SIG Sauer Elite ammunition has made a big splash in the market in a relatively short time. These loads exhibit good quality and reliability. Building on SIG ammunition reputation is the SIG M17 9mm +P, named after the U.S. Army’s new M17 pistol. Billed as military grade, this report sought to determine the worthiness of the new M17 +P. Did it make the grade?
The SR1911R is a rail gun affording shooters the option of mounting a combat light. For home defense and other qualified users, the light is a great option. In this range report, Bob Campbell puts the Ruger SR1911R through its paces with a bonus review of the TruGlo’s Tru-Point light/laser combo.
The AR-15 is America’s rifle in a very personal and individualist way—and in a manner no rifle has been since the Winchester ’73. The AR-15 may be modified, adapted, and built from scratch to suit the user. The rifle can be surprisingly affordable, or it may be as expensive and extensively modified as the user wishes.

While the revolver is seen as old technology to some, there are few handguns as reliable and accurate as the short barrel .357 Magnum revolver.
With the dawn of the new millennium, shooters might have suspected an unprecedented level of innovation with regard to firearms. That’s something we’ve yet to see. Not so with ammunition. A few short years ago, factory ammunition was a generalized offering—if shooters needed specialization, they had to handload. Today, that’s hardly the case. Ammunition manufacturers have diversified their offerings more and more every year, and 2017 is no exception. Factory ammunition just keeps getting more varied and better.
