So I rented a Glock 26 and a Kahr subcompact 9mm something or other. I was not too impressed with the Kahr but I did like fact that it was a single stack. I liked the Glock a lot. I am probably going to look at getting into one of them now. I asked one of the guys about the xd40 and he told me that they have had issues with the little pin in the back that tells you if its cocked or not firing out backwards into the safety glasses of people shooting them. That is certainly a big no no for me and I am probably not interested in one of these now due to that. Have any of you guys heard about this or was this guy full of shit?

Anyone else heard of this happening?

I own an XD45 for over a year now, I have had ZERO issues with it so far.

i would not buy a M&P just based on what a pain in the ass it is to remove the slide.

I have heard a few reports of the indicator sticking up even when the chamber was empty, but that could be due to improper cleaning of the gun. The situation you decribe sounds more like a Glock whore trying to sway you away from the XD.

I've owned two Springfield XD's and I've never had this happen. I don't shoot in competitions but I do shoot more than most people probably do. Still no problems.

I was a little suspicious of this as the guy I was speaking to had a Glock T-shirt on. I did not get to hsoot the XD yet but still want to try one. I was impressed with the Glock.

The Glock is a great weapon. The only thing that's kept me from buying them is their grip angle. That and their .45ACP's have a grip that's too fat for my tastes. The XD .45ACP is much easier to hold. The XD offers all the reliability and durability of a Glock but it has a grip angle similar to that of the 1911. So XD's have always been more comfortable for me to hold.

I just bought another XD .45ACP today. So now I have two of those and I had a .40S&W that I sold awhile back. Eventually I may buy another, but I'm really liking the .45ACP models.

I got to shoot some 9mm and some .40s at a range in Everett last week.

I was really impressed with the S&W M&P series, and the XD series.

Issue is, Im a lefty. And dropping the slide on any right handed gun is laborious (Getting the index finger to push the slide release down isn't the easiest). Not a task I'm going to need to do very often, but annoying nonetheless.

And the S&Ws are ambidextrous, which is nice. Anyone own any of those and have any thoughts?

Also, what are people's opinions about size and weight?

I've been thinking of carrying with a rear holster, any thoughts on that compared to the more common hip style?

I am now the proud owner of a brand new XD-40 Subcompact. I rented one and again rented the Glock 26 and 27 and fell in love with the Springfeild. Fantastic.
