When George Washington (yes, THAT George Washington) founds your brand, you'd better be serious about defending your legacy. And we are.

Come to think of it, a good defense usually requires a strong offense, so rather than just defending the status quo of our brand, we’re always looking for ways to improve on it.

#AskSpringfield: What is the best gun for concealed carry?

Posted by Jason Burton

Sep 8, 2016 10:30:00 AM

There is no single best choice to solve every concealment requirement or occasion. There are many variables that will play into exactly which gun to carry depending on the required level of concealment, mode of dress, activity level, etc.  

However, as a general rule I believe the best gun for concealment is the largest gun you can shoot effectively while still being able to have it adequately concealed. I think it is wise for folks who are serious about concealed carry to have multiple choices and here are a few of my favorites based on size:

Worlds Collide: Counter Sight Fixation

Aug 22, 2016 1:57:10 PM

It's amazing what "over thinking" can do to your accuracy. Whether you're in competition or self-defense mode, speed and accuracy are a key part of your shooting acumen. So why do we let fixating on the front sight deter both of those elements?

You've got it all under control - target is in sight, take aim and fire. However - it's not always quite that simple. What happens if another target appears that you didn't know existed? That's when all of that training you did for multiple threats should kick in.

Let's see how the Robs prepare for this scenario.

We have always been fond of Springfield Armory®'s XD(M)® pistols - from the first moment we each held one, took a sight picture and fired that first shot.

All right... we're downplaying it. A lot.

Because if you've ever met us, you know how much we absolutely love our XD(M)®s.

Worlds Collide: Return To Alignment

Posted by Rob Leatham

Aug 9, 2016 5:14:00 PM

When you're firing rounds in rapid succession, your accuracy will be dependent on how well you can return the gun to alignment. Much too often we make it about focusing on the front sight, when it really should be about getting the gun back into alignment

That's why perfecting the timing of recoil control and returning forces is critical.
