opinion on glock or springfield

I plan on adding to my pistol collection and have decided to go with glock or SA xd. I already have a 9 and a few. 357 magnums.

I want

9mm
10 mm gonna be a glock
.40 (plan on getting. 357 sig kit too)
.45 acp

I have been looking at the SA Xd, Xd tactical, and Xdm along with glocks.

I want one either the 9 or. 40 to be a subcompact cc.

Which one for cc and which brand. I know there is a love hate relationship on the OB for glocks, 1911's, and kimber's so please refrain from killing each other so to speak.

Thanks.

I held the glock 19 and i really didn't like the way it felt. Ihave held a SA Xdm and liked the feel but whenever i drop $500+ i like to hear peoples experiences and opinions.

On the CC side, I prefer the Springfield. I like the extra safety on the grip. I still carry a Glock for CC on occasion, but 99/100 these days I pick up the SA XDs.

Will Reserve For Springfield.


I have both. Like both. Glock accessorizes for days. Springfield comes with more stuff in the box.

I forgot the xds. Should i go 9mm or. 40 for the subcompact or is there a better option. Mostly will be carried by the wife or in or vehicles when we travel.

I would go 9mm just because of the cost difference and not much difference in ballistics.

I have both and personally prefer the Glock, but you've answered your own question. Whatever you're most comfortable and confident in is the best choice for you. I've found my XD/M to be as reliable as any of my Glocks (which means 100% reliability).

re: opinion on glock or springfield
CC and Car Travel are two different guns in my opinion.

I would get myself the XDs in .45 and get my wife something in 9mm. That XDs is going to be a handful for a woman to shoot. Especially with the small magazine. Pierce extensions or the 7 round extended magazine make that XDs a different pistol.

The width is going to be the issue with CC, that is why everyone likes the single stacks. A car/travel pistol is a completely different set of criteria.

My ole lady has shot a few mags through my XDs with no problems. Does she like it? No. But she is proficient enough to point and shoot it, accurately. My cousins wife has shot it too with no problems.

The XDs is fine for womens but I like the M&p 9c better for them.

I think the XD is the most over rated over priced polymer gun on the market... Glock or M&P for me

I have the XDm 4.5 in .40 and the XDs. .40 is my favorite but not for cc. XDs for cc.

Glock wasn't for me. Springfield felt better in my hand.

The Springfield XD subcompact is only like 1/4" wider than the xds. Does that 1/4" make a lot of difference when CC?

If it's for a "collection" that doesn't matter. If it's about collecting rather than shooting, I'd get a 1911. Simple reason, the glocks ain't purty. Not bashing them, I have a G19 I love.
