Review: Kimber Aegis II 9mm

Historically, Kimber 1911s have been somewhat of a hit or a miss at times. Kimber’s QC wasn’t the best out there for a stretch, but it does seem as if the overall quality of Kimber guns has been steadily improving since some of the earlier series II small parts gave the brand a bad reputation for a stint. HP guest contributor C.Helm seems to have found a real keeper, and Read More →

Product Spotlight: Armadillo Concealment Shooting Vest

Ask any competitive shooter: it’s very easy to tell when a product was designed by someone who shoots on a regular basis and when it wasn’t. About 80% of the time, that isn’t a compliment. This piece of gear, on the other hand, has more than earned its place in the minority. Not many things have caused as much weeping and knashing of teeth in Read More →

Product Review: SPHINX SDP Compact 9mm

Despite being known for its riddles, the role of the sphinx hasn’t ever been the least bit mysterious; the sphinx has always been the guardian of something. And in this case, the thing being guarded is likely very precious to you. Because it is you.   I was extremely excited to see these guns at the SHOT Show back in January, and shooting them at Media Day was a treat. After all, Read More →

Product Review: G-Code OSH Holsters

G-Code OSH holsters are an affordable and high-quality line of kydex handgun holsters made in Jacksonville, NC. The OSH series comes in either a Standard or RTI model, both of which are offered for a number of different handguns. Additionally, either model is available in a variety of colors and camouflage options, and the fit and finish on both of my OSH holsters is excellent. Read More →

Product Review: Garrett Industries Silent Thunder IWB Holster

About two and a half months ago I decided that I desperately needed a new holster for daily carry. I had been using a Galco Skyops for the better part of two years, and although it wasn’t a bad holster, there were too many things I didn’t like about it to keep using it or recommend it. For one, the clip design and cant adjustment Read More →

Product Review: US Peacekeeper Rapid Deployment Pack

There are a lot of inaccuracies in any show about the end of the world, but one very positive thing about shows like The Walking Dead or movies about natural disasters is the preparedness dialogue that frequently comes about as a result. Just imagine: as you’re reading this, whether you happen to be at home, on the road, or in the office, catastrophe strikes. What would you Read More →

Wilson Combat Ultralight Carry: The First Year

I tend to shoot .45 more than anything else. Call it a cross between a first love and an ego trip from a guy named Colt. Since I became the owner of my beautiful Ultralight Carry .38 Super/9mm Luger combo just over a year ago, I have put about 2,000 rounds downrange through it, with a bit more than half of that being 9mm. It Read More →
