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.

After more than 20 years as a lawdog, I learned two things. First, bring enough gun to the fight. Second, keep an open mind. The FN Five-seveN demands an open mind; it is different from anything I have thought of using. The innovative handgun
American Eagle raised the bar in target ammunition with its revolutionary new Syntech lineup. Cloaked in a synthetic jacket that tips conventional range wisdom on its ear, according to American Eagle, Syntech ammo shoots smoother, safer, cooler, and cleaner than anything on the market.
Federal Premium transformed muzzleloader capabilities in 2015 with the B.O.R. Lock MZ System and the Trophy Copper Muzzleloader Bullet. For 2016, that technology expands to include a new hard-hitting lead version. Like its predecessor, it provides outstanding accuracy in a non-sabot design that’s easy to load, scrubs fouling from the breech and ensures consistent bullet seating.
Federal Premium Ammunition has announced the expansion of its Micro HST lineup to include a 150-grain 9mm Luger load. The new 9mm Luger load is specifically designed for short-barreled, concealed-carry pistols. Shipments of this new product are now being delivered to dealers.
There is a tremendous interest in research and development of defense loads for handguns. The majority of offerings use some variation on the jacketed hollowpoint bullet although a new trend is toward bullets that have
The Mossberg MVP is a light rifle with a fluted barrel, flat-bottom forend, smooth bolt action and generous magazine capacity. It’s designed as a sporting rifle for popping varmints, crows, predators and other types of small game. It’s related to the Mossberg Patrol rifle, a similar bolt action designed for law enforcement. The MVP isn’t supplied with iron sights, having instead a Weaver-type rail for mounting an optic.
Personal Defense With Limits
When discussing handguns for personal defense there are arguments put forward that are at odds with the reality I have observed. After several years of university study, and 30 years as an armed professional, I have a rather confined idea of realism. I look for vetted information and demand an internal consistency from experiments and data. I feel that my conclusions are valid.
Forget whatever you previously thought about range ammunition, Federal Ammunition wants to revolutionize range ammo with the introduction of its new American Eagle Syntech. American Eagle Syntech shoots cleaner than traditional ammunition, because the bullet is encapsulated in a polymer. Without the metal to metal contact, copper and lead fouling is eliminated. This not only means more shooting and less cleaning, it leads to longer barrel life too!
American Eagle and varmints spell “fun” any way you look at it. Well, unless you are the varmint I suppose… Varmint hunters like to shoot (a lot), but accuracy matters. Seldom will a song dog wait around to see if your accuracy improves, but a target at the range will. That’s why successful varmint hunters spend plenty of time punching paper too. Fortunately, with American Eagle’s new bulk ammunition packs, it just got a little easier to practice and sight in at the range with the same ammo you’ll be using in the field.
During my time in law enforcement, I chose Federal Cartridge Company for issue loads after a grueling test period in two separate agencies.
