USA -(Ammoland.com)- In a recent article, Gun Test magazine claimed that the compact 9 mm single-stack pistol is the most popular carry gun in America. That same article also claimed that the Honor Defense Honor Guard was the most accurate of four guns tested.
In fact, when compared to three other compact 9 mm pistols, the testers stated the Honor Guard Sub-Compact was the most controllable, especially with 9 mm +P loads, and the obvious choice for home defense.
According to the range data, the Honor Guard had a 15-yard average group size of 2.4 inches using American Eagle Syntech 115-grain FMJ loads, a 2.3-inch average group with Hornady XTP 147-grain hollowpoints and a 2.5-inch average group with Black Hills 115-grain JHP +P. The smallest measured groups were 2 inches, 1.9 inches and 2.2 inches, respectively.
“We’ve known for a while that we make the best single-stack, concealed-carry 9 mm,” said Gary Ramey, Honor Defense president. “Now others are starting to realize the proficiencies of the Honor Guard.”
The magazine, which accepts zero commercial advertising, gave the Honor Guard Sub-Compact an overall grade of B, giving it high marks for its extended magazine, sights, ease of takedown and controllability. The Honor Guard had zero failures to feed, chamber, fire or eject in testing. The testers also like the texture on the grip, which made shooting the Honor Guard comfortable and easy to grip, calling it, “a natural pointer.”
The Honor Guard is available in 3 different grip sizes and 2 different barrel lengths. All versions have an integrated Striker Block, also available with a Manual Thumb Safety.
