That's a reasonable price I paid $599 for mine before all the hysteria hit.

I put them XDs right next to the Glock case full of the 36's, 30 and 30S...the XDs literally flew out of the store.

Of course I got a load of HK P30s in now
Where are you located? Im looking for a G30S

I owned a G30 and owned a 3.8 XDM in .45 at one time. Can't offer any opinion on the Gen4 G30...never handled one.

They're both good guns, neither suited me despite my love of .45

Each model to me had it's pros and cons. I liked and disliked them both for very different reasons.

If I were forced to pick between the two it would be the G30. Mainly due to the greater availability of aftermarket parts and accessories and a few design aspects between the two.

Again though, they're both very good options for a compact .45, it's just going to come down to your own personal taste.

I have the Glock 21 SF, 30 and the 36. I got the 36 last. I cared the 30 and found it to heavy and to thick. So I got the 36, I like it best for carry. I like to shoot the 21, it's the easiest to shoot. The 36 isn't bad to shoot but it is so much smaller and lighter the kick is snappy. I wouldn't want to put 100 rounds down range through it at one time. When I shoot the 36 I put no more than fifty through it at a time. It is accurate and I like it very much for carry. It isn't a tinny little gun like the LCP. Yet it is quit easy to carry.

Nice, no looking back - you'll appreciate that pistol for sure!
Buy additional magazines DIRECTLY from Springfield Armory - it's about a five week wait.but I assure you, best quality and price in my view.
Congratulations on deciding.

Had I the free money, I'd buy the XDm 3.8 in a heartbeat! I don't think I've ever seen or handled a better BUG - Ever! Normally I don't like XD(m) anythings; the balance is just too off for me; but this new, little, XDm, 3.8, 45 ACP pistol has WINNER written all over it!

Arc Angel, that's what I thought, I went in wanting a Glock and the gun store worker was so busy, he just said "try this" and walked away. I fondled for a while and walked away undecided. I do like the gen 4 Glocks finish and backstraps more than other Glocks.
I will like getting back to a .45. Miss my 1911.

For many calibers I prefer the Glock, but in .45ACP, I do not, and I chose the XD. The size and comfort seals it. Easily the better gun for me (speaking for me!) in that caliber.

Some talk about required trigger jobs, and I agree the triggers on both can be improved, but out of the box, I'd put the XD and Glock at a very similar level (no "Perfection" on either, but both perfectly acceptable... certainly not something I view as a real differentiator).

Glock just didn't do as nice a job dealing with the .45ACP in my book. But if you like the feel of the Glock better, go with it!

I will stick with the XD .45ACP, though!

I cannot get my tiny midget hands around the double stack glock frame. Double stack Para, no problem. Carry the Kimber, no problem. Be accurate with a gloc, for me- no way. I chose the XDs for my latest cc pistol. Love it so far. 250 rds through it and no hiccups yet.

i orginally had the same outlook on the dbl vs single stack frames due to my stubby short fingers and the reason my first glock was a g36 single stack. but i quickly realized with the proper grip the dbl stacks are no problem (thanks to HICKOK45 utube training vids...)

from what i'm seeing from XD web site the are much larger and heavier than the glocks. which model do u have?
