DudeNumberOnePlus: Glock costs 75 bucks to make. Just so you know.
kaygeeboi: I stopped the video once i saw this homosexual with a pierced tongue.
Derek Honky: Oh, the irony: a video with a misleading name, about a product that "sucks"
because it's manufacturer has a misleading name.
George Hill: The HS 2000 was no joke. It was popular and well liked, but mostly
unsupported. When Springfield took over importation, they did raise the
price - but also gave it an unconditional lifetime warranty from a company
who's probably the best when it comes to Customer Service with Warranty
Issues. I had 1 problem with a Springfield - and Springfield bent over
backwards to make sure I was happy. THAT is worth an extra 200 bucks on
the price tag. It just is. If you want to complain about over priced guns
- Take a look at HK. They are way over priced and the customer service is
cz luver: I thought only girls and dudettes got their tongues pierced to make sucking
c0ck better for the blowee.
Pencil Jockey: Glock was a joke at one point right? So they don't suck and they work
Romeo Guishard Jr: I thought they were ugly and top heavy,....until I shot one. Shoots great
in my opinion.
Jerry Spriinger: If Hillary Clinton freaked herself with a glock, got pregnant, had an
abortion that lived, it would be the XD.
Brian Mumford: Are XD's overpriced, or were they under priced when they were initially
marketed by a relatively unknown company (HS Produkt)? Glock used to be
considered a joke too. A polymer frame??? You say it's a "good" firearm,
but "let's be honest, it's not a $600-$650 gun, it never was, it never will
be." What evidence do you have that they're worth less than anything else
in that range? Shoddy materials? Shoddy workmanship? I've only heard good
things about their production in general. Yes, they had a recall, yes, it
was a potentially serious defect, but they fixed that. It's a gun, many
defects are dangerous. All guns fail from time to time, but if the XDS
proves reliable going forward, what would you point to to support your
statement? Is the trigger not good? Is the gun not inherently accurate
enough? Does it smell? ;) BTW, I do not own an XD or a Springfield product.
I shoot Glock and S&W, but I'm not opposed to owning an XD.
END6987: thanks for the history lesson that everyone knows already. maybe in the
video you should had said why you dislike it. i dont know where you saw
this guns forsale but my xdm was only $50 more then a glock and $70 more
then the m&p. why did i pay more for it i liked the features and feel. I
really wanted to get a m&p but something about it trigger guard bugged me
when shooting and holding the gun. xdm 3.8 and xdm 5.25 comp and now
looking to get a xds.
abntemplar82: ok so why should i put any stock in your opinion? just because someone
bought the name Springfield armory and imports guns form Croatia? you didnt
mention anything about the function, reliability, accuracy, or durability
of the XD. all you did say is a bunch of fluff about the company and your
opinion of what the people of the us said about Croatian built guns. so i
ask again why should i care about your opinion? are you some sort of gun
guru or former delta force what is your background and experience with
combat pistols. tell me why i should listen to you.
getbo: Despite perceptions - the XD has proved itself to be durable and accurate.
I prefer gen 4 Glock with it's lower bore axis, but XD fits my hand better
than the Gen 3 Glock.
If you have an XD, no need to panic - you have an excellent gun.
Gregg Hansen: This video is retarded. You should re title this video I hate Springfield
because you gave more reason for that then about the XD. The XD is a
superior gun to the Glock in every way. Its built better and tougher. The
XD is easily one of the top if not the top polymer gun that is out right
W K Rhynes: Thanks, but I don't take firearm advice from Juggalos.
Scott Burton: I bet the XD is not the only thing in this video that "sucks".
teamsilva100: I have own a Ruger P Series and currently own a XD and a XDM and there is
no comparison. I would respect your option if you did a side by side
comparison of the two guns. Even throw in a Glock. At this point your
video is just an option, not any shooting facts. I get the "politics" of
the name and the supplier but just can respect the lack of facts of the gun
your bashing. Stay Gold Pony Boy...
howard shoul: i am currently looking to buy a 9mm, yesterday went to my local shop and
got to feel each of the glock 9mm the xdm 4.5" 9mm and also the s&w m&p 9mm
i liked therm all honestly. i like the simplicity of the glock. the
reliability. but so many people i know have the xdm and they absolutly love
it. they say its the most accuate out of the box 9 you will find. but i
wanted to say thank you for your honest opinion and the mini history
lesson. i truely appreciate you taking your time and making this video. i
will come back and let you know what i buy. thanks again.
