Night and day.
« on: August 12, 2017, 04:44:38 PM »

I compared the feel of a Glock 29 and a Springfield-Armory XD Mod 2 today.  Night and day!  The XD feels so much better in my hand!!! 

God, if Croatia only makes a 10mm I can die a happy camper.

Does that campground have a pistol range and how would you enjoy shooting that 10mm if you are dead?

Well if you are right I hope they change their plastic.  I LOVE the feel of my XDS, and I LOVE the feel of the XD Mod 2 I fondled today.  I compared it with my G29 for a while (yes, I had permission to unholster my G29).  It was like night and day.  I don't think I'm ever going to like Glocks unfortunately.

For days I have been fighting the temptation to buy an XDM Compact in .45acp  (I'm not a 9mm type of girl), but it holds 1 less rounds than the G29 and it isn't a 10mm).  Gotta resist the temptation..............

Problem is
1- mags.... 10mm to long to feed correctly
2- frame material may not support 10.m
3- recoil assembly won't work

Grumpy, grumpy, grumpy.  Maybe the Texas heat and humidity doesn't agree with you.  Find an ignore button and have a beer.

Ok, I know you hate Glocks, they're ugly, etc... but maybe you have enough "like" for the G29 platform but prefer a different grip angle, or less front strap, etc...

Have you given any thought to having some work done by Robar or similar?  Maybe they could get your G29 to be more XD Mod 2 feeling for you?

I like the "foundation" of the G29 gen 4 enough that I'll eventually have the fit made closer to perfect for me.  Meanwhile, I have to say... fundamentally, it's a pretty amazing package right out of the box.
