and whistles. I cant help it, I just love my XD45 over the 21. Both are very good weapons. The feel of the XD45 out did the Glock 21. This is my XD love.

I absolutely love my XDm 9mm 4.5"! It's my first gun, so I'm no expert by any means, but when I went out looking I handled many different models. As soon as I held the XDm in my hand, it was love!

#1 Glocker is right about the XD .45ACP Tactical (mine has a full-sized grip) vs. the G21. I own the G36, which I like. But the double-stack .45ACP Glocks just feel like blocks. The XD's ergonomics are superb for my hands.

Plenty love for the XD here.

I have owned 6 different XD's now. My first was a XD45 Tactical, which I still own. I also still have a XD40sc for CCW. All the others got sold off to fund new interests, but I would buy back all of them except the XDm9. I like the regular XD frame better for some reason.

My favorite XD's are the XD45T and the XD9sc.

I've owned three Glocks over the years, a G22 and a couple different G19's. You couldn't give me another G22, I hated that gun. Now the G19....great gun. I'd take another in a heartbeat, if there weren't any XD's. I could outshoot my G19 with my XD9sc, so the G19 went away. But my G19's never failed me. Of course, none of my XD's have ever failed in any way.

Bottom line the XD is a fine weapon for those of us who like it's ergo's, but there will only be so much love for it on a forum devoted to it's primary competitor.

The reverse is apparent over at XDTalk. And then there's the S&Wforum guys who don't like either the Glock or the XD's....and the Sig group, and the real snobs....H&K lovers.

I'm an XD fanboy!!! I'm just the opposite though, I shoot my G19 slightly better than my XD9sc but damn does the XD with the 16 round mag fit my hand fantastic. I've shot the XDM 3.8 9mm and .40, the XDM 45 and the XD9, all were just awesome IMO. My next gun will be an XD or XDM.

Never shot one until last Christmas. I bought my son a XD Tactical .45 because he wanted it over a G19. Got it home and WOW!!! I love the thing, nice trigger (better than my Glocks) and it's a shooter. Then my wife spotted the new XDM 9mm. compact, well she got that for mothers day.... DOUBLE WOW!!! The ability to go 19+1 or 13+1 is sweet! It shoots so smooth and accurate that now I might fetch one up for myself if it comes out in .45 Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Glocks, BUT I LOVE these XD/XDM guns too. Wish Glock would offer a high cap/low cap carry model with all the bells and whistles.

if they made the XDM in 10mm i'd be all over it. i like the grip. The glock is more easily detail stripped, but thats pretty picky. Both are good guns.

XDm compact vs. Glock 19 Gen4

I just purchased an XDm 3.8 compact 9mm. I'm carrying the Glock 19 at this time. I'm having trouble making the transition! The XDm seems more recoil sensitive than the Glock19. After operating with the lower bore axis of the 19 the XDm compact feels like there's a ton of bricks on top of the frame when I bring the pistol up. Am I the only Glocker that experiences this?
Don't get me wrong... The XDm attracted me for many reasons. I actually like the idea of the grip safety and the match grade barrel is suppose to handle +P loads without trouble. I guess I should try to compare it to my G26 for a fair comparision instead of the G19.

Sippo, the XDm has a taller slide than the Glock and theirs nothing you can do but get used to it. I have heard that you will feel more recoil because of the taller slide but I personally have never experienced this. I have owned 4 XDm's and many Glocks and I can not tell a difference in recoil. I have noticed that the slide is taller but it does not bother me. I traded my last two gen4 Glocks for two XDm competition pistols and never regretted it.

I plan on buying G26,17,30 and 21 all gen4 when the money is available but I still prefer the XDm over the Glocks.

Have a G19, but when I decided to go to .45acp for everyday carry I had to go with the XD compact. The Glock was wayyy to thick in my hand when chambered in .45acp, but the XD is perrrrfect. The ergos are slightly different, but it's width is approximately the same as my G19. I prefer the finish on the Glock, as it's more Teflon-like, but the trigger on the XD is MUCH nicer. Although certainly not a deal killer for the Glock, the XD take-down lever is much nicer. I like the "cocked" indicator at the back of the slide on the XD too. Both guns are stock BTW. Now if I could get my hands on an XDm, that would be awesome... but alas, I'm in the people's republic of kali :(

I like how the XD feels in my hand, nice ergonomics, but not crazy about that grip safety.

Count me as a big XDm fan. A great way to use .45 ammo effectively.

i have four XDs [not to be confused with the XD(S)].

i have...
XD 9MM service model
XD .40 S&W service model
XD .45 ACP tactical
XDm 5.25 competition bi-tone

love 'em all, great ergos, especially the 5.25, with multiple backstraps. all are great shooters, i am especially fond of the .45 tactical, it is so derned accurate. the 5.25 is no slouch in the accuracy department, either. but let's face it, it is not a .45 ACP.

my only beef is/are the sights. they are difficult, to impossible to drift in the dovetail.

if and when they make a 10MM XDm i'd sell my frontrow seat in hell to get one, if i had to.

What is it about the grip safety do people not like. I like it because it's passive, but I notice a few people mentioning it.

If they offer a 10mm just don't stand in my way or I'll send you to your seat.
