Product Review: Howard Leight Impact Pro Electronic Hearing Protection

You only get one set of ears. Most shooters know this about their eyes and wear eye protection as a result, but permanent hearing damage is a near-epidemic among older shooters and we do ourselves a great disservice not to protect our hearing. Maybe part of that is the fact that the possibility of instantaneous blindness from a fragment of lead splashing off of a piece Read More →

The Future of Gun Ownership is in Your Hands . . .

*This was originally published in essentially the same form back in July for another publication that I have the privilege of writing a periodic column for. It is certainly dated in that regard. However, in light of current events and the political climate I thought it would be an appropriate reminder. Recent legislative pushes in California even before the tragedy in Orlando illustrated the reason why Read More →

986.1

Smith & Wesson 986 9mm Revolver

When I was handed the task of reviewing the Smith & Wesson 986, I was beyond excited. My last review of a Smith & Wesson product was well-received, so I was ready for my next assignment. I have been reading up on these guns for quite some time and was very happy to finally get my hands on one. My first impression of the 34.9 Read More →

Comp-Tac.1

Product Review: Comp-Tac Belt Feed Magazine Pouch

Most of my favorite guns to shoot are 1911s, and there are good points and bad points to being a predominantly single stack guy. For instance, life is too short to shoot an ugly gun with much regularity, so as a 1911 guy, I avoid that pitfall. But there are certainly times when I am training or shooting when I wish I had more rounds on me. Running Read More →

Louisville

NRA Annual Meetings – Louisville, 2016

I’ve been to quite a few SHOT shows but until this year I had never been to an NRA annual meeting or to Louisville—which truly is the land of bourbon and honey. I’m not sure that Louisville was ready for the massive surge of people that hit the city’s streets this weekend (traffic was a total nightmare for many who drove around), but it was a Read More →

Freedom Munitions.1r

Freedom Munitions 9mm Review (ProMatch and 124 grain New Production)

Admittedly, my very first review of Freedom Munitions back in 2014 raised some questions for me. But over the last year or so, knowing that world class shooters like Janna Reeves, BJ Norris, and Jansen Jones shoot thousands and thousands of rounds of Freedom Munitions each year (presumably without issue, since they tend to do very well in matches) I began to think that it might Read More →

Ruger Precision Rifle Review

I’ll keep this write up short and sweet. This isn’t my gun, I’m not the most skilled long range shooter, and I certainly didn’t shoot the groups in question, but I went shooting some long(ish) range this weekend with some buddies and I just had to give a quick shoutout to the Ruger Precision Rifle system. It is awesome. I don’t need too many words to explain Read More →

Rifle Dynamics: Building a More Dynamic Rifle

I had the privilege of running by the Rifle Dynamics shop a couple of weeks ago when I was out in Vegas, and it was a great visit. Jim Fuller and the crew at Rifle Dynamics take an approach that is refreshingly different than the one taken by most of the businesses just 20 minutes away on the Las Vegas strip. Rather than focusing on glamour and luxury, Fuller Read More →

Wilson Reman.1

Review: Wilson Combat Remanufactured Ammo

Wilson Combat’s ammunition is top-shelf in every sense of the phrase (except the one that involves a certain type of magazine). OAL is always dead on from round to round, consistency has always been ridiculously good out of every gun I own, and accuracy is as good as a given bullet/barrel combo will allow it to be. But you don’t just waste top-shelf things. And so Read More →

LegionSAO.1

Sig Sauer P226 SAO Legion Series

I was perusing the interwebs this morning when I saw a friend’s status calling the new Deadpool movie both “sexy” and “flawless.” Besides reminding me that I really do need to pay the money to see that movie in the theater, it made me realize that both words are appropriate descriptions of Sig’s new Legion Series P226 SAO (Single Action Only). Deadpool needs to upgrade his Deagles to Legions. I know a lot of Read More →
