standard Springfield Armory XD Sub-Compact

The Reliable & Compact Springfield Armory XD


If you don’t believe in love at first sight, you may change your mind when you meet the Springfield Armory XD handgun.

Admittedly, I have commitment issues when it comes to handguns, but this little subcompact quickly won me over.

Not only is it small enough for concealed carry, it’s comfortable to hold, and extremely accurate right out of the box.

The XD sports a trigger safety similar to that of the Glock, but it also comes with a grip safety.

This unique features enables the gun to be fired only when  you have a firm hold on the grip.  It works in conjunction with the trigger safety, because you cannot discharge the XD unless the grip safety is firmly depressed when the trigger is pulled.

Even if you aren’t a fan of sub-compacts, the Springfield Armory XD comes in a size and caliber to meet everyone’s needs.
