I'm looking for a range gun just to burn some ammo up with and have come down to these three. Let me tell you a bit of what I know of each one and how they feel to me. Then i'll let ya'll jump in and give some advice and maybe point out some things I may have missed that may help me decide.
Glock 19 = My friend has one and I shoot it every know and then and tend to do fairly well with it. The only thing with the Glock is that it feels fat in my hand and I find myself having to grip or regrip to get it to feel just right. As far as the gun running and being reliable he has never had a problem with it as far as I know. I think they have been around for something like 25yrs or so and I know a lot of PD's and other departments use them as well, also I know a lot of your every day joes have them as well and tend to like them. So to me that says something for the Glocks.
XDM 9 (3.8") I know SA has been around for quite awhile and make a good gun as well. I actually had the chance to rent one and shoot it at the range. It feels better in my hand than the Glock and I shot it just a tad better. I'm not sure about the grip safety on it though, not sure what it is it just felt weird. I guess that would be something I would just have to get used to. As far as I know they run good and I havent heard to may complaints about them.
FNX 9 = This one feels the best in my hand and for some reason it feels the lightest of all three. It may just be the balance of the gun for me. As far as the FNX goes i'm pretty much in the dark about them. No one I know has one, and I can't find one to rent to try it out. All I know is they used to only supply firearms to the military untill maybe 15yrs ago or so. Any input on the FN would be great.
I'm not worried about the price because they are only seperated by about $60.00 or $70.00. Now that figures in for the 3rd mag for Glock and SA because the FNX comes with three mags. I am just looking for good, honest thoughts on these guns and why you would or wouldn't buy one. Thanks for your time.
