Nice that the first trigger in your article isn’t carried by CTD.

Top 10 AR-15 Drop-In Triggers for 2018

While we do prefer to cover items we carry, we also include items that are just good for the reader to hear about—even if we do not currently sell them.

That they report on merchandise they don’t sell is proof that they are actually are giving you straight information.


Throwback Thursday: .22 LR Competition Pistols: What to Buy, What Not to Buy

I know it’s a little pricey, but my Ruger Mark IV is “the answer” to disassembly with the one button take down. My Hunter model is a very handsome weapon and has worked flawlessly with my 1st thousand rounds.Keep it clean and lubes and it is hard to beat.

Throwback Thursday: .22 LR Competition Pistols: What to Buy, What Not to Buy

I still shoot my old Ruger standard, the predecessor to the marks. Love it. I guess familiarity makes stripping it no problem.

Throwback Thursday: .22 LR Competition Pistols: What to Buy, What Not to Buy

One newcomer that was not mentioned is the Smith & Wesson Victory .22. I recently purchased one and with the proper ammunition it will put 5 rounds in the X ring on a regular basis. It’s extremely affordable, likes regular high speed .22 hollow point ammo, comfortable to shoot, great sights and is extremely easy to clean.

Review: Smith and Wesson’s L Frame Magnum

I am a retired LEO with many years as a firearms instructor. Our safe will give you a pretty good choice of whatever you might like to shoot.
Last year I purchased the S&W 586 L Performance Center. Seven shot,.357 Magnum, 3″ barrel, with a vent in front of the front sight. It’s been a long time since I purchased a revolver but I am very happy that I made this purchase. It’s a might on the heavy side but fits my hand like glove, shoots great. I do everything double action, very smooth. I changed the front sight to a green FO, white outline rear. The 586 L is just a great revolver IMHO.

Review: Smith and Wesson’s L Frame Magnum

Ruger GP 100 Wiley Clapp version with Novak sights, 3″ barrel and honed cylinder. Very nice choice. An 8 shot with some of these Features, 3″.2-3.5″ barrel and lightened up would be great, especially with a smith action.

The Best Gifts for Dads

I have the B.A.D. lever on my AR. Friends have decried it as a Hollywood gadget until they try it.

Choosing a First Shotgun

I have a Crye Six 12 Bullpup Revolver Shotgun, because of being Wheelchair Handicapped. It’s ~26-inches long and still supports an ~22-inch barrel. There’s a smaller one that can be mounted to a AR/AK style Rifle that supports a ~12.5-inch barrel…

  1. I was having problems with misfeeds with my Ruger Security 9. It was finally determined to have a broken firing pin and Ruger has requested me to send it back to them for evaluation. Has anyone else experienced this problem?? I love my pistol.
