Add me to the list of NEW XDs owners! I got mine last night. I been interested in them for awhile and each time I checked them out at a gun shop I fell in love with how it felt in my hand!

It will be awhile before I'm able to 'test' mine out due to continued recovery from shoulder surgery but I'm pretty confident I'll like it based on past XDM experience & the things I've read so far!

For the most part I got the impression by those who have shot one, that the kick & muzzle flip isn't anywhere near as much as was expected! All in all it sounds like SA took care to insure that in their development of this new gem!

It's almost identical in size to the Walther PPS that I traded in when I bought it. ...but the XDs feels so much more comfortable & balanced in my hand. It also seems like it will be more comfortable in my IWB Tagua holster than the PPS ...and perhaps almost as comfortable as my CM9.

Thanks for the Congrats & shoulder sympathy! The other shoulder was operated on about 11 years ago and hasn't been 100% since I injured it, even after surgery.

....I'll be fondling my XDs a lot before my first test run though .....LOL ...Hope that doesn't sound toooo perverted! ...LOL

Having second thoughts....

Please tell me I didn't make a hasty mistake! I just got done reading a couple of reviews about the XDs that have me concerned! Unlike my CM9 pre-purchase, I didn't do a lot of research on reviews of the XDs!

I mainly based my decision on another forum (NOT XD FORUM) member's stellar recommendation as well as a stellar review he sent me by Rod Latham ...and Springfield Armory's great XDM reputations!


Now I'm reading as many as 2 in 10 on this forum as unhappy! Lots of reports of "not going into full battery" issues. I wasn't familiar with that terminology didn't even know what it meant until I looked it up. I've never had that problem with any previous handguns!

Supposedly it's picky on ammo & has firing pin issues as well!

I haven't even bought any 45 ammo for mine yet & I'm thinking about returning mine where I bought it! I don't know if they will accept returns.

What gives?
