Each year we see firearm manufacturers doing more with less. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the market for concealed carry guns, where we desire the best possible firearm that takes up the least amount of space.
This year is no different, and we’ve seen a host of new carry guns introduced in 2015 offering shooters a lot of bang without taking up much real estate. In some cases existing models have been reduced in size, and in others entirely new handguns have been developed.
Check out several of our favorite new carry guns for 2015 below. Also be sure to look at some other great handguns for 2015.
<h2>Springfield Armory XD Mod. 2 .45 ACP</h2>After introducing the <a href= "http://www.gunsandammo.com/first-look/springfield-armory-xd-mod-2-sub-compact-pistol/" target= "_blank">XD Mod. 2 Sub-Compact</a> in 9mm and .40 S&W for the concealed carry market, <a href= "http://www.springfield-armory.com/" target= "_blank">Springfield</a> has now introduced an <a href= "http://www.gunsandammo.com/first-look/springfield-armory-xd-mod-2-sub-compact-now-45-acp/" target= "_blank">XD Mod. 2 Sub-Compact in .45 ACP</a> for 2015. Although it shares many of the same features as Springfield's previous XD Mod. 2 pistols, the XD Mod. 2 in .45 ACP utilizes a captive recoil spring with a full-length guide rod instead of the dual spring used on previous models to accommodate the bigger cartridge. The .45 ACP XD Mod. 2 also sports a slightly longer 3.3-inch hammer forged barrel, resulting in a 6.5-inch overall length. In addition, the grip width is a touch wider at 1.20 inches. Height remains the same, and all of the other features present on the XD Mod. 2 in 9mm and .40 S&W can be found on the new sub-compact .45 ACP. <br> <strong>Price:</strong> $593 (all-black); $629 (bi-tone)
