Springfield Down!

There is no malfunction drill for this. Click, no bang. Tap and rack right? Yes, but behold. 

Broken firing pin on the Springfield SA-XD in .40 S&W. 

So do you carry a back up gun? They are mechanical devices after all. They can fail.

I know you are worried about my Springfield and the fact the firing pin is on back order. In fact almost every gun part I have ordered over the last month is so. You may be worried about my 40-fu. Never fear. 

My favorite .40 S&W. When you care enough to send the very best. A Model 4006 and as a bonus if you run out of ammo it makes for a really heavy blunt instrument


  1. Smart man. As Jay G keeps repeating, "two is one, and one is none."

    Well done, sir.

  2. I do not usually carrying a back up gun. I agree 2 is better than one, but it is hard enough concealing one:)

    1. Well I understand. In your case you weigh out about 80 pounds with the M&P soaking wet right?

  3. Yep, tools get used, and they occasionally break... +1 on Rev!
