A 40 caliber in a subcompact polymer frame is not my idea of a good time. Sharp, snappy recoil and a lot of muzzle flip.

Are you planning on carrying either of these? If so, the XD would be my vote. If its a fun gun or range gun, then the 1911 gets the nod.

Well this is about the least helpful thread I have posted lol. I was hoping to get people's thoughts on the guns, not the companies that make them. If you have an XD of any kind or a High Standard 1911 feedback on them would be great. I appreciate the participation but its really not helping my decision. I'm leaning towards the XD40 to carry.
Both are good guns. You just didn't provide any info on how the gun would be used. If its CCW, then go with the XD. If its anything else, go with the High Standard.

....but to clear up the 1911 SA/DA myth its ALWAYS a SA trigger on a 1911, not a double action. The trigger has one function, not two, despite dropping the hammer. The trigger wont do anything until you rack the slide/lower the hammer.
A gave the guy a second chance, but apparently it was too subtle. Thanks for clearing up more misinformation in this thread. I just didnt have it in me.

My SR40 is a single action
That's not entirely true either. The striker on the SR models is only kept partially cocked as the slide is racked, but not fully cocked. The striker is fully cocked and then released as the trigger is pulled. So technically, the trigger on the SR guns leans more toward DAO (double action only) since the trigger is performing two functions with each pull, partially cocking the striker and also releasing the sear.
