    I just bought this gun today and Springfield actually makes a 7 round magazine for this gun
    with 2 grip extenders as well. I picked one up
    with the gun but of course it makes it harder
    to conceal if you carry the gun.

    I'd have to get the extension my hands were way to big for the pistol. It wasn't comfortable at all and how much did you pay for it?

    I paid 540. 00 for it and it is going to be my EDC.
    Now having said that I have quite an extensive
    collection of carry guns in 357 9mm 40 caliber and other 45s but in my opinion this XDs is the
    perfect blend of stopping power and size given the fact I can carry a back up mag with 7 rounds
    as well as the 5 plus 1 in the gun itself.

    For the record I also have the subcompact 9 and
    subcompact 40 as well as the 3.8 compact XDm
    in 45 as well. These are great guns as well. I like
    them better than my Glocks in same size and
    caliber.

    I have a Pearce Grip Extension on my XD Subcompact .40 and 9mm. I love them. Think I only paid about $10 for them.

    post a range report.

    I took the XDS to the range yesterday and put
    250 rounds through it. I shot round nose ammo and hollow point ammo from Federal , Blazer and
    Hornady's critical defense ammo as well. The gun shot flawlessly and was right on the money
    as far as accuracy. The recoil was no greater than shooting my Glock 26 ! This gun is awesome
    and is going to be my EDC gun. Anyone looking for an awesome 45 in a concealable package this is your baby!!!'
