    I like the extra safety on the XD on the back of the grip. Thats a plus for the XD in my eyes anyway.

    Pick whichever fits you the best.

    A friend compared the two next to each other side by side and they're pretty much the same.

    I may be alone but I don't think a grip safety is worth much. Most of the times I've heard about a nd, they've been very intention, usually pulling the trigger for takedown after not clearing it, or something. It wouldn't be a selling point to me.

    If they both felt comfortable, I'd get the glock for the better finish and more available/cheaper mags.

    why do people come in here and ask whether the XD or Glock is better? they're both very reliable guns. shoot both. pick the one that's ergonomics fit you the best and feels the best while shooting.

    Why?? Because we are curious about what people who know more about them than we do think about the guns. Im new to the gun world and just wanted some opinions before I dropped a handful of cash. I dont really like listening to people in the stores cuz they are just wanting to make a sale.

    well as it's been said a million times. the Glock and XD are both very reliable guns. they will both serve you well. they have different ergonomics. the XD fits some people better and the Glock fits others better. the only way to decide which one is for you is to go at least hold them and if at all possible, shoot them both.

    it's cool. i went through the same thing when trying to decide between the XD9 sub-compact and the G26. finally i just went and shot them both and ended up with the XD.

    yeah I am selling my Baby Eagle right now. Im wanting something more compact. My friend has a .40 XD that I have shot but I have not handled a Glock in several years so Im interested to see how it compares.
