The Springfield XDs .45 ACP Essentials

The Springfield XDs .45 ACP is hands down one of the most outstanding sub-compact carry 45’s available on the market today. When it was introduced in 2012, it re-wrote the rules of what we, as gun buyers, were allowed to carry when trying to find that perfect “smallest and most powerful” concealment firearm. Before this was unveiled, we were bound by small calibers if we wanted to carry incognito. But times have changed.

 

Springfield XDs .45 ACP

One thing that has been left unchanged, however, is the unique value that Springfield XDs .45 ACP has to offer. Traditionally, the package included a paddle holster for the gun, a 2-magazine belt holster, extra fiber optic front sights, a bore brush, and a hi-quality gun case that kept it all organized and together. Today, Springfield offers a more economically priced package for this firearm and it only includes what they consider “essential.” And this package happens to be branded The Essentials Package.

What the Springfield XDs .45 ACP Essentials Package Includes

This Essentials Package includes the same hi-quality firearm, 2 magazines (one flush mount and one extended mag), the extra Fiber Optic front sights (one Red and one Green/Yellow), the standard bore brush, 1 extra backstrap, and its own slightly smaller but still great quality hard gun case. Not a bad way to get started, right? I can assure you that the bang for buck value is second to none as well compared to other packages out there. Especially at GunBuyer.com prices!

The Springfield XDs .45 ACP Gun Features

Springfield XDs .45 ACP

Instantly when you see it, XDs .45 pretty much looks exactly like its smaller counterpart, the XDs 9mm. (Except there’s a bigger hole at the end of it!) The aggressive stippling wraps all the way around the pistol grip to provide an outstanding positive grip to help manage and mitigate recoil.  The trigger has a crisp, clean break after you take up the small amount of creep, and the reset is just as short and quick. The Springfield XD-S .45 ACP weighs in at about 23 oz., which isn’t too bad, and let’s not forget the back-strap safety which is a great added feature to mitigate against accidental discharge. This means your hand will have to be physically gripping the gun for the trigger to able to engage and fire.

Overall, the Springfield XDs .45 ACP is a great sub-compact pistol for carry and concealment, and self-defense purposes. It is just an overall great pistol to take out for a fun day of sending rounds down range. Click here for a complete list of specifications and pick yours up at GunBuyer.com today!

Sig P320: Handgun Of The Year 2016

Everybody wants to create the best of the best, and the folks at NRA’s American Rifleman have said that Sig Sauer has taken the cake with the Sig P320 winning the Golden Bullseye Handgun of the Year. Check out the full list of Bullseye Awards Here! The wonders of innovation and design, one could not live without the other, they go together like wine and cheese. Business’ success relies on this fundamental practice. When it comes to the firearms industry, innovation is how a company keeps up with your competition. Sig Sauer is constantly doing just that.

The Sig P320 is the newest handgun from Sig Sauer. The interesting and innovative design behind this pistol takes the best qualities of the P250 design and creates a striker fired version. First off, let’s go over the differences between the P250 and the P320. The P250 was Sig Sauer’s answer to a modular handgun system that utilizes a serialized chassis that was double action only. This set up allows the end user to change frame sizes and calibers if need be. The gun was a success for awhile until people didn’t care for the double action mechanism. After feedback from customers on what they would prefer on the next design, the folks at Sig Sauer took the input to heart and eventually came up with the Sig P320. The P320 is similar to the P250 but lacks the double action mechanism and implements the more popular striker fired mechanism. The chassis is removable and allows the user to switch calibers and frame sizes. All in all it’s a neat design that allows the user to have multiple guns chambered in varying calibers with only one serial number. Interested in more specs on the P320? Find out more here! 

sig p320

Now on to the big question, why was this gun chosen for Handgun of the Year over the other designs? I prefer hammer fired pistols from H&K and Sig Sauer, but when it comes to striker fired guns, I tend to lean toward the newer designs because they essentially fixed the flaws in the previous weapon lines. I like the H&K VP9 and The Walther PPQ, but what I find fascinating in the Sig P320 is it’s modularity. This feature is like none I have seen so far. Having the ability to switch out the chassis to another frame size and caliber is something special. Think of Law Enforcement agencies with tight budgets that purchase the P320 and can now offer their officers a range of flexibility depending on the circumstance. I believe that speaks volumes, and I believe the concept is growing in popularity.

