Hey everyone, New member here, so pardon my newb-ness of the subject matter, as this seems to be debated a million times over everywhere I look. My wife and I are looking to purchase our first handgun for recreational and home purposes. Trying to decide between a Glock 19 or a Springfield XD9... Before replying, here's where we're at: - We have shot both firearms (my wife prefers the Glock) - I'm a lefty, she's a righty (ambi mag release is a plus for me) - Price point is somewhat of a factor (XD is about $50-100 cheaper in my area) - XD grip safety (pro or con?) - Neither of us will not be carrying this firearm That's about it. I know Glock users will tell me get the Glock and all others will say XD...and obviously, this is Glocktalk.com, which I'm aware of Other questions: - If Glock: Gen 3 or 4? - If Springfield: XD or XDm? Just looking for some unbiased and honest opinions for a first time gun buyer! I can't make up my mind!!! Thanks in advance... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
