Has anyone shot or bought one of the new Springfield XD pistols? My son JD and I are looking at them, I'm thinking of buying me a 45acp and he's looking at the 40.

Any opinions or thoughts on them?

It's a good pistol. The only thing I didn't like was the size of the gap between the frame and the slide. Just a little too wide. I kept getting fuzz and stuff in there. I'm not sure if this has changed with the newer models.

Most people who can't shoot Glocks due to the grip angle prefer the XD.

I have the 40 S&W, absolutely love it. I really only have experience with a Kimber 1911 .45, the Beretta 92, and a Glock. The XD is my favorite, just fits my hand better than a Glock.

I haven't heard anything bad about them, and apparently they shoot quite well.

I have a Ruger P345 stainless. It's a comfortable pistol to shoot and is easy to carry.

My only problem with the XD was how if you do not hold it right, and you break your wrist they have a tendency to not cycle. But also I only shot my friends that he got, and I think he has learned not to do that and is happy with his. Personally I like Sigs.

Of all 3(glocks Sigs and the XD) it was the most accurate. I have never had a jam with it and shot some really really bad ammo out of it. It does not have the safety features of the XD it has no saftey except do not pull the trigger, which is something I like for self defense. And I wanted a double action pistol which is what it is. Those along with it fit my hand the best and I liked it visually the most is why I went with it. I would see which one you liked the best of those 3. If you were closer I would meet you at a range to shoot it. Go try one out that the best thing you can do.

PS if you like sigs, PM Model70Man he owns a few and knows more about them than me. As do most people on this forum actually..
