CCI's Maxi Mag +V ammunition with Henry Octagon Pump rifle and target

Range Report: The Gallery Gun Reimagined: Henry’s Pump Octagon

The pump action is as American as a gun design gets. While most prolific in just about every modern shotgun, pump-action rifles were, and are still, out there. One of the most prolific was the old Winchester Model 1890 that came in a number of .22 caliber rimfire chamberings. Once synonymous with shooting galleries and small game getting for decades, the pump .22 has fallen by the wayside.

The Anderson Rifle is The World’s Only NO LUBE Rifle!

“The world’s only” is a pretty big claim, but who cares? That is just marketing hype to most. However, the claim of a “no lube rifle” is something you simply have to see to believe. So, when Steve O’Bryan posted a comment on one The Shooter’s Log‘s stories, we were so blown away that we had to give it its proper due and share it here with you (along with a little marketing copy). Here is the full release from Anderson Manufacturing.

Range Report: Rock Island Armory’s Baby Rock Rocks!

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.

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.

Range Report: HK45 Tactical

A few years ago, Heckler and Koch introduced a new handgun design in hopes of achieving a military contract. The HK45 is a viable pistol for use by the Special Operation Command (SOCOM) or any military entity. The HK45 builds upon HK’s slide-to-frame design that features more contact between the frame and slide than most polymer frame pistols resulting in greater rigidity and greater accuracy potential.
