Finally, had a chance to take my new XDS .45 to the range. I put 200 rounds through it without any problems. I shot 130 rounds of Remington green & white box UMC 230 grain FMJ, 50 rounds of PMC Bronze 230 grain FMJ and 20 rounds of Hornady Critical Defense 185 grain JHP FTX, my carry round. Very impressed with how well the gun handled. It does have a kick to it, but nothing I can't control. This is my first SA and I believe I made a good choice. This will be just one of my CCW weapons. I have a Crimson Trace Red Dot laser arriving tomorrow and I am in the market for some night sights, also.
