    I'm looking to get my first hand gun and I am really looking at the xds. Anyone have any recomendations as to which type of xd I should look into?

    Depends on what you want, familiarity with calipers. What size gun are you looking for? I have shot and handled the service .45 full size. Very accurate and a pleasure to shoot. Need more details about the main purpose of the handgun.

    Assuming that is you in the avatar, thank you for your service. Stop by the Introduction section when you get a chance.

    Are you looking for a CC piece, a general use gun or a range gun.

    XD's are available for all uses. We will need more info to help make the call.

    I have an XD 45, long trigger but it shoots good.

    the XD and XDm platform is a very good series of pistols with models that will suit just about any need or wants person has. i have the XDm40 which is a fantastic pistol.

    As has been said above, really need to know what you're going to use it for to make a good suggestion. I have an XDm 4.5" 9mm and I love it dearly. Great general use gun. I would love to get the XDs, .45 subcompact that is quite nice. And I've heard the XDm 5.25" is great for target shooting. All around a great line of guns...you won't be disappointed whichever one you go with, just need to narrow it down to the right one for your needs.

    Good luck!

    Thank you all for the suggestions. As for specifications, I'd like to use it as a secondary to a ar-15 and as a back up on hunting trips.

    I have an XDm in .40 and love it. As a backup, full frame or the XDm 3.8 would be sufficient. Just pick your caliber.

    I like the .40 more than the 9mm personally.

    i have owned many different pistols in 40 caliber over the years, and i can say with all honesty, my XDm40 is by far my favorite of all of them. very easy to control, decent accuracy, and has the best trigger IMO.

    When I shot the xd I was shooting a little high left but with a m9 I'm getting center mass all day. What could I be doing wrong ?

    Honestly I love the long trigger pull as well. I feel more comfortable with it.

    Take your choice on the XD's.

    I like the .45 for the usual reasons. However I do have an XD9 that I am pretty impressed with.

    If that is you in your avatar...thank you for your service to our country.

    Mine is the standard XD9 double stack. I have been considering an XD 45 but have been hoping to find a used one, not many around it seems.

    If I were looking at a very concealable 9 I would get the KelTech PF9. Compact, reliable and best of all....inexpensive.
