    The best thing about an XD is that the holsters for an XD fit my Ruger P345.

    With all of the negative things said about Glock pistols, I can tell you that I have never had a failure with any of mine. This would include the use of reloads.

    Any pistol can fail if it's not maintained. Even Sigs. So far, my Sig P229 has been flawless. Enough rounds through it to have polished all the finish off the outside of the barrel. Best estimate is many thousands of rounds based on the two case of bullets (3750/ea) I go through each year.
