Supposedly the XD has the same grip angle as the 1911, which is said to be the "perfect grip angle" for a handgun. That may be why you like it. Other than pure capacity I prefer the 220. Just MHO. Still any new gun is a good one. I would buy a new one every week if I had the money. At least you have something to show for it besides paper that inflates every 5 yrs. An equivalent gun in 5 yrs. will cost you about $50-$80 more. Buy all you can afford and enjoy
I like my XD's a lot. They shoot great, zero problems and high capacity mags. I have to say there's nothing like a 1911, but I'm looking at the soon to be released XDm-45 right now. I don't think anything compares to the XD's in their price range. IMHO you made a good choice.
