I like the XD series for their cocked status indicator, and very good round chambered indicator (don't know the technical terms). I LOVE the Glock for the simple fact that you pull it, point it at your target, and commence to squeezing the trigger, no muss, no fuss. You can use the Glock 27 as is for EDC, you can put a mag extension on it for under 10 bucks, you can buy a nifty +1 mag with pinky groove, you can use 23 and 22 mags in it, you can shoot it with a longer barrel, and all of these things are very affordable. My vote always goes to Glock for an all around pistol. I like the 27 because it is versatile. All you have to do is buy a couple of extra things. I was carrying my G23C...now am EDC G27. It is a wonderful carry piece. I highly recommend it.
Thanx im trying to decide. i love the xd and its feel in my hands, which so does the m&p. the glock feels a little too big in my palm. with the m&p im worried it has possible relations to the sigma having a lot of problems,so i've heard. so im just in a blank. which me being shot and less than 180 lbs makes a carry solution a lot harder
I would suggest that you go to the range and rent them all and shoot them (unless this isn't an option in your area). I forgot to mention that personally I like the trigger pull of the Glock better than the S&W and the XD.
I fired my buddy's glock 45 service and it was very accurate at 25 yards and have fired my coworkers taurus mill pro 111 after 300 rounds i my palm started to ache and cramp from it just not being comfortable. the good thing is me working on the road. so i have more chances to find a range
We're talking about CCW here, not a shoot all day at the range kind of gun. In my opinion, the Glock 27 is the best choice and the one I went with. Scuba mentioned the loaded chamber indicator on the XD but the modern Glocks also have those now as well. My G27 conceals very well, is deadly accurate, has a good balance and has not had a failure in its 750+ rounds so far. Your choices obviously fall into a good selection of quality. Just shoot them as much as possible before making your decision unless you move things along with the correct decision and get the Glock. :image035:
XDsc-40 for me due to the grip angle, grip safety for re-holstering (keep ur hand off the grip safety when re-holstering), field striping the gun is easyer than the Glock, and for me I shoot the XD's better.
