    i appreciate your letting us know what you decided to get. most of the time those of us who put in our two cents never find out what the OP finally did. thanks

    get the idea yet....

    either one will be just fine. pick the one you want, for whatever reasons you want.

    whatever one you choose, some will agree, some will disagree, and others like me will yawn.
    Yes, and you will eventually end up buying a Glock.

    I'm a Glock man through and through...the XD would also serve you well, I just hate to see you buy the XD and then have to sell it and buy a Glock.
    I'm always thinking ahead.

    I'm not a fan of the .40, but that's not the question.

    I'm not a big fan of the grip safety on the XD. If it weren't for that, I would have an XD. The gun is much more comfortable than the glock and feels nicer. It has a better grip angle as well.

    The grip safety is just dumb. It ruins what would be the best pistol out there. I had an xd in .357 sig, I went back to a glock after a cab driver I knew was shot and killed because he couldn't get a shot off behind him due to the grip safety.
    The #1 tactical mistake is putting yourself in a situation that requires you to use your weapon...

    ...but if the situation indeed presents itself,

    Sorry about your cabbie friend. But I have a couple of XDs and have never, ever, ever had any type of failure with the grip safety. I don't even notice its there. Nor, have I ever seen documented proof of grip safety failure. I've heard it mentioned....from friends of a friends monkeys uncle that once owned an XD and now only owns Glocks. Imagine that....
