Gear Review: Suarez International Flat and Straight Patrol Grade Trigger for GLOCK

Even the most die-hard GLOCK fanboy has to/should/must admit that Gaston’s motto of “perfection” doesn’t include the triggers in his guns. That said, arguably, the standard-issue GLOCK gas-pedal is one of the better triggers in the striker-fired cohort, if not the best. Though there’s a long take-up, the break is reasonably crisp, and there’s plenty […]

Gear Review: Huntego CleanShot Shoot-Thru Bore Cleaner Shells

Pull the trigger on one of Huntego Limited’s CleanShot shoot-thru bore cleaning cartridges and that’s it; your 12 gauge bore is clean. With different layers of scrubbers and patches and 9,600 psi of outward pressure, it’s supposed to remove carbon, lead, plastic, and other fouling and debris. First I needed a dirty barrel, and my over-under […]

Gear Review: Champion Workhorse Electronic Trap

Busting clays is a blast (no pun intended)! But if you’ve used one of those spring-loaded manual traps or the hand-held plastic whip things, you know the definition of frustration.

Gear Review: TANDEMKROSS hiveGrip for SW22 Victory

Smith & Wesson’s SW22 Victory is a great .22 pistol. Robert gave it a four-star review, withholding that coveted fifth star due to the SW22’s slippery grip. With removable grip panels, however, that slick handle isn’t a permanent feature. As with almost all things gun, you can expect the aftermarket to step in. Cue the […]

Gear Review: Maven S.1A Spotting Scope

My first exposure to Maven was at the Gunwerks L201 Advanced Long Range Shooting Course (reviewed here). On the range, helping us spot out to 1,440 yards, were half a dozen spotting scopes from a well-known manufacturer plus one standout I had never heard of. One look through it and I knew I had been missing […]

Gear Review: DI Optical RV2 Red Dot Optic

Reader Brian P. writes: Who — or what — is DIO? It’s the US arm of Dong In Optical (hold the jokes, please), a Korean manufacturer of optical aiming accessories for the military, law enforcement and civilian markets. If you haven’t heard of the company, you’re hardly alone. But given the quality and affordability of their […]

Gear Review: Lyman Auto-Advance Target System

As first world problems go, walking downrange to change your targets is pretty horrific. Trekking hundreds of yards in Texas in late July battling heat and snakes? Fuggedaboudit! Thankfully, Lyman has come to the rescue with the Auto-Advance Target System. This sweet piece of kit changes targets remotely and works out to 200 yards. Joking […]
