Nice pistol. I am looking to pick up an XD9 Subcompact for my wife and I. I was considering the Glock 26 but after holding it at my local shop yesterday I am sold. The one thing I didn't like though was that the rear grip safety needed to be engaged to rack the slide. It was fine for chambering a round, but to actually lock the slide back I usually grip the pistol in a way that my hand doesn't totally depress that safety. Maybe if I added an extended slide lock like I did with my Glock 23 it would help. I am sure I will get used to it, and it definitely wasn't a deal breaker. I too like the striker and loaded chamber indicators, and the pistol seems to be very well made.
My theory on the general public is that they're like mushrooms, they thrive when you feed em $hit and keep em in the dark.
