So before it became a problem, I unholstered it and grabbed my shield 45. I'll probably end up selling the xde 9 and the 45.

    Never liked ambi safeties, and now I know better than to ever buy another gun with an ambi mag release.

    Oh, I do have an HK p2000sk, and love it. Definitely gonna get another HK.
    The thing with truly ambi safeties is that they usually require a harder press to release because they have to translate a crosswise force into a front to back force. But a single side release just uses a direct force in line with the mag release press (I hope that makes sense). I noticed this on my XDs and my P10C. I prefer single side mag releases even though I'm left-handed.

    If the XDe is anything like the XDs release then I personally would not be that worried about it. I've never had my XDs come close to releasing inadvertently. I'm actually considering and XDe in .45 just for something different and with 1 extra round than most single stacks of that size.

    I've had an M&P puke the mag out on me almost every time I racked the slide and the Shield release is very similar. Though again my issue was lefty-induced.

    Y'all feeling sorry for us lefties yet?

    The mag releases on the S&W's keep me from buying any of them.

    Doesn’t help the OP, but for those who might not be aware...Glock designs their Sport/Combat OWB holster such that the mag release is protected.

    Carry a sidearm always. Be able to put shots into the torso and then head, if needed. The rest is much less important.

    Personally, I find the Shield much more worrisome, the mag release isn't recessed and it releases very easily, or at least it did on the Shield EZ I looked at. Does the regular Shield release as easily as the EZ?

    I don't know about the EZ, I've never handled one. I haven't had any problems with either of my shields. Not yet anyway. The release is pretty well protected from anything bumping into it when it's not exposed like it is on the xde. Ymmv.

    I will be on the lookout for a holster that will cover the release. I do like the xde. It's a pretty sweet shooter. I like the 45 best.

    Crossdraw in the car with Vedder LightTuck holster in reverse cant position. Problems solved and easier/quicker access to firearm.

    It looks like the iwb kydex holsters from Cooks covers the mag release button on the thumb side of the pistol, but I have not seen a kydex holster that covers the mag release button on both sides.

    Carry a wheelgun? :) ( sorry, I had to)

    I usually carry at about 2:00 so it isn't an issue, but I would either find a holster that covers the release, or move the holster a bit.

    No need to apologize....That thought always occurs to me whenever something goes wrong. A snub was my first carry gun.

    Walther PPS. Ambidextrous safety, can't be accidentally pressed, easy to activate with the shooting hand middle finger.

    This is the reason I carry an S&W 638.

    This was happening to my XDM fairly often and it took me forever to figure out what and how it was happening. I was carrying at 5:00, I moved it to 4:00 and problem solved. I now carry a 1911 and haven’t had the same problem at all.

    We've probably all seen this, but it fits so well :)

    It is all about what works for you. However, I would first try different holster and if no go try modification of safety. I really don't see a lot of value in ambi safety, so I would just remove one side of safety.
