I wouldn't count out the xds. My brother bought one and I was blown away by how soft shooting it is. I myself carry a glock 26 and I really don't feel like there is a hige difference in felt recoil. That xds is some kind of engineering miracle.

I honestly do not get the idea that the 45 ACP is some sort of hand cannon.

My experience is that the 45 shoots much like a 9mm and is easier to control than a hot 40.

I have shot 45'sin full size handguns from Ruger, Springfield, Glock, and Hk - and the same sort of variety in 9mm and honestly cannot tell the difference in felt recoil. Neither can my wife.

I have done the same in small handguns - Kahr Cw, Glock 36, S&W Etc and still do not see a difference between the 45 and 9mm.

The pistol I thought kicked the most was a little 40. That was noticeably more potent but far from unmanageable.

Bottom line - if you can handle a 9 you can handle a 45

Try it or maybe you can find one at a gun shop or gun show to get the feel.
Did u do work on glock urself

Agreed, although the only experience I have shooting a .45 unfortunately is a full size Ruger rental about two years ago. I also rented a Glock 19 (might've been a 17, I forget now - but it was definitely a 9mm and not the 26). I didn't notice too much. Not sure specifically off hand but I believe the Ruger is a heavier gun. That might've been it.

On the other hand, I own a Taurus in .40 which is similar in size to my M&P9c. The recoil is much snappier (might even say harsher) in the .40. The .40 is 18.7 ounces while the 9 is 21.7 ounces. In my opinion, not far enough away in weight to account for the difference in felt recoil.

The only time I noticed a difference between 9 and 45 is when I didn't have earplugs.

Look at a Walther PPS. Same as G26 but single stack. Shield is good gun but trigger blows.
