Welcome to the forum from Florida. I have made the trip to Caribou and Ft. Kent many times.......mostly during the summer months though. LOL

Default Thanks all!

Yes, I do own a few. I am interested in another handgun and thought coming here may help with my decision. I will be "lurking" around taking in your thoughts...Glad to be here!

OK...can you share what you already own and/or name which one(s) you are

interested in...that is, if you want to give us some idea of what info

you may require.

Ok, I have a little Bersa 380, a 22lr, Rem 270, and a 50cal currently. I want something "more" to carry. (I had a Glock 9mm, S&W .357, & Russian SKS stolen, but that's a story that gets my blood boiling) I'm interested in the
XD-S or...? Not really sure. Just trying to find something that isn't too bulky to carry. Any suggestions?

Wow...a .50 cal huh !

The XDs is a nice 5+1 single stack in .45acp.

It's a compact concealable package...and will probably be offered soon in 9mm & .40 S&W.

I would suggest that no matter what you hear or "look" at....nothing says anything without

handling and, if possible, shooting your options before you buy.

I'm happy with my XDs and put about 25 rds thru it this morning with no problems. It has some recoil but that's to be expected with a 45 but nothing like a 50 cal.
It's a pleasure to carry also in either of the 3 holsters I have for it.
