I purchased a new xds 45 a couple weeks ago, but due to weather/work/flu I hadn't got to shoot it before my CCW class. I was really worried with all of the posts about light strikes/feeding problems and I was going to be shooting my new xds for the first time at the CCW class. I got to shoot about 50 rounds in class with 0 problems. My only complaint is those grips are almost painful with the aggressive texture/cold weather. I'll probably get something to soften the grip soon and maybe order some 7 round mags.
