    I've never sold a firearm before.

    Anyway, I just cannot get used to that USA trigger - I'll probably get a 1911 when I sell it.

    TIA.

    You've had the gun less than a month? There is a certain amount of break in period you should give a gun. I don't consider a gun broken in until at least 1k rounds. By broken in I mean, finding a good ammo load, tweaking/tuning the magazines, trigger, sights, etc.

    I don't care if it's an XD, 1911 or Glock, each gun will take a little bit of "break in". That's like trying to find a wife from speed dating.

    I just don't the USA trigger - it's way too long IMO.

    I've only put about 200-300 rounds through it.

    The bitch didn't put out so kick her to the curb. Oh maybe this is why I'm not married.

    Really though I don't think it would take very long to figure out a pistol is garbage, breaking in period or otherwise..

    Characteristics of a trigger changes through break in, Glocks, M&P's are almost prime examples. If that were the case, I would have tossed my Glocks out the window a long time ago. Fact is, they get better with use. How do you know that if you give up on it rite away.

    What is the #1 recommendation for new shooters that hate the trigger... shoot it more.

    Stock Glock triggers, along with most stock triggers are garbage, doesn't mean they are not good guns. Why do you think Charlie Vanek is so busy? :mamoru:

    I find it funny that some shooters that complain about pull length and reset, don't know the first thing about breaking a shot to begin with.

    I like th gun otherwise but I don't like the trigger, I really don't see how trigger pull would change with breakin.

    It's a mechanical part that's mass produced. They need a certain polish to get the engagement of the disconnect/sear, etc to enage smoothly.

    I care very what camp you decide to go to, I have very little vested in what other people shoot. I just want you to know that before you make a decision. I have nothing to gain by it. :)

    Well it's the pull and the USA design - I really dislike it. Sure I'll improve with practice but a traditional trigger would be much better for me IMO.

    While it is true that the trigger and gun will improve somewhat over time. It is really never a dramatic improvement, lets be honest. For people that know what a decent trigger should be they can fire a gun and see that it might have potential. Possibly they do some research and conclude there might be potential. More likely they will pull the trigger and decide "garbage".

    I don't pull punches or try to be nice. If I think something is garbage I will say so. There are several pistols that I just don't care about the ergonomics or design. It did not take me long to form these opinions.

    I'd rather send it off instead of wasting money on ammo.

    Why do people complain about the trigger safety lever, if you are using the trigger correctly it should be a non-issue

    Because people are different. The trigger safety is not designed for ergonomics. If it were it would be completly flush when depressed. What might feel fine for one person may not feel right to somebody else. Some people can be told this is the right way and they just buy into it or get used to it. There is no "correct way for everybody".

    Some people prefer a hinged/pivot trigger others prefer a strait pull trigger (1911).

    I've never shot an XD, so I don't know what it's like, but I do know I'm not a fan of Glock's trigger lever.
    I like a smooth unobstructed trigger surface.