American Rifleman awarded the Sig P320 the Golden Bullseye award for Handgun of the Year, and for good reason. For a company that continues to innovate and change the way we know and feel about firearms, it’s safe to say that no matter what type of Sig Sauer you are interested in, you’ll feel confident when it counts.

Taurus PT111 : A pistol your pocketbook will love!

For many people, including some first time gunbuyers, money is tight! I know this and so do you, but sometimes the most frugal shopper finds the diamond in the rough. Case in point, the Taurus PT111 Millenium Pro G2.

The Taurus PT111 is a fantastic gun for the price. Taurus has created a type of firearm that is easily accessible and comfortable enough in the hand that anyone can handle it. The appeal of the Taurus PT111 is the size and weight. The PT111 weighs in at a whopping 22oz unloaded. For the average person out there who doesn’t think that’s a big deal, make no mistake, when you carry for a living precious ounces can be a HUGE factor. The next thing Taurus has going for them is the striker fired mechanism. The Taurus PT111 utilizes a striker fired mechanism, similar to Glock, S&W M&Ps etc and so on. By having this feature the shooter is able to have a consistent trigger pull with no surprise, differing from guns that feature a hammer design that incorpoate DA/SA (double action/ single action). This mode of operation can confuse some new shooters by the transition from double to single. The striker fired versions do away with all that and give the shooter the confidence of knowing that when they pull the trigger it will be the same each time.  For more information on the specs of the Taurus PT11 Click Here!

Carry and Concealment H&K Home Defense Self Defense

The VP9 from H&K

VP9

The H&K VP9

When the H&K VP9 first hit the market in 2014 it sky-rocketed in popularity and sales for self defense and protection. But before we talk more about the pistol, lets take a moment and learn a little about Gun History.

VP9

During WWII, The German forces were having trouble trying to find a manufacturer that could produce a reliable pistol that could make up for the ones that were being lost at an incredible rate during wartime operations. The predominate model that they had at the time was the famous Luger, and those were constantly being confiscated by allied troops at an astounding rate (especially as war trophies like the one your great-grandfather has). Germany needed to replenish those losses as fast as possible by designing a pistol that was not only reliable, but could also be designed simple enough to be manufactured at a high-production rate. The term that was coined to identify this new endeavor was “Volkspistol,” translated as the “Peoples Pistol.” These projects to design the new Volkspistol didn’t just get allocated to one manufacturer. That is why you can find the Volkspistol name attached to firearms by manufactures like Walther and Mauser, which are both German based companies just like H&K.  Eventually those manufactures did produce their own versions (one of the most famous ones was the Walther VP)… And that’s how the name VP was established. Volkspistol was shorted to just VP.

*As a side note… most gun buyers have pointed out the the new VP9 looks very similar to the new Walther PPQ… I wonder why?

I don’t claim to be an expert on WWII History so if any other gun buyers out there care to share more knowledge on this topic, feel free to comment below and enlighten us! I would be glad to hear more about it!

About the VP9

The VP9 is a striker-fired 9mm Semi-Automatic pistol. Its’ reinforced polymer Lower Receiver and stainless steel slide make it considerably light weight at about 25 ½ oz with an empty magazine. The trigger system consists of a 5.4 lbs. trigger pull with .24” of travel, and .12” of reset. This is highly desirable as it enables the shooter to instantly apply follow-on shots at a considerable rate since the trigger barely needs to move. The VP9 also comes with a great supply of ergonomic grip profiles for users to adjust and customize the pistol grip to exactly how they like it. Once a shooter has the ability to obtain that ideal grip position, accurate follow on shots is the induced side effect because recoil can be more easily managed. The Hi-Viz Sights that are included on the firearm also make it extremely easy to obtain the perfect sight picture and proper sight alignment.

