Could you guys shed some light on this so I can make a good decision? Any experiences and reviews of the XDs are more than welcome. Thank you very much guys!
Just to clarify I'm talking about the XDs 3.3 45cal
Mine does fine with cheap Winchester White box. You might want to think about picking it up in 9mm. You read that this gun is very manageable for its size, but it is very small for such a large caliber and IMO the alligator grip is not at all comfortable. I have a Shield ordered and if I ever get it may sell my XDS. That said, the XDS is a fine gun. Good luck finding one, not that easy even when the shelves were stocked.
