    Newb With XDs


    Just decided upon an XDs despite the hub-buib about the recall. Seems like SA has sorted it out and think I have a dependable firearm.

    I was hard pressed to decide between the XDs, XDm and Ruger SR9 and SR9c. I was sure I'd like the SR9 and was ready to pull the trigger (oh hey that's a pun!) on the deal but upon a side by side found the XDs felt and seemed more solid. Smaller yet heftier. Much smoother and just feels better. The SR9 I toyed with had loose pins that were already working themselves out. Not really a big deal BUT the XDs is rock solid in comparison. Plastic guide rod on the SR9 and nice metal on XDs.

    I'm just looking for a field/ranch pistol to get re-aquainted with firearms. Will be getting a CCW, I'm in Texas, and while I don't intend on being a full time CC like the option of doing so.

    So that's me….

    Any advice re: accessories, ammo etc?

    Hello, and welcome to the forum. I've heard a lot of good things about that XDs.

    I bought an XD45 several months ago. It's my first SA handgun.

    I don't know enough about the SA in order to recommend any accessories for your XDs. Ammo is pretty much a personal choice.

    One thing I can recommend is............practice, practice, and some more practice.

    Good luck and enjoy!!

    For a small pistol like the XDs I prefer to use an ITB crossdraw holster. I, also, like to carry a dual magazine pouch for those extra magazines (which you always should have on hand for such a small pistol).

    I just bought an XDS .45 duo tone, I haven't fired it yet but so far it seems like a good quality pistol. I bought it because it's a nice slim, compact .45 even if it only holds 5+1 rounds. It compliments my EDC Glock G30. Besides, I love the looks of it, probably my real reason for buying it.
