Glock 17M: The “Inside” Scoop (Photo Documentary)

This probably isn’t the first Glock 17M you’ve seen. But no one has covered it yet in the detail we wanted to see…photographically speaking. Obviously, Glock hasn’t taken these guns to any shows yet…and who knows if a any might show up at NRA next month or not. We’re guessing no based on SHOT Show and we would love to be wrong. But in the meantime, Read More →

New Product: Wilson Combat EDC X9 is Xceptional

When I found out that Wilson Combat was planning to release a double stack gun, my first thought was inevitably something along the lines of a 2011. And they’re nice, but I don’t really need one of those. It’s hard enough keeping enough mags for everything when each and every one doesn’t cost a fortune. But I should’ve known that Bill Wilson and the crew at Read More →

SHOT Show 2017

Follow along here as we add more photos and news from SHOT Show 2017! From the time you board the plane to Vegas that’s full of more 5.11 pants and shirts with the word molon on them than you can count until the day it’s wheels up to go back home, it’s easy to start conversations and guess exactly who is out here for SHOT Show.

Spec’ing Out a Suppressed Pistol (Featuring ROBAR, SilencerCo)

Exploding in Popularity Suppressors are on the rise in the U.S.— it’s undeniable. From 2010 to 2015, the amount of legally owned suppressors in civilian hands rose from roughly 285,000 to more than 790,000. Considering they’ve been legal for a lot longer than five years, that kind of data bears out the fact that silencers/ suppressors/ whatever you want to call them are exploding in popularity (bad Read More →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Product Review: HK45 with Sand Slide/Frame

Heckler and Koch is not known for cutting corners. Take one look at social media and you’ll see how much success they’ve had with the hashtag #nocompromise. That doesn’t happen unless there’s actually something to it. By the time SHOT rolled around this past January, the VP9 was still a hot item but it was old news. It had made enough waves by then to Read More →
