Default Glock to XD-S?

I bought my first Springfield Armory product last year because I was tired of buying Glocks, CZs, and Rugers..
and the price was right.

So far, I've shot my XD-S .45 more than a few times and found that it handles both 230 grain FMJ practice
ammo and my Double Tap +P ammo just fine.

Far better than the also light, but very wispy to shoot Glock 36 than I sold quickly.

The XD-S recoil spring system seems superior to Glock's for recoil control.

So, that said.

I have to tell you that@7 yards, 10 yards, or even 20 yards, the XD-S is super accurate, and
far more accurate than my new Glock 43.

One hole groups if I concentrate on the trigger.

Nothing else that I have will do that, and only my old CZ97B would shoot that good!

The Springfield holds as many rounds ( 5-6-7 shot mags) and throws a much bigger bullet.

That said, I'm now looking at buying a new XD-S (Bi-Tone) 4.0 in 9mm for winter carry, esp. with their
gear promotion going on.

Holster(s) would be no problem as I already have an IWB for my XD-S 3.3 that Should work for
the 4.0 bi-tone.

I like the Glock compact frames but I don't care for the baby Glocks. I'm very happy with the XD-S 3.3 in .45, points very natural for me.

I've run my XD-S fairly hard since I got it last summer, 230 gr range ammo and Underwood 200 gr bonded JHP for carry. Installed a set of XS Big Dot 24/7 sights, a favorite system of mine for close quarters work.

I carry with the 5 rd mag and a modified Pearce extension. Reliability has been excellent and I have full confidence in the weapon.

I do switch to a Glock 32 when seasons and/or conditions allow or require.

Nice. They should offer the XDS in .357 SIG for those of you who can find or reload
the ammo.

Not a reality for me unless I want to order online, same for 10mm.

Happy Holidays!

I went from Glock (21) to xdm 45 and I will never buy another Glock. I just found that the xdm does virtually everything better, at least for me.

If they'd build an XDS 4.0 in .357 Sig I'd be first in line for it. I really like the cartridge. I do though order most of my ammo online. Underwood for carry ammo and a few reman distributors for range & plinkin'. I plan to add the .357 to my reloading repertoire this next summer. The cartridge can be hard on a working man's pocketbook.

I've LONG liked the XD/XDm/XDs platforms over Glock by a long shot! 1 of the main features I like is the grip safety. An act of congress or a 20 mule team cannot make it malfunction, Also the grip fits & points better & more naturally for me.

test the 7 round magazine real good before you start relying on it, a few people me included, had feeding problems with the 7 rounder magazine on the XDs.
