[Glock Model #23] I just read way too many bad things about the XD over on the HS2000 / XD forums and couldn't bring myself to sink money into a weapon that was prone to rusting or jamming. Both of those seem like common problems with the XD from what I have read over there. I already have a Glock 27, but I am selling it to a friend -- so the Glock 23 is really a "wash" and I am going to buy something ELSE this weekend as well; perhaps another H&K USP40. I have kicked myself for selling my last USP40 and swore that one day I would own another. This may be that day. Anyway, the 23 was a nice alternative to the XD. Basically the same size and it fits most of my existing holsters.
