Range Report: Beretta Storm SubCompact 9mm This is my cc weapon of choice. I’m very picky about the feel of a weapon in my hand. I wanted something substantial without being overly large. This fit the bill. I took my cc course with this model and did very good even as a novice. I love the safety features on this gun. It also just looks tough, not all females want the cute little pink camo.
Match Grade Pistols for Carry and Home Defense For 26 years I carried a Colt 1911 always configured to National Match shape but with a ported mag well courtesy of A O Swenson fame. The trigger stop screw was backed all the way back against the front to the trigger. Not good if it gets a flake of powder in there. I switched when I came across the Colt Government Combat 1911. Longer trigger, flat housing ported mag well beveled and nice high solid sights. Came from the factory with everything I felt I needed. I’m 76 now and carried it concealed up till a year ago when Children bought me a Springfield Armory EMP 1911 9mm but a sweet little pistol for me. Everybody is different and has different needs and feelings about what fits them. I have trained lots of Police to Shoot over the years and that became evident. What is right for one is not for another.

The CMP Starts Release of 100,000 M1 Garands! I would love to have an M1. My dad was in the marine Corps in WWII. He was making beach landings and carried an M1. He has always wanted one and I would love to see his face if I could hand him one. He’s 94 years old and as sharp as a razor.
4 Scenarios to Get the Tactical Advantage Good article with the exception of the part about if you’re talking to keep your phone in your support hand. Put the phone away when you’re transiting through an area where you might be attacked. Being distracted talking on the phone takes away from your situational awareness and covers up some of your peripheral vision making you an easier target.
4 Scenarios to Get the Tactical Advantage Right on. Too bad there are so many in the “not trained and do not carry” group. They won’t even take responsibility for their own personal safety! This is an attitude I cannot understand. I guess they live in some sort of La-La Land where nothing bad can happen to them. The hell of it is they don’t leave it at that, they want to prevent us from doing it as well! I think, deep down, it shames them that they don’t have the guts to face reality themselves.
Range Report: Beretta Storm SubCompact 9mm After shooting my brother’s PX-4 Storm compact, I decided to purchase my own for a CCW. I like a little more knock down power then the tried and proven 9mm, so I bought the PX-4 Storm in the Sub-compact 40 S&W cal. I have carried this gun now for two years and LOVE IT for my CCW! It shoots very well with accurate follow up shots.
Trunk Guns After much consideration, I went with the Kel-Tec SU-16. I chose the non-folding stock version because it still fits easily in my trunk and can store 2 10-round mags. This along with two 30-round mags clamped together gives me 80 rounds RIGHT ON THE RIFLE! [BTW, does anybody know of a combat-style sling for the K-T? I can’t find any with a way to attach to the barrel or forend.] Just the ticket for grab-and-go. I had considered a .45 ACP carbine but couldn’t find one that shared magazine compatibility with my 1911. Odd, as the 1911 is so popular. Plus, my environment is the Arizona desert where the ability to reach out beyond 75-100 yards might be a good thing.
Range Report: CZ’s Polymer Pistol — The CZ P10-C Instead of trying to operate the slide have you tried holding the slide stationary and pushing the frame forward works great for me !! ~Pat Joyce
