Range Report: The ‘1911 Commander’ Way

The Colt 1911 Government Model served law enforcement well for a long time. However, there was one complaint—it was too large and heavy for carrying comfortably. Even before World War II, Colt experimented with smaller handguns. With the maturity of aluminum technology, the smaller Commander-sized 1911 was possible. Today, the Colt Commander is built from steel and proves itself an excellent carry gun. Read our range report in this post.

9mm Beretta Nano Review

The Beretta Nano is a sub-compact, striker-fired (Beretta’s first), locked-breech, recoil-operated, semi-automatic pistol. It holds six rounds of 9mm in its single-stack magazine, with one in the chamber—of which will fire regardless if a magazine is inserted or not. There is no magazine disconnect safety. Meaning if the chamber’s hot, the Nano’s gonna fire.The cool thing about the Nano is its interchangeable frame. It has the potential (on paper) to be a great carry gun for women.
