I've been looking at getting another pistol. One of them is the XD compact in .45. I got the chance to handle it today after going to the range. It's a nice gun but the grip safety seems like a major nuisance. Though I only handled it for a minute. It was impossible for me to depress the mag release with any speed or even single handedly because my hand is also holding down the grip safety. Does anyone else have this problem?
