New member, and new XDs 45 owner. I finally made it to the range this afternoon with two new pistols. One my XDs 45 cal, and the other my Glock Gen G27 40 cal. I wish I would have taken a little more ammo. I shot a box of target ammo out of each, and several mags of Federal self defense ammo with each (probably 75 rounds thru each/150 total). I used two eight inch targets side by side at 7 yrds. I was a little concerned about recoil from the sub compacts, but it turned out to be not a issue at all. I shot both OK, and even shot them both one handed with my strong side ( If I had brought more ammo I would have shot some with my weak side). I did shoot the Glock slightly better at 7 yrds, but I own several Glocks so I am more used to the larger grip. I did install a short piece of bike tube on the XDs to increase the grip size, but I don't really think it mattered. I felt comfortable with both, and think I shot the XDs better than the Glock when I was shooting one handed. I woke up this morning coughing, and with clogged up sinuses, so I was not 100%. I had the day off from work, so I hit the range anyway. Looking forward to another trip soon.
