    Are you refering to the XDm 45, or the XDS 45?
    I believe both are in store now, if you can find one (XDs 45)?

    I'm hoping they have, or will be coming out with a single stack XDm .45

    How would a single stack XDM differ from a XDS?

    Barrel length/overall length/sight radius?
    Overall height?
    Weight?

    At any rate, I've become *extremely* interested in the XDS .45, but would like to fire one before making the decision to purchase/not purchase. On YouTube CandRreviews has a couple of reviews (both benchtop and a couple of range reviews comparing the XDS to the Kimber UltraCarry II, and some other 9 mm, if I recall correctly).

    I really like the beavertail safety as I have concerns about accidental discharge during reholstering. I know the probability is low, especially if you are careful, but concealed carry, IMHO, is all about preparing for low probability incidents. With the beavertail safety, all you have to do is make sure that you do not have this depressed during reholster. By contrast to the beavertail safety, which would require pressure in the opposite direction than the direction the gun is moving during reholster, the trigger 'safety' on my current carry pistol (Walther PPQ) could easily be depressed by a fold of clothing, and since the trigger pull is pretty light, the risk of an AD, though unlikely, is further from zero than would be the case with a beavertail safety.

    Of course, the beavertail safety will be depressed if one pulls the trigger intentionally, and there is no thumb safety to worry about fumbling with...

    IMHO, this offers the perfect solution!

    The only thing better could potentially be a 9mm XDs... but I suspect that these will be hard to keep in stock when they finally come out...

    So far very limited numbers and then only released to large well established dealers.

    I purchased an xds 2 weeks ago and it's a great choice for ccw. Shot ~200 rounds thru it without any problems. Shot to point of aim to 10 yards, as far as I shot. Replaces my cw40 for cow. I did order the 7 rd magazine.
