Also I read an article in Guns &Ammo where they shot the XDS in both 45 and 9. The author shot and reviewed the 45 when it came out last year and he liked it. He then did a review when the 9mm version was released. The author liked the 9 a lot better in terms of recoil and trigger pull. Not sure why the trigger pull was different from one caliber to the other but he had nothing but good things to say about the 9mm version.
Thanks for the input fellow members
I have not handled a xds yet,i've seen and read a lot of favorable reviews about both the 45acp and 9mm.
Thanks again for the replies.
