The Shield is a bit smaller than the c models in the other dimensions as well. Barrel is 1/2" shorter...
I like the XDs better. Trigger is better, sights are better, no thumb safety, etc.
Rumor is that Springfield is modifying the trigger on the XDs though, so I hopefully it keeps the same trigger pull when it returns. If not I may be keeping the Shield.
