The decision should be based on requirements. If you are planning to carry a lot and shoot a little, the XDS is superb! If you're an everyday shooter AND carry a lot, then the XDMC would be better. I have found that I will often put the XDS in the waist band with a PJ Holster quicker than my Glock 19, which is by far, my more favorite gun. I do keep the XDMC by the bedside for bumps in the night due to higher round count and subsonic rounds for in the house shooting. However, I can not remember the last time I carried it concealed.
