I was lucky enough to get my hands on a new XDs. I took a few photos For those of you wondering how the XDs compares in size to some other popular concealed carry designs. I think the bottom line is that the XDs is a great little gun - but if you are looking for something that is going to magically melt away and be virtually invisible I don't think this is it. As you can see in my pictures the practical difference in width between the XDs and a compact 1911 (IMO) is pretty minimal (thought the XDs is quite a bit lighter). With that said I still think it's going to be a great (and popular) concealed carry weapon that offers a nice balance of conceal-ability, shoot-ability, and caliber. I am on the hunt now for a good IWB holster for it so if anyone has any recommendations please let me know. I hope this helps anyone out there who is interested in the XDs but hasn't been able to actually put their hands on one in person.

You bet. Glad it helps. I did a little review for fun oat www.operationswift.com

Bottom line I really like this gun. I was able to shoot it today (just 100 rounds) but it was flawless - zero malfunctions and pretty accurate. I definitely see myself carrying this gun often.

Hope they make a M&P Shield in 45 so I can stop liking the XDS so much.

Watch your lane.
