Cabelas has a couple in stock at the moment and you can order from Gander Mountain.

I ordered a bi-tone from Gander with a Monday pickup. Of course the ammo I ordered won't be in til Wednesday.

I put about 100 rounds through mine and am really happy with it. I was a little nervous about buying something without being able shoot one first but so far can't find anything I don't like about it.

Picked one up yesterday in GR. Haven't shot it yet, but I really like it.

Mine crossed the 500rd mark sometime this weekend. Shot it in 3 matches, took high overall at one of them with it.

I really like it so far. Only thing is my thumb rides the slide lock, so getting it to lock back is spotty at best, but that's no big deal.

Good shooting looks like fun. The guys hate when we set up stages because we change things up form the normal run to the box and shoot crap. I may copy the cart and spool next time if I can one.

I shot mine for the first time yesterday. I love it. I haven't shot anything in six months and didn't do too bad. I Only put a box through it though.

One stove pipe though. And it doesn't like the extended mag. I think the sleeve that goes over the mag to make the grip extended is to tall and it doesn't allow it to seat fully.

Other than that I think we have a winner.

Now to find a good carry holster for it.

Kerry seems to like her lc9 as well. :)

Mine doesn't like Hornady JHPs. I'm thinking it's the bullet profile letting it hang up on the locking block under the feed ramp.

Investigated the failure to feed issue a bit further, I think it has to do with cartridges with a shorter OAL, and possibly something to do with the Hornady bullet profile.

Anybody here having this issue?

My XDS 45 feeds Speer Gold Dots without an issue. Haven't tried any Hornady loads, but if I run across some I will.

This is why you always try your carry ammo in a gun before carrying. I'm shocked at how many people I know that will buy a gun, throw ammo in it, and carry it without ever firing it first.

Yep, it's crazy. Rob Pincus picked up my blog post and it went viral yesterday, hopefully it will get the message out that people need to shoot their guns and verify that they will run with whatever ammo they are carrying.

And now the XDs is being recalled. Springfield is saying to unload carefully, and stop using them immediately.

This effects both 9mm and .45ACP models. Springfields recall site is getting hammered, but I saved the text from it below.

Sigh... I needed something to carry while the XDs is gone, and this guy followed me home this afternoon.

Popped the hardware off of my G-Code INCOG holster, molded a new body for the Shield, and it's good to go.

What's your preference? The Shield or the XDS? I carry an M&P40c when I'm not carrying the XDS-45. I know the Shield is identical in size to the M&Pc, but just a single stack.
