Just in time for 2017, Springfield Armory is thanking all the Americans who made 2016 such a terrific year with their New Year, New Gear Giveaway. One lucky winner will garner over $1,400 worth of concealed carry gear, including a brand-new Springfield XD® MOD.2 3” Sub-Compact 9mm pistol, holster and training tools. The promotion is designed to outfit the winner with everything he or she will need to go to zero to fully equipped for lawful concealed carry. In fact, the contest offers everything except ammo and a CCW permit!
“To kick off 2017, we wanted to do something above and beyond a standard product giveaway,” stated Chad Dyer, Springfield Armory Creative Director. “We’re committed to empowering Americans to protect themselves and their loved ones, so we were excited to partner with all of these other companies to provide not only all the concealed carry gear that someone will need, but training and practice resources too.”
So what can the winner expect? Of course, to start, there's the pistol, valued at $565, which includes a 13-round magazine and a 16-round X-Tension backup. To carry the XD Mod.2, CrossBreed Holsters is providing the winner with a Concealed Carry Pack, valued at $174.95. The package includes the time-tested CrossBreed Supertuck Holster, a TKB Magazine Carrier and an Executive Black Gun Belt on which to mount the rig. Then there are the training and practice resources. I.C.E. Training is giving the lucky winner the comprehensive Firearms Training DVD Bundle, valued at $115.80. This five-DVD set includes detailed training lessons on Combat Focus Shooting, Advanced Pistol Handling, Combat Focus Carbine, Advanced Skill Development Drills and Defensive Carbine Training Tips.
That's not all! To reinforce new skills learned, partner companies are providing the gear for ongoing practice. The Action Target PT IDPA Practice Torso Target, valued at $339, is one of the most effective training tools for competitive and defensive shooting. For safe and efficient practice at home, Laserlyte is including the Gun Sight Trainer ($120.95) and Rumble Tyme Target 2 Pack ($109.95). The Gun Sight Trainer mounts to the XD® Mod.2 rail and pulses a laser each time the pistol is dry-fired, offering immediate aiming feedback to the shooter. The two Rumble Tyme targets react to laser “hits” with light, noise and movement, just like plinking with real tin cans on the range. The result of this indoor-safe combination is fun, skill-building practice at home.
