    ...after putting an XD45 in my hand last week (just to look at), it felt so much better than my G21, I think I have to buy one now. If it shoots anywhere near my Glock, I will be happy with it.
    The lifetime warranty isn't such a bad deal either.

    Exactly my experience, I went shopping for a Glock and came home with an XD.

    I went to the Gunshow with an open mind. Never have owning a handgun before.

    I looked up all the info I could find on each different kinds of handguns...and found a Ton or People who love the Glock. Some that like the HK and a few beretta lovers. I was interested in finding something that felt good in my hand, as well as something I would feel comfortable with in case of a SHTF problem came up.

    After holding the Glocks, and the HK's (which i did like btw), and the Beretta PX4 (not bad) As well as the other numerous types, I found myself purchsing a XD40 Service.

    I couldnt be happier about that purchase.:)

    You will not be disappointed in the XD-45's performance. IMO, my XD-45 Tactical shoots just as well as my G21. Additionally, if you get a chance, pickup the July '06 copy of S.W.A.T. magazine. There is a really good article in there on the XD-45 Tactical.

    With me, I never owned a Glock because they never did fit my hand.
    Also, I did have an anti-plastic attitude, but it was inevitable that I'd step into the realm of plastic, eventually. That is, when it seemed right to me.....the Glock didn't, so I didn't! I've always been satisfied with my 1911, so I was in no hurry.

    Now I'm hopelessly hooked on my XD45. Am I the only one on GT, or are there others whom the XD made a "plastic convert" out of?

    Sooner or later, this will pass, too.....as soon as something better comes along....and, I have no doubt that the evolution of handguns has that in store for us.