VP9

 

One thing that H&K is famous for is innovating the concept of polygonal rifling back in the 1960’s. This new bore design effectively seals the gases from the propellant, keeping it behind the bullet as it travels down the bore and out the muzzle. This new concept considerably improves muzzle velocity. H&K also claims that it will greatly improve the life of the barrel by thousands of rounds over conventional lands-and-grooves.

One convenient feature that H&K have included on the VP9 is the red-colored striker-fire pin that is located on the back of the slide. This red indicator informs the shooter when the weapon is in-fact cocked and ready to fire. Located on the side of the Slide is an enlarged, heavy-duty cartridge extractor that also functions as a loaded chamber indicator. It should be noted that this is H&K’s first striker-fired pistol since the 1980’s, so its pretty cool to know that they are taking the time to seriously innovate and accommodate this type of firing system for today’s shooters that seem to be leaning more toward that market.

VP9

Shooters will also notice that picatinny rail system that is molded into the Lower Receiver. This is great for shooters that are currently operating in the field, or those who are purchasing this weapon for home defense, to attach a flashlight or laser.

For those that have not had the chance to shoot the VP9, with the combination of the ergonomically enhanced pistol grip, outstanding trigger, and optimized recoil spring, you will surely be impressed and confident knowing that it shoots with extreme ease and incredible accuracy.  Overall the H&K VP9 is an outstanding weapon for self defense and protection.

The All New Walther PPQ 45

Walther PPQ 45

Walther PPQ 45

The Walther PPQ 45 is considered by Walther to be their “Flagship” weapon and features the latest in innovation and technology for centerfire pistols.

Walther PPQ 45

The Walther PPQ 45 is virtually identical to its’ M2 counterparts, but is designed specifically to please the gun buyer looking for that extra bit of stopping power from the .45 ACP. The Walther PPQ 45 features 3-Dot Polymer Sights for rapid aiming and target acquisition. The rear sight is adjustable to compensate for windage, and both sights are low-profiled and tapered to reduce snagging on clothes. The trigger is Walther’s patented “Police Pistol Quick Defense Trigger” (which is also were the PPQ name comes from) and consists of a 4.8-5.6 lbs. trigger pull. The trigger only has .4” of travel with .1” of reset which enables shooters to quickly implement accurate follow-on shots.

Walther PPQ 45

The most predominate part of the Walther PPQ 45 that almost every gun buyer and shooter points out is the outstanding ergonomic grip. The cross-direction grip surface and comfortable palm and finger groves provide extra grip and support to enhance control and mitigate shot displacement. This added control also helps shooters manage recoil with extreme ease. This feature also enables quicker follow-on shots. The Walther PPQ 45 features interchangeable backstraps (standard & large) to customize the grip personally to your hands.
The lower receiver features a picatinny rail system that enables shooters to quickly mount any optional accessories, such as a flashlight and/or laser, to accommodate different shooting environments. The upper receiver features Walther’s new Slide Serrations, both on the front and rear, that provide a non-slip surface when manipulating the slide with absolute ease and control.

Walther PPQ 45

All of these features that come standard on the new Walther PPQ 45 provide a level of performance that is needed in most urban and tactical environments. This may also be why it is used specifically, not only by the German Police Force, but other law enforcement agencies and militaries around the world.

Springfield XD Mod.2 Service Model

The Springfield XD Mod.2 Service Model

The Springfield XD Mod.2 Service Model is an outstanding firearm for any gunbuyer who desires a 9mm pistol for self defense purposes, or for simply having fun at the range.

Features

The light-weight polymer lower receiver and pistol grip have been ergonomically enhanced and feature new “GripZone” technology to assist in recoil management, which also increases accuracy and consistency.  Since it is considered a “duty-ready” 4 inch barrel Service Model, Springfield has also integrated a picitiny rail system to accommodate accessories such as a flashlight or laser. (Both of which great additions considering this firearm is also perfect for home defense.)

