Good deal. I love mine and have had several people want to buy mine from me after shooting it. Recoil is not bad at all but it did take practice on my grip and form to shoot accurate with it.


YES!!!

The grip is important with this gun. Remember this is a 45 so shoot it like a 45 and not some 22 rimfire. Manhandle the thing like it was built to be. Your target scores will improve fast.

One other thing. When loading it slam the slide home, don't try to ease the slide in while loading a round, you will get hung up everytime. It's smaller and has a short travel so pull the slide all the way back and let it slam home.

Go to the link I posted and read the XDS forum, all the info you ever wanted to know about it is there.

Now I'm waiting on the new 9mm XDS that will be coming out this spring.

I want one bad, but I just can't get past the grip safety.

My 9mm XDM I got a few years ago was my first pistol with a grip safety and it did take a little getting used to but now I don't even think about it so this new .45 will be easy
