but later found you really disliked or hated...? For me, it's a grip safety. I loved, still do, the look of a 1911 style beavertail grip safety, and the idea is still awesome, but I absolutely loathe the actual feel and functionality of it. It forces a very particular style of grip which I, personally don't enjoy or shoot well. I would really like to try that of an XDs or AMT Backup, to get a feel for any differences. I've handled both in shops, but never shot, and that's where the real feel comes in.
