Gun Review: Remington R51 v 2.0, Take Two

After many years (decades?) of concentrating on shotguns and rifles, Remington finally got back into the business of handgun production. Today Remington makes a variety of successful handguns including a slew of 1911s, as well as the duty-size 9mm RP9 and the pocket-sized RM380.

More States Allowing Armed School Staff

It took almost thirty years to enact at least some form of concealed carry in every state in the nation.

Springfield Armory’s Gun Rights Turn-Around

Last year, as the NRA’s Annual Meetings kicked off, I broke the story of Springfield Armory’s back-room dealings in Illinois.
