Atlanta, GA -(AmmoLand.com)- It’s easy to say that a pistol will go through thousands of rounds without a problem-it’s quite another thing to fire thousands of rounds in 2 days. But that’s exactly what Honor Defense does.

In mid-July, Honor Defense began another phase endurance testing its 9MM, striker-fired handguns with Manual Safeties. The protocol includes shooting over 5,000 rounds in 2 days in a single pistol.

“This is reality testing,” said Gary Ramey, president of Honor Defense. “We run pistols until they are too hot to handle. We drop magazines on the ground, and just keep loading and shooting. We want to know pistols perform under realistic conditions and we don’t pamper them. Pistols are tools that must be pushed to the limits and then find ways to improve them.”

Ramey added, “For our endurance testing, it is critical to have consistent high quality ammunition. So we use Sinterfire ammunition. because it is made in America and reliable. Sinterfire is best known for manufacturing lead-free, copper/tin frangible projectiles, but they have ammunition for all types of applications. I use it in my personal carry weapon”

“Our Sinterfire lead-free projectiles can be found in a number of applications, including Federal BallistiClean, Winchester Frangible, Speer RHT, and Hornady Frangible,” said Brandon Graves CEO of Sinterfire. “We also make complete rounds, including the new line created by ex-Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, Team Never Quit Ammunition.”

Looks like a S&W Shield to me.


$500 is not a bad price. However, I will have to have one in my hands to try out before I buy. I like the looks of the grip and the integrated standoff. Looks like the designers were really pushing for the perfect ccw. Rear sight looks like it would work great for one hand racking. I like that the manual safety is an option. However, I did not see an option for a grip safety. Most likely don’t care for a grip safety, but I take advantage of them for safer holstering. I also like that there does not… Read more »
