it also seems they did away with the striker indicator, not that that's a huge deal for me. It retains the round-in-chamber indicator though. While I'd much prefer to have a physical hammer with decocker (see: HK USP45C :fap, it's just not in my price range right now. Buying a damn house is bleeding me of all my moneys

You haven't had a chance to fire the XDs yet have you? And War, that's exactly why I'm leaning towards the XDs, the P250 will print a whole lot more being that it's a pretty solid mid-frame gun. Meister, I may take you up on your Kydex guy if I bring it home

I'm a big boy so it didn't print on me, neither does the P220 I carry now. When I get the XDs it will be for weight savings add the fact that it's better balanced than the regular xd models. The xdsc i had was top heavy.

definetly agree with you, the original XD's always felt real damn top heavy to me, even loaded.

I think this new XDs, in the .45 is 5+1? Hence why I'm already poking around for mag holsters lol.

Most engagements are settled within the first 3 shots. My only holdup on the XDs is the fact that I already have a deep conceal weapon and the next step up is 10+1 of 10mm. The glock 29 is heavier and slightly larger, but requires no holster, so it's manageable.

I read alot of great stuff about those crossbreed supertucks; pretty sure that'll be what I go with. I'd also probably go straight for the 7 round mags, just to extend the grip a bit.

Meister, I fully understand about engagements, however I want larger mags for target shooting mostly and the extended grip. Less time reloading, more time shooting :hammer

Edit: 10+1 is the biggest I can go with any firearm in my commie-liberal loving state. I'd much rather have the ability to carry a fully auto glock with a drum mag, even if it means concealing it in a duffel bag

The XDs will be NO fun to shoot unless you're into pain. It's gonna be snappy.

I prefer the knockoff taurus to the M9. I hate the high safety. I can tell you that you will be wide awake after the first shot. I've had some brutal hand cannons over the years. I only carried them and shot 20 rounds at least once a year to keep my confidence in them.

The M9 was issued, not bought. Didn't have much of a say in the matter. only wish I was still in so I could get one of the new Colt 1911's my guys are getting. Lucky bastids

I'll deal with the kick, gotta be proficient with it. Can't be any worse then the S&W 500 I shoot when I feel like spending $2.50 a round

It's different, not worse. The 500 is a big push, whereas the XDs is like taking an asp to your thumb pad. Take it from me, it gets old fast.
