    We have a thread to list problems with your xds and a thread to list rds without problems so how about one to list the discomforts you may encounter.
    Say does your trigger finger get banged up or hurt, Slide bit, does the web of your hand take a beating.

    Well you get the Idea lets hear your stories.

    I have 250+ thru the XDS. I find I have to wear a band aid on the trigger finger. The last outing I did not and came home with a good size blood blister on it. I hope that changes as the gun wears in a bit more. Still like the gun however. It is a keeper and goes where I go and will do so even more when I receive my R Grizzle Leather High Country holster in a few weeks.

    480 rounds so far, today (105 rounds) is the first time I don't have a small blister on my trigger finger. I'm not sure what is getting broken in...the gun or me. So as of today, no issues. I really like shooting this gun.

    My only complaint is that I can't get my whole hand on the grip with the flush mags, but the 7 rounder mags it more comfortable at the range.

    My only discomfort is when I run out of ammo. I found an easy fix to this, though. Just carry a few extra boxes to the range.

    I get a rub spot on the second knuckle of my right thumb.

    *Edit*
    After going to the range again, I find that my XDs no longer rubs on my thumb at all when I shoot it correctly. I wasn't locking my elbow before. After locking my elbow, I can say there is no discomfort whatsoever when shooting my XDs.

    I don't think I have ever shot more than 70 rounds through it at any one time, I have over 450 (I stopped keeping count at 450) through it now and no sores or blisters or malfuctions or anything to report.
    If it starts hurting I would stop shooting til the next day or next week. I don't EVER see this being my Zombie gun, I have others much better suited to that scenerio, if the chit hit the fan I'd only have 11 rounds on me for this gun anyway and if I were shooting IDPA or whatever I would use another gun.

    My pinky gets abused 'cuz I force it on what should be part of the grip. Blister on pad of trigger finger. Sore hands, 'cuz I'm a crotchety ol' curmudgeon that viagra doesn't work on any more, so have the manly-man XDs to makeup for lost ground in that department.
