Thanks for the tip I just got done shooting and I still cannot shoot a pie pan from roughly 20 yards. I had to shoot it at about 10 yards just hoping the fun is not defective out of the box!

I bought an XDS 45 and the first time I shot it was bad. It was shooting bad low and as much as I wanted to blame the gun I figured out it wasn't the problem. If I took my time and did my part the gun would do it's. After 3 or 4 trips out it started to come to me and I wouldn't trade it for anything now.

Just takes practice. You might be a little gun shy. Have a friend load your mags and randomly put in some snap caps. This will let you see how bad you flench when you shoot.

I am really getting so mad I really think its defective I am going to get a person to shoot it that I know if a great shot and see if he can hit with it if he can't then I don't know what to think. Thanks for the tip.

Shoot at 5...then 7...figure out your fundamentals...I didn't go past 7 yards till I got my fundamentals down and it may take time but it is time well spent...squeeze and hold your trigger
