The grip safety pretty much kills those things for me. That and they just feel "weird" in my hands. I'll take a Glock over an XD every time.

Guess I'll add a picture.

If anyone is interested in what the grip safety does on the XD, here's a little video showing a cutaway close-up. IMO, blocking a sear on something with a light trigger pull is a pretty good thing. Since it has a striker block, pinning down the XD grip safety would be like removing the thumb safety on an 80 series 1911 which I never see anyone do.

I had a bi-tone XD9 back when they were new to market, and I liked it a lot. Matter of fact, it's the only pistol I've ever sold that I'd like to have back. It was flawless while I had it, and I loved the ergos.

Point great, shoot good, like metal mags, like standard sights, like grip safety.

I love the entire XD line, but especially the XDms.

I love Glocks and 1911's, that being said, the XD's are the best of both worlds FOR ME. I have small hands, and looking at the G21 and G30, they were just too fat in my hand. A friend suggested that I look at the XDm45, and with the adjustable backstraps, it felt really good in my hands. I also had a chance to rent and shoot one, and it shot very well for me. I really don't understand the issue with the grip safeties. I shot IPSC with a 1911, and never heard anyone with a 1911 have a stoppage because their grip safety failed. I now use it for my nightstand weapon. I put on Tru Glo TFO's, and a Streamlight, and that's it. The only issue I have is trying to get a holster for it, it seems no one makes one for a XD with a light. I'm sure it would be easier to find one for a G21 w/light on it. I also bought a XD45C for carrying. Again, the grip is slimmer, the slide is thinner, and it holds 10 rds with a 13rd mag and a sleeve. Really nice setup. On that weapon, I put on TFO's, And a rubberized grip decal. That's it. If you are looking at the G30S and have smaller hands, look at the XD45C. The XDm45C, for some reason has a 9rd mag, but it comes with a 13rd mag with a sleeve on it. I do love my XD's.

I love the idea of the XDm compact with the extended magazine. When you need the small size, you can use the standard magazine, but for those of us with hands that are as wide as they are long, the extended grip length that comes with the extended magazine is a great addition. If I ever decide to do concealed carry, or when I decide to get a 9mm, I think the XMm9 compact will be my choice.

I want to like the XD, but the grip safety really turns me off. Its the one thing I don't like about 1911's either.

The only reason grip safeties are on 1911s is because the Army insisted. It wasn't Browings idea IIRC.

I owned an XD9 Service maybe ten years ago and regret trading it off. I bought an XD45 Compact a few months ago and love this gun. They fit my hands much better than any of my Glocks ever did. I'm saving up to buy an XDs. tom.

We started out with an XDm .45 because my wife liked it and wanted something with a large capacity and bigger than a 9mm or .40 on the nightstand.

We both took to it better than our Glock 22 and it shot far better for both of us.

A couple of months ago she came home with an XDs and a used XD Tactical .40. Both of them are just great and we spend time arguing over which one is who's gun. For striker fired poly guns the triggers are not bad and neither of us are bothered by the grip safety at all. I don't know much about the tacticals or the history of my used one, but it has the nicest trigger. I have shot older SA autos that weren't as nice. It has become easily my favorite, out of 4, platform to shoot the .40 out of.

The XD series is favorite around here

I have an XD-45 Tactical as my nightstand gun, and an XD-9 Subcompact I use in my CCW inventory. I love them both, and the subcompact is quickly becoming my favorite winter carry piece.

They're very well made handguns. I had a couple very minor gripes with the XDM I owned. Just didn't suit me so I traded it out.

Performance wise, it was excellent. No complaints there.

Can't say much bad about them really.

XdM 4.5 9mm owner here. I'm better with it than a G17 or 19. 100% reliable, and 19rd magazines. It's one of my top go-to handguns. I'm looking to pick up another one or two, probably in .45.

If the XD line had been introduced at the same time as the original Glock 17........


.......there would be a lot of people today asking what the heck a Glock is!
