Alright, I'm trying to get rid of my Taurus 9mm for a .45. Right now I'm torn between Springfield and Glock. I have about a $600 budget. I went and held both of these guns and I didn't have a problem with either. I need some pros and cons for both. As added info I'm eligible for the blue label program on the Glocks.
What do, /k/?
XD has a grip safety that is pointless and will get you killed. Blue label pricing on the Glock means you can get it, some Trijicon HDs, and an Apex extractor and still come in under budget.
Don't believe cucks who tell you a grip safety will kill you. I have an XDs .45 with thousands of rounds through it and zero times have I pulled the trigger on a full chamber and not heard a bang
Is there a problem with the casings being extracted from the Glock? I never read about it.
If it helps, my only experience with pistols are my service weapon (M&P), the Taurus I'm trying to get rid of, and a Hi-Point .45 I got rid of. I was recommended Glock or Springfield by a former milfag I work with.
The extractor on current production Glock pistols is bad and can sometimes chuck brass straight back into the shooter's face. The Apex unit is better-designed and resolves this problem in most cases. Many Glock pistol users install it as a preventative measure.
