I picked up my all black XDS the other day and finally got to shoot it yesterday. First shot at 20 feet - bullseye - next four shots in a half dollar sized hole. I was so excited that the next mag first shot . . . DANG I threw a flyer 4 inches low. Simmer down - breathe - ah back in the bullseye for 24 out of 25. Roll out to 35 feet and head shots all the way on a B-29B target - opening up to a 3-4 inch group. OK for a defensive gun that is new to me (not quite like my Sig 220 which I can hold much tighter groups). Back to social distances (20 feet) and double taps - low ready start with the first shot CM with around a 5 inch group and every second shot low around 5-6 inches low. I'm guessing that the gun is so light that and the recoil being very manageable that I have overcompensated and dropped every follow up shot. More practice needed. 75 rounds shot with an uncleaned gun straight from the box. I did shoot one round purposely with a light grip just to see what it would do and I got a light strike on the primer. Anyhow I have carried in a Blackhawk/Uncle Mikes IWB cheapie holster for several days to get the feel of it and it's nice. I also bought a Blackhawk Askins style compact leather designed for the M&P (size 28) which fits perfectly. So far I'm lovin' this gun!

Don't have a 36, but could do an XDS vs G30 if that would help?

Just put in "XDS G36" in Google images and there are a few comparison shots.

Only comparison shots I have are of my XDS and formerly owned 9mm Shield. They're pretty much identical.

XDs is shorter in length than the G36. XDs is very nearly same size as the G26 - but slightly thinner.

I use the same retention leather holster for both g26 and XDs .45acp.

Congratulations, I have the Bi tone XDS and with about 350 rounds through it so far, it has been flawless.

I just installed the mag extensions from Pearce Grips last week and it makes the XDS even nicer to shoot. I kept a couple mags without them for pocket carry.

Congrats on the new weapon! I love mine as well. It's the closest to the Glock trigger I've found, plus it's in a very small 45ACP package. Makes full size weapons feel very sluggish returning to battery. If you don't know what I mean, next time out try shooting it then picking up a G21 and firing a few. Wow.

There is a little bit more felt recoil for the XDS but the XDS is smaller and lighter than the 36.
Still very manageable. I have shoot 300 rounds in one session with mine without any issues.

I would have to agree with that,having shot mine next to my full size 1911.

I just came back in from "test firing" the wife's XDs for her. I am not easily impressed but this gun delivers. I was only shooting at 10 yds in deference to the guns purpose. It made tight cluster in the x ring of a 12 " "shoot and see" target. that x ring is 3"across. Given its size I was impressed.

It was just 2 hands upright, "let's see if it works" shooting

I have owned a few 36's over the years and always sold them. I didnt like how it shot, even though my g30sf is my fav to shoot. But I picked up a XDs today and took it to the range...... After only 120 rounds, it is now a keeper! To me it was less recoil and way less muzzle flip than the g36. Felt as good or better than the Walther PPS 9mm!

Slimmer and lighter than a g26 or 27. Also slimmer than a g36. Very "Glock" like too. Internals of the slide look very similar. Maybe Glock's patents ran out?? Who knows.

Very happy with it. Mine is bi-tone with a test fire date of 7-14-2012. Weighs in at 715g with 5 rounds of 230 gr ammo.

My groups were not as good as some others have said, but I just switched to the thumbs forward grip and am still learning. Good groups were about 1-2 inches at 7 yards. But when I was shooting faster I was dropping a bunch at least 6 inches low.

Hope that helps people. And congrats to the OP! This thread is one o the reasons I decided to try the XDs.

I picked up my XDs last week and I like it...I sold my Shield since I'm a fan of 45ACP. I felt the recoil had some zip due to size of pistol, but not punishing.

Do any of you have a hard time un-chambering a round that isn't fired? seems like the ejection port isn't large enough to eject a live round. I don't normally load and unload my carry guns anymore, but what about trying to clear jam or something later? seems like it would be hard to clear, unless there is another trick to it?
