We tested four new 40 S&W subcompact handguns: Springfield XD-S 3.3-inch, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, Kahr's CW 40, and the Taurus G2C, along with a used SIG Sauer P224 SAS 224-40-SAS2B. Which one was the clear winner?
Tested: Iver Johnson Hawk, Taurus 1911 Commander, Kimber Pro Carry SLE, and Desert Eagle's 1911C. Three of the handguns were worth their price. One had defects that knocked it out.

During his speech to the 2019 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum in Indianapolis last month, President Trump announced that he would "unsign" the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. He then signed, in front of all in attendance, a formal letter to the Senate requesting that it halt the ratification process and return the treaty to the Oval Office, where President Trump would "dispose" of it. OMG, I can't wait to see what PDT "fires" next.
The ban on possessing an LCM has been unenforceable since June 29, 2017, when this same court issued a preliminary injunction preventing the law from taking effect while the parties litigated the merits of the case. And because CA DOJ is seeking a stay only as to the provisions allowing for acquisition of new LCMs, the injunction against the possession restriction should remain in effect for the time being. That said, people should stay tuned to legal alerts to be updated of any changes. Also, lawfully acquired LCMs can be lawfully used.
