I want to be able to rely on this gun because it is accurate and easy to carry. That being said I'm nervous that I want be able to trust it....... Only range time will tell.
Had same problem on XDM a couple drops FP10 fixed it

The only issue I have if you can call it that is mine shoots low and to the left. I wish it had an adjustable rear sight, but since it doesn't I ordered a laser for it.Hopefully problem solved.

Low and left is from jerking the trigger if you are a right handed shooter. Your laser will prove that to you. Have someone watch your laser dot on the target as you shoot.

Thanks, I don't think I'm jerking the trigger but I could be. I'll have someone watch as you suggest. Doesn't seem to be happening when I shoot my other handguns. However the XDS is compact and that could be playing into my grip and trigger pull.

This will help your diagnose your trigger pull issues.

Thanks for the chart buc my shots are falling in the G section mostly. I should get my laser today and then it's off to the targets and some corrective action if need be.

Hope it helps Ron! Ok know it did for me. I use the chart when I get a new pistol so I can adapt to the trigger on each gun. My 1911 triggers are a world apart from my XD-S, and it's even worse on a revolver. This is probably the best teaching tool I was ever given. Once you have your laser and some snap caps you'll be able to work out most of your trigger habits at home away from the range.

Another good training tool is to randomly place a snap cap in your mags when you're at the range and see if you are getting muzzle "dip" when anticipating recoil. I do that with new shooters so they actually see themselves do it. Kind one of those Homer Simpson slap their forehead "Doh!" moments. That's when you tell them to squeeze the trigger and NOT pull it and that when the gun fires it should almost be a surprise when the trigger breaks. That's why I LOVE my 1911's triggers. Super short travel and reset.

Hope it all works out. This chart just gives you a visual on what you're doing and help narrow it down. After you try it out update us on whether or not it helped you.

Have fun, shoot a lot, and stay safe!

Installed the laser and it is a help. Mostly I can see my bad habits better. I am going to try shooting from a rest and see what happens . Buc I do believe I am getting some of that muzzle dip and of course it doesn't take much to throw off a shot with such a short barrel. I am hoping a rest will steady me a bit. The recoil is not uncomfortable to me, I have a 454 Casull that I sometimes shoot. Next to that my XDS is a cap gun.Thanks again.

Hey guys. I was browsing this morning on the ol' interwebs, and I came across the first +1 extension I've found for the xds. I always thought that the 7 rounder was too bulky and took away from concealability but I think I may give this extension a try. Supposedly it's no longer then the Pearce extension. http://www.impactguns.com/impact-guns-1-grip-extension-for-springfield-xds-45-1xds.aspx
