    I can't vote in that poll with a good conscience.

    If this were to be my first .45, I'd go with the Springfield XD Tactical .45. If you didn't want the Tactical, then I'd get the 21SF.

      I agree jwise. I do have a Colt 1911, so it is not my first .45. But with that said, I am just wanting one for a little bit more everyday carry, or leaving in the car for trips. It might not be the right attitude, but I don't want to allow my 1911 to get beaten up. To me, the Glock is kind of like the AK where the Colt is like the AR. I have just heard a lot of good things about the XD and was wondering if I should try one of those in place of a glock.

        I have the G21SF, I also have a Kimber Ultra Carry, the Kimber is a lot of fun to shoot and it is a tack driver; the Glock is what I carry on duty...






        and yes I practice with both, and so far I haven't had any trouble transitioning from one to the other...

          G21, because I am biased.

          I haven't seen anything wrong with the XD although I feel the trigger reset is too long on the models I have played with as well as my wife's XD9C.

            of the two i would pick the glock but like blackdog am biased... but your choice must be based on personal experiance with both, go try and shoot both and make your decision for that.

              If those are my only choices, I would pick the XD. My wife has one, and it handles well for a poly gun. I haven't seen any issues with it. But I am biased as well.


              I cant stand the Glock grip angle, and would rather carry a High Point than a Glock. At least I could use the High Point as an impact weapon if I ran out of ammo.

                Out of those two Id go with the Glock. Had a XD and wasn't impressed. Then again when it comes to .45 I am biased I love my Kimber TLE and can't really think of trading up. But the day has come for me to join the 21st and Im looking at the Glock 21SF or HK USP .45 Tactical.

                  If I was going to carry a .45 on duty, it would be an M&P fullsize.
                  Between the 2 poll options, I'd pick the 21SF, hands down.

                  XD? High bore axis + unnecessary grip safety that locks up the slide if not fully depressed + mushy trigger + lack of armorer support = fail.
                  Did I fire six shots, or only five?

                    I prefer the 21SF over the XD.

                          I carried a Glock 21 for nearly 12 years, I swore by it, until I got an XD .45 a year ago. The XD does have a slightly longer reset than the glock, but with some time on the trigger I have got myself dialed in. My only complaint is that the finish is not as rugged as my Glocks. After a year its a more banged up than a dozen on my 21. But I dont care if its pretty or not.

                            Thanks for everyone's opinions. I never noticed the Glock's grip angle until I bought a 1911. Now, I'm not so sure which one I like the best. I just wanted to see what other opinions on the streets were. Thanks again.

                              I like my XD 45's so much I carry 2 of them.
                              You will not be wrong if you carried a G21 either as long as you have orangutan hands.
