I had the opportunity to shoot Springfield Armory's new 9mm version of the XD-S pistol for Personal Defense World. It was to promote the cover story on the same gun in the current issue of Combat Handguns magazine.

I was a big fan of the XD-S in .45 ACP since I shot it at Media Day at the Range a couple of years ago. I'm not a 9mm person for CCW carry, even though I love 9mm as a plinking round. But I did like the XD-S 9mm.

Here are the two videos I did on the gun. One for Personal Defense World, and the other one for my YouTube channel. They each have some unique content.

Nice video. Thanks for sharing. I recently purchased the XDs 9mm and am anxious to get it to the range. I have the XD9sc that is a nice shooter and my truck gun.

hope to have mine soon as they are coming in pretty regularily at LGS. I already have the one in 45, my only complaint on it is the amount of force to rack the slide, I need to build up my hand strength. I have to use the slide lock release to chamber the first round, only have about 50 rounds thru the gun, I am hoping slide loosens up a little.

not to be nosy, but what are those things costing at gun stores? I heard over $600

I saw two different vendors at my last local gun show that had them for $499.00 plus tax.
