#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:

The Competition Angle: The XD® Mod.2™ 5"

Posted by Rob Leatham

Jan 21, 2016 5:30:00 AM

As a competition shooter, I always want to know how well a gun will function in a performance environment. Sure, self-defense and daily-carry use are also performance-intensive, but where I need most of my guns to excel is in a controlled, scored, organized, competition environment.

That’s how I measure performance.

Polymer Pistol Perfection: The XD® Mod.2™ 5" Tactical Model

Posted by Steve Horsman

Jan 15, 2016 12:00:00 AM

When the original XD® 5" Tactical 9mm pistol came out more than 10 years ago, I immediately became a huge fan, as the gun had everything I desired in a polymer pistol.

Or so I thought at the time. Springfield Armory®'s latest XD® evolution may have just topped itself.

Back then, the XD® Tactical was without a doubt my all-time favorite polymer pistol. I shot this gun a lot. I was putting approximately 10,000 rounds a year through mine, and the more I practiced with it, the more I liked it. Through all of the seasons that I shot that pistol, I never once had a malfunction or broken part. I may have replaced the recoil spring. Once. It is reliability redefined.

Then a few years ago, the XD(M)® 5.25" came along.
