Coltman is on to something, I like Glocks but I've come to love the M&P's they have a better feel IMO, chech out their "Pro Series" has the better trigger, night sights if you change your mind. Good luck

I say get the Glock 23. If you don't mind getting a new round. If you don't want to get a new round, the Glock 30SF should do you good.

Glock 30 is a great gun, but for me it was a bit of a brick to carry. I had the 30 and 36, and the 36 carries so much more comfortably. I eventually ended up selling the G30. I'd never sell the 36 and I knew that the first time I carried it! I don't know if the pictures show it well enough, but the feel is very different:
Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!
I like .45 ACP...but I prefer that subsonic platform to be large with a large barrel...read: G21SF.
For carry....I like the G26. 10 + 1 capability. I fire it accurately and zip muzzle flip...easy to stay on target.
It all comes down to going down the dark holes after monsters. Thatís what itís all about; when everyone else is huddled around the campfire, somebody has to go out and fight.
Glock 23. That's my favorite. I highly suggest it or the 19.
In my mind Glock is synonymous with 9mm handgun. I think that is where Glock has achieved perfection. Either way my advice is try a Glock in 9mm even with your XDs. It is a great gun and you may end up getting rid of your XDs. I also like the Glock in .45 ACP but I have little experience with them other than just messing around with my friends Glock 21.
I think the G36 stands out from the other Glocks... just something special about that one!

Go with a G29 or G30. Can't go wrong with a .45 or 10mm

I have two glocks :17 and 26.I used an extension on the 26 so I can use glock 17 magazines on it.It makes the 26 about the same size as the 19 which I
find small.If I was going to buy another glock it would be the 34 which is another 9mm .It's bigger than the 17. I have a S&W 99 in 45 as that 's the trigger the first time you pull the trigger it's a long pull,the following shot you can set it so it's a hair trigger! After a little bit of practice you can become rel proficenant with this handgun.I got it for a Christmas present.I wrote down the model and caliber that I wanted.The next year I did the same thing and got a Springfield 1911 loaded hicap which means this baby can spit out 13+1 has a skeleton trigger,night sites and bunch of internal stuff I have to look at but those are my choices for 45 carry.
I carry a G30 or G29SF.They are both fine carry guns IWB.I like them both so much that I have a hard time deciding what one to carry.But the G29SF is such a power house in such a small package that I would choose it.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
There are so many Glocks to choose from. I carry a G32 or a G19 EDC the 32 is on the 19 platform but a .357sig. I just found a G34 OD a couple days ago and grabbed a G17 . But i hear nothing but good reviews from G30sf and G36 owners and how good these shoot amazes me. My Armorer carries a G36 he loves it. But looking around is fun, good luck on your new glock
