Please provide a little more detail about your Springfield's being "safe queens." I just read about the introduction of the XD-S at the 2012 SHOT Show and i was very impressed by the reviews. An article in Guns & Ammo was especially favorable.
Is it a reliability issue? Is the breakdown for cleaning more arduous? What is the issue or issues that bring about your comment?
If you can help me avoid making a mistake (I'm thinking of possibly buying an XD-S) I would really appreciate that!
