I wasn't a fan of Glocks, but after buying this G21 my opinion of them has changed alot. It's a very solid gun that is extremely accurate.
As far as the Springfield XD, I shot one before I bought my Glock. It's a nice gun, and I like the trigger better than my Glock, but the Glock fit my hand alot better and was seemed to be more accurate than the Springfield. Also, I thought the XD was pretty ugly as well.
Once I'm done with the academy and hired with the Sheriffs Dept, I plan on carrying a Sig Sauer P220 (45 ACP) or P226 chambered for the .357 SIG round.
Ahh working for the Sheriffs Dept will be priceless - I envy the opportunity to have a trunk lined with all kinds of fun. The Sig is the favorite down here in our local club but they all hate the new guys with the new Springfields - I just can't line anything up with the Glock sites. GL and keep us informed. What's a qualifying score?
