    I love the XD 40 (9mm).

    That gun just feels great and shoots straight. You don't have to "adjust" your wrist like you do with a Glock.

    It was modeled after the 1911A1.

    Jury is still out on .45 GAP, but it's lasted longer than I thought it would. :) I don't see how it's really much better than .40 S&W. The two things I liked about .45 acp over .40 S&W are gone with .45 GAP: .45 acp is a low-pressure round, which gives it a slower, softer recoil impulse and makes brass last a long time. .45 GAP is higher pressure, more along the lines of .40, so unless the slightly heavier bullet is important to you, I don't see the point except that people like the idea of carrying a ".45" more than other calibers.

    Springfield has a great comparison pic on their site. The XD is on the left. This makes it easier to visualize how those differences measured in hundredths and thousandths can make a difference. The gun on the right is a Glock 21, and they really are pretty big in the hand. That's the size grip in terms of circumference my Glock 30 has, and it hasn't been that comfortable, so you can see why I'm interested in trading up to the XD.
    (Besides, I believe the XD has conventional rifling so I can shoot unjacketed lead or plated bullets. That would be nice; they're cheaper, and for plinking they work just fine.)
