Walther PK380 vs. S&W M&P380 Shield EZ

Smith & Wesson recently released the M&P380 Shield EZ. It’s designed to be easy to operate, easy to shoot, easy to load, and easy to field strip. And, as reviewed here, they #NailedIt. But Walther’s PK380 has been a fit for recoil-sensitive shooters and for those with diminished hand strength for nearly a decade. So, how […]

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson M&P380 Shield EZ

I bought my HK P7 (which now looks like this) for a screaming good price in early 2012. You see, the older gentleman I bought it from was selling all of his semi-auto pistols, as he could no longer operate them due to arthritis in his hands and generally diminished finger/grip strength. This is where Smith […]

A Tour of Bond Arms in Granbury, TX

Bond Arms makes derringers. And Bullpup pistols, like the one Jon reviewed here. Back in October I visited their manufacturing facility up in Granbury, Texas, about two-and-a-half hours north of me, and found out how the sausage is made . . . Full disclosure, I’m at Robert’s house and he’s fed me far too much […]

Gear Review: Ammo Ears Real Bullet Earplugs

I think we’ve all seen that old codger screw empty cases or live rounds into his ears as “hearing protection” on the range. If only on TV. But now you can hop over to ConcealedCarry.com and get a set of Ammo Ears, which provide 27 NRR of protection built off of actual, 9mm cases. Case […]

BREAKING: Teacher “Opens Fire” in Georgia Classroom

Apparently a teacher in Dalton, Georgia barricaded himself in an empty classroom before firing a shot through an exterior window. We all need our privacy sometimes, but it’s hard to explain this one. More details as they become available. For now . . . It appears one Jesse Davidson, social studies teacher, locked himself in […]

Gear Review: Rugged Suppressors Obsidian45

RF is on the prowl for a .45 ACP pistol suppressor. Narrowing down the list, three cans came to mind: the Rugged Obsidian45, the Dead Air Ghost-M, and the Liberty Cosmic that I previously reviewed (and own). RF wants a modular can with a “K” or short configuration option, so the Liberty is out. As the […]

Gun Review: NAA Ranger II Top-Break Mini Revolver

I’m an unabashed fan of North American Arms’ Mini Revolvers. Heck, I had a custom cowboy hat holster made for one of mine. So you can imagine how excited I’ve been to get my hands on their Ranger II since they announced its impending arrival over two years ago. Well, I finally got one! And […]

Gun Review: CZ P-10 C Suppressor-Ready

CZ’s P-10 C is my favorite striker-fired, carry-sized pistol. I gave it a full five stars when I reviewed it in December of 2016. If anything, my opinion of it has only gone up since. I’ve fired thousands of rounds of every type of ammo imaginable through my FDE P-10 C, including 10 rounds with […]
