Actually, my EDC is a DW 1911. It is reliable, shootable, thin and best of all...45 Auto!
When I went XD shopping the first time, I was really 40 S&W shopping. Glock 23 had issues, my PT101 was sub std and I really wanted something striker fired. I was close to buying a Glock, but the kaboom and no safeties blew me away. XD was a good choice, had good sights and I shot it well.
Then last year, I wanted to turn my 12 +1 into a 13 or more +1 45acp that was similar in controls to a 1911. Between the XD45 TS and STI 2011, it was close, but the XD was available configured with a rail, tough black finish, thumb safety, etc and the STI was not. So, I went back to my ol friend the XD. I love it. It is soooo easy to hit with! I got the 5" tactical XD45 with thumb safety. It is proving to be a great HD gun.
Bye bye Glock 21!
