I've still yet to see in person an XDs or a Shield.
Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
I may get an XDs. Its the only small polymer single stack .45 I have considered buying, it looks like they finally got it right with reliability and reasonable accuracy.
Rack the slide more forcefully.
Take a drive up here to Mountain Home sometime and I'll show you around our local shops...
What other ones were you considering?
Wow... I feel stupid now, haha... just tested it with my 230 Gr. Hydra-shoks and at first it wouldn't eject, then i really racked it hard and out it came! Thanks man, I feel better now!
Glad I could help...
As for comparison pics, I can contribute this:
Here are some pictures comparing it size-wise to a Kahr CM9 and a Glock 30SF (using 9 round magazine).
With regard to holsters... I submit this:
I picked up two Garrett Industries holsters for the XD-S. First is a Silent Thunder Fusion, a half leather, half leather-lined-kydex IWB holster. It is EXTREMELY comfortable, easy on/off, and conceals the XD-S like it's not even there. I have this same rig for my Glock 30, and I knew it was a good one, and this holster proved no different.
Second, is a Silent Thunder STX w/leather loops. This is a leather lined kydex OWB rig that snaps on/off to your belt with the included leather loops. It is comfortable and easy to carry, conceals relatively well for an OWB, and the gun slides in/out perfectly and quietly.
Congrats! It is one of my favorite carry pistols, and has been a lot of fun to practice with. Cantt wait for the 9x19 model to be released!
want one, hopefully soon
Anyone have a source for the 7 round mags ?
I ordered directly from SA.
I was hoping there might be an aftermarket source that would be cheaper...
Doubt there will be any for a while. Have you checked with MecGar?
Me too brother, but I couldn't find any anywhere
Guess I'll just have to pony up the $40 for one from S/A.How do you like the feel of the extended grip ? I can just barely squeeze my pinky onto mine with the 5 rounder.I found that I shoot it better with my pinky under the grip though.I really want to try the 7 rounder,just to see how it shoots with a full grip.
I haven't received mine yet. I just ordered the other day.
I agree about wrapping the pinky under with the 5 rounder. even though I can squeeze mine on there if I want.
Pierce makes a pinky extension, but it looked really long, but maybe it wouldn't be that bad if you filled/cut it down to just be like a 1/4" longer than the stock mag's baseplate, b/c that's all you really need I bet.