Zak Felkel: okay, so it works good and doesn't really have any problems but yet its not
worth the money while glock sells polymer guns that also work. Not to
mention that M&Ps to me are crap because if I remember correctly had a lot
of problems at one point in time and now have taken some of the same
features of glock. For me a good working gun (XDs, Glocks, and I guess
some M&Ps) are worth the money but it depends on what you like in the feel
and conformability of the gun itself so quit trying to down companies who
clearly are right there with glock which to me I hate the feel of because
its like holding a bent knife to shoot...that being said doesn't mean that
glock is not a good gun, but just not something Id want regardless of its
reliability. If I cant hit what im aiming at it aint worth a damn.
crozek: Besides the price point, in your opinion, what makes them lower quality?
Scott Davie: My XDM 45 is one of the most accurate and reliable pistols I have shot?
Keeps my 22 in the safe even with 23 rnd clip. Did the Croatian you got
your tongue pierced for break your heart? Hater
dan silva: I own one. I'm still going to buy an xdm simply due to I like the look. I
think it very tactile looking and mean looking. I still enjoyed knowing the
history and listening to what you had to say, good job and thankyou
celticsurfer24: Your absolutely right on the info about springfield however Croatia is
right next door to Austria pretty much, they make good guns and the same
guns they make and ship over here is what their military carries so if it
was a piece of crap they would not have it, I do not own XDs but I do own
XDMs and the XDS, they work great and I like them,
Steve Woods: Sold my glock, bought the xd. Most accurate gun I've ever owned. Your rant
Rob Urban: If Springfield guns holds up like everyone tells me they do, then maybe
they'll build a legitimate brand over time. The double safety sells itself.
I have no use for fumbling in the dark guessing whether the safety is off.
William Tripp: I don't know where u are getting your prices from but I bought my XD 40 new
for 450.00. I have shot Glocks and don't really care for them. I hit much
better with my XD. it's been a great gun.
baldbollocks: I'm an XD owner. Love this video. agree 100/%. Happy with the gun but yes
its on the same par as Ruger 9mm. I bought it as the Gen 2 glocks at the
time didn't feel at all good in my hand. So today there are way better buys
for a 9mm plastic pistol
1911s4me: The XD doesn't suck neither did the HS2000, I think you're just upset with
how Springfield up'd the price is all. When Springfield took over different
barrel lengths, calibers and frame designs came about-plus they have a
lifetime warranty at Springfield...that money comes from somewhere. PS
Handgun of the year 2006 was the XD .45 acp American Rifleman magazine and
The Shooting Industry Academy. The XD (M) won Handgun of the year in 2009!
Hello, do you still think you know something about XD's? These guns are
being carried by LEO's and Croation military to this day. The marriage of
Glock, Sig and 1911-what's not to like?
Dino Hrubenja: I think that his opinion is such because it is not a gun made in America
than in Croatia, obviously that gun is not good enough for him!!!
Drewdownkali: I have never liked glocks.
mereno see: Actually I have shot many XDs and HS2000 no major difference owned a couple
of XDs and they shoot great but not my ideal pistol I will have to agree
with you its not a 600$ gun at all. Great vid!
Brett Teague: But whats wrong with the gun? I've heard a lot of good things about
sigmaoverglocks: It sounds like you don't like xd because of the owner and the type of gun
he use to make.
Dean Carder: Hmm. Where do you find XD's for 6-700 dollars? Here in western MO.they are
about the price of an equivalent Glock. I picked up an XD 45 Tactical with
4 mags for 5 bills. Glock, poly frame, XD, poly frame, Glock, works every
time, XD, works every time. XD, best support and warranty in America.
Jeff Taylor: Love the xd and own a few....and didn't get offended lol. Everyone has the
right to their opinion. That said, they are overpriced for what they are.
The finish (melonite) doesn't hold a candle to tenefer as seen with
glocks...which by the way, is my biggest complaint.
Paul S: I did A LOT of research before I bought my XDS45, and I BOUGHT one, so I
guess I believed the dozens of other reviewers that said they were
excellent. Some people just seem to get a burr under their saddle from time
to time. Usually, only reason one gun costs more than another is just the
name. You can add 30-50% to a gun's price because it's a S&W, Glock, Kehr,
Mike Warren: I didnt really pay attention
fullpull83: the funny part is if he shot a xd and a glock back to back he would thinkd
the xd is a better built gun i qwn bot glock and xd both great guns and
neither are worth the price tag they command
jfishld: Springfield 1911s? AKA imbel imports
superlucky28: guns, prepping,politics, ZOMBIES...ok, I'll take your opinion seriously...
john doe: First of all, I think the XDm Compact with the Bi-Tone finish was way more
attractive than the Glock 30. Looks aside, I choose the XDm because the
slide release was MUCH easier to activate and the XDm Compact was slimmer.
