Just bought a new xds, racking the slide seems to be more difficult, than my other guns! If I don't use a more concentrated effort or force, a round gets lodged awkwardly in the chamber! The grip safety is a concern as well. As some has shared, it takes noticeably more grip to disengage the grip safety!! These things are insignificant at the gun range, but might be a death sentence in a real life crises! Going to give it some time and rounds to see if I can't get comfortable with these issues! Love the gun, it's size, and it's accuracy!! But??
