UPDATED 2/26/12 with range review and target pics posted farther down the thread My wife decided to get a new handgun afterall. We already have EMP, LCP, PPK, PM9, 92FS, 92compact, 642, 637, PT1911AR, 26, 17G4, GP100, DW44, 2206, and a single-action .22 revolver. It was essentially a birthday present, anything she wanted. Over the past couple months she was thinking about a Glock 19, then nothing, then maybe something. I wasn't sure if she wanted something for carry, or for teaching other women, or for IDPA. I've switched from the 92 to the Glock 17 G4 for my IDPA type shooting, and I think that influenced her, as she really likes how the 17 shoots. So after a couple months of looking, she decided on the Springfield XD, 9mm, 4". She liked the grip and trigger more than any other gun. All I had to say was, if you want a "fill in the blank" don't worry about the price. Came down to comparing the 19 to the XD, and then she picked the XD, liking the grip more. Any opinions about the XD? Any comments at all would be welcome, as I don't know much about them Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
