I just wanted to share my new summer carry solution with y'all. I finally bought a Springfield XDs in the only caliber I use, .45acp.
I've had the pleasure of shooting a few of them and they've all run flawlessly. It's super light, at 21oz and super compact. In fact, it's the world's smallest production 45. It runs everything under the sun, including my fluffy competition reloads and the recoil (or lack of it) is nothing short of astonishing in such a feather weight; extremely controllable. Even my 1911's didn't get upset when I brought it home!
Here ya go!
The take-up on the trigger is typical XD and pretty much sucks overall. It's likely going to get at least worked, if not put a whole new Powder River Precision kit in it.
That said, this is a great little gun and extraordinarily concealable.
