I love Glocks and mine have functioned and performed flawlessly for me, but I am intrigued with the XD's. They seem to be basically the same thing as a Glock with only a few nice differences. I haven't had a chance to shoot the XD 9 subcompact but I did like the feel and size. My wife thinks the .40 Glock 23 kicks too much, although she would use it if she needed to. When I work late or am away from home she keeps it close at night just in case. We have a 5 month old baby and she is very protective. I would feel more comfortable if she had a weapon she could train with and one that was on the smaller size for her hands. I like the idea of adding the XD 9 for that reason and it would be a good CCW for either of us in the future. We are sold, just waiting for our tax return!!
My theory on the general public is that they're like mushrooms, they thrive when you feed em $hit and keep em in the dark.
