    Also just read my first negative report on the gun... not the gun itself, but the aftermath of shooting it for 100 rounds - guy took a pretty good beating, blisters and all.

    The negative review is a bit overstated. I'm a casual shooter... mostly shoot 9mm... and I have not experienced any hand trauma from shooting the XDS. It has noticeably more punch than my XDM 3.8 9mm, but is very manageable.

    I have a small Kahr P45 and that little dawg barks (and bites)---the rough back and lower surfaces of the grip are sharp and annoying---a few minutes with a nailfile fixed that just right---and the best part? Looks totally standard---can barely see removal of sharp edges and even then you must look real close. For just practice, I wear a shooting glove---makes the little beast behave!

    I would love one of these in 9mm so it matches my other carry guns.

    you can tell when he doesn't realy like a particular gun,but he's very subtle about it..just his style

    I agree that an XD/s would be nice in 9mm but I'm still hoping that HSP designs an XDM in 22lr, the M&P22 is killing the striker fired 22lr market..probably because it's the only one that comes from the factory as a 22lr. back to the discussion, HSP is not in the habit of making garbage and springfield isn't normally too big on having their name associated with poor worksmanship so it's natural to assume that with 2 companies reputations on the line that anything they release is going to be decent at worst. however buying a 45 pocke tgun is just begging for a sore shooter afterwards IMHO.

    If he were a country that pertained to gun reviews he would be SWITZERLAND....... Like I said, I like him, but I know what I am going to get when I watch his reviews. He will call every gun "nice" and state the obvious for about 10 minutes. His channel would be all but dead if they guy could not shoot, but fortunately he can shoot and he is a nice guy.

    Wallet or Pocket Holster for XDs.45?

    Has anyone come across either a stock or custom holster for pocket carry?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    It is my understanding that the XDs will come in 9 mm and 40 cal. later this year or early next. Someone can verify that but that is what I had read. I like what I have seen from the 45. Hickock 45 does good reviews and does not really bash anything. Like someone said above he is subtle. However, at 6'8" tall and humongous hands, the guns fit him a bit differently than most of us.
