Joking aside, the only thing I didn't like was the ridge right below the thumb groove, it rubbed on my thumb and got kind of painful after 100 rounds or so... it seems to have gotten better after installing the PRP xtreme grips though.

I didn't buy my XDs to be a range gun so I don't anticipate any issues. My first outing consisted of around 275 rounds and my right hand and wrist were a little sore and I was treated to a bit of slide bite. the next day I shot almost another 150 rounds and my wrist bothered me a bit. I have not had any additional slide bite since my first outing. I don't think trips to the range and putting 100 rounds through my XDs to stay proficient will be any trouble at all.

None I can think of.

Some say it rubs there hand raw after shooting a while, but I've ran about 200rds. in one session w/o any discomfort.

My only discomfort is a lack of ammo. I seem to shoot it all so fast!

Plus, until recently the lack of magazines was a pain too... but a box of mags from Midway cured this!

All levity aside, my only complaint is that my hands feel a bit "buzzed" after a range session.

Thumbs up

I have experienced absolutely no discomforts with my XDS (230 rds.).

After I get 130 more JHP defensive rounds through it this week, it will become my EDC. [Before carrying a firearm, my reliability comfort zone is a minimum of 200 FMJ rds. and 200 JHP rds.] Thus far, the XDS has performed flawlessly.

I will continue to put at least 20-30 rounds per week through the XDS to maintain its defensive capability but, more than likely, will put a lot more rounds through my XD9SC and Ruger Mark III Target to keep ammo costs down. Because I also keep a Ruger SR1911 as my primary home defense firearm, I always try to shoot at least 20-30 rds. per week through it as well.

The only discomfort I have had with mine was on a really hot day and I was sweating like crazy and I started to get some blistering on my hand. I have not had any blistering or other problems since then.

My only discomfort was the day after I put 200 rounds through mine! My wrist was a bit sore but what can you expect after that many .45acp rounds? Other than that....no discomfort, blisters, slide bite, yadda, yadda....
