    I shot both of these for the 1st time today. The Shield was so much nicer! Both were very accurate but the XDs has quite a kick! So much so that it hurt to shoot 5 rds through it. I put a total of 25 through both. Recoil on the Shield was not much worse than my XD9. I did this test to determine which one to buy for my CCL. It's hands down the shield, now to get on a waiting list!

    Yep, the Shields are pretty awesome. At last summer's qualification I actually shot a better score during tactical drills with the Shield than I did with the M&P. That says a lot.

    Springfield will be out with their 9mm XDs soon which will be more comparable. I have both and like both but the XDs in 45 definately lets you know it's a 45. I'm really looking forward to the XDs in 9mm.
