Thread: New 9mm....Glock or Springfield Xd??

  1. #11
    I have an XD 40 service. My wife has an XD9 subcompact. We are really fond of both of them. The Glocks do not fit my hand well, so I prefer the XD. Just me though. My ultimate 9mm is my new Sig P250. Shoots great and fits my hand really well. I don't know if you could find one, my gun store told me they tried to replace the one I bought and could not get another one now. It does cost a little more, but not bad for a Sig. MSRP is $699. I of course, think the XD or Glock would make you smile :D

    I am jealous of you and that Sig. I know what the Bible says about coveting so I will have to be careful but I do think that would be a great addition to my collection.

    LOL. Sorry HK I didn't mean to point out how wonderful my Sig is and how you probably won't be able to find one now and how it's because of you bringing it up that I bought one. I didn't mean to make you jealous.

    That's o.k. I am sure that by the time I can fit into my budget there will be more available.

  6. Thanks guys! Great input. I think I'm leaning towards a Glock. Everyone I know that has one, loves it and goes on and on about it. I think I'll rent it at the range and see how I like it.

  7. Another thought if I may?

    You could purchase a Glock model 33 in .357 Sig caliber. I did.

    Then you can purchase a 9mm barrel & a couple clips and you have a 9mm. The model 33 will also handle the barrel for a 40 S&W. I did not buy one because I own a model 27 Glock in 40 S&W.

    I enjoy shooting the .357 but I tell my dad that at the current price of ammo all I can afford is to take the shells out of the box, clean them & put them back in the safe! haha.

    Not sure which other models support this option, but there may be several.

    Bond Arms Snake Slayer
    Glock 27, 30, 31, 33

  8. Anyone have a S&W sigma? Any thoughts on that particular gun?

    Oh I should add, it will be mostly for taking to the range and not necessarily CCW. Thanks!
    I am also looking at Glocks though in 40 cal the Glock 27. One thing I learned is that Glock will give you a 100$ discount if you are LEO or Military I have even heard them giving this discount to retired military and LEO's.

    I have not been able to confirm this yet but it makes the decision easier for me. I have read too many stories about how ULTRA reliable they are and super accurate to boot.

    I won't say my mind is made up but I am going to shoot a Glock and a XD and a S&W MP 40 compact and compare them all.

    Super reliability and accuracy are HUGE things to me. Plus I am a tight wad so if I can get 100$ off you know it is going to be damn hard to beat a Glock.

    I have two G19's and one XD 45acp.

    IMHO the XD is a better gun. But I agree with the majority of posters that state to shoot both and decide what is best for you.

    They are both great guns! If you get a Glock go with the Gen4 totally worth it and the Springfield XDm is awesome, my choice. I can't wait to get me a XDm compact that just came out!
    Go to a shop or even better a range and at least handle them both and then make your decision. If you can shoot them at a rental range even better. I would get whichever you are more comfortable with.
