First off: this is a want, not a need. Second: I've own both the G21 and G30, and currently own an XD45 SERVICE as my duty weapon. The reason my Duty weapon is not a G30 is because the one I had on order didn't get here in time for me to leave for the academy. So I took a firearm I'd heard good things about with me down to an environment where I'd be under a lot of emotional stress! In the five days we had to master our weapons, I qualified with it no problem If I'd had a G30 I'd have been more relaxed as I've sent thousands of rounds through a few. Third: Wile at the academy, I met some guys with XD45 TACTICALS, and these guys ere shooting lights out good! They showed me that they could conceal there weapons as directed by our divisions directive. Having owned a G21 in the past and having qualified chl with one before it got me to doing a little thinking about what I should do next. Fourth: I stand to have a rather large and obscene amount of money Friday. I must feed my addiction! But with which? I saw a first gen Glock 21 that I think I can get for about $500 bucks, and I already have glock magazines and tools to fit it. I can get a XD45 tactical for about $495, and I have extra mags and tools for it. Currently both these weapons would be for off duty use and I found that because I favor baggy cloths as I am a big guy, I could carry either weapon concealed. I like both and have shoot both. I came to this forum because itâ€™s not Glock, and itâ€™s not XD. Sometimes one needs the help of his peers to decide an issue.
