    An excellent informative video.
    Thanks for posting.
    I'm waiting for it to come out in 9mm for the extra round or two...as you noted.

    Great Vid. I shot one a couple of weeks ago. I was planning on buying an XD9SC but now I'm rethinking.

    I have a couple questions I hope you can answer:

    1.) Is this "better" for CCW vs. the XDm .45 or is it just different? To me, the XDm is a little bigger, but it holds a few more rounds which may or may not make a difference.
    2.) Is this hard to find? I was at the local range and they just got one in and form one of the comments above I bet it's gone before I could even get back if I decided this was what I wanted.

    Thanks.

    I have an XDM 9C and I can't carry it like I can the XD-S, huge difference and I much prefer it (XD-S) for carry.

    I've found availability hit and miss, sometimes they sit for a week others they are sold before they hit the display.

    Until you have handled one its difficult to imagine how much sleeker the XDs is than an XD or XDM compact.

    Nice review. Have to agree about the grip safety. In a struggle, where you might not have a perfect grip, I would not want something keeping the gun from firing. IMHO, that "feature" is a war-stopper.

    My other concern with this gun is the weight. For what it is, it is on the heavy side. If you're going to carry a gun with only 5-6 shots, I'd lean toward the lighter weight and simplicity of a revolver in .38. JMHO, YMMV.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I actually held the XD-S today. Very nice. Haven't held a XDm yet though.

    If I didn't already have a S&W M&P Shield 9 I'd give this a serious look. I've heard nothing but positive comments and it appears to have managable recoil.

    I didn't notice when I held it, but yah, not sure that's the best to have on a CCW when you never knwo how you may have to use it...

    As for the Shield 9 comment, thanks for the heads up, but I already have an SR9c, so I was looking for something a little bigger.

    Gotta call you guys out on the grip safety.

    I have an XD and a 1911- It's almost impossible to hold either gun securely WITHOUT depressing the grip safety.

    FYI Literally HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of people have shot 1911s over the last hundred years with no difficulty.
