the XD fits my hand better, and I can't hit shit with a glock, yet I can shoot well with an XD, not as good as my 1911 though.

ask them if they know where they are made, I swear to god I had an attendant tell me the springfield XD was made in the USA, just like their 1911s.

she shut the hell up when I showed her the proof as to otherwise.

Why else? Springfield is making ass loads of money on these things.

They're VERY popular in IDPA and IPSC.

The HS2000 used to go for $299. Now they're up there in price with their main competition (Glock).

ETA: The XDs are made in Croatia - all of them. Also - Springfield's 1911 frames (which enter the country as forgings) are made by IMBEL in Brazil.

I haven't had any personal experience with them but I have heard good things about them from those who have used them. I looked at one briefly at a gun show Saturday and to me it seemed really thick and chunky. I would like to shoot one just to see how it felt. Right now I am partial to Glocks. Yes I said it, I like Glocks.

I was never happy with my XD, didnt care for sites and other features, sold it awhile back.
