New From Nikon: BLACK FX1000 Line of Riflescopes

With a lifetime warranty and high-end glass and features, Nikon is looking to steal a chunk of the long-range optics market with their aggressively-priced BLACK FX1000 line of scopes. If the promises hold true, they’ll be stiff competition for the likes of Vortex, Nightforce, SIG, et al. Stay tuned, as TTAG will be reviewing a […]

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.

This is where Smith […]

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 . . .

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 […]
