For me there were three things that kept me from buying the XDS:
1. Price. It was listed for $520.
2. Front site. In my opinion the fiber optic front site is not the best option for a self defense gun.
3. It just didn't feel good in my hand. I don't know what it was but it just didn't feel good.
I ended up going with a Glock 27 for $399. I'm not bashing the XDS, I think it will be a great option for a lot of people but it just wasn't for me.
