Gun Review: NAA Guardian .380

My father once refused to listen to a pop song. “I stopped listening to new pop and rock in the 60’s,” he declared. “I just listen to country music now.” Whenever I’m in a situation that calls for an open mind, that childhood memory pops into my head. So when Jeremy handed me the NAA Guardian — an […]

Gun Review: Howa 1500

While browsing the discount section of a local gun store I stumbled upon a Howa 1500 in .300 Winchester Magnum. I had been wanting to add a .300 Win Mag to my collection, and 40% off an already-low MSRP was too good a deal to pass up. Howa-bout a little history? Howa is a Japanese […]

Texas LTC Renewal Fees Suspended for Counties Hit by Hurricane Harvey

As Hurricane Harvey approached Texas, thousands of Texans rapidly evacuated their homes. In addition to losing their homes, they also lost possessions and irreplaceable family heirlooms. Some Texans lost or damaged their License To Carry cards, too. In response, Texas Governor Greg Abbott  has temporarily suspended LTC replacement fees for anyone residing in counties that […]

Mod Zero Announces the M-Zero Scope Mount

When Luke Yost bought an ACOG he decided he wanted to be able to move his new optic between a couple of rifles. Luke was busy studying material science at MIT and didn’t have the time to re-zero his optic so he did what any enterprising MIT student would do. He started his own company […]

Gun Review: Ruger 10/22 Target Rifle

Ruger’s ultra-popular 10/22 is fun, reliable, handy, fairly accurate and one of the most easy to customize platforms in the gun world. I’ve owned three over the years and always regret selling them. But as I became a more proficient shooter I eventually grew out of the standard 10/22 carbine. While the standard 10/22 models are […]

Gun Review: Savage B22 FV-SR .22LR Rifle

The futuristic lines of the Savage B22 FV-SR .22 LR rifle weren’t enough to put one on the set of Valerian or Blade Runner 2049. But the updated bolt gun’s certainly more modern-looking than my three venerable Ruger 10/22s. What intrigued me most about the Savage B22 FV-SR: it includes Savage’s Accutrigger. Is that much-touted bangswitch is all […]

Obscure Object Of Desire: Engraved Mauser C-96

I recently found myself in Fredericksburg, Texas (a short drive from TTAG’s secret above ground bunker). I remembered a Jon Wayne Taylor article on a gun store in “Fritztown”: Texas Jack Wild West Outfitter. I decided to test my girlfriend’s patience and stop in. I’m glad I did . . . Texas Jack has an engraved pre-war […]

SHUSH Bill Introduced in Senate Would De-Regulate Silencers

Senators Mike Lee (above) and Mike Crapo (below) have introduced the Silencers Help Us Save Hearing or SHUSH bill in the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body. If enacted, SHUSH would go a step further than current version of the Hearing Protection Act that’s being considered by classifying suppressors as firearms accessories. Here’s Senator Lee’s press release: […]

Silencer Shop Makes ATF Form 1 Easier

The Silencer Shop had made filing an ATF Form 1 for your short barrel rifle/shotgun or silencer easier. For $34.95 plus the $200 Tax Stamp, The Silencer Shop will take care of the necessary paperwork to file a Form 1 with the ATF. According to Nick, NFA processing times are probably going to be declining […]

Gun Review: GSG MP40 9mm

A phone call from my FFL woke me up. “Your special order just came in, it’s a German Sport Guns MP40 in 9mm.” He sounded a bit confused. I rushed down to my LGS to start the 4473. The salesman dragged out a large cardboard box. It was unusually heavy. Much to my surprise, we […]

Gear Review: LaRue Tactical MBT Trigger

When I became a regular shooter I became a trigger snob. Most of my trigger time was spent behind a Remington 700 in 17 fireball (the first and only wildcat I have owned), a well broken-in M14 and a Kimber Custom Grand Raptor. I’d shot plenty of other guns, but not regularly enough to have […]
