    The xds won my mental argument of "xds vs. Shield", just because. I have the $ to buy now, and would like to do it ASAP somewhere between Syracuse and Auburn. I prefer 45 over 9mm, but only slightly. I found a 45 today for $595 not including tax, and no interest in dickering. I know where...

    So, continuing on from my first post, M&P9c vs M&P Shield, the M&P9c is out of the running. After reading opinions, here and elsewhere, I've decided if I'm going sub-compact, let's go all in. The M&Pc is only about .6" different from my G23, while the Shield is not only smaller, but narrower. I...

    After shooting a buddy's XDs with the green fiber optic front site, I decided to do the same. The green seems much, much brighter to me than the factory installed red one. Very easy to do, just follow the directions in the manual. Hardest part is cutting off the tiny bulb of the fiber optic on...

    I posted this question on another forum Im a member of, I'd like to get your opinions also - I always wonder if people reading these threads are also members of the same forums....anyway...... I picked it up yesterday, and went to a local range, Mitchell Field. At 10 yds, it (I?) was shooting...

    I am in the market for a new holster. I like having outside but also need to cover it up better at times. I am a skinny guy and i like a secure feel. thought about a 511 shirt holster too. i had a crossbreed style but it seemed to pinch a lot. Looking for advice on what some of you guys...

    So I sent my XDs to Springfield and got a return number. Did not hear from them so I called Springfield. They said at least a month turnaround from when they received it. I thought it was going to be a week. Oh well nothing I can do but be wary.:(

    Hey Everyone, Just wanted to get opinions of the Springfield Armory XDS 9mm. I have read positive reviews online. Does anyone own one or have experience with the XDS line? -ElCamMan515

    I hope this isn't too similar to the XD-S post here. Someone I know is comparing these 2 guns in 9mm. I have my thoughts, was just curious about others. Please stick to only these 2, no other recommendations. I would like to be able to share the responses with this guy. Do your best to...

  12. Handguns
    Not sure if anyone else is interested in this little arm but I emailed Springfield last week and got a response within 3hrs. I asked if they had plans to get the new XDs, currently only available in .45, out in a 9mm or .40 platform. She kindly replied that 9mm guns began shipping last week...

    Hey everyone, Just got back from the range shooting my Ruger 10/22, the M&P 22 and my new Springfield XDs. :-) Haven't gone in a while so it was definitely a much needed break from work around the house. Anyway, I had a question regarding the XDs. I shot 100 rounds through it (50 Remington...

    I'm thinking of buying the XDs. I'm still unsure on whether to get the 9mm or .45. I currently own a XD .40 subcompact and love it! I'm wanting to get the XDs for easier concealment it the summer months. Does any one have either or both of these guns. Any pros or cons? Thanks, RJ
  15. Handguns
    I'm looking to pick up a smaller than my 1911 pistol in .45 and love the looks of the XDs...except, there seems to be a lot of negative reviews, especially on YouTube about this gun. Also thinking about the Sig 220. What are your experiences with this gun ( XDs)...owners only please.
  16. Handguns
    I have been looking at them for a bit now and I am down to the SR1911 or XDS 45 any comments.
  17. Handguns
    Figure they might start getting scarce in the short term. This freakin sucks.

    I was just watching some youtube videos and stumbled into some XDs reviews and am now very interested in the firearm (kinda getting ahead of myself here as I havent even turned in my pistol permit application yet :o) Do any of you guys own/carry an XDs? If so how do you like it? I was...
