I have an XD9 Tactical with a 5" barrel. It's wonderfully ergonomic, and having owned it for a while, I absolutely appreciate the grip safety, loaded chamber indicator, and cocked indicator.
Much more comforable in my hands than a glock, and I definitely prefer the sighting system.
I have 5 magazines and all are flawless. (ordered mine during the magazine promo last year.) I've got about 500 rounds thru the gun, with zero malfunctions right out of the box. It's eaten every type of ammo I've thrown at it.
I love that I'm going to be able to install a weapon light when I have the chance, and definitely like that I can choose any light I wish. (some guns can only take certain lights on their rail. Sig, maybe?)
My wife considers the XD to be very comforable too. She's an excellent shooter with it.
