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.
