    Thought it would be nice to have a place for XDs owners such as myself to report on their personal experience w the XDs. So far mine has been nothing but flawless, it's fired the whole big two types of ammo I've fed it, Armscor 230fmj and Hornady Critical Defence 185jhp.

    Flawless is the word for it. I always test 6-12 manufacturers ammo in each gun and the XD is one of the only ones that had no FTF, FTE or misfires. All firearms have a "favorite" load, bullet weight or brand it likes better, but the XD is boring in how well it handles everything.

    My XDs has been working flawlessly as well. Eats everything I've thrown at it.

    MY XD-S has been 100% except for a range trip where I had a reduced power striker spring (PRP spring kit....not worth it). It even digested some 35+ year old reloads with a 185 gr SWC bullet and 3.5 gr of Bullseye. It is the 4th XD I have purchased and I am very satisfied with its performance.

    My XD-S .45ACP review.

    Love my xds 45! It fires great and is very accurate. I'm glad I was able to find this at my lgs, they only had 2 left at the time. Easy to carry too!

    So far I'm happy with it. Only put 200rds through it and it seems to be a good gun choice! Now I just need a holster!

    No issues with mine ,I ran about 75 rds thru it last night . My other .45 is a Kahr PM 45 3.5" barrel it does not have the recoil like the XDS , its been magnaported which Im sure helps a little bit but its not even close to the recoil of the XDS and the flash out of the end of it is WOW . Its a good shooter I had 3"-4" groupings @ 10 yards with it which isnt bad for the first time I picked it up . Anyone elses have that incredible flash out of the end of it ? I didnt notice it at first and the recoil didnt seem as extreme as it did around the last half of the first box . I honestly thought maybe I had some hot ammo in there , the second box was Blazer alum cased FMJs

    Mine jammed once when a friend was shooting it ,limp wristing I suspect, I on the other hand have not had a single problem with it, I love the way it shoots. Have the pinky extensions from Pearce for the 5 rd mag and just got the 7 rd mag from schedules. I love this gun

    XD-S horizontal mag holder

    I got this MagHolder a few days ago and have been totally satisfied with it. It is comfortable to wear....to the point it you don't even notice it. If you wish, you can browse my MagHolder product review for more details.

    I have a XDM-9 3.8, XDM-45 4.5 and XD45 4" Service. All 3 shoot very well. I have a XDM-40 5.25 on the way. I will see how that shoots soon.
    Does anyone know if the XD45 5" Tactical comes with a thumb safety on it?
