XDs are fairly popular in IDPA competition, but not as much perhaps as Glocks, M&Ps, and some other plastic-framed guns, as the XD has been determined to be a single action design, while virtually every other striker-fired gun on the market is considered "double action", and so legal for Stock Service Pistol division. The XD must be shot in Enhanced Service Pistol, where most guns are more highly tuned and modified. The XD is perfectly adequate, but there's not as much tuning and modifying to be done to it as to some other models. If you don't shoot it well - as well as other guns you've shot - then your confidence level is going to be low, and that's not a good way to get started in competition.
