Well, I'm sold on the XDs. I went and had a proper coonfingering of the unit. Talked to 3 owners at length and there has only been one reported issue with a single firearm. It points perfect for me and it's a proper carry piece. I'm going to get one.

Not at all. Sight height is shorter. Stroke is super short, trigger is better, Points perfect for me. Almost bought one today.

Amazing amount. I'm really impressed with the thing, and I'm a skeptic at heart.

I'd really have to give it a rundown. After shooting XD (.45 and a .40) as well as an XDm in 9mm, I swore I'd never own an XD as long as they are like that.

Same here. I'm not an XD fan at all, this is a total redesign.
