    G36 vs Springfield Xds

    The specs on these weapons are really close. You loose 1 round in the mag with the xds. I carry a glock 36 and dont see any reason to pick the xd, but im biased lol. I would go with the proven system with glock and let someone else work out the kinks on the xds.Maybe this will get glock to make a flush mag for the g36.

    I agree! I was a little intrigued by the xds but I feel that I would take (or in your case keep) the Glock because you know that it'll always go BOOM!

    I have 2 40 S&W Glocks and 2 45 ACP Glocks: 23/27/30/36.

    I stick to what works and doesn't have an external safety. Though I also carry a backup P238. I have no problem using the smaller caliber.

    As for the XDS, I'm not a huge fan of external safeties on a defensive gun and the grip safety is one extra thing that can malfunction.

    I recommend a 36. It's a nice size.

    owning both a glock and and XD, I would trust both, but would lean towards Glock.

    I have both but only carry a g36. I like the trigger takeup, break and reset on my Glock!

    The biggest thing on the Springfield XDs over Glock is its thinness

    I say neither, I could carry a G19 with way more capacity at almost the same size.

    Honestly I think they made this gun to compete against glock. The biggest gap in size difference is the height but that's just the mag on g36. The barrel is a bit longer on the g36 therefore the overall length is increased but I think that would help with accuracy.

    Agreed. Either a G19, or a G30 or G30SF.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Way I see it is you have more ammo than a revolver. If you need more than 7 rounds buy the other guns you guys mentioned. Just in case i need more than the avg of 2 shots and use all 7, I carry a extra mag.
