baaaaaaaaaad to the bone
- South Carolina....no public land
I carried an XDS for a little while but could never really shoot it well. I also had to lock the slide back and use the release to chamber a round. If I tried to rack it by hand it would jam the round into the ramp. 45 is a lot of power for that little gun. It did carry well and seemed to be really well put together
Yeah, I'm not near as accurate with the XDS as I am with my 1911, but with the XDS I can put a magazine in a head sized group at 40 feet pretty easily, even with rapid fire. That's good enough for a carry. If I want to play with accuracy, as in target shooting, the 1911 is the one.
And yes, for sure the XDS kicks a lot harder than the 1911. With my upcoming lifestyle I just don't have the capacity for more than one caliber and I like the knock-down power of the .45.