Springfield XD Mod.2 Service Model

The upper receiver is made of high-quality Forged Steel and is coated in a protective black Melonite finish (also available in Bi-Tone). Serrated grooves have been cut near the front and rear of the slide to allow for a more positive grip while manipulating the firearm. Springfield has also included high visibility, low-profile sights that consist of interchangeable fiber optic inserts for shooters to swap out to accommodate for different shooting environments.

One thing that gunbuyer’s will love about the Springfield XD Mod.2 Service Model, is that it’s almost as slim as a traditional single-stack firearm, but still holds 16+1 rounds. This makes it ideal for carry and concealment and self defensive purposes.

Safety Features

Since it is a Springfield, right away shooters will realize that it comes loaded with multiple types of safety and redundancy features. The first thing shooters will notice is the Back-Strap Safety (also known as grip-safety). What this does is ensure that the shooter’s hand must acquire a full positive grip on the firearm before one of the safety mechanisms will be disengaged. Second, the Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) Action Trigger System means that active placement of the trigger finger on the trigger, and positive grip to disengage the back-strap safety, must BOTH be implemented for the weapon to be fired. There is also a Loaded Chamber Indicator and Striker Status Indicator, letting the shooter know exactly what Condition the firearm is in.  All of these features are designed to not only make the firearm more safe, but also provide confidence to the shooter.

Springfield XD Mod.2 Service Model

A side effect to all these features is that since it forces the shooter to hold the firearm the correct way, it will theoretically cause them to actually be more accurate and consistent in their shot placement. Having a high and firm pistol grip not only disengages the safety, but lowers the center of gravity of the firearm, reducing felt recoil, and implementing accurate shots.

Springfield XDs 9mm Essentials

Springfield XDs 9mm

The Springfield XDs 9mm Essentials Package

Springfield XDs 9mm

The Springfield XDs 9mm has proven to be an outstanding firearm in the sub-compact category. In-fact, as previously stated in the “Top 4 Contenders” blog post, it’s stated that the Springfield XDs 9mm is one of our top selling firearms. As most of us all know, if you purchase a Springfield, they hook you very generously with extra magazines, gun and magazine holsters, a hi-quality gun case, and extra fiber-optic sights; basically, everything you would ever need. But for the gun buyer shopping on a budget and to help make the cost much more economical, Springfield offers a package just the essential things you would need to get started. And the name of the infamous package? You guessed it, it’s the Springfield XD-S Essentials Package, and its comes available in both 9mm and 45 ACP.

From the factory, the Springfield XDs Essentials are packed in a hi-quality hard case, and include two magazines (one is an extended magazine and one is flush fitting), bore brush, and extra fiber optic front sights (in both red and green). Not too bad for an “essentials” package, right? And, its priced competitively with the other big names who manufacturer single stack handguns.

The Characteristics of the XD-S

XD-S Essentials

This may sound repetitive from my previous blog when I compared the XDs 9mm with the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield, Glock 43, and Ruger LC9, but I would still like you to know how great of a firearm this really is. The first thing that stands out is the aggressive stippling that wraps around the entire pistol grip. When you first put in your hand, you notice right away the solidity it presents as you grip it. To me, it has the most predominate feeling of a weapon of any other polymer gun I have ever held. When I first shot with it, I noticed that since each stipple is so big, it actually has its own flat surface which still made my sweaty hands slip a bit when managing the recoil. This is a small draw-back considering its main competitors barely have stippled grips to begin with. With that being said, after I threw on my set of shooting gloves, the stippling proved to be much more affective than any other polymer pistols I have ever shot.

Springfield XDs 9mm

One thing that I love about the Springfield XDs 9mm is the sights. The front sight comes stock with a Red Fiber Optic, as well as extra Red AND Green (or yellow) replacements for you to swap out for different environments. It also comes with one extended magazine which compliments those with larger hands very nicely. The trigger has a crisp, clean break after you take up the small amount of creep, and the reset is just as short and quick. The Springfield XD-S 9mm weighs in at about 23 oz., which isn’t too bad. And lets not forget the back-strap safety which is great added feature to mitigate against accidental discharge. This means your hand will have to be physically gripping the gun for the trigger to be able to engage and actually fire. Overall the Springfield XDs 9mm is an excellent choice for concealment and carry for purposes of self-defense. Should you decide to go with it, the Springfield XD-S Essentials Package definitely gives you a truly outstanding bang-for-your-buck. Click here for full Specs.

