Author Raymond E. James (10 months)
Great video BigDaddy! I really enjoyed watching. I purchased the XDs 45
this past august and did not get a chance to shoot it due to the Recall, I
sent it on Sept.29-2013 and they received it on Oct-4 so its going to be
after the Holidays before I get it back. I am anxious to get it back and
start shooting.
Thanks for sharing the video and your knowledge.

He's doing the GONG! Hickok45 has infected all the gun video-makers! If
there's no gong, it's not a good gun vid!

Author 351WINCHESTER (1 year)
What's not to like about a .45 that works? I just bought an xds and it's a
great shooting pistol. It does have a lot more recoil than a 9 or 40, but
heck, it's a .45.

Author Snyderman (1 year)
Big Daddy needs to keep his finger off the trigger while he's talking...and
wait till he is lined up on his target. Basic gun safety. Thanks for the
video...think im gonna get one!

Author oldairforcedude (2 years)
You're a pleasure to watch BD, for sure. Great informative video, as
expected. I want to buy the Glock 36, single stack .45acp, until I saw this
Springfield XDs, and the reviews I've watch agree with you, that it has a
little kick but really surprisingly manageable. I like that, and it's
reliability seems excellent. Don't know which way I'll go, I love tearing
Glocks down to their smallest parts, but, love the looks of this XDs.
Thanks Bdaddy for your time and efforts.

I have a xds 45 and love it! its easy to control. its very easy to conceal.
and its trigger is leaps and bounds better than most other guns....

Author Sauerpower69 (2 years)
Nice video Big Daddy, I've been carrying this gun for a month now. It's a
fun shooter, has some kick. I've put 300+ rounds through mine and not one
problem,hollow points and ball ammo. Great carry piece. Everyone who's
waiting for a smaller caliber with more rounds, remove your tampon and buy
this bad boy.

Author BigDaddyHoffman1911 (2 years)
Thanks for your kind words but there will never be another Hickok45, he's a
legend in the gun world and would love to have his knowledge and skill.
Anyway, I like the grip safety and the sights on the XDS but if you like
your Glock 36 I wouldn't replace it with this one. I carry a Glock 30 .45
and a S&W .357 AirLite PD revolver for backup. Guess it just comes down to
personal preference. Thanks Friend

and have a great weekend.

You are very observant and yes I had a wrist injury that cost me about

Great job as usual BDH, I just picked up my XDS two days ago. I have put
200 rounds through it so far without a single malfunction. It's dead on PoI
at 7 yards with Speer Gold Dot bonded 230gr. When I get to 300 rounds
without any failures it'll become my new carry pistol. Semper Fi friend.

Author Krogan Wrex (1 year)
OH YES! (Talks like THE DOCTOR's voice from the show Doctor Who.) This is a
gun that makes love to your hands! ;)

Author BigDaddyHoffman1911 (2 years)
Good to know! Like you, I haven't had the first problem with this one and
love the sights. Just can't beat a .45......Thanks Friend.

Author Augest West (1 year)
well for a small 45 she seems pretty accurate. No jams. The only thing I
question is that it's made in CROATIA. Also for a small gun that almost
jumps out of your hands that rear safety could be a concern.

Author 1celts79 (2 years)
Mr. B. Daddy you are a lot more animated and I enjoy your videos over
Hickok45 for sure, He's O.K. but a tad on the dry side ... anyway, tell me
why I should replace my G36 with this???

I bought my own on my birthday 2 weeks ago. The xd-s is awesome! I enjoyed
