In the last 10 years, a variation of the 1911 pistol has taken over the competitive space and the everyday carry and duty scene. This pistol is the double-stack variant of the ever-popular 1911, known as the 2011.
There are tons of great rimfire firearms out there, so today, let’s focus on rimfire handguns.
What started with a standard 9mm large format AR-type pistol has evolved into the EP45. This is a 45 ACP, large-format pistol. I mentioned it’s ARish, but it’s not an AR-15.
Concealed carry guns have changed a lot over the years. We’ve gone from subcompacts to pocket pistols and single stack nines. Nowadays, the micro compact is in, and today, we are going to look at the top five currently on the market.
The frame of the 92G is a modified M9A1 configuration that features a rounded trigger guard. I find this more attractive than the semi-squared shape that is found on some models.
It’s a Glock. Love or hate them, Glock is the workhorse of defensive pistols in the US and worldwide. Hopefully, the G20 Gen5 MOS lives up to the standard of Glock Perfection.
The Model 66-8 Combat Magnum lives up to the K-frame’s reputation. In my opinion, a .357 magnum is a good choice for self-defense, and I’d prefer to carry the .357 Magnum in a revolver like the S&W Model 66 Combat Magnum.
Overall, I am highly impressed with this Smith & Wesson Performance Center 10mm M2.0 pistol. As a long-time admirer of the value offered by S&W’s other pistols, this model continues to deliver in terms of quality and performance.
Deep concealment handguns are their own separate genre of firearms that include a wide variety of calibers as well as a multitude of operational methods.
There is a simplicity to a striker-fire pistol and the Glock G47 MOS delivers on performance, reliability, accuracy, safety, and ease of use. The G47 performed flawlessly. Point, shoot, repeat. That’s what Glocks do best.
