But now its nice and short and fun to shoot
yeah...thats the trigger reset...Glocks have it too and from what ive read its shorter on Glocks...however...either way once you learn to use it...followup shots are easier and quicker

Maybe this will help with the SA vs DA vs striker-fired confusion....http://www.handguninfo.com/Archive/w...com/xddasa.htm

Defining The XD
Quote:
The XD is correctly classified as a single-action design, meaning it is fully cocked by racking the slide

GLOCK
While the Glock pistol might more accurately be described as "single-and-a-half-action only," the Glock pistol was one of the first to use the DAO-style action with an internal striker rather than an exposed hammer. In operation, the Glock striker is half-cocked when the slide is racked, allowing the shooter to take advantage of a lighter but still uniform trigger pull. the Glock's trigger pull is approximately 5 to 8 pounds, as opposed to most DAO pistols with a 10- to 12-pound trigger pull.

XDs are great. I bought an XD45 not long after they came out a few years ago and have never had a problem with it. If you're fat like me, it's even a decent concealed carry gun
