I got my XDS 45 back some time ago from the recall. Being brand new I had not had a chance to even fire the pistol at all until today. Since we had a little rain today I set a target stand outside the garage door down the hill and with the extended magazine shot 7 rounds at around 15 yards as quick as I could but still retaining some solid control of the pistol. That is the way it will be if used for self defense! Not precise shots as in target shooting since that is the way one should train for self defense anyway. "Out of the holster on target and fire"! It was done with using the support hand position. Here is the target today at 15 yards. I did let "two go" a little wild but overall for the first time with the new gun and not being accustomed to the grip and trigger at this time. I was more than satisfied with the performance of the pistol and it's accuracy right out of the box. I will be carrying it in the New De Santis Leather Ankle Holster as I reported in my previous thread. As well as this winter when it gets colder out and I am wearing better clothes to conceal it I will also carry it in the Plastic Paddle Holster that came with the kit!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
