At the SHOT Show we got to handle the prototype of Kel-Tec’s RMR-30 carbine rifle. Based off of the enormously popular PMR-30, the RMR-30 is designed to take full advantage of the .22 magnum cartridge with a longer barrel on a reliable semiautomatic platform. The model we handled had a full length Picatinny rail with MagPul flip up sights.

SIG SAUER came clean with the 556 and owned up to its Kalishnakov roots with their new 556R. The 556 rifle has always had an AK-style action, which contributes greatly to the reliability of Sig’s rifle platform, but now Sig has released a 7.62×39 caliber version that is compatible with standard AK-47 magazines.
The 2011 Ruling from the California Court, in a dramatic ruling, gave gun owners a win in a National Rifle Association / California Rifle and Pistol (CRPA) Foundation lawsuit. Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Hamilton ruled that AB 962— the hotly contested statute that would have banned mail order ammunition sales and required all purchases of so called “handgun ammunition” to be registered—was unconstitutionally vague on its face.
Arguably the finest service pistol ever made, the original SIG SAUER P210 is a legend in its own right. Capable of shooting a 1″ group at 50 yards, the pistol is highly sought after by target shooters around the world. For more than 25 years, the future has looked bleak for the P210 after production ceased in 1985. But not anymore.

MultiCam was developed by Crye Precision as a universal camouflage adaptable to a wide variety of environments. The reflective nature of the pattern causes it to change apparent color depending on the surrounding environment. Special fabrics and coatings help it blend in under various lighting conditions across both the visible and IR spectrums. The infrared spectrum camouflage makes this pattern effective even when viewed with night vision equipment.
When it comes to preparedness, the items you carry in your pockets or somewhere on you (such as in a briefcase or backpack) are essentially a “bare bones” survival kit.
When Remington calls and asks if you’d like to go down to Argentina to test its newest autoloading shotgun while hunting dove, there’s only one answer, “Yes!” Singer and gun writer Sheriff Jim Wilson got just that opportunity. When he got back, we had the opportunity to talk to him about his experience with Remington’s newest long gun, the 12 gauge Versa Max.
Installing a trigger guard on an AR-15 is probably the step that most often leads to failure for a novice assembling their first lower. Left unsupported, the ears that hold the roll pin, which secures the rear portion of the trigger guard, can easily break off.
