Gun Review: H&K VP9SK

Back in the day, I ran economic development for Texas. Convincing firearms manufacturers to move or expand in The Lone Star State was one of the favorite parts of my job. I didn’t think H&K would ever be one of my targets. But then, lo’ and behold, there I was, sitting in the Governor’s office with the CEO of […]

FN USA has released a series of its full auto firearms used by the U.S. Military to civilians in semi-automatic models. The FN 15 Military Collector M4 is their release of the current U.S. service rifle, also made by FN in South Carolina I got ahold of one to see how closely it matches the […]

And then I shot the new full-sized Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0 featured in RF’s recent review. For all intents and […]

Taylor’s & Co. Firearms Compact 1911 in 9mm

At fist glance, the Taylor’s and Co. Compact 1911 closely resembles the WWII-era Government models. Only three-quarters the size. The Parkerized finish, the GI thumb safety, the sights and mostly bare slide give the gun a traditional look and feel. The extended beavertail grip safety is a slight departure, but one that’s much appreciated on the […]