Both will hold 13 plus 1 round. I actually like the grip safety. I shot
the XDm before I bought it and found that it shot great, it was easy to get
to the magazine release the trigger was great and it felt good in my
hands. Not many make a compact handgun that will hold 13 rounds except for
Glock....and I told you why I think the Glock comes up short. Your video
seems to reveal a bias against the company rather than the product.
Tony Melendez: Most terrible and nonfactual(other then history lesson) video EVER lol!
Springfield xd has life time warranty and also come with METAL CAPTIVE
GUIDE SPRING RODS and or non-captive guide spring rods the finish on gun
amazing. you pay the same price for a glock as you mentioned you felt was
superior and you get a angled grip and a plastic guide rod and a not so
reliable looking spring. most of these springs/rod are the FIRST thing
glock people replace and those together are over $100 so your glock that
was 550-600 dollars is now 650-700. all in all its a matter of preference
my xd .40 service has over 4000 rounds though it without a hickup.
manessb: A good rule of thumb is to never listen to a guy with a tongue piercing.
However, that being said I own both glock and xdm. Both are great pistols.
Xdm being my favorite. Comparing it to a ruger is almost offensive. That's
equal to comparing a glock to a hi point. Obviously this guy has never
fired a xd or xdm.
JuiceOg1: The XDM .45 is freaking amazing. Who cares who bought what, where the name
origin came from.
Xd's are awesome and I only own the .45 but have shot tons and tons of
Springfield. Not sure if ur a service man but I would use it if deployed
back to the afghan sands.
Don't agree with this video.
But still a fan of ur videos.
christopher tedder: I'm looking to buy a good hand gun for the range and home defense. if it's
true about what he is saying about the xd I want to know what is worth
the money. what hand gun should I be looking for?
Boba Fett: OK, looked at the entire video. Where exactly did you say why XD Sucks as a
gun? If we put asside all of the jibbrish about springfield history, you
never even once mentioned why XD as gun sucks. No mention of its features,
design, materials used, accuracy or lack there of, nothing. Really bad
video dude. You sound more like a 15 yearold who hates his friends bb gun
because its more expensive than yours.
FNX Coppola: I got an xds 45..and dont know what xd stands for but i know now that the s
is for sucks!...I payed 689 bucks ..got recalled ..then the feed ramp has a
gap that hollowpoint rounds hit that gap or the edge of the round where the
bullet meets the casing hangs up...but the thing is its very fun to shoot
at the range ..its precise I always hit the bullseye...it works..the barrel
feed ramp dosent meet with the bottom part 100%...whem the slide is open
the barrel moves up and down and theres the gap between the lower feed ramp
...desine flaw croatian style...
Lance Tuccio: My dad gave me an XD-45LE Tactical with some extra magazines and 3,000
rounds of Lawman ammo. Here is my take on it.
• It chewed up all 3,000 rounds without a hiccup.
• Ambidextrous magazine release that is easy to locate.
• Large slide release is also easy to find and manipulate.
• Nice slide serrations on the front and rear of the slide make it easy
to power stroke and brass check.
• Magazines eject cleanly and with a good bit of force behind them.
• Magazines are easily inserted into the mag well.
• Easily field stripped and cleaned.
• Visual and tactile indicators for a loaded chamber and roostered striker.
• Decent accuracy at 25 yards.
• The grip feels good in my big hands.
• .45 GAP makes as much sense as Feinstein on a meth bender, and is
expensive and hard to find locally—obviously why my dad gave
• Just like an unmodified Glock, the trigger has a lot of pre-travel, is
mushy, and breaks like a stalk of asparagus that's been in the
fridge a bit too long.
• My gun feels a bit top heavy even with a full 10-round magazine.
• The sights (mine does not have night sights) are meh.
• The 5" version is a no-go for concealed carry, in my opinion.
• Mine will forever sit in my safe because I will never buy .45 GAP ammo
or a conversion kit.
So, would I pay money for an XD? Nope. Would I recommend one to my friends
over my Glock or an M&P? Nope. But I think the XD is by no means a joke;
you can definitely do worse. Anyway, to each their own. Be safe out there!
Levi Bruntmyer: I have personally found very FEW guns sold today that are worth the pocket
damage they go for PERIOD
Brad Walters: this video fails
Will Green: Zzzz. I love my XDm 45 compact. Looks good, shoots great, not a single
failure :D Glocks are good if you like ugly guns, fist bumping other glock
owners, cheap upgrades (which is def nice), and trading stories with cops
who've shot themselves in the leg lol.
XDs come from Croatia. Glocks come/came from Austria...
Not a glock hater... Probably will end up with a few eventually once I
finish buying Russian designed stuff lol.
