Last week, I recorded a little workbench review on the Desert Eagle Mark XIX (.44 Remington Magnum) and I decided to do another one. In this workbench review, we take a look at the Springfield Armory XD-S chambered in .45 ACP – which was my very first firearm and also my everyday carry weapon for quite some time (although I am now in the process of selling it).
As one can probably tell from the video, I tend to prefer larger double stack pistols for concealed carry. However, smaller single stack micro pistols and pocket pistols do have a place for self-defense and concealed carry. Sometimes, it’s just not practical to carry a full-sized pistol and some folks find larger handguns to be too bulky or heavy to carry all day – and that is okay. Better to carry a single stack subcompact or micro-compact pocket pistol than to not carry one at all if one finds themselves in a situation where the use of one is necessary. I just recommend that you spend time training with your carry weapons in order to be proficient with their use in stressful situations. Refer to my blog post on selecting a firearm for concealed carry for more information.
Have video idea or topic for me to weigh in on? Send me a note and let me know what it is.
