TTAG Photo Contest Deadline Extended!

I realize a lot of folks believe the .380 is underpowered but I’ve still never […]

A Letter from Gun Control Nirvana

Reader Nick Maunder writes: I have been following TTAG from here in the UK for a while now. What a great website. Keep up the good work. The gun laws here are VERY different to the US. Here in Great Britain the liberals have already got their way. We are already living under the sort of gun […]
