The vast majority of my handguns are Glock, I LOVE them! I do however have an XDs-45 and have nothing negative to say about it, other than it's not a Glock. I'd prefer the grip safety to disappear, it's just one more thing to fail or potentially get in the way of the gun going boom when I need it to. That's my biggest gripe with XD handguns in general. People say Glock's are ugly, but I find beauty in their simplicity which lends to their utter reliability and what is more important than that in a fighting gun? With that being said, the XDs (and most other XD's I suspect) is a quality made firearm and has been 100% reliable and that's all I can ask from a carry piece.
