long_slide_9mm_pistolThe market for compact handguns is booming, but a growing number of guns are also going the other direction.

Long slide handguns are traditionally considered competition firearms for IPSC, IDPA and 3-gun contests, as their additional length offers improved accuracy and increased velocities. We’re also seeing a number of non-competitive shooters buying long slide guns for target shooting and home defense.
