Carry Gun Trends

Two trends were apparent in the new firearm models at the recent 2012 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show: One was increased interest in .22 Long Rifle chambered guns reflected by a host of new variants; the other was a renewed surge of small (or smallish) guns that can be concealed on one’s person (not a new concept, obviously). I have addressed the former and it is now time to look at what some of the handguns covered elsewhere in the 2012 SHOT Blog really mean.

Springfield XD-S

The latest addition to Springfield's popular Xtreme Duty (XD) line, the XD-S made its debut at SHOT Show 2012—and left as one of the show's most talked about new products.

Small Wonder: Springfield's XD-S

The latest polymer-frame XD pistol from Springfield Armory is a subcompact single-stack chambered in .45 ACP, and one of the smallest big-bore semi-automatics ever.

Springfield XD-S 9 mm

Thanks to its XD-S in .45 ACP, Springfield Armory was one of the toasts of SHOT Show 2012. Heck, the XD-S was so innovative that it went on to be named the American Rifleman Handgun of the Year. When you hit a home run like that, there's not a lot that needs changing, and Springfield agreed. So, for 2013, Springfield rolled out a slightly updated version of the XD-S: except this time it's in 9 mm.

Springfield XD-S Golden Bullseye Presentation

When you build good products, you're going to get noticed—and few honors are as well recognized as the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards.

Springfield XD-S 9 mm

Nearly identical to the .45 ACP version, save for the 9 mm chambering, the XD-S 9 mm provides all the perks of the original design-just with a smaller bore and substantially less recoil than its "big" brother.

Springfield 3.3 XD-S Recall

Springfield Armory has issued a recall of 3.3 XD-S 9 mm and 3.3 XD-S .45 ACP pistols.

Recoil Management: Springfield's 9 mm Luger XD-S

With the subcompact, single-stack .45 ACP Springfield XD-S pistol introduced last year taking awards and flying off shelves, why introduce a 9 mm Luger? In a word, recoil.
