Well, I read all the reviews and watched the videos, and I got an XDs 45 anyway. The first 50 rounds produced two light strikes. I read about the death grip you have to keep on this gun in order to avoid that. So I chalked them up to the learning curve. Took it home, cleaned & lubed, added Trijicon HD sights, and Talon rubber grips. Back to the range for more break-in. 3 light strikes and two trigger reset failures. So the lemon (I mean gun) is on its way back to SA. I will say the CS was very pleasant to deal with and efficient. I received another call tonight for some more in-depth information. I am very pleased with their level of interest in this issue and hope they are successful in identifying and fixing the problem. I will say these guns will go out of battery (round chambered) with the slightest backward pull of the slide 1/8 - 1/4". SA confirmed this over the phone tonight. This happens every time a round is chambered. Personally, I see this as a design flaw and potential issue on the draw. I can imagine a scenario where the gun gets pushed down slightly while holstered going out of battery making it inoperable on the draw. In my opinion, this gun has a design flaw in the recoil spring, the retractor, or both. Neither is likely related to my trigger reset issue. I hope they fix my gun, but how, or even if I carry it will require a lot of thought and shootin'. For what it's worth, I put snap caps in all my Glocks and Rugers and could not replicate the battery issue.
