Dark Earth XD-S Pistols

    This particular model will likely be my first center fire automatic. I like how it feels and shoots. It really looks cool with the earth tones, even if it is meant to be used as a comcealed carry in the future for my wife and I.

    I’m holding out for the 357-Sig wide-body model, with 2.85-inch barrel in medium yak-pelt brown.

    The xds is the finest handgun in its’ category; single stack small pistols shooting full size boolits. I like glocks but have no temptation to replace the xds with a g43. And the manufacturing quality of the xds is quite a bit higher than that of the shield. It is very accurate, easily hitting targets at 50 yards. The 7+1 in 9mm is quite adequate for its’ size. It feels like a real piece of weaponry in hand.. it does not give the impression of being under gunned or less capable that some other pistols in this category give off. I have other pistols of a similar size and capacity that have about half the effective range as the xds. It looks badass in the fde, makes me want to ‘cote mine! Coming with the SA mag promo doesn’t hurt either, I think it came with 6 or 7 mags.
