    I'm a Glock 23 guy.......it's a wonderful sidearm.

    I've looked at the xd45 compacts, they're good guns. I would feel wonderful if I had one on my side.

    Get the xd! Worst case......get to a range that'll rent an xd and others and shoot 'em all till you convince yourself one way or the other.

    Reasons not to get the XD...
    1. You don't want to pay money to get a gun.
    2. You prefer your trusty slingshot.
    3. You would rather buy a similar gun for 2-3x the price.
    4. Good ole reliability just isn't an option for you.

    Honestly, the reason to get it are up to you. Its a great gun, but if it doesn't fit you or you aren't going to spend the time to shoot it you might want to get something else.

    How about, "Because a Glock is a simpler machine and will therefore probably serve better, even if marginally"?

    How about a gun made by people who have been making Quality guns for centuries....I.E. Austrians, and or Germans vs...the Croatians who have only been making the XD for the last few years.

    1. You don't want to pay money to get a gun.
    I'm not, Santa (wife) is
    2. You prefer your trusty slingshot.
    Can't - the band broke
    3. You would rather buy a similar gun for 2-3x the price.
    4. Good ole reliability just isn't an option for you.
    Reliability is NOT an option - it's a requirement for me!

    OK. You all talked me into it - the xd it is!!!
    Thanks guys

    Reasons to not get the XD45 compact.
    1. You don't want to own one of the most versatile polymer framed pistols on the market.
    2. You don't want to own one of the sweetest shooting 45s
    3. You don't want a pistol that conceals well with the 10rd mag, but still can carry 24 rounds of 45acp with 1 reload.
    4. Oh **** just go buy one and enjoy.

    The only reason I can think of not getting the XD45 is that it's not the XD45 Compact... I own the XD45 Service model, and it's gonna be getting a little brother soon... the 45 Compact!

    Best pistol i've owned to date!! by far

    One reason.

    hmmmm

    Uh, give me a minute.

    Oh, wait, I have some!!

    It's an evil black assault pistol?
    It will shoot you all by itself?
    Everytime someone buys an XD, God kills a puppy?

    Oh, you want TRUE reasons?

    I cannot think of a single one.

    One thing I WILL say. Don't sell it. I had an XD. i sold it. Have regretted it ever since.

    my only reason for not buying one was because they didn't have a bi-tone model... three weeks ago i finally relented and just bought the all black model. i liked it before i shot it. now that i've shot it, i absolutely love it.

    Really though, shoot it before you buy it. Then shoot a glock or some other pistol before you buy. Shoot them and see which shoots more accurately for you naturally, without the sights.
