Default Finally got my hands on one

A SA XDS that is. I went by Academy and made my weekly trek to the gun counter to ask if they had gotten any in yet. To my surprise the young lady said yes! I was not at all disappointed when she pulled it out. That little 45 felt great in my hands. They had it for sale at $529. That's a bit less than retail. I really like the way it feels and looks. It's was small enough to conceal easily, and not too heavy. If a 45 was in my future that would be it.

I got one! SA XDS - Same price - was on the waiting list and got one of the first arrivals at my local gun shop.

Shot it this past weekend - to me it shoots like my Glock 26 9mm - recoil is not bad at all. I will pick up some extended mags soon, even though grip is about right for me.

Same overall height as my Sig P238 and about an inch longer. I carry OWB and it is as easy to conceal as the Sig.

Love the gun - highly recommended! Have shot Winchester FMJ and Federal Hydroshock

yep, my local gun shop has one, as well. got to play with it last week. didn't shoot it, but was really impressed with how it felt. l also love how it looks. a mini XDm, sort of. sure is hard to argue with having the 45 in such a concealable size.
