Used guns are a great way to shop for a bargain-priced self-defense pistol. As we accept more modern guns with modern features, like rails, optics, and ambidextrous controls, we can find guns that lack those features for a relatively fair price.
It hasn’t been all that long since we took our initial look at the Springfield Armory Model 2020 Waypoint, the first bolt action for a familiar brand. Why are we back again so soon? Because I stand by my statement it is the best value in bolt actions, so much so that I bought one. And while the Waypoint is absolutely fantastic out of the box, I wanted to push it to its limits with some upgrades.
I went pretty quickly from near-total ignorance of Robinson Arms products to full-fledged fanboy in the space of shooting a few magazines of .300 Blackout in an XCR-L in SBR configuration some time back.

SIG Sauer’s MPX Copperhead is a 9mm pistol. But don’t pigeonhole it with the other handguns you’ve experienced. It’s a versatile firearm that’ll eat anything you throw in it and fit almost anywhere you’d like to keep it.
This week I got the surprise of my life with the XD(M) 45. Not only am in love, we already got married in Vegas.
The M48 Nosler Custom Handgun as a hunting handgun which challenges the hunter. It’s also a lot of fun to shoot, once you get used to it.
The cap and ball revolver, also known as the percussion revolver, is a sophisticated weapon of war. Even though those wars were in the 1800’s, the cap and ball remains an interesting and effective handgun.
