Looking to buy my first pistol, and came across this gun. Felt good, and is something the wife could handle too. Anyone have any experience or opinions on it?

I like mine. I was going to buy one when they first came out, but glad I waited until the 4" barrel version came out, which I liked even better.
All the best,
Glenn

It's solid. A good choice. I also prefer the 4.0, but my wife carries the 3.3. No problems experienced yet.

Not a pistol guy, but loved my xd 40 so I stayed with Springfield and bought the xds 9.
It shoots and handles well. It has performed flawlessly in the few rounds I have fired.
However, the trigger was unsatisfactory and I paid a group to install the parts I ordered. Better, but not perfect.
Truthfully, I would rather have a glock 43 or even a shield.

I carry a XDS 9 4.0 and my wife carries a XDS 9 3.3

I absolutely love Springfield products. We each have an XDM next to our bed as well.

You can't go wrong with one. I have S&W, Berreta, and Glocks as well, but still prefer the springfields for semi pistols

This is my go to as well. Great gun Very accurate for a compact pistol, if shooter does his/her part. I couldn't be happier with mine.
