    Question....how is it banging 150 through that thing? I'd have guessed that you'd be getting kind of recoil sensitive after awhile.

    Awesome pistol. Actually carrying mine today, nice pistol. I agree it's very accurate for such a small barrel. Kicks like a angry mule but then again it's a .45ACP. I consider it one of my best carry guns. Congrats on the purchase, enjoy.

    I noticed the same thing. I've been limiting myself to 50 rounds per session to lessen the pain. It seems the aggressive undercut of the trigger guard seems to beat up on that digit. But that undercut is exactly what I like most about the grip. It allows me a full three-finger grip that I wasn't able to get on other "pocket" pistols. Congratulations on a great purchase.

    I was heavily considering purchasing an XDS. They seem like very nice weapons.

    Also, nice to know it feeds swc handloads, too. I plan on learning hand loading as soon as finances (and availability of components) allow.

    The XDS is a wonderful carry gun, very accurate. I have added Talon Grips to mine and the recoil is much easier to take. They really blunt the edges of the XDS grip.
