One of the most challenging things for a new shooter to master is getting the proper grip on their pistol. Being able to acquire a firm grip that feels natural and offers proper support reduces felt recoil and the potential for failure to eject the spent casing. That's why Springfield Armory's recent update of their wildly popular XD pistol, the new XD Mod.2 Pistol, is such great news. It's an entire ergonomic overhaul, featuring a slimmer contoured frame, three separate anti-slip surface textures based on where the shooter's hand engages with the grip, and the company's exclusive "High-Hand Beavertail," which positions the shooter's hand higher towards the barrel's bore axis. This last feature allows for reduced felt recoil, and helps you engage with the pistol the same way every time you pick it up. Available in 9X19 mm and .40 S&W. www.springfield-armory.com
