I have been exploring a packing handgun for a specific scenario. The bottom line criterion is that the pistol must be completely reliable, accurate enough for personal defense and taking accurate shots at an adversary behind cover, and powerful enough for defense against both biped and quadruped threats. Vehicle penetration is important, and so is penetration against heavy bones.

Springfield Armory makes XD pistols in every popular centerfire caliber, but I have a hunch that the big .45 ACP is their favorite. It’s relatively easy to make a single platform in 9 mm, .357 Sig, and .40S&W, because all three calibers can share a single frame. Tooling up for that one frame design gives the customers three calibers to choose from and saves the gun maker money. Designing a frame for .45 ACP is a whole separate ordeal and doesn’t translate over to any other calibers. You can’t stuff 10mm into a .45 frame or anything like that, so if you want to build a .45 you have to design the gun around that cartridge only. But Springfield not only builds dedicated .45s for every type of pistol they make, they are going a step beyond.
