Review: Bushnell Enrage Red Dot

My late summer range days have been spent, in part, behind a new red dot on the market, the Enrage by Bushnell. It’s one of a few red dot optics I’ve shot with. Once I checked the price, it became the first red dot I have gotten really excited about.

Review: Sarsilmaz SAR 9 Pistol

Though not a familiar name on this side of the globe, Sarsilmaz has been manufacturing guns since 1880, when it opened as a small producer of shotguns. Today, in its fifth generation of family ownership, the factory has massive CNC machining capabilities and other modern equipment.
