Last is my favorite point about the XD which is grumbled about constantly.
This is a pic of the grip safety (1911-style)
Alot of people actually view this as a negative mark for this pistol. To each their own, but I will say one thing regarding this:
People love the saying "My trigger finger is my safety". Go back through history, and tell me what has failed more over the history of firearms?
1. Has the failures of mechanical safeties been more responsible for accidental discharges of firearms, or
2. Has the failures of trigger finger safeties been more responsible for accidental discharges of firearms.
I think everyone knows the answer. There is nothing wrong with having a grip safety on a firearm. Especially if the grip safety is well designed, and not even noticeable when holding the pistol. I cannot see how this is a negative thing.
I hope my last few posts have helped some people out there make a good choice as to what firearm they may purchase next, and I hope some people maybe have learned something.
In the end, it's up to you what firearms are good for you. Stick to what works for YOU. Just make sure you are educated about the firearm you choose.
