Among the most interesting of hobbies is the pursuit of accuracy. Some handguns have it and some do not—the level of accuracy varies widely. I have often mentioned that I do not own a machine rest as I prefer to keep in touch with reality. I do own a couple of devices that help me shoot well such as the Bull Shooters pistol rest.
The new face of Walther is far more than just a legacy of James Bond’s Walther PPK but a company offering real innovation. The company has leapt into cutting edge designs, which some gun buyers get right away like the fabulous little PPS M1 and M2.

Ruger has answered the call with the introduction of the Ruger American Compact in .45 ACP.

At that time, I was one of only 11 editors invited to the unveiling of the secret release of the Glock G43.
