The martial arts offer an age-old perspective on something critically important to your shooting performance – reaction time. Employing a punch, a round kick, an edged weapon or a firearm in self-defense means that you’re reacting to a rapid and dynamic escalation of force. Your objective is to stop or gain control of that escalation. The single most important factor in meeting that objective is time.

SME's 411 on the Springfield Armory 911 .380 Pistol

Rob Leatham’s 411

As you’ve heard me say, I judge all guns by their “shoot-ability”; big, small, hi-capacity, low cap, 9mm, .45, it doesn’t matter - if I can’t hit what I need to hit, I have no use for the gun. And generally speaking, smaller pistols are not very “shootable”.

Which is why, I’m constantly surprised by how well the Springfield 911 .380 shoots.

The Springfield Armory® 10mm XD(M)® - From Plinking to Predators

With Springfield Armory’s recent introduction of their 10mm 1911-style pistols, I’ve been reminiscing about my first encounter with the 10mm cartridge…

Back in the mid-1980s, I remember buying my first 10mm pistol. It was a Colt Delta Elite. As I recall, Colt was one of the only companies that had introduced a "production" 10mm semi-automatic pistol. It wasn’t the first 10mm pistol built, but it was one of the first manufacturers that actually had a production capability that was keeping up with customer demands.

When Small Is All...

Posted by Steve Tarani

Sep 28, 2018 1:00:00 PM

Why carry a .380 when you can carry a .45 or even a 9mm pistol? Looking at it from the opposite end of the spectrum, why carry a .45 when you can carry a .50 caliber handgun? Why carry a pistol when you can carry a rifle?

It all filters down to personal decision based on deference to why and how you carry a gun. Further introspection should draw your attention to three important defensive carry factors that you’ve got to consider:

  1. Accessibility
  2. Concealability
  3. Personal Comfort

Accuracy. Power. Speed.

For as long as there has been shooting, whether it be for hunting, self defense, sport, or any other reason, these three aspects have embodied an idea of balance.
