Purchased another XDs...

...this one a 3.3 45 ACP to add to my edc, my XDs 4.0 45 ACP. I sold a gun in my collection to fund this one. I really dig the 6 round mag that came with it. It was a good price as it's the essential package, no holster or third mag, etc. I have plenty of 7 and 5 round mags. I was going to buy another 4.0 but my LGS didn't have one and this one for $529 was a good price I think.

I really like my XDs 3.3 45. If I were to buy another XDs, I think it would be the 4" 9mm. The 45's shoot great, but they do kick. I'd bet the 9mm's are really smooth.

Shot 280 flawless rounds today, the 4.0 being a bit more controllable. Though I like heavier rounds, especially 230gr in 45 ACP but the TAC-XPD in 185gr +p is really controllable. Though I'm not sure how well the lighter round would penetrate form a 3.3" barrel.

Have a 4" 9mm and it is indeed really smooth.

The XDs is a nice little package and good shooting gun, congrats. I've been thinking about getting a 4.0 in 45, there's some type of promotion beginning on the 20th.

I really like my 4.0, it has been a great carry gun.

Congrats. I love my XDs.

I have 5 and 7 rounders. Didn't realize they had 6 round mags now.

The XDS is the single stack example Glock should have followed. The extended mags/grip sleeves are very complimentary to the pistols themselves. The Glock 36 confounds me. They make a two finger grip with an extended magazine which holds only 6 rounds. No extended magazines are offered and Pearce discontinued the +1 extensions. Glock has allowed this model to languish with revolver like capacity. This model should have had a three finger grip from the start with at least seven rounds flush mags and a 10 round extended mag like Sig does with the P220 and P239. And now what do we have? 6 +1 .380 and 9mm G42/G43 and no extended mags yet again.
