I usually carry either an XDs45 or XDs9. I sold my Shield (which I liked quite a bit) when I added my first XDS, because the XDs was a better fit for my tastes. My G27 performs great, but sits at home and is rarely shot. Maybe I'll sell it. And those statements are 100% personal preference...so you just have to figure out what suits your expectations best.
I would trust any of these guns. I would choose to buy whichever fit me best.
