Did you know Henry Repeating Arms has a pump action? Enjoy this video review of a new classic.
There has been a revolution in rifle making, and all of us have benefitted from it in one way or the other—if we own and shoot modern rifles.
Walther’s new PPS M2 is an excellent example of the refinement Walther brings to conceal carry pistols. The original PPS Classic ushered a 9mm conceal carry pistol that was thin, polymer framed with modular backstraps, and a striker fire trigger. The M2 does the Classic one better
Heckler and Koch’s list of innovations is a long one. The first polymer-framed handguns is most certainly at the from of the list.
After many years of shooting, training, and carrying the most effective handgun possible, I realized that many of my choices were not practical for the average shooter. There are many demands on their time and mastering a Commander .45, .357 Magnum revolver, or compact .40 is difficult. Compromises are inherent in the game. The happy medium between a service-size pistol and hideout derringer is often a quality self loader. The .380 ACP is a popular choice.
Does anybody buy brand name anything anymore? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t bought an actual bottle of Heinz ketchup since I found out that the “great value” store brand is literally packaged in the same facility. The analgesics in my medicine cabinet read ibuprofen and acetaminophen rather than Advil or Tylenol. So, the question is, why not guns?
Are you of the mindset who wants something just a bit smaller and more concealable? Perhaps a little smaller than local law will allow? If you are, Mossberg has just announced you next shotgun. Officially classified as an AOW (Any Other Weapon) Mossberg’s new 590A1 and 500 Compact Cruiser are perfectly proportioned.
I came to the Kel Tec PMR-30 in a different manner than I would have thought. My experience with the CMR-30 carbine solidified my confidence in the company and gave me an appreciation of the .22 Magnum self loader. When I had the chance to obtain a PMR-30 pistol, I did not hesitate—and you shouldn’t either!
Among the most enduring icons of the American West is the Single Action Army. This revolver is second to none in historical appeal among American shooters. Used by Wyatt Earp, Frank Hamer, and Lawrence of Arabia, the Colt .45 was the gunfighter’s gun of the century.
Two new models of Heckler & Koch’s VP striker fired pistol have been added to the company line-up this summer. New Flat Dark Earth (FDE) colored frame variants and threaded barrel “Tactical models”join the renowned VP family of 9mm and .40 caliber pistols.
Ruger is an old line maker that has offered quality products at a fair price for more than 68 years. Although Ruger was late getting into the 1911 market, it introduced a short slide 1911 handgun, the SR1911 that has earned an excellent reputation for reliability, accuracy, and value.
SIG Sauer’s 1911 C3 provides the knockdown power shooter’s demand in a package size shooters wish for. After all, we all want
Among the most reliable and battled tested handgun designs of all time is the Russian Tokarev. It simply doesn’t get the respect the 1911, Browning Hi Power and CZ 75 do, yet the pistol is always reliable, accurate enough for personal defense, and chambered for hard hitting cartridges. Century International Arms Zastava M88 continues the tradition.
Step up and take notice! Stevens pump-action 20 gauge now comes decked in Muddy Girl Camo for the perfect blend of performance, camo and a splash of pink.
A few decades ago, a startup company resurrected a revered name in firearms. Springfield Armory Incorporated has since prospered. Today, it is regarded as an old-line company by younger handgunners. Considering the conservative nature of shooters, this is quite an accomplishment. Springfield began its climb to the top by offering a good product at a fair price. The Range Officer now continues the tradition.
Stevens, well known for its previous shotgun offerings, has proudly offered its first semi-automatic shotgun, the new 12-gauge S1200. The S1200 provides reliable, inertia driven semi-automatic performance at an attractive price.
When the Glock pistol was introduced, like many, I was skeptical of the polymer-framed pistol. I had positive experiences with the HK P9S 9mm and did not regard polymer as cheap—far from it. The HK was an extraordinary pistol. Rigorous testing and experience removed skepticism.The Glock was a reliable, affordable, and durable service pistol chambered for the popular 9mm Luger cartridge.
