Swamprat's new pistol


Read your post today about usin the "Slide Release" when putting in a new magazine...Duh...Sorry.  
Always thought that was just common knowledge.  Guess not for every one though.
 
Anyhoo....
started packin a new "carry piece" a couple weeks ago.  Pretty incredible little pistol if ya read up on it.  The XDS in .45 ACP single stack.... from Springfield Armory.  7+1 or 5+1.  
Also picked up the Crimson Trace Laser, especially made for the XDS.  First time I ever had a Laser.  Interesting little toy....don't know how long I will keep it on.  
 
When putting in a new mag....STILL just use the slide release.  It's not as big as yours, but it works just fine. 
 
Here's a couple picts, AND a Vid of the little sucker....I've never seen a .45.....ANY .45 let alone one with a 3.3" barrel, hit a Gong 4 out of 6 shots....at 100 Yards!  Like I said.  Cool pistol Ken.  The guys a pretty damn good shot too.

Very nice. You Americans are lucky to have such freedoms. Enjoy them while you can and resist those that wish to take them away.

Nice shooting Tex, hell I'd be happy just putting the rounds on paper at hundred yards. Now I'm gonna have to take my Colt 1911 MK IV 3.5 barrel and see how it goes.

Leavon, if it's an Officer's Model, it can do it if you're up to the task.

Yep - I'm still amazed at the number of folks who think they need to 'ride' the slide forward because using the slide release is 'hard' on the gun.........sigh, what do they think is happening every time they actually shoot the thing???

This is an excellent CCW, small and very easy to conceal to the point no-one can tell you're "packing". I like the 5.11 tactical t-shirt in winter.

Pierre. Aint no way they are taking us all out, because thats what they would have to do.

Its the Officers Model, bought it about twenty five years ago, in all that time I've never tried at anything over twenty five yards. I'll give it a go next weekend and see.

I own an Officer's Model too. Love that fucker. I bought one the first year they came out and it's still my everyday carry gun.

I love the Hell out of my XD-40SC.

Might want to look into a PistolGear Slide Stop for it.

VERY nice! I have an XDm 9 that is amazingly fun to shoot, also just picked up the XDs9. My carry is an STI Elektra 9 (No, not pink) and the old man just picked up a Boberg that I might steal from him. Hands down favorite though is a 45 Sig 1911 style that is just fun. To large for me to carry, but a lot of fun to use.
