So it looks like I may be purchasing one of the above in the next few weeks. I have read all of the comparisons I could find (a few dozen) and I'm still curious about what WMD thinks about XD reliability. I'm selling a Taurus PT145 in the process, btw. I have shot the XD45 and I friggin love it, but I'm going for the 9 for more mag capacity as well as affordability. I just can't shoot the .45 as often as I'd like. Basically, I have read about how there are no SA techs that can service their XD line, and you have to send the entire thing in to fix a problem. That freaks me out as it will be my CCW. I have not shot the 19 yet, but I shot the full size model(17 I think) and I couldn't shoot it worth sh**. I couldn't figure out where the sights were pointing and point shooting didn't work as I wasn't used to the grip angle. I know I likely just need more time with it, only shot ~30 rds before going back to the XD. Basically: convince me one way or the other. Please! I am planning on the XD at the moment and I love having the grip safety, but I'm not 100%. I like what I hear/know about the reliability of the Glock, too. Can't decide!
