Anyone own a springfield xd-s in 9mm?

2017-04-10 01:56:31 UTC  

I had one a few years back

2017-04-10 01:59:22 UTC  

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.

2017-04-10 02:00:44 UTC  

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

2017-04-10 02:01:34 UTC  

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

2017-04-10 02:04:44 UTC  

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

2017-04-10 02:08:07 UTC  

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?

2017-04-10 02:08:31 UTC  

Seems a bit odd to me.

2017-04-10 02:12:12 UTC  

I don't remember it being like that

2017-04-10 02:13:01 UTC  

That's how my handgun is, it's not too bothersome

I got brushes and some blueing if you need to borrow some

2017-04-10 02:14:05 UTC  

Probably

2017-04-10 02:14:43 UTC

2017-04-10 02:14:59 UTC  

Wanna chill?

2017-04-10 02:15:04 UTC  

Yeah, that just seems strange to me. And that doesn't affect your shooting at all?

2017-04-10 02:15:25 UTC  

Nah, just increases felt recoil a little bit

2017-04-10 02:16:43 UTC  

YEe dude

2017-04-10 02:16:44 UTC  

Guess I better get down to the warehouse and check one out. Do you carry that concealed?

2017-04-10 02:17:45 UTC  

Not yet, I don't have my permit, but I can tell it would very comfortable

2017-04-10 02:18:19 UTC  

I was only concerned that the lack of grip might make it harder to draw.

2017-04-10 02:18:34 UTC  

That could be a possibility

2017-04-10 02:18:40 UTC  

Carried in the waistband I mean.

2017-04-10 02:19:05 UTC  

But most gripping power is in the middle and ring fingers

2017-04-10 02:20:57 UTC  

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.

2017-04-10 02:21:21 UTC  

>Using my AK with a drum mag as a lifting weight.

2017-04-10 02:21:30 UTC  

Seems like having a shorter grip might make that a bit harder.

2017-04-10 02:22:37 UTC  

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

2017-04-10 02:23:13 UTC  

Most definitely.
