The only complaint I have had with my XD .40 Tactical, is that the grip is somewhat poor and slippery with no finger grooves. I didn't want to go with the "tape on" grips because I worried about not liking them and ruining the gun trying to remove them. My solution was to affix a Houge Overwrap grip and notch out the back portion around the safely. I was worried that the notch would cause the grip to lose its integrity but it did not. The grip feels awesome on it and I'm going to take it to the range tomorrow to assure it doesn't "creep up" and hold in the thumb safety. By all accounts it shouldn't happen as it is on there pretty good and I can't really budge it. I'll let you know how it turns out but it looks like my "A" gun just moved up to "A+".
