Springfield Armory XDMSpringfield Armory XDM

For the last few years, DefenseReview has received some pretty glowing feedback on the Springfield Armory XD45 (eXtreme Duty 45) .45 ACP pistol. One of the primary aspects of the XD45 pistol that the professionals we've interviewed appreciate is its fully-supported chamber which allows them to fire high-pressure +P and/or +P+ ammunition through it, which they can't do through a Glock 21 (G21) / Glock 21SF (G21SF) or Glock 30 (G30) / Glock 30SF (G30SF) .45 ACP pistols, since they do not have fully-supported chambers. One of these rounds is the LeMas Ltd. BMT APLP 85-grain (85gr) .45 CQB round, which has a muzzle velocity of well over 2,000 FPS out of a 5-inch (5") Government Model 1911 pistol, and will penetrate NIJ Level IIIA body armor (bullet-resistant vest) with no problem and devastate the tissue immediately behind it. "BMT APLP" stands for "Blended Metal Technology Armor-Piercing Limited-Penetration".

 Silver Ruger SR9Ruger SR9

On October 18, 2007, Ruger Firearms introduced a new high-capacity, polymer-frame, striker-fired 9mm pistol called the Ruger SR9 pistol. The new pistol has a capacity of 17+1 rounds (17 in the mag +1 up the pipe). This is welcome news, since DefenseReview happens to like high-capacity, polymer-framed, striker fired pistols in general. We also like the 9mm Parabellum a.k.a. 9mm NATO round (9x19mm), provided you're using quality factory hollowpoints. Why do we like 9mm, because it tends to be less expensive than .40 S&W and .45 ACP and produces less recoil, making it easier to shoot accurately in rapid multiple-shot strings. The lower ammo price and recoil generation make a weapon in this caliber easier to practice with without breaking the bank or your wrist(s) over time. 9mm is simply more pleasurable to shoot, especially if you're shooting a lot. And, with the right factory hollowpoints, it can get the job done for defensive and tactical applications.