The M&P Shield from Smith & Wesson

Smith and Wesson M&P Shield

Smith and Wesson M&P Shield

The Smith and Wesson M&P Shield has undoubtedly solidified a foundation for itself as one of the premier sub-compact pistols for carry and concealment and self defense. Available in both 9mm and .40 S&W, it is ideal for anyone seeking that extra bit of security in less than favorable environments.

Smith and Wesson M&P Shield

Perfect for Concealment

The Smith and Wesson M&P Shield consists of a slim-lined single-stack frame that is just shy of 1” wide, and the short 3.1” barrel is ideal for close proximity self defense applications. This also means that the imprint it leaves under your clothing is almost non-existent. The Lower Receiver is polymer-based and extremely light-weight. The pistol grip contains both front and rear rough contoured grip pads that are designed to enable shooters to maintain a good positive grip while firing. One of the great things about the pistol grip is that its ergonomically angled and molded into the lower receiver so the the overall profile height and center of gravity sits low in your hand. This grip position is designed to mitigate up-and-reward recoil and allows shooters to more accurately re-engage targets with extreme ease and accuracy.

Smith and Wesson M&P Shield

The Upper Receiver is made out of high-quality stainless steel and is coated with a corrosion resistant Black finish.  Along the slide, there are serration grooves that are cut out to allow for a much more positive grip when manipulating the slide during operations. Also, keep in mind that the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield offers 2 different Standard Models – One with the Manual Thumb Safety, and one without. It is important to choose the one that best suites you and your experience, keeping in mind that those that opt for the No Thumb Safety should do so with confidence knowing that the best safety on a weapon is your trigger finger ; )

Smith and Wesson M&P Shield

On a personal note, as an avid shooter and gun buyer myself, I in-fact own a Smith and Wesson M&P Shield, and I can tell you first hand that it is an outstanding firearm, and is extremely accurate. As I stated in the first paragraph, it is ergonomically perfect in my hand (and most hands that I have allowed to shoot it) and the “felt-recoil” is very small. This enables me to apply additional follow-on shots with great speed and accuracy; which is ultimately what you want out of a high quality firearm for self defense.

The other characteristic that makes the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield so accurate is its outstanding trigger. You will find there is very little travel when applying rearward pressure. It also presents a nice, solid and clean break at about 6.5 lbs. and takes almost no distance of travel to reset. One thing that most gun buyers love about the Shield is that this is an economically priced pistol that you can actually modify in the future should you wish to do so. (Like dropping in a lighter more competition grade trigger!) This gives shooters the ability to actually grow and modify their pistols without having to completely purchase a new one.  There is also an abundance of aftermarket sights and accessories that exist for this pistol as well. (Don’t forget to check Gunbuyer.com for supply of extra magazines, night-sights, and lasers). One thing that Smith and Wesson does include with every Shield you order is 2 magazines; one extended 8rd mag, and one flush 7rd mag.

Smith and Wesson M&P Shield

Overall, the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield is ideally suited for gun buyers looking for a small, concealable firearm with an accurate punch. Also, like all Smith and Wessons, it is backed by their lifetime warranty. Kinda’ nice knowing that if anything goes wrong with it over its’ entire lifetime Smith and Wesson will be there to take care of you, right?

This allows also allows for quicker and more accurate shot placement.

Walther PPQ M2

The slide on the Walther PPQ M2 has both front and rear slide serrations, providing a non-slip surface when manipulating the slide. Another great new feature, is the implementation of an ambidextrous slide stop.  And to finish it off, Walther included fantastic three dot adjustable sights that are great for rapid target acquisition.
