the shield is a 9mm and the XDM is a .45.
just some pics so people can get an idea of the size of each (if interested)
both have flush mags in with pierce pinky extensions.
XDM has Talon rubber grips , shield has Pachmyr sleeve.
the XDM is actually very close in size to what an M&P .9/40 Compact is (compared it to my buddys)
the width is a bit more on the .45 but overall very close. Much easier to carry than expected. [smile]
definitely easier than my FS .M&P .40 that's for sure.
I would guess the XDS is very close in size to a Shield.

Pretty close to the 45 shield, no?
I think the .45 shield will be thinner but overall size is not that much bigger, and with the pinky extension I have(going on my other mag) I get 10 +1 of .45
here I have 9+1, it's definitely fatter and probably taller (XDM has a tall slide) than a shield though but very close to the compact. I'll post some comparison pics vs my FS .40 later on as well

The xds is the same size as a g43 just a hair taller due to grip angle and little wider since the xds use the same frame for 9 and 45.
My gf owns a 43 and u got a xds in 45 .
