Default Compact/Sub-compact .40 owners

I am looking to purchase a .40 in the next week or two and have been doing some research on all my options. And theres a bunch of options. I like the Glock but wasnt looking to spend over $500.00. The Taurus Pro Millenium from what I hear has got alot of positive feedback except for the resale value. It probably the cheapest I have looked at around $379.00 most places. But the one that has really caught my eye is the Springfield XD40. Have not shot any of the above mentioned but from reading about all the options and the XD40 seems to be a pretty popular gun. What yalls experience with the above mentions pistols or do you have any more suggestions.

i have an XD40 and love it. shoots awesome, very managable in terms of recoil, it's tough, easy to break down and clean.

I have a G27 and the taurus 24/7 Pro The taurus handles great and feels better to carry to me. That is just personal opinion. I beleve the glock is a better firearm and that is why I love my G30 best of all

I STARTED WITH AN XDSC40, love it, but I'm a bigger fan of 45acp, so i sold my xd 45acp tactical and bought a xd compact 45acp, wish they would bring out a xdsc45acp.

all i have had had been excellent.

never owned a glock but have fired 5 rounds from one, seems good, didn't notice any thing magical about it.

i like the safty set up on my XD's


PS: Taurus is also fine as well in my collection

I got a Glock 23 and have been meaning to go to the range to fire some rounds through it. If you wanna tag along you can send a few down range. Won't be this weekend maybe sometime next week or next weekend.

I have had several full size glocks and SpringField XD's in .40 cal, I also have had 1 Glock 27 and a baby XD .40 cal, both are very good guns but I would buy the XD over the G27. I would not waste my money on the cheaper models.

I have a Kahr cw40, I've been really happy with. It shoots great, single stack magazine so if keeps it fairly slim for a carry pistol. Recoil is probably stronger than others due to the lightweight of the pistol. I've looked at xd and flocks but at the time I couldn't really afford that much.
