    1873 was a big year in the firearms world. Colt's new single action was adopted by the Army and Winchester came out with their best lever action to date. Originally chambered in .44 W.C.F., aka 44-40, the 1873 Winchester was the most powerful of the lever guns when it was introduced. This was a huge step forward from the rimfire .44 caliber used in the Henry and earlier Winchester rifles.

    Top 5 Budget 1911s

    There is something to say about the fancy pants custom and semi-custom steel frames. But there is also something to say about the other end of the spectrum, the el cheapo 1911s. Love or hate the John Browning design, you can not dismiss its history and longevity. Ones that are made right just flat out work and you don't have to spend $2,000 plus to get one that is made right.

    Ammo Test: Remington's Ultimate Defense 38 Special +P

    Looking for a carry round that will live up to its advertising hype? Yeah--so am I. Companies make some bold claims about penetration and expansion, and these claims get even more elaborate when rounds are engineered for short barreled guns.

    The Truglo TFX is their new tritium night sight. They are glass capsules filled with a glowing radioactive isotope of hydrogen, and they don't need to be charged up by a light source first. They last about 12 years before starting to dim.

    Tritium Night Sights for My XD-S - $127?

    am not one who upgrades guns all that much. But since getting my first set of tritium night sights stock on a Springfield EMP, I decided that this is the one thing that for my carry guns I must insist on adding, if I didn’t procrastinate it forever. My main carry gun, and pretty much only carry gun these days, is another Springfield gun, the XD-S in .45ACP. It is a single stack, two finger grip that shoots like a 3 finger grip, or better. And until now, I had indeed procrastinated putting the night sights on it. When I read about the new TFX tritium sights from Truglo, I had to try them. Everything I have purchased Truglo in the past has exceeded expectations for the money, and these sights were no different.

    I don't suggest that anyone bring a crossbow to a gunfight, but as a survival tool for hunting, killing animals you may have trapped, and possibly taking out intruders under the cover of not a lot of noise, a crossbow is an effective tool.

    A friend the other day asked me if I knew anything about setting up a charitable trust to purchase a silencer. He specifically asked because he’d like one for survival, to be able to get in and get out quietly hunting game on public and private land. My answer is what the heck do you want one of those for when you can get a killer crossbow for about the same price?

    If you are a competitive shooter and have not checked out the SASS, or Cowboy Action, matches you owe it to yourself to do so. Think of it as 3 gun with revolvers, lever actions and double barreled shotguns. I have shot a number of "friendly" cowboy matches and will attest to how much fun can be had while testing your skills. All of the shooters in this sport I have met have been friendly and more than willing to share knowledge and tips to improve your shooting. But you will need a revolver. Here are 5 that will do the trick.

    Within the wide wide world of 1911s, Para has a reputation for excellent performance and affordable pricing. These aren't prissy single-actions, either. Yet Remington has announced that they're taking the Para pistols in house, and mothballing the Para name. How will this change the Paras we know and love? Read our review of the Black-Ops.
