I prefer my Springfield XD compact to the Glock as a concealed carry piece. The grip safety makes me feel more comfortable going out in public "cocked and locked" while carrying concealed.
XD OWNER TO A GLOCK OWNER "MAN THAT THING IS SHITTY, KEEPS JAMMING AND YOU WILL SHOOT TOUR EYE OUT," GLOCK OWNER TO XD OWNER "YEAH MY FUCKHEAD ASS SHOULD HAVE WENT XD, THAT IS THAT WAY TO BE!!!
The Springfield XD, called "glock wannabes" by pissed of Glock owners who realized they bought an inferior gun, has improved upon the many design flaws of Glock pistols. The fully-supported chamber of the XD will prevent the possibility of the famous Glock "kaboom" in which bullets explode in the chamber, destroying the Glock and leaving the shooters hand mangled (youtube "glock kaboom"). Also, the internal and external safeties of the XD, will prevent the well known phenomenon of "Glock Leg" where the gun mysteriously discharges a bullet into the owners leg (youtube "glock leg"), also known a plaxico leg.
In reality the Springfield XD is a better shooting, more accurate, far more safe, version of the glock, that also looks twice a nice as the old-fashioned Block design. I personally have 20,000+ rounds through my XD with ZERO jams or malfunctions. Wish I could say that for my old Glock!!
"He must have been shooting a Glock, thats not possible with a Springfield XD!!"
2. A cheap, Glock-wannabe pistol.
3. Inferior to a Glock pistol.
Wow, my XD really IS a cheap ripoff of a Glock!
