I’m in FN love. The gunmaker’s SCAR-16 and FNS-9C are my go-to outdoor toy and compact carry gun. At the same time, I’m literally joined at the hip to my Wilson Combat Commander-sized X-TAC. And baby you can drive my Kahr. As my P229 proves, SIG SAUER’s quality is legion. That said, despite the gung-ho video above, I find FN’s brand image a bit waffly. I reckon Wilson Combat’s foray into modified Berettas is a bit tawdry. While I’m over the moon about my Kahr, there’s something a bit disconcerting about its owners’ religious zeal. And Sigue Sigue Sputnik (it had to be said). So my favorite gun band brand is…GLOCK. Whatever else you can say about their guns, the brand has a laser-like focus. As Laibach would say, GLOCKS ARE GLOCKs. What’s your favorite gun brand and why?

The M2 Machine Gun or Browning .50 Caliber Machine Gun is a heavy machine gun designed towards the end of World War I by John Browning. Its design is similar to Browning’s earlier M1919 Browning machine gun, which was chambered for the .30-06 cartridge. The M2 uses the much larger and much more powerful .50 BMG cartridge, which was developed alongside and takes its name from the gun itself (BMG standing for Browning Machine Gun). It has been referred to as “Ma Deuce”, in reference to its M2 nomenclature. The design has had many specific designations . . .
