    Do You CCW the Glock 19 or XD-9?

    Hey Guys,

    If you actually CCW either the Glock 19 or the XD-9, please let me know which you prefer and why. Also, any CCW problems you may be aware of and any pro/cons based on your experience.

    I am going to buy one or the other this Friday, so I don't want to hear about any Glock other than the 19 or any Springfield other than the XD-9. Thanks for any help your actual experience can provide.

    Regards,

    just me

    I do the 19, but there is nothing wrong with the XD.
    I like the Glock better, its simple, been around a long time and has proven itself over and over. Parts and mags are easy to get if needed.
    Every holster maker has holsters for the G19.

    Thanks, SIXTO. Is the Glock 19 easy for you to conceal during the summer?

    Hey JD, XD-9 Service. I forgot to mention that. I'm really "jazzed" and Friday is on the way.

    I have the XD9 SC, it hides well and works flawlessly, but you could say that about the Glock.
    The main difference is that Glock lets you buy spare parts and there are more holster options, other than that they are equal guns.

    Get both.

    I know the feeling, sorry to say I don't CC or own either one

    So I'll leave my .02 out, I was just wondering what model you were wanting in comparison the the G19.

    Yup. I'm a plain clothes detective, I wear tshirt and shorts to work, and a G23 in a comptac daily. No one notices, not even other LEO's.

    Pick em both up and see how it fits your hand.

    Both are relaible and exellent guns. Both will do the job.

    The biggest difference is in the "feel". No one can make that determination for you.

    Personally, I like the feel of the XD the best.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    This is excellent advice!!

    As for me, the Glock came before the XD. So I obviously carry the Glock. However, I regularly carry the Glock 26. The Glock 19 is an excellent "Do all gun". If I was regulted to just the 19 I would have no worries. Afterall, the Glock 19 was my first Glock.

    I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six!

    I have owned the XD9 before, and I currently own and carry the Glock 19 everyday. The G19 is my first Glock pistol, and certainly won't be my last. The reason why I choose Glock over the XD is because of the availability of replacement and aftermarket parts, but you can't go wrong with either one. Good luck, and let us know which one you choose.

    I had a Glock 23 (same size as 19, but in .40) for 14 years. It was a good gun, but never fit my hand. When the XD's got popular, I picked one up and immediately sold my Glock. I now own 4 XD's and carry either the XD 9 subcompact or the XD 45 compact. They are both good, reliable guns, but they feel different. Pick the one that fits you best.

    Same size Glock and XD, I don't think you'll find one of them any harder to conceal that the other.

    It's only a matter of which one you like, shoot and feels the best.

    I carry a G-23 (G-19 size) and an XD9sc (G-26 size) as a back up gun.

    I've had the Glock for 8 years and the XD for last two months.... The XD is really growing on me in many ways besides it being extremely accurate.

    If you don't shoot each of the two you are looking at first, you might be doing yourself a disservice in passing on one that you may have liked better.

    I will say you won't go wrong with either of them and don't think there's much different in concealing one over the other.

    i ccw an XD9 service model in the winter. i don't prefer the XD to the G19 for ccw reasons, i just prefer the feel of the XD9 in my hand. i can't ccw the XD9 in the summer cause it's a bit too big for my body, but during the winter when i'm wearing a couple of extra layers i can hide it no problem.

    Feel is what it came down to for me, I was deciding between a G26 and XD9SC. I went in wanting a G26 until I picked up the XD and it just fit, for me anyway.

    Good luck, with your 2 choices I'm sure you'll come out just fine.
