Glock 30S vs Spring field XDS
 
Hey guys,

I'm looking to buy either the Glock 30s or Spring field XDS as my everyday carry. The reason? Cause they both shoot .45 and that's my caliber of preference for self defense for obvious reasons. I would like to read some of your feedback. Thanks in advance!

The xds is the only of the xd line I'd ever consider, and I have many times. Wish I could trade my Glock 30 for one! Truly a beautiful gun from a quality known manufacturer.

Grip safeties rock! No safeties are no go for me for defensive purposes. Plus the xds is single stack isn't it? The glock 30 is double no? I prefer the single stack always, but especially here because 45s are already wide enough to support the large round.

I've yet to shoot the xds let alone hold one up close and personal. I've gotten all my info via research and word of mouth. I'm pretty sure the xds is single stack due to the fact that it Carrys .45 rounds. Thank you for you input!

Look into a Glock 36 as well. Just like the 30, but single stacked

It is single stack, I was just trying not to sound like a know it all. Lol

I haven't shot the xds, only handled in store, but it feels good.

I haven't shot the glock 30, but I shot the xds not to long ago and was quite impressed. I would snatch one up in a heartbeat if I was looking for another carry weapon. The recoil was very manageable for how small it is.

Thanks kalboy26. Appreciate your input. I'm planning on going to the range this week to run a box through it.

I have owned both. I only kept the XDs and it is now part of my carry group. It shoots great and carries better than the Glock, IMO. Good luck, Ed

I shot a friends XDs and I compare it to the Noisy Cricket from Men in Black movie. A LOT of snap. The grips are very sharp. But as far as a concealable .45, nothing is better. I'm partial to my M&P Shield.
