In a low light handgun class I took last weekend, there were 6 Glocks, 2 XDs and 2 M&Ps. The XDs were the only guns to have issues and not run 100%. Same thing in the class I took before that, but different shooters then. I think a good part of the reason is that the XD has taken over the Glock as the "first gun" recommendation in the last few years I think. You can't ask someone what gun to get without someone saying XD. Many of these shooters aren't as experienced and therefore will tend to have more issues with their guns. YMMV.
There is another one out there by the same guy dealing with Hi Points and its a real hoot. I have seen it but cannot find it agian, its even funnier than this one. I will keep looking and post if I find it.
Funny stuff. My favorite quotes: "You couldn't get a clue if it were clue mating season and you were standing in a field of clues, smeared clue must on yourself and did the clue mating dance" " I hope you die in a fire":haha::rofl:
Personally it's a matter of one's choice---I bought the XD9 and have never experienced an "issue" save the first time I used the new mags.It has never given feed nor ejection problems, my only problem is the strength of the recoil spring makes it tougher for me to handle the slide. But that's my issue and not the gun. I was attracted to the Glocks with their years of experience and testing, the XD however is IMHO complete with all the safety features found on a 1911---standard slide safety, grip safety, interlock safety and trigger safety---not available on the Glock as far as I know.If you try to holster with your finger on the trigger regardless of the gun, you will shoot yourself in the leg or foot or both. :drillsergeant: "Doc"
