    You sold your Glock for an XD?

    I have not heard much about the XDS but if it's anything like the XDM then you don't want it. At least not for the asking price.

    many people poo poo the XD line but I've met quite a few people who are very happy with them. It's like anything, you can find some people who love and some people who hate anything. I have heard from many people that they do really like the XDS and that it's a better gun than the rest of the XD line

    I've got one, I like it. Shoots amazingly well for a gun that fits well in the front pocket. I have about 600 rounds down the tube of mine, shoots 2" at 50 feet with any ammo, and it will even feed lead SWCs.

    I pocket carry it quite a bit, and it is a more feasible pocket gun that the G26 or 27.

    Don't replace a Glock with any variant of an XD.

    I don't understand why people get so wrapped around the axle about needing some different gun when it gets hot. A G19 IWB is doable year round, even in the hot and humid Texas summers. I will even carry my FS M&P45 in the summer IWB in shorts and a t-shirt. And, no, I would not get rid of a Glock for an XD-anything.

    I'd never trade a Glock for an XD... But that's just me.

    I'd go G26 if I were you OP. Compatibility with ammo and magazines between your primary carry and the same manual of arms cannot be beat over any "advantage" you see in the XD. That and going Glock to XD is a downgrade.
