Haters gonna hate.
The only thing I disagree about is the grip. It doesn't matter (at least not in my XD-S) whether you limp wrist it or death grip it, its gonna function fine. It worked fine when I death grip it, which I only did because of the grip safety that I hate. I also limp wristed it with my off hand and it still cycled properly. My wife who is not experienced at all shot it with no problems as well.

I also have had my wife and my brothers girlfriend shoot it and she is a tiny thing and it worked great

That might be your experience, and that's great - but I still think that advocating proper fundamentals and a solid grip is probably the better way to go when talking up the gun.

Some people's definition of limp wristing is another person's definition of a solid grip. I'm a former LE red shirt - I've seen some SERIOUS limp wristing in my day.

It is a tool, the more you use it the better you will get with it. Take care of your tools and they will perform as suited. I have never had a problem with my xds

Well said. I had made similar comments in the SIGTALK forum about the P938. The problem with these forums is that they act like an echo chamber, so "a problem" becomes a a HUGH PROBLEM.

From the time I fired the XDs rental up to and including the 500th round through the one I bought, I found that as longs as I do my part, the XDs does its.

Excellent post IMO!!! I love my XDS so much it's the only gun I own that I want to shoot more and more. Also pretty sure I will be getting an all black one to go with my bi-tone. Like shoes I need to have the same thing in multiple colors

Both my daughters who are a little higher than the Novice level hate the XDS, it functioned fine for both but in their words, "its not comfortable to hold, it kicks to much and the grips hurt my hands" and thats fine by me, they went back to the Ruger P95 9 mill. and the 45 1911 and had fun with them. Your post was a very well written thanks a lot for putting it on the forum, i couldn`t have written it better my self, great job.
