10 New Handguns for 2012 (UPDATED)

10 New Handguns for 2012 (UPDATED)

It's 2012, and despite the impending end of the Mayan calendar, this year is shaping up to be a stellar year for new handguns. Every manufacturer out there is acutely aware that carry guns are the new norm, that we all want something light, powerful, easy-to-carry and not expensive. And that we are more than willing to move down the gun-shop counter until we find what we want. Gone are the days when manufacturers could issue a few new/not-so-new models, call it "done" and wait for us to pony up the cash for something "close enough."


With the best manufacturers now making handguns on all-computerized systems (CAD/CAM to CNC to your local gun shop) the new normal is more handguns than you can shake a stick at. Here's a brief look at eight handguns that will be the topic of conversation in 2012, some we've already heard about and others that were previously just blog fodder and forum rumors.
