+1, the springfield xd's are nice, but they feel a litte heavy for me, feels like i have a brick in my pants, somthing i dont care to lug around everywhere

Interesting, the .40 cal 4" XD weighs 27 oz. with mag, the G22 weighs 25.67 the same way.
So the XD weighs a whole 1.33 ounces more.

The Subcompact XD 20.5 oz. with mag and the G27 is 21.87 oz. so the XD is actually lighter in the smaller pistol category.

Keep in mind were talking less than an ounce or so.

I'd be more concerned about accuracy, reliability, and how it fits my hand.
One other thing to consider is that the XD has a grip safety, while the Glock has none.

yeah the diffrence is negligible. you said it best, its how it "fits in your hand" the glock feels better balanced to me, as far as the sub compact g27, i had to get the clip pinky extention, i have big hands and it helped my fast fire accuracy quite a bit :icon_bigg

Glock hands down but, I ask why a .40? For a dollar more you can shoot .45ACP, for a few dollars less you can shoot a 9mm per box. G19, G23 for CCW, G17/G22 is OK for some carry but the 19/23 conceals better. If you want, you can get a NIB 1911 platform in most calibers including .38 Super for about the same price as the Glock.

Boatload of accessories for the Glock, internals basically unchanged since introduction, cheap mags, 9mm 33rd mags for $24, lots of drop in match triggers, cheap caliber conversions, etc. I personally have G34/G35 and prefer the 9mm most of the time, and their is a definate weight difference on the .40S&W. (Convert the .40 over to .357SIG with a barrel and maybe a recoil spring, or vice versa.)

if there are no other options, then i would say the glock as well.

save some money and get the xd though. can be very accurate depending on the shooter.

I'll throw another option in here, S&W M&P series.... LOTS of sweet talk about those. Smooth and sweet shooting with a better trigger than the Glock, even though that's not saying much... I guess you can go fondle one to see if it feels right and points good for you, can also try the others too and take the one home that treats you the best.
