  • 9mm Rimfire Shotgun - Chiappa Little Badger Review
    This week, I've played with a gun that is way outside the norm. From Chiappa, we are looking at what may be the smallest of the Italian shotguns. Ever. When this gun first came up for review, I had no idea what 9mm Flobert was, so don’t feel bad if you have never heard of it either. It is a very common European cartridge but is almost unheard of here in the U.S.A.
  • Touring the CMP: A Look into the First Batch of M1911s
    The National Rifle Association's American Rifleman got the first crack at the Civilian Marksmanship Program's military surplus 1911s.
  • Vortex Spitfire AR Prism Review
    Vortex’s new contender in the 1X arena isn’t even a true vintage style Red-Dot sight at all. It is actually a small one power prismatic scope. It isn’t dependent on shining LEDs, lasers, or fiber optic transmitted light upon a lens to create an aiming point. It has an etched reticle that is present without artificial illumination, though it does have supplemental illumination to aid in low lighting conditions.
  • Tripods - Take Your Rifle Shooting To Another Level
    For military and law enforcement the tripod is an essential piece of kit for situations where the shooter has to be up off the ground to gain a vantage point and yet still be stable enough to make an accurate shot.  For precision rifle competition there exists a similar need for a good, sturdy tripod but selecting the right tripod and attachment system can be overwhelming with so many options on the market now.
  • Faulty, Fabulous, or Fad? An M.D. Argues the 40 S&W
    The .40S&W arose as the indirect result of the FBI’s 1986 Miami shootout. If you aren’t familiar with the details surf on over when you’re done here. Any student of small arms is well served to read up on it. Google is your buddy. During the Miami shootout, two FBI special agents were killed and five wounded by a pair of bank robbers wielding a variety of weapons.
  • NEMO XO Review - Groundbreaking Innovation!
    When the NEMO Executive Order ( XO) came in for review, I was wholly unprepared for what was about to happen. The test model was in 6.5 Creedmoor, which is a plus. Not unique, but not all that common in AR platforms yet either. Still, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to testing
  • Savage Evolution Review - Value Priced Magnum Performance
    It is difficult to say the Savage 110 Evolution is a vast improvement over the 110 Stealth, if only because the Stealth was so good to start with. I reviewed the Stealth chambered in 338 Lapua Magnum last summer, and dollar for dollar, it is one of the best guns I have ever picked up.
  • Check Out the Velociraptor by Aklys Defense: Integrally Suppressed AK
    Aklys Defense is happily teasing their upcoming new gun, the Velociraptor. The Velociraptor is a short-barreled integrally suppressed AK-pattern rifle.
  • Springfield Armory Heavy Operator 10mm w/RMR
    Improving on initial success, Springfield Armory is introducing a new variation of both models. Now, you have the factory option of the Heavy Operator with an RMR pre-installed, cut deep into the slide. I predict another big win, this is the perfect set up for a 10mm 1911.
  • Thompson Center's New Semi-Auto .22 Rifle Takes Ruger Aftermarket Accessories
    One of the cool features of the T/CR22 is that on the last round, with factory mags, the bolt locks open. This is a feature missing from most other semi-auto .22  rifles.
