    Hard to find many guns right now... pistols, certain model shotguns, add certain semi-auto rifles, too. Sign of the times. I can't speak on the XDS, but I've experienced this with many models of different guns I've enquired about lately from endless vendors. Some vendors won't even take orders for some models due to the unknown length of back orders.

    Yea Its kinda sad. I've been looking for one from the time it dropped on the market. I've talked to a few dealers and they either tell me they can't get them or they sell them as soon as they get them. I'm on a list with my local shop to. E the next to get one. But they have no idea when they will be able to get another one.

    Im sry I had miss understood my gun dealer. But I'm on the list for one. The only problem is he probably won't even get some for a few months after the actual release date.

    Yeah that's a bummer. You should probably just order a G36.

    +1 on any of the Glocks in .45ACP...

    The G21 standard, G30 sub compact or the G36 sub compact slimline

    can do the same job as the XD45 without the weight and bulk when carrying...

    I personally carry the G30SF everyday...

    Yea that was the negative on the xds was the weight. I will probably end up buying both. But I really need one now so probably the g30 or g36.

    Go to a dealer and try a few on for size...I went to a gun range

    that rents them...and it was the best way to determine what felt

    right in my hand. The caliber was a given...;)

    My shooting buddy has every glock under the sun. I'll have to get him to go shoot soon and try them. I love a good 45 and won't go less than .40. I've also been eyeing a guncrafter industries .50 1911 but the girlfriend said that one will have to wait a while lol..

    The keyword here is "girlfriend". Get whatever the hell you want and don't let a girlfriend tell you otherwise.

    Hey I think advancedarms.com has them. They aren't an online order website however he is my ffl in pa. I am giving you the link to his site to get contact info. Best way to Contact is via e mail. You can try calling but its always real busy in the place and you will catch a busy signal. or you can get a G30 or 36. It's up to you.
