Cocked & Locked 1911 vs XDS

Wasn’t really thinking before - the 1911 has TWO safeties in operation for cocked and licked - thumb and grip safety. The only safety my XDS has is a grip safety.

Well, there is the trigger safety on the xds, that makes two.

Most of my 1911's only have one safety. (one of them has three!) But they have light triggers.

My XDS trigger is better than most, but light aint in the description.

My XDs trigger was so unlike the rest of my lighter triggers that I got rid of it because it was hard to shoot for me. I have been using light triggers all my life so my trigger finger had been trained.

Those are two different platforms. My Smith MP 9 has no safety but the trigger is such an AD would only happen if you did something like catching the trigger while re-holstering & shoved hard.

Any mechanical safety, ether active or passive, only serves to protect a person from the conseqneces of his/her own neglgence. The number and type of safeties really mean very little if anything. The crucial safety is between the gun handler's ears.
