    I have a Kahr CM9 that has been flawless, but the XDs just will NOT leave my mind! 5+1 of .45ACP versus 6+1 of 9mm and reloads of the same size (7rds) and I do love Springfields, whereas Kahr has a somewhat iffy reputation.

    While I'm not a huge believer in any one caliber (I carry 9mm, .38 and .357 handguns) but it is hard to argue when the capacity is so close and you're looking at a 230gr bullet versus a 124gr bullet...well...

    I put 25 rounds down range with an XDs .45 and it was, by far, the most painful gun I tried. I didn't even want to put all 25 shots through it due to the harsh recoil.

    Glad you enjoy your purchase though!

    Same thought process for me. Traded a Sig P238 for the XD-s. Couldn't be more pleased with my decision, as well. C'mon, 45ACP4ever, you know you want one...All the cool people are getting 'em (and your name and all...)

    The fact that "felt" recoil is so subjective is sometimes forgotten. It's good to get feedback both positive and negative from different people. As I've been gaining shooting experience over the last year, I've found that what is "soft shooting" for one is "kicks like a mule" to others. I, for example, dislike the kick of .380 pocket pistols and .40S&W in general. But something about the recoil of .45ACP definitely agrees with me (except the price, lol).

    Recoil is harsh but I tend to not think about it because I hit whatever I point this gun at. For its size it is amazingly accurate
