I bought an XDs in 45 ACP (9mm coming out soon). I can pocket carry it very well in a pocket holster. I like the lack of a manual safety. It has been very reliable, accurate and easy to shoot. The trigger is well done and has a very fast reset.

I think the XDs is the best small 45 ACP overall. I consider the Glock 36, but based on comments by some owners, I decided against it. I also considered the Kahr PM45 and it would have been fine too. All three were fine, but the Springfield just called out to me the most.

My current deep concealment gun is a Kahr PM9. It is not a 45 ACP, but it is also an excellent choice for a pocketable pistol.

Anyway, in a small 45 ACP, I really would go with the XDs, however, there are a few good choices out there.

do you guys carry the these with the safety ON or OFF?
You need to see one in person and shoot if possible. It's as small as the current popular 9mms out there and it's holding 5 rounds of 45acp, 7 of 9mm when it hits the shelves.

I had weighed in on the XDM .45 3.8
But - I just bought a new H&K .45c and it seems to be a bit more desirable for my use right now.
I'll know more as time goes by...

Those xds's are a nice package, hard to go wrong. A fullsize model with 8 rounds, would be a hit too.

For me it's a no-brainer, the G30SF hands down.

I owned a XDS for 2 weeks. Not a comfortable gun for me to carry, the aggressive nature of the pistol tore into my slacks and knuckles any time I went into pocket.

So I sold it and went back to carrying my STI Shadow.

1911 in .45 is the ONLY .45 to have.

If you want to carry alot and shoot little take the Xdm. If you want a gun to shoot a lot and carry a lot pick the 30. The Xdm is a good gun. However, it's grip is to short and slim for my hand with multiple shots on multiple targets. Ymmv. The 30 tames the 45 recoil and fills my hand. Additionally , it would make a heck of a blunt force instrument . Loaded or empty.

XDMs 45 has a split-safety-trigger just like Glock's !
Patent must have run out ?
Feels good dry-firing it.
If your use to Glock triggers, than this would be a good pick.
Guys say its reliable, accurate and no muzzle flip.

G36 is lighter, feels better, and only a tad bigger.

G30 or the new G30s has the thin slide.
10 big, bad ass rounds of .45 stopping power.
In a ultra reliable package.

I was looking for both as well, the G30s or XDM. I have a Kimber Ultra CDP2 and was looking for something small with higher capacity in .45. Time for buying 10 round pistols is coming to, a hopefully brief, pause here in NY. Every lgs that I went to basically told me good luck finding an XDM or G30s, thats what brought me here to Glock Talk, researched the G30 and decided to broaden my search to include a G30sf, but, still no luck. I read on here that the Gen4 G30 is the same size frame as the G3 G30sf with no back straps installed and the next day I find a G4 G30, I held it and bought right away, my first Glock. Took it to the range this weekend and I am really happy with it, no regrets. Good luck with your search

I've had my share of 1911's and loved them all, but I'm more about simplicity and functionality these days, and Glock fits that bill for me.

But hey, 1911's are beautiful handguns, and works of art.
