    Sold my Shield yesterday.Decided to change up to a .45 for my EDC.Stopped by my LGS to see what he had.There were a lot of Glocks, a few Sigs,M&P's..:yawn:.Then, I saw it...a bi-tone XDs.I checked it out and was really impressed with it overall.So...I bought it.Brought my range bag with me when I picked it up,then headed to the range.It was dry so I greased the slide rails and loaded it up for a quick test run.Only had 50 rounds of ball ammo.I shot a couple mags of my carry ammo, GD 230gr,to make sure it would feed.It functioned perfectly.Very accurate and mild recoil.Hope to get more ammo soon and break it in.So far, I really like it.

    I've been very pleased with mine. I've put about 200 rounds of FMJ through it as well as about 20 of my carry ammo. No hiccups whatsoever.

    I'll be interested to see the responses to this question.

    I prefer Kydex OWB paddle holsters for concealed carry, specifically the Comp-Tac one. I've been asking them for months to make one for the XD-S but they keep saying that there's not enough interest. :steamed:

    mini 45s are cool, getting one to work right out of the box is better.
