Range Report: CZ’s Polymer Pistol — The CZ P-10C

I have considerable experience with CZ pistols, from the original CZ 75 to the CZ P-01 and other variants. But nothing prepared me for the experience of handling and firing the newest CZ pistol, the CZ P10-C. It isn’t radical in design and technology, but it is different from anything CZ has done before.

Review: Walker Game Ear Razor Electronic Muffs

Despite its thin profile, the Razor series is rated for a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 23 dB. That equates to about a 400% sound reduction at the ear. The Razor Patriot is powered by two “AA” batteries to operate the Omni-directional microphones and HD speakers featuring a .02-second reaction time. Like all headphones, a proper fit is necessary, but not all headphones are the same. Read the full review to learn how the Razor performed at the range.

Review: Traditions Liberty Single Action Revolver

I have been very happy with Pietta clones of the SAA, and when I saw the looks and price of the Traditions Liberty, it was love at first sight. The revolver features a beautiful blue finish. The engraving is nicely done with an appearance similar to acid etching, but the laser engraving is not as deep as old type German style engraving—and it costs a fraction of the original.

Range Report: CZ 455 American Rifle

The CZ 455 American is easily one of my favorite rifles of all time. However, when I opened the box, my first thought was, “I am so lucky.” The stock on the new CZ 455 rifle showed excellent fit and figure. CZ rifles are never bad, but this was an exceptional piece. Looks are important, but performance is the essence of a Range Report—the CZ 455 American did not disappoint.

Review: SIG Sauer Big Bore Defense Loads — .44 Special and .45 Colt

SIG Sauer is expanding its line of personal defense loads with two accurate and effective loads in .44 Special and .45 Colt. Each of these loads offers good accuracy and a clean powder burn. Muzzle flash is limited. Recoil is modest. For anyone owning a new revolver in these big bore calibers or those owning an older revolver they wish to press into service, these are good choices.

Ruger’s First-Class .223: The Mini-14 Rifle

Your .223 does not have to be an AR-15. After all, the U.S. Army chose the M14 over the original AR-10. Classic handling means a lot. Read this post to learn why the author loves his older model and the new one.
