XDs on duty

You are gonna love it!!!! I puchased mine about 6 months ago. Qualifying with it is no problem. I have been carrying it to work every day. I would advise you to invest in a couple of 7 round mags, it makes the grip a little longer and more comfortable. The accuracy and dependability ( with any brand of 45 ammo ) shocked me. Springfield scored BIG with this one. The only down side that I can see is the fact that there are not alot of OWB holsters available yet.

Well I was surprised because I won the auction Wednesday morning , paid around 6pm and it arrived at the gun range on Friday from Pennsylvania . I we t and shot it today and it was amazing. Recoil was nothing. It was extremely accurate. Not sure if I wanna qualify with it or my xd 40. But I'm in love. My chl course is Saturday.

The recoil(or lack of) surprised me as well, mine is my everyday carry and it sits perfect in my cheap walmart iwb holster, I looked at many more expensive holster but the setup and price on the Blackhawk wallyworld special was just right(after slight mods, no longer ambidextrous)

Look around for some of the Pearce grip extensions. Adds just enough to get your pinky on the grip. It makes a world of difference. I'm surprised that Springfield doesn't ship a pair of them in the kit.

Took me an hour but I found two extended mags $29 each and two Pearce grip extenders!
Luckily my local gun shops carry the extended mags. The Pearce pinky extensions were a little harder to find. I scored 4 of them at our last gun show. It was a decent sized show with about 300 vendors and only one had them. Paid $8 or $9 each for them. Two for me and two for a friend. Best accessories I've bought for my XDS yet, and under $20.
