    the xd's are a good gun and usually a good value at around $400 used and only slightly more new because the prices dropped when the XD(m)'s came out

    the 539 is old school S&W all steel gun which means it's heavier than an xd and it will also be harder to find mags and holsters for BUT I would buy one if the price is right and the condition is good because they're cool

    the xd is a great range gun and a great workhorse mine is very accurate and has had no issues but it's kinda boring

    If you want a modern gun with possibility for upgrade and affordable aftermarket parts then the XD is the way to go. The 539 is a solid weapon. It really comes down to whether you like the striker fire or the hammer fire gun. Honestly, if you can get the 539 for cheaper then get that one since i personally think it has a better feel to it.

    no he really wants a 45 acp. Keep your eyes on the watch. You want the S&W M&P 45.:winkkiss:

    If you already have other modern pistols, get the S&W because it's a cool old pistol. But if you're looking for something practical for carry or defense I'd go with the XD.
