American Rifleman's Mark Keefe and world-class shooter Rob Leatham of Team Springfield exchange thoughts on the ideal carry gun.
American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach talked to the top makers of concealment holsters to find out what carry pistols are most popular today.
Compact, lightweight .45 ACP pistols, such as the Springfield Armory XD-S 3.3", are ideal for concealed carry; however, building proficiency with them through regular practice can be painful.
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.
