    I'm sick and tired of these guns. The grip safety locking the action is absolutely pointless, and a dangerous feature IMO. Today at work is the second time I have severely cut myself on these pieces of scheisse! I'm pretty rough with guns, especially when running malfunction drills, racking the slide, etc. I hate them, I despise them, I want nothing to do with them, I don't want to ever hear about them again, I don't want to show them to people at work, I don't want to sell them. If I am being attacked and I have my choice of a Springfield XD or my bare hands, I will choose my bare hands. H&K's, Berettas, Glocks, S&W's all make excellent polymer frame autos, so why have one that wants to chop your fingers off!!!! ARGH%$^#^#$%^! ;) lol As you can probably tell I am still very angry. I bled pretty profusely after this little incident today (it was worse than it looks, it was deep):

    I will say that the grip saftey is probably the only "problem" I have with my XD, until I had the grip done on my Glock, I loved my XD, still do, just not as much as my 23.....

    I had a 40 cal sub compact Kboom on me last year! Slit the polymer frame and pinched the crap out me. Blew the extractor off of the slide but other than that I was OK.

    I cannot comment either having never shot one or owned one. But I picked one up once and just didnt like the way it felt in my hand??? It just felt like it was going to come apart.

    hmmm

    My guess:

    Tried locking the slide with a full grip on the slide but did not fully depress the grip safety, slide did not retract and kinda bumped back and caught some skin?
