I ended up going a iwb from Black hawk that was for the XD/XDm compact that fit my XDs nicely.

I love the way my XDs disappears when wearing it. Sometimes I forget I have it at all.

Has anyone tried the 7rd mags for it yet? I was going to get some but figured if I was going to carry a 7rd mag I might as well carry my 1911.

Since I've been talking about getting a Milt Sparks VersaMax-2 for my XDS I figured I would share a couple of pics of it since it finally came in today. I got mine in horsehide with shark skin trim. Horse is more moisture resistant than cowhide. Since it gets pretty hot and humid here in Oklahoma in the summer (100+ with 90-100% humidity) I wanted something that wouldn't sponge up sweat. This also fits the 9MM XDS as well since they are exactly the same dimensions. This is the best IWB holster out there, but that's just my opinion.

You can also see what the XDS looks like with the pinky extensions installed.

My .45 XDs has been flawless from day one. Over 1500 rounds & not a single issue. It has earned a spot as my EDC-w/a N2 Tactical holster, it is amazingly comfortable. Downside of the holster is they r not the fastest draw.
- got the 9mm XDs & had FTE & FTF issues galore during the first 300-400 rounds. Did a detail cleaning & it never missed a beat again. Still leery about staking my life on the 9mm, I ran a 1000 rounds through it & it never missed another best!! As soon as the XS big dot sights r installed, will swap it out for the .45 as my EDC.

I bought 2 XDs 9mm in June. 300+ rounds through each without a hiccup

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!
A coworker said he was trained with a rifle similarly. Hand the weapon to the instructor behind you and he loads or doesn't load a round and hands the weapon back. He said this went on for a while until he got a consistent proper trigger squeeze every time.

same grip that is firm enough for all my other semi-autos is not firm enough for the XDS. need to choke the snot out of this lil' girl. never been accused of being a limp wrister but this one requires more focus from the shooter. that being said, she is also a very accurate and reliable weapon as long as I do my part. very happy with the pistol.

I did a quick summation of my XDs45 post-recall impressions and put them on my site. Overall, thumbs up, but the increase in trigger pull weight is not welcomed.

I got my xds back in Monday, it ran fine. If I had not been told about the trigger pull I wouldn't have noticed but it didn't bother me any.
