Springfield Armory's Duel 3 in Full Swing

DUEL3_F

Get in on this, guys and gals. Springfield Armory's going wild.

Sept. 19 marks the company's third duel in their Duel 3 promotion. In this firearm face-off, Springfield's new 4-inch XD Mod.2 is going up against the 1911 LW Champion Operator. Which one do you think will win?

0919 - Week 3 Duel


The company's deemed Sept. 16's Duel 3 promotion as "Wild Wednesday," and it gave away 25 brand-new Springfield XD-S 4-inch .45 ACP handguns, totaling more than $14,000. On Sept. 23, Springfield will hand out 50 more of its 4-inch XD-S pistols.


This promotion marked the halfway point of Springfield's Duel 3 giveaway, which is the largest gun giveaway ever offered.

"To date, we've given away almost $63,000 worth of product," said Chad Dyer, marketing manager for Springfield Armory. "Basically, we wanted to give our customers a chance to have some fun, and we wanted to reward them. We also wanted to integrate other manufacturers, and they seemed pretty excited about it."

In addition to the XDs, winners will also receive a Pro-Shot universal cleaning kit.

In addition to the giveaway, Springfield is also sponsoring its Gear Up & Go promotion, which runs until the end of December 2015. Any purchase of a Springfield XD, XD Mod.2, XD(M), XDS or 1911 handgun will include a free two extra magazines, a dual-pistol range bag and a double-mag pouch.


To register in Springfield's Duel 3 giveaway, go to DUEL.Springfield-Armory.com. Springfield's weekly "duel" allows participants to vote on a head-to-head comparison between two Springfield pistols. Votes are allowed once per hour, and each vote increases a person's chance to win one of Springfield's prize packages.

The promotion runs until Sept. 25, and next week will include the following prize packages:

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
