Figured I'd ask here as I can't make up my mind, I'm looking for a new range toy. I'm looking at either the Springfield XDs 9mm or the M&P Performance Shield 9mm.

I know their are both compact frames and I'm only using them as range toys and maybe..just maybe be a CC in the future. I'm more looking at them since they are about what I want to spend a little coin on for right now. I'm only looking to spend around the $500 mark or less.

I like the XDS grip the best (with the extended clip obviously) but I love the sights on the performance shield. I feel the both shoot well and didn't have one that jumped out and said yes buy this one.

So out of the two which would you choose?

I have a xds .45 in the 4" barrel version, the trigger sucked the pull was so hard I shot low all the time, I did a trigger job knocked it down to 5.5 lbs and it was all good, aside from the crap trigger I liked the rest of the gun I carry it from time to time, prefer the glock 19 or lcp as a edc gun

as a range tool, i would not buy a compact, bug if your'e set on one of those two, i'd choose the M&P. both are good guns and it really comes down to personal preference, kind of like ford vs chevy. but full size frames make much better range toys.

True, I have been eyeing the sig 226 for years but that's later down the road. I also have a 1911 9mm as a full frame gun hence why I'm looking at either of these 2 options.

To me the PC Shield would be better suited for a range gun between those 2. The ported barrel should reduce recoil some. I take my shield to the range more than any other gun I own.

I had a 9mm xds and sold it. Wasn't for me. Never shot a shield. I like the idea of the ported shield but it's not something I'd have to buy.

I'd personally save the cash if you're not going to conceal carry it since that's what those 2 guns primarily for. Save up and buy something else you'd want more. My .02

So I just got back from maxon.

First time shooting a 45. So surprised how all 3 guns were completely different when shooting.

I shot a sig 220, xdm and then xds. I loved the xds the most. 220 had so much more recoil.

On the bright side. I freaking love my sr9c. I'm not the best shot but it felt great hand. I strongly prefer the 10round mag to the 17.

I love my sr9c as well. As long as I use the pinky extender on the 10 round mag.
