    Another Concealed Carry Pistol (XDs9)

    One of the many benefits of working at a gun shop is I get to carry at work, to such end I find myself carrying a bunch of different pistols. I will sometimes open carry one of my 1911's, usually the Grand Raptor or sometimes my Browning Highpower but most of the time I go concealed. The most carried is a tie between my LCP and Springfield EMP 9mm, with my XDm 3.8 compact 9mm every once in a while.

    I have liked the XDs .45 since it came out but after shooting one the .45 was just too much for me so when we started getting in some 9mm versions last week I jumped. Only had the chance to put a few rounds through it but it has been 100% and accurate, been carrying for the last week (with a backup, just don't trust it yet) and at 26oz loaded I forget it's there. Carried it some in the factory holster but also in a Blackhawk Check 6 that is for an XDm (had to tighten the retaining screw all the way down, also installed a set of TruGlo TFO sights, they are fiber optic by day and power by Tritium by night. I have heard that Glock subcompact holster work well but will have to try some to find some more carry options but I think this one will wedge it's way into the rotation.

    I like the xds a lot, bringing it out in 9mm will sell many guns to the recoil sensitive.

    My FFL had a couple of those in the last time I was over to his house. They are pretty sweet little pistols. He said he was holding out for the .45 cal.

    I really like guns like this. It seems that our latest generation of sub-compact, single stack 9mm's, with the double recoil springs are about one light year from the Kel-Tec PF9. No disrespect meant to the PF9, but it is a fine, reliable weapon. Recoil is too harsh for the average older shooter, and many of our female shooters.
