Review: Walther Creed 9mm Pistol

The new face of Walther is far more than just a legacy of James Bond’s Walther PPK but a company offering real innovation. The company has leapt into cutting edge designs, which some gun buyers get right away like the fabulous little PPS M1 and M2. Other designs are a bit tougher to understand for the seasoned shooter… that is until they handle them.

Range Report: Smith and Wesson Victory .22 Pistol

Smith and Wesson’s Victory .22 has garnered a lot of interest since its introduction a few months ago. The Victory .22 is intended to compete with similar .22 calibers handguns such as the Browning Buckmark and Ruger Standard Model. As such the Victory will have to have good features, good reliability, and acceptable accuracy. The price point is also important. Smith and Wesson’s previous .22 caliber self loaders were not in the class with this pistol and the hopes Smith and Wesson has pinned on this pistol are not without justification.

Range Report: Glock 35

I have previously stated that the long slide Glock is a good special team pistol for use by agencies that issue Glock pistols. However, the long slide Glock is also a great home defense and competition pistol. For those who can conceal the piece beneath covering garments, the Glock long slide is a viable defensive handgun. In the proper caliber, the pistol is also useful for hunting thin-skinned game.

Good Quality with a Fair Price: The Desert Eagle Commander 1911

There continues to be new introductions into the 1911 market. Without good quality, at an affordable price point, a new 1911 will fail to sell. One priced mid-range without cutting corners on quality is the Magnum Research Desert Eagle 1911 Commander. The 1911C is built to strict standards and nothing we can see contradicts that statement. Shooting a variety of cheap .45 ACP ammo to the best in self-defense jacketed hollow points, the Desert Eagle 1911 Commander is worthy of going into anyone’s arsenal.
