    Bought my first ever springfield xds and now wondering why I didn't buy one sooner! Traded in my glock 26, 19, and 23 for HKs. I might get an xdm in .45 in a few months.

    The xds is more accurate. I just bought a holster from deep concealment. The xds is now my primary conceal pistol. I also carry my hk p2000 under a big jacket.

    Accuracy for one. They are (to me) a far better home-defense pistol. More weight= less recoil plus a great club to smack an intruger over the noggin with. Second, CZ 75 prices are soaring and not just because of the craze of late. The 75C I purchased new two years ago is selling for $150 more used than what I paid for it new then. Tell you what, if you still feel the trade/sell urge PM me with what you may want for your CZ. If I were you, I would wait for this craze to subside, then if I still wanted a XD, I would go lay me one away and keep my CZ. Just about every gun I have sold or traded to get another gun I have regretted. Only a couple lemons I had are the exception. XDs are decent guns; but not worth trading a good gun to get a decent gun.

    Grip safety is not needed and dumb looking feature....jut my two cents.

    I bought my 4" model during the dark days of the ban. It has been excellent. Like it so much I bought a 3" model. Same as it's bigger brother. For me their is no reason to go with the XDM. The standard model does everything I need it to.

    I thought so too until I got my mitts on the XDm with the small sized backstrap installed. For me it made a world of difference over the stock size.

    I think they are real nice I like the (m) line even better than the "stock" XD's. I prefer them over Glocks but not over the M&P line. well maybe the XD(S) as M&P has the shield in 9mm but I dont think(i could have missed it) they dont have a slimline .45 like Glock or XD). But if offered id love a XD(m) compact in 9mm or .45 ACP.

    oh think I like most about them is the grip safety

    I bought an XD40 when they were first put out. I wouldn't feed......ball, HPs, anything. The mags were changed, the gun was checked closely, and we couldn't figure out why it wouldn't feed. Traded it, and haven't been back there since.

    Don't want another....
