I did it. I finally did something I thought I'd never do: in a moment of weakness I bought a Glock. The 30 to be exact. I'm a Springfield guy and have never been truly interested in owning a Glock other than to see what all the fuss is about. Soooo, I went to my local dealer to get an XDs. Something in me said, 'Try it out first', and luckily they had one to rent. Went through my first mag and was loving in. Controlable snap, good grouping at 10 yds (a bit to the left though), and it had great weight. Then------ FTF. Try to eject and spent 5 minutes trying to rack the thing and thought I was gonna need the jaws of life when I finally broke it free. It had struck at least a mm off center of the primer. In addition, it had caved in the round below it still in the mag.
I expect that out of a cheap pistol, not a brand new SA.
Bad juju, so decided to give the old block a try. Impressed instantly. It has the most distinctive feel when racking a round. Can't even describe it. It jusy feels,,,, right. Put aside the XDs, told the guy to wrap up the G30, and here we are.
Still doesn't hold a candle to my XDm 3.8 45ACP. Sorry for you Glockheads out there. But, I do now see why you guys love em so !
