    The winner is.........XD-9!:D I think it speaks volumes about the XD series that it beat out a $940 HK P-30, of course this is full list price. The XD-9 list's at $543. The XD series keeps on kickin' a**.:D

    People on this forum don't seem to like when us XD lovers point out how great they are. They are angry and jealous.:neener:
    P.S., no good guns come from Croatia!

    I really love both of my XD9s, but I'm waiting for the Glock retort... ;)

    Well, that XD only won because there was no Glock included in the comparison test!

    Stay calm, everyone! The above statement was an attempt at sarcasm, and should be used for entertainment purposes only.

    Guntests takes cost into account don't they? IIRC they rated a High Point as a best buy.

    They don't seem to want to compare the XD and Glock.

    From the sample article here, http://www.gun-tests.com/firearms/glock-22-defense-pistols.html :
    I guess the XD doesn't fit the $600 to $800 category.

    bah, there was no need to compare the glock to the xd. It's poor trigger and grip angle ruled out the need to compare it to such finer guns as the XD, HK or ruger.

    They need to compare the XD to the steyr M-A1 series.

    *Don's the flame suit*.......The Glock can't hold a candle to the XD. No need to compare.:neener::D:p

    All I know is that I love my XD, and I, personally, do not shot as well with a Glock.

    Nothing wrong with the XD, if that's what floats your boat. Certainly nothing wrong with the glock...

    Owner's however...answer me this;

    Why is it so important to you to "prove" that yours is better?

    Says a lot more about the owner than the gun, doesn't it?

    Very good point Thumper.

    I myself like Glocks the best out of all the polymer framed pistols, but I have absolutely nothing against any of the others. Just buy whatever you like and whatever works best for you. I don't think you can really go wrong with any of them.

    Thumper hit the nail on the head. I like both Glocks, and XDs. I plan on buying a XD9 subcompact next. It will join my happy family of Glocks. Same with the H&K and all other brands. I'll take at least one of each, thank you very much!

    and glock the new and improved H&k in its day, if we didn't take wapons and make them better over time we would sill be shooting muskets.

    They need to test a P-01 alongside those guns.

    Might come to the conclusion. All the performance, half the cost!

    I prefer Glocks over XDs. They are equally reliable and accurate, though I feel the construction quality (as far as materials go) is much better on the Glock.

    That being said, I think my new SR9 is just as good as either of them! I love it!

    Comparing my new XD-9 Sub Compact to my Glock 19, the G19 has the XD beat, totally. Not that I think the XD is a bad gun... I don't! I like the XD. But the G19 is much more accurate (granted, it has a 1" longer barrle/slide and I installed a 3.5# connector and a smooth-faced trigger shoe, giving the gun a nice 4.75# trigger and a nice, short, quick-reset trigger pull), has a noticibly lower bore-axis, and is more enjoyable to shoot. I am able to be much more precise in shot placement with my G19 over my XD-9 SC. Overall, my XD-9 SC shot about an inch high, compared to my G19, at about 20' range. While I really do like my XD-9 SC, I would choose the G19 over it anyday, in a heartbeat.
