If it's smaller, then definitely. I pocket carry my XDS.

Curious as to your resistance to the grip safety. It does not require any extra manipulation, IMHO.

To each their own, I picked the XDS over the Shield because of the grip safety.

Yes you are correct but to me the more "gizmo's" then the more screw-ups will take place and or malfunction.
I like simplicity .

An injured hand or even a weak-handed grip during a bad situation would prevent you from shooting it .

Not an issue with me. On the Internet I am a wicked badass who would totally dominate any firefight and never get injured!

Not sure about the XDs, but when I held any one of my 7 XD models (service, tactical and sub-compact) loose enough to not engage the grip safety, one shot would have the gun flying out of my hand for sure. The weak hand - XD thing has been going on since it's introduction but if you try to shoot it in any crazy way, it still goes boom.

For those that will only have a few fingers left and half a palm after an accident and need to shoot their gun, there is a nice money making product for you here: http://shop.springerprecision.com/pr...?productId=112

Don't see one for the XDs, but I'm sure enough complaints will have them create one.

Anyone gripping a gun that weakly is not likely to hit their target anyway. Why do you suppose Uziel Gal put such an allegedly failure prone part on the Uzi 50 years after the Colt 1903 hit the market and 40 years after the 1911s debut? The 1911 and Uzi have seen a hell of a lot of combat between them. The 1903 is likewise considered a very reliable pistol. I have one made in 1914 that still works fine.

You might get some Noob to shooting to believe this nonsense.
It could also prevent you from shooting any pistol with that hand. You'd be better off switching to the other hand because if your hand is that injured or weak your not going to hit jack with it any way. I believe that's why so many of us practice with both hands. This is and old argument that just doesn't make sense and never did. Real truth is the grip safety is a good idea that takes no manipulation if you grab the pistol the way your supposed to.

Good post. I have a 1903 made in 1931 that is in excellent condition and the GS is easy to disengage on that as well. Funny how nobody ever mentions a weak hand moment for the P7 and it's squeeze cocker, but a grip safety and thumb safety are nails in the coffin.

Yes a P7 requires much more initial pressure.
