My daughter has an XDm in .45 ACP. Shoots great, feels terrific in the hand and pretty damn good value. The grip on the original XD is a bit different, so I'm not sure about those, and my daughter's gun is a 4.5" version. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Just got back from K-5 and a XDs came with me, will be the wifes Xmas present to go along with her Kimber ultra. Cant believe how small this thing is, 1 in wide holds 5+ 1 in the chamber, also got a box of 45 Zombie ammo for work cause we patrol the graveyard in New Haven, the boss will get a chuckle out of this!! Going to BSR tomorrow to try it out, might have to get another . :D :D

Shot my friends full size 40 and it felt awesome.
Ergonomics and all.

Ive been wanting one for a while. Me thinks to get a sub or compact in 9mm or 40 caliber.

With christmas around the corner im gonna have to silently suffer and wait.

The xds was not too bad for pocket carry. It did not like some ammunition like critical defense. It was a pretty soft shooting pistol for the size a lot nicer to shoot than a rohrbaugh.

I shot a buddy's fullsized .40 and I have a 5.25 in .45. Both are great; I like the feel of the grip and they shoot well. The .40 recoiled like a 9mm .
