    I really like my XDS 45. Extremely good carry weapon.

    It's even better if you get the mag extension from Pearce. Nice to have a spot for the pinky.

    Was lucky enough to snag mine at retail, just walked in and there she was. Finding high end $1+ a round ammo is easy, but range/break in ammo is hard ta get:/ Now I just gotta get her to the range, it's killing had her for a few weeks now

    I use Winchester PDX1's when I carry my XDS. They are a very powerful round. Believe it or not the Hornady Zombie Max rounds are pretty good too. Since they are filled hollow points with that plastic filling stuff they are actually round nosed and feed extremely well in the short barreled XDS. A lot of people balk at the Zombie Max stuff because they think it's a novelty item but next time you see some open the box and check it out. Even the .40 version of it is round nosed and that helps in feeding issues on the .40 too. It's one of the only round nosed .40 rounds that I know of.

    I love it when my XDS eats all of the ammo that my high end Colt MK IV Series 70 won't. It's best not to have an ammo picky carry pistol.

    Looks like good ammo but .70 is a little rough, guess we gotta take what we can get these days. Thx for the tip!

    Glad to hear good reviews. I've been looking at this gun for concealed carry. I'm a big guy so I think I may go with the mag extension

    Local gun shop has one for around $520. Is that a little high? Seem like they were around. $420 before
