Anyone own a springfield xd-s in 9mm?
I had one a few years back
Is it one you'd recommend? I'm looking for a smaller concealed carry weapon. So far I'm thinking about the Ruger lc9s and the Springfield xd-s. Trying to find a balance between low price and quality.
I love Springfield, ergonomically it was the most comfortable gun I have held. It's also extremely easy to clean and take apart. I would even look into the 45 to be honest it's still pretty small
I don't remember the price difference, but I don't think I'll own anything other than a Springfield at this point, but that's just me
Online, the price difference is about $20. The .45 was my first choice since I already own a 1911. But...9mm is cheap and easier to handle, or so I've read. As for the ergonomics, that's what's been drawing me to the xd-s.
I believe they are about the same size, yeah all those guns are great feeling
The only thing that bothered me, from the reviews I've read, is that the grip only allows for two fingers without using the basepad on the clip. Is that true? And how does it fare shooting like that?
Seems a bit odd to me.
I don't remember it being like that
That's how my handgun is, it's not too bothersome
I got brushes and some blueing if you need to borrow some
What you doing Tuesday night
Should be free after 8
9 at the latest
Yeah, that just seems strange to me. And that doesn't affect your shooting at all?
Nah, just increases felt recoil a little bit
Guess I better get down to the warehouse and check one out. Do you carry that concealed?
Not yet, I don't have my permit, but I can tell it would very comfortable
I was only concerned that the lack of grip might make it harder to draw.
That could be a possibility
Carried in the waistband I mean.
But most gripping power is in the middle and ring fingers
No, I just meant that when I go to pull my little makarov out of my waitband, the bottom inch and half or so of the grip is what allows me to remove it without having to dig it out.

Seems like having a shorter grip might make that a bit harder.
Just tried with a drop leg holster, and it doesn't make it much more difficult, but I would go down and test one out
