A few months back (alright, seven months back), I talked myself into buying a P229 Legion and was planning on writing a review around Christmas. Well… that didn’t happen. Life interfered, I got busy, and by the time I had the free time to write the review… I’d forgotten that I was going to write it. It’s time to remedy that!
In general, I try to post reviews within a few weeks of picking up something. However, when I first bought my XD-S I wasn’t publishing reviews of anything but software and, given it has become my everyday carry, I thought it deserved a review of its own. It’s no secret that I’ve always been a 1911 fan; why wouldn’t I be? The 1911 design is classic. It’s been considered by many to be the pinnacle of handgun design for a century, it’s rugged, dependable and has served our military with distinction in two world wars. But, for all its advantages, it’s simply not designed for carry.
