xd's a good gun, i'd say pretty much a glock. i looked into them, not too closely but a little, prior to getting my first handgun a year and a half ago. you have the grip safety, trigger safety, striker fire... i've heard the finish can wear out pretty quick - i've also been told that's not true and it's just a rumor - but people also call sigs rustbuckets, and although the blackening does wear off the steel underneath's still pristine. it's really all how well you take care of the gun. the XD's solid though, good platform, mags are pretty cheap if i remember, springfield's a good company... if you like it, i'd grab it. if you can take one for a test run first, do that, if any ranges near you rent. i still like that first pistol (p99) and won't sell it, but i hardly ever shoot it now as i've found stuff i like more. you might be able to save a little money if you shop around though, you end up tacking on $40 for shipping and transfers if you order the gun but you should be able to get one sub-$450 and no sales tax to worry about if you look around.
I have put 3 of those Springfields through the course at our gun club and they all came away with high scores. They are similar to my Glocks, they are very accurate within the 3 to 35 feet at which I fired the weapons on target.
I am not sure of the dependability of the Springfield verses the Glock because they just have not be out there in the public long enough. However, things look good in my eyes for anyone wanting a Springfield XD40 etc.
