Putting the Springfield XD-S .45 ACP to the Test
Springfield's new XD-S was one of the most popular guns at Media Day at the Range 2012, and with good reason. The newest addition to the XD line, the XD-S features a slim, single stack frame that still manages to deliver the infamous .45 caliber firepower.
The XD-S's slim feel and comfortable design make it easy to handle and shoot. American Rifleman Editor-in-Chief Mark Keefe wanted to see the gun put through its paces by a true pro at Media Day, and so he turned to champion shooter Rob Leatham. Check out the results in the video above!
