Glock 30 Review

Glock 19

The Glock 30 in the legendary 45 ACP offers excellent out-of-the-box precision paired with the ballistic quality of this genuine big-bore caliber. Its compact design and simple operation allow smooth drawing in a 45 caliber pistol. With all of these advantages, especially because of its compact dimensions, the Glock 30 is the first choice of plainclothes officers and security personnel in the US.

Springfield XDS Review

Springfield XDS

The super slim Springfield XDS 45 ACP delivers superior innovation in the palm of your hand. The comfortable design of the Springfield XDS feels so natural that it's like an extension of your own body. At only 1" wide, the XDS fits as perfectly into your concealed-carry strategy, while providing you the the power of a 45 caliber pistol.

Ruger SR45 Review

Ruger SR45

The Ruger SR45 is perfectly sized to be comfortable and controllable-with a slim, ergonomic grip and a narrow slide. The Ruger SR45 has a reversible backstrap and features high-visibility 3-dot sighting system that's windage and elevation adjustable. The ambidextrous thumb safety and d-shaped magazine release are easy to reach and actuate, while an integral accessory mounting rail provides space for mounting accessories.

Sig Sauer P227 Review

Sig Sauer P227

The Sig Sauer P227 is remarkably thin and ergonomic making it ideal for concealed carry. The P227 is similar to the P220 in size, and is able to use the same slide as the P220. What the P227 gains over the P220 is a slim double stack magazine that holds 10+1 rounds of 45 ACP and uses a nicely textured, single-piece, polymer grip which make it great during long range sessions.

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact Review

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact

The M&P Compact 45 caliber pistol from Smith & Wesson features a reinforced polymer chassis, superior ergonomics, ambidextrous controls, and proven safety features. When designing the M&P 45 caliber pistol, Smith & Wesson considered the requirements of military, law enforcement, and home defense from every conceivable angle. No other polymer pistol offers this combination of versatility, durability and safety.

Kahr CW45 Review

Kahr CW45

The Kahr CW45 has the combination of features that makes it one of the best concealed carry pistols on the market. It has the ideal combination of stopping power and shooting comfort, and is smaller, slimmer and lighter than competitive brands. The Kahr CW45 features a natural point of aim and low felt recoil that makes it an ideal gun to shoot and carry.
