    I went to the range today and shot 100 rounds of 9mm and 100 of .45 ACP.

    With the XD-9 my groupings are about 2 inches in diameter at 20 feet.
    With the XDS 45 my groupings are much larger, about 7 inches in diameter at 20 feet.

    For those of you that own or have shot both of these guns, I am interested in your experience with their accuracy compared to each other.

    I sure wish I could shoot the XDS with the same level of accuracy.

    I routinely shoot 2-3" groups with my XDs at 7 yds shooting at a steady pace, 3 shots in 5-7 seconds.

    Practice, practice, practice.

    5 shots @ 10 yards. Maybe the 100 rounds of 9 wore on you.

    +1. With plenty of range time, I'm now shooting around 2" groups at 8 yards. I'm slowly going further, just started practicing 10 yds. I hope to replace my stock sights with either Truglo HDs or ameriglo hack sights...saving my $$.

    Great gun, enjoy...happy shooting!

    I've marveled at the accuracy of the XDS. It's a better gun than I am a shooter.

    Here's my last trip to the range (details below)

    Is the 9mm out ? I haven't been on this side of town in a while :(

    I am itching for a new ccw for pocket carry , did they release the 9 yet ?

    Try reading it again...:roll::mrgreen:

    XD-9

    Besides the XDS is too big for pocket carry, either 45ACP or 9MM..
    If you want a 9mm pocket carry, then a Kahr PM9 or CM9 would be in order..
