    Different direction

    New member who has long preferred revolvers and particularly 1911 platform. Recently traded a pocket nine I picked up on a whim for a Springfield XDs and I am extremely pleased with the deal. 100 rounds of fmj and several rounds of Gold Dot +p and found it very pleasant to shoot. Oddly, it fits very well in CBST that I had for the nine. Very happy...

    ...does yours have the thumb safety and, if not, are you wearing the finish off the slide trying to swipe it off?

    Nice trade!

    You already are enjoying your new XDs, so it is a very good deal all around. Good luck with your new XDs!
