Glock 27 Review

Glock 27

The Glock 27 is a small, light, accurate, and powerful 40 caliber pistol that so many law-enforcement agencies have issued as their official backup weapon. The Modular Back Strap design of the Glock 27 lets you instantly customize its grip to adapt to an individual shooter's hand size. The surface of the frame employs the scientifically designed, real-world-tested, rough textured technology.

Sig Sauer P250 Review

Sig Sauer P250

The Sig Sauer P250 was designed specifically to address the future needs of the military, law enforcement, and civilian shooters around the world. The P250 is available in 40 caliber, 9mm and 45 ACP.

Ruger SR40 Review

Ruger SR40

With all the features of the popular SR9 and the award-winning SR9c, the Ruger SR40 is possibly the easiest recoiling, smoothest shooting 40 cal pistols on the market. Though remarkably similar in size to the popular SR9, the Ruger SR40 offers custom slide design reduces recoil and slide velocity, making it more comfortable to shoot than many of its competitors.

Springfield XDM Review

Sprinfield XDM

The all terrain look of the Springfield XDM 40 cal isn't about cosmetics, it's about function. The rugged Melonite finish is a salt bath nitriding process that leaves a thick, corrosion resistant, hard surface. The Springfield XDM trigger has the shortest travel than any currently available polymer pistol along with a similarly short reset which keeps you on target with greater ease for faster, more accurate follow up shots.

Kahr PM40 Review

Kahr PM40

The Kahr PM40 40 cal pistol is perfect for use as a concealed carry firearm. The stainless steel barrel and slide on the Kahr PM40 weighs just a bit more than the aluminum alloy or polymer frames of the competition, but it helps ensure that the PM40 will be durable and fire reliably after years of use. The wrap-around polymer grip is comfortable and extremely compact.
