    There is not a whole lot of difference IMO. After shooting my .40sc, my wife is now agitated that she didn't get the .40sc instead of her 9sc (she is little). So now I need to keep an eye on the .40

    Consider it gone. She'll take it eventually. My wife always gets what she wants.

    If an XD or Glock meet your requirements, then I don't see any reason to spend more. Both are great manufacturers.

    You just described an XD. Although they didn't start the plastic revolution, they perfected it.

    (Both are good guns; I just had to say it.)

    Actually HK made the first polymer framed pisto, so technically HK would be the original

    Speaking of HK I think you would be doing yourself a disservice if you do not look at the P2000 sub compact. That is a high quality firearm right there. Although Glock's, XD's and the S&W MP's are very nice and work well, I believe that the quality is that much better in the HK, Sig line up.

    Choosing any listed above you cannot go wrong though IMO, It's about what you can afford and what you like.

    Indeed. All of the above manufacture great weapons.
