Honor Defense Honor Guard Subcompact HG9SC 9mm Luger

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Honor Guard 9mm is a good-shooting pistol. It was the most accurate in the test and the handgun that was deemed most comfortable to fire. The sights are good, and the other features are well thought out. The trigger is the heaviest of the handguns in the test, which leaves us wondering what type of shooting we may have done with a lighter trigger compression. The only defect was the problematic slide lock, which we found far too heavy.

We like the big, handy takedown lever of the Honor Guard. The frame features a built-in trigger stop.
The Honor Guard features a bright-orange front sight, which allowed for greater visibility when looking at the target.
Spring-within-a-spring technology helps limit recoil.
