Glock PI1950203 G19 Standard 9mm 4.02″ 15+1 w/FS Polymer Grip Matte Black

The Glock 19 is ideal for versatile use through reduced dimensions compared
with the standard pistol size. With the proven caliber of 9×19, it has
found worldwide distribution in security services. In addition to being
used as a conventional service weapon, it is suitable for concealed carry
or as a backup weapon.

The 4 inch XD combines safety with quality and ease of use. With the Ultra Safety Assurance (U.S.A.) action trigger system, this polymer framed pistol is as comfortable as it is safe. The V-10 XD pistol is the ultimate in ported polymer pistols. Every XD now comes with the XD Gear System which includes the new patent pending XD gear belt holster, double magazine pouch, magazine loader, two magazines and cable lock.

The first thing that stands out for me is the weight, the Glock 19 is a cool 7 oz’s lighter than the Springfield XD. That’s nearly a 1/2 lb heavier. Weight can be an issue especially if your law enforcement or security were you have the firearm on your side all the time.  In my mind weight can be offset by features, the Springfield XD has better sites, safety (Grip & Trigger), capacity, and lets not forget the XD comes with XD gear belt holster, double magazine pouch, magazine loader, two magazines and cable lock.  I have personally owned both and qualified with the XD for my concealed carry license. For me the XD has a better look and feel than the 19, with that said I do have large hands so the shape of the grip on the XD just fits me better. Punching paper is a wash between the two, I have done well with both on target. My vote is XD. Let me know what you think.
