    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. :D
    It's a pleasure to carry also in either of the 3 holsters I have for it.

    I don't have an XDs but I do have a XD40 SC, my EDC, and a XD40 Tactical 5" and both have been flawless since day one. The Sub Compact has over 6K rounds down the pipe, I quite logging round count about six months ago, and the Tacticle has less than 1K thru it. Would I buy the XDs, in a heartbeat....

    I don't have an XD whatever that is, but I have always liked guns and I am currently contemplating buying a Taurus 357 with an 8 shot cylinder and 6 1/2" barrel and the EAA 10mm semi-auto with a 6" barrel.

    El XD es una pistola Springfield y uno de los mejores en el mercado.

    I am familiar with Springfield Armory and I do like their M1 rifle. Expensive thought.

    Not really, look at Sig Sauer prices.
    Springfield makes a good quality weapon and as my compadre for many years tells me.

    " When you buy quality you only cry once". :D

    I would go with the Glock 10mm. They have all kind of concealed semi-autos and that caliber packs a womp!
