    XD-S 9mm First Time Out

    Bought a Springfield Armory XD-S 9mm on Tuesday (as per previous posts). Finally got time to test fire it. Haven't shot a pistol in 20+ years (all those were .22s).

    I had one box of Blazers aluminum ammo. Shot 36 times. Not really qualified to give a range report, it's the only gun I own. ha ha. I was surprised how accurate the gun was. I was shooting at 7-10 BIG paces (I'm 6'1"). I was a really crude outdoor range, just me and the mosquitos. Learned that I need better hearing protection... shoot a little LOW and to the LEFT (my guess trigger pull on my part).

    The gun worked flawlessly. No Issues except a really stiff slide release lever. Had a lot of fun too.

    Really wanting the xds in 9mm. 9mm is my favorite round, I love my xds chambered in .45, only makes since I should get the 9. Congrats on the purchase!

    The positive reviews I keep reading on the new XDs 9 makes me feel confident I made a good choice in an easy to conceal 9mm! I'm getting mine out of layaway hopefully tomorrow. It also seems to be an extremely hot seller.

    I dunno. The XDs empty weighs more than an empty baby Glock. Yes, it is thinner, but I cannot understand why it is such a porker for what it is.

    Sounds and looks like you did a good job! Well Done! If you like it, please keep shooting it to get familiar and better!

    Do you plan to carry it?

    All polymer Springfields are heavy for some unknown reason. Compared to Glocks or even Rugers, XD pistols feel like boat anchors. I sold off all my SA's for that reason plus their crazy high bore axis. Haven't regretted that decision at all.

    The XDs in 9mm is an excellent pistol and I prefer it to my XDs in 45.

    Great choice and pretty good shooting for not having fired a handgun in years!
