They are the same, both are polymer framed striker fired guns. The 30 is a compact and the XD is a full size.

The only edge, if you even want to call it that, is that the XD has a grip safety. Other than that, as Matt stated, they are quite the same short of the size.

I own several Glocks, and an XD in 9mm. All are good dependable guns.

If you can rent either at a local range, shoot them both. See which feels better to you.

Gotta Vote.....

GLOCK. For your purposes leave stock except for a 3.5# connector,night sights(check out the Tru-Glo TFO's), and a very well done $.25 trigger job. Spare mag or two,practice,practice,practice....your good to go. -----pruhdlr

Just remember that Glocks can not shoot lead bullets. So if you plan on shooting any cast lead bullets, skip any Glock.

I have never owned or shot and XD but I have owned several Glocks and still own two, a mod 19 and 26. I like them both and would trust my life on them. I replaced the barrel in my 19 for $100 so I could shoot lead bullets. I have heard good things about the XD though.

If you get the Glock get a Butt Plug for it. I like the Glock for carry weight, but that is the only plastic pistol I have at the moment.
