Less Recoil Glock 19 or XDSC 9mm?
Let me hear your thoughts on which has less recoil a Glock 19 or an XDSC 9mm?

Welcome to the forum!
Perceived recoil is a very subjective thing. However, the XD is significantly heavier than the Glock (29 ounces v. 20 ounces), which will mitigate felt recoil.

Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

... Both are 9mm. I wasn't aware that 9mm really had "recoil".
But no really, both of them are great guns and similar in design so I doubt there will be much difference. As Matt pointed out, the XD is a bit heavier so would probably soak up more recoil. Not like 9mm is very hard to handle, though... Good grip and stance go a long way

Again, welcome to the forum.
Weight is a very big part of recoil... feel is another. Go shoot them both for yourself, but comparing a compact with a sub-compact is an interesting comparison. Personally, I would compare a sub-compact with a sub-compact. Glock 26 would compare better to the XDsc 9mm. I like the Glock 26 much better than the XDsc.
Once again, go shoot them both for yourself and see which one you like best. The 9mm is a very easy load to handle in most all handguns today.

while I haven't shot the G19 and the XD9 side by side, I have shot the G23 and XD40 in the same session (different calibers, same "platform comparison").
I noticed more "felt recoil" with the XD, probably because of the higher bore-axis...I definately prefer the Glock (for other reasons as well).

Same here. A bit more flip in 9 and .40 but not a whole lot. If I liked the XD better, it wouldn't influence my decision much, if at all.

The XD's, model-to-model, present with less recoil than their G-rock counterparts. That said, it's only 9mm. There really isn't much recoil there to begin with.
