    Just slightly rotate the gun slightly in your hand during a mag change (either using you strong or weak hand it take a little practice) this will make access to the magazine release easier. If that does not work for you the XD has an ambi mag release. Have you tried using your trigger finger to push in the mag release button that is on your strong side?

    my mag release on my xd was so tight that i sent it back to springfield and they said that it was within the specs whatever that ment ,they told me to only load 9 rounds instead of 10 in the mag so i did & sure enough the mags slide right out with only the 9 rounds loaded in them, to me this is un excepetable 10 round mags should be able to get used with 10 rds & not 9

    starts off pretty tight - put about 40 or 50 mag change drills through it - mine loosened up a bit, feels real good now.

    You made a great choice. My XD45 has been my primary carry gun for over a year, and I love it. It's my favorite gun, and I'm looking forward to getting a new XDm9 in the very near future. I'm sure that you'll be pleased.

    The XD has a better feeling trigger than the M&P.

    The M&P feels cheap IMO.

    I do agree with the trigger thought but definitely not about the m&p feeling cheap. I think its a very well made handgun.
    Protection is a responsibility not just a right.

    Wonderful choice, if it shoots like my XD-9
    you will have a winner.
