    I did a search and didn't see anything for a couple of years back. Anyone have one/shot one? I have pretty big hands but the one I held felt pretty good. I'm looking for a possible different CC and I like how thin it is compared to my M&P 9c.

    Do you carry the .45 concealed and how long is the barrel? 5 or 3.3?

    My daughter has an XDS in 9mm and I shoot it pretty well, but don't like the "feel" of it as much as my M&P Shield in 9mm. I carry that Shield most days and really like how well I can hide it... and it shoots really well for a small frame. I have large hands as well and with the extended mag I can wrap around it comfortably... [2c]

    I carry the XDS45 with the extended mag. Also use it to knock out Tree Rats.

    Has a Crimson Trace too.

    I've carried most of my life and I gotta say this one fits me to a T.

    XDM .45 Here, I only use this when running my hog trap, Can't comment on the 9 or 40, However I have not heard anything bad about them, Rent one and shoot it before you buy.

    My friend is a gun smith and works on a lot of them. He tells people to stay away from them. They do feel cheap to me. I guess you have to keep in mind the people that work on them mostly see the ones that need to be fixed.
