    A question that test firing will answer is whether the prominent guide rod will prevent the slide going out of battery. Even that won't prevent friction on the slide or the sights, or some other mechanism, from pushing the slide out of battery.

    It's possible it will on a hard surface like a sternum or skull, but I'd bet good money that the slide will come out of battery when pressed against softer parts of the body. Of course, the same is true with extended guide rods or extended barrels in Glocks, but we have that option of a thumb behind the slide with them.

    Can we just buy the hammer?

    It'll slide right into the stick loop on my duty belt.

    To quote the XO: "Give a man a hammer and every problem looks like a nail."

    In that case, the XDE is WONDERFUL by comparison.

    You know, if it was something like Thor's hammer, or some kind of cool Viking hammer or something it would actually be interesting.

    Instead it looks like SA did a bulk buy of hammers at the dollar store and paid an intern to stamp them.

    Even if the gun is any good the gimmicky marketing ruins it.
