SPRINGFIELD ARMORY received TWO 2015 LADIES CHOICE AWARDS for Guns and Gear for the Modern Woman in Las Vegas . . .

NV, Las Vegas 1/22/2015:  

Springfield Armory was honored with two awards, the EMP 9mm and the XD-S 9mm. The 1911 style EMP 9mm is coveted by virtually every person who pulls the trigger. The XD-S 9mm has a more aggressive grip than competitor models making it exceptionally easy for women to securely hold while shooting with only two fingers on the grip. The triggers on both models (although very different operationally) are smooth and responsive. The slide on both models operate so smoothly and you hardly notice any recoil—smooth as butter! Dawn Wehunt, Range Program Coordinator/Dealer Assistance and Response Team (and competitive shooter who had the joy of assembling her own Springfield Armory competition handgun at the factory, beautifully customized in purple), accepted the awards and emphasized, “The EMP is a phenomenal 1911 – it’s the smallest one on the market in 9 mm.  The XD-S . . . has been a huge hit for Springfield Armory and we are very happy to have the ladies vote these two awards to us.”


Dawn Wehunt accepted Two 2015 LADIES CHOICE Awards for Springfield Armory!

Criteria to be considered as a LADIES CHOICE Award recipient include:  a women-friendly company that designs products that actually work well for women, are easy for them to use, perform as they expect, and understands that it is NOT about pink (although customization options are appreciated).  All products are tested first by SFWA Certified Instructors for safety and application; however, it is the thousands of women who participate in 4-8 hour training courses offered by SFWA who determine the recipients. The products selected have proven to be of sufficient quality and design to be selected by women who have made the decision to purchase guns and gear for the purpose of personal protection. SFWA is not paid by any recipient to promote their product(s) as LADIES CHOICE, nor does SFWA represent any of the manufacturers. SFWA does not sell products or receive commissions from the sale of products.  Important note:  Four other well known top selling small concealable carry pistols often purchased for women from two leading manufacturers were in the mix during training and women consistently either refused to shoot them after feeling the recoil and bruises to their hands or sold them to purchase LADIES CHOICE guns. Selections for gear also included popular name-brands that were similarly set aside for LADIES CHOICE gear.
