Been looking at the Springfield XDS in a 9mm for concealed carry. Anyone had one? Thoughts?

I had the 3.3 .45 till a dirtbag stole it. Then I got the 4.0 .45
I like them both. Very comfortable to carry in a Winthrop IWB

Had one. Good pistol. One of my favorite small pistols.

Loved my 3.3.

4" are hard to find around here. most shops have never heard of them.

XD® Mod.2 looks good too.

Someone close to me has a .40 XD in some configuration. It's small and packs a punch. Felt recoil is low for it's size and caliber. More than accurate enough for its size and purpose. Flawless function so far with store bought ammo.
Pass the gravy.

3.3" .45

Conceals very well, zero function problems with a variety of ammo in the last year.
