    I have a XD 45 ACP Tactical (5" Barrel)

    I just passed my CCW class and am thinking about getting a Glock 27 for carry. I like how small the grip is and how easily it can be concealed.

    Should I wait and keep the XD as a range gun?

    No, you would not be stupid. Might as well sell the one you won't shoot as often and put the money towards more range time/ammo and practice with your carry gun.
     
  5. I'd trade it in for a Glock.

    When I first got my XD I was all about XD andthought the glock looked like shit and was against it. But now after seeing their compact I am liking it more.

    Yes, I have a XD9SC that a buddy owes me money on so I have it till he pays me back. I've shot it and I like it, but it'snot as small as the glock

    I guess I just don't know if it's smart to get rid of my full sized XD 45 that's in AWESOME condition to get a compact.

    They are about the same price brand new and I could probably get a even trade.

    It's a sellers market right now. Sell the XD, and pick up a G19. That should cover for range and carry.

    Only reason why I'd sell is to get another subcompact.

    you're going from a .45 to a .40, except smaller?

    consider ammo availability and cost.

    consider recoil in a carry weapon.

    is this your only handgun?

    Yes. This would be my only handgun at the time. I'll eventually buy others.

    Why's that?

    I would go with GLOCK.

    I was in the dilema of the Glock 22/xd 40 debate and went with GLOCK XD took the glock idea, as was stated, and added too much to it...

    It's a simple desgin that works great. Practically legendary...but for the love of god skip the RTF that shit sucks on bare hands...
