Shoot, maybe I gave misinformation?? I'm pretty sure I don't have to depress the grip safety to slide back the slide... Not at home or I would go check! If I did my apologies.

You might be correct. I can not speak for an xds. Only the xd and xdm.

I had a buddy (he owns XD XDM) tell me my XDS slide should lock..Guess he figured the XDS is the same...That's why I had to ask...Mine doesn't lock the slide...Just the trigger...

Can't speak for XDs, but for reference, it definitely locks the slide on an XDm.
