    I have a new carry favorite, 45acp XDs!

    After reading a lot about this little sucker, I was sold but they are impossible to find around my area, heck, Armslist had one for $800! Last night I received a call from one of my coworkers urging me to go to the PX on base because they had 3 in stock! I made it to the store with 5 minutes to spare until close time and headed to the guns section where I found they only had two left, and it only took me 20 minutes to get there! I picked this baby up in a hurry. Now to the range to give it a run!

    These are pretty good pistols. I'm sure you will find it a good buy.

    Looks like a fine carry gun. Let us know how it runs.

    From the specs, it is about the exact same size as a Glock 26/27 - though a hair thinner. It also lists as being heavier (I'm assuming the weight listed is unloaded). Yet it carries only 6 rounds, vs 11 for the G26 (9mm) and 10 for the G27 (.40).

    I understand the allure of this gun for the .45 crowd (I have a G30 so spare me) but IMHO there are better choices out there. YMMV.

    Great choice. I have mine for a month and it is super gun. It has replaced my pm9 Kahr as my primary carry gun.

    To each its own, I wouldn't pay for a glock even with your money!

    If I have to shoot 7 people, I am in the wrong place and I tend to avoid wrong places. No different than a revolver but I have a few choices of bugs I carry.

    I have one and think its a good choice. I bought mine about the time I decided to start putting emphasis on CCing a full sized gun (sig 229).
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
