I was up in the air between the Walther PPS and the XDS. I found a gun shop that had both in stock. The XDS felt a lot better in my hand. That front red fiber optic sight on the XDS is also a plus. They had two 9 round mags left and I bought those too. Now my XDM 3.8 .45 has a little brother. If I can only get time off from work to get to the range.
