It feels really good in my hand and after making the unboxing video tonight I can't wait until Saturday when I will have the chance to actually shoot the pistol out on the range. Less words and more video.
I remember watching a video back in January with Rob Leatham describing the XDs 45 as a "game changer" for Springfield. It stuck in my head, but I maintained a little healthy skepticism until I actually got my own hands on one. If this thing checks out on the range, I will be adding one to my carry rotation. I like it that much. It really feels that good in my hands.
