I have and shoot a lot of different hand guns, I have a gen 4 Glock 19 it shoots very well it’s going to be basically the same thing as your xd just in a different package, I’m not going to say it’s any better or worse, if you want something compact but in that size range the new g48 is a single stack version of the 19 I just got one and it’s pretty nice for a large size concealable gun, also cheaper than a g19, if you can swing it pick up the Glock and keep the xd and sell whatever one you don’t like or keep both that’s normally how I roll lol
I don't have a G19 but I do have a 5" XD .45 and an SD9VE which is basically the same size. I bet you'll love carrying the Glock a lot better I like my XD but it's a tank. You must be pretty hard core if you're concealing it and not open carrying it.
I own one. Does what a Glock should. I probably haven't put a round through it in over a year, it's not a gun I take to the range jonesing to shoot. Pretty much have it as a "shit might get hairy" carry gun if I want more than the 8rds my shield holds.
Gen 4 G19 with Ghost 3.5# connector and smooth face trigger out of a G17. It’s what I shoot best of any handgun I’ve shot. Looking at a 43X next. My biggest gripe with Glock is where the grip meets the trigger guard. I got Glock knuckle today in CCW class just handling the G17 dummy gun. I took a dremel sanding and polishing wheel and at home gun smith undercut mine and it’s much better.
