I am asked about rifle scopes and red dot sights often. Which one should I buy, is just under who should I marry in the overall importance, and very hard to answer for another person. When you add that the student doesn’t know exactly what they are going to do with the rifle scope, the answer is even more elusive. The bottom line is the budget.

I have noticed that discussions on combat sights, combat shooting, and handguns are often hi-jacked by those with an embarrassing lack of experience. All they know is what they have read and much of that isn’t accurate. A shooter should study, true, but they should also gain practical experience and meet the instructor half way with this experience.
I have used Del Ton rifles over the years and found they have good build quality, good reliability, and more than acceptable accuracy. When I was looking for a quality AR-10-type rifle in .308 Winchester, I looked to the DTI rifle. While I was eager to jump into the .308 AR, I was well aware of the lack of standardization with the rifle.
Sometimes you just get excited no matter how long you have been at this game, and no matter how many air guns you have handled and evaluated. The right one can still strike a happy chord. The Spartan 1911-type airgun is among the most distinctive airguns I have ever handled. It is modeled, like many others, after the real thing, SIG’s 1911 .45 caliber Spartan.
When I learned Ruger planned to introduce an upgrade on its successful gas impingement rifle, I was very interested. The AR 556 is a reliable and accurate rifle—possibly the best buy in its price range.
When it comes to shooting pastimes, they can get expensive, quickly. My handguns are rugged and reliable for the most part, but competition shooting may become expensive in both time and money. It sometimes becomes a race for the best equipment, not taking anything away from the skill involved.
It’s not much of a secret or news, because the same trusted TruGlo sights that are worn daily on previous Glock models fit the Gen 5. Here is the full release from TruGlo.
Preparing for personal defense scenarios on a brightly lit range, and firing against one-dimensional targets that are squared to you, isn’t combat practice. At best it is a beginner’s exercise in controlling the trigger and sight alignment. However, gunfights occur in dim light. Are you ready for action?
Ruger has expanded its line of 1911 handguns considerably since the introduction of the original SR1911 a few years ago. There is a steel frame Commander version, lightweight Commander .45, and now an SR1911 9mm Commander. These handguns have proven to be reliable, accurate, and a good value. They are service grade and deserve the attention of anyone interested in a quality 1911 handgun.
The AR-15 is America’s rifle in a very personal and individualist way—and in a manner no rifle has been since the Winchester ’73. The AR-15 may be modified, adapted, and built from scratch to suit the user. The rifle can be surprisingly affordable, or it may be as expensive and extensively modified as the user wishes. The rifle that was built as the subject of this review is in the middle of the road for expense, but at the top of my list for performance and versatility.
For practical use, there are several types of shotgun sights. In iron sights, these include the bead, aperture or ghost ring sight, and rifle sight.
The picture perfect sight picture and sight alignment only exist on the bench rest. In a combat situation, the perfect sight picture is elusive.
Picture this, you and a hunting buddy are staring down a group of wild hogs. You’re close enough that you speak in hushed voices. “See the bigger one towards the left? He’s mine. No wait, he’s moving right. What do you mean you want the one in the middle? Mine is in the middle now….” Suddenly the idea of a laser
Ruger’s initial offering of a piston operated AR rifle, the SR 556, was a good rifle but an expensive rifle. The SR556 is also heavier than the standard AR-15. The gas piston design has proven popular but Ruger chose to offer a standard gas impingement operated AR-15-type rifle in the entry-level price range. Here is a tip,
During most of my shooting life, I’ve trusted Colt handguns, and the very few AR-15 rifles I’ve deployed have been Colt AR-15s. From the HBAR to the SOCOM carbine, these rifles have given excellent service.
When it comes to selecting an optic for your boomstick, there are so many quality options that many simply throw a dart at a list, ask a friend, or buy whatever is cheapest. TruGlo would instead
