Recently I determined I needed a new purpose driven concealed carry weapon. It need to be small to mid-sized, large caliber, single column, black, moderately corrosion resistant and have a left handed retention holster available. After a bunch of research I came to understand that the Springfield Armory XDS 45 Pistol met all my criteria and as a side note had the best corrosion resistant internals. Interestingly this is my first Springfield Armory firearm.
The holster I ended up purchasing is the BlackHawk Serpa Holster With Bl And Paddle for Springfield XDS,Left Hand 410565BK-L for $33 at Amazon
