Springfield's XD(m)-9 5.25

January 13, 2012

At first glance, Springfield Armory's XD(m)-9 5.25 pistol may be viewed as a pistol for competitive shooters. The company did indeed seek design input from champion shooter Rob Leatham.

Read our full "Arsenal" review of the gun.

Handguns: 2011

Is the 1911 Still Viable for Law Officers?

September 30, 2010
The main reason the M1911 is so successful is its grip angle. It's a natural pointer. The pistol takes advantage of the hand's natural geometry to promote accuracy, and the angle also makes the gun a pleasure to shoot. Having said that, certain steps must be taken to make the M1911 ready for carry.

May 31, 2010
