Gear Review: Caliber Dynamics Tomahawk GLOCK Trigger

I like the feel of a flat trigger, running one on my go-to AR-15, my competition pistol, my home defense SBR and, now, my GLOCK 19 MOS. This adjustable affair from Caliber Dynamics is called the Tomahawk Trigger, and it’s designed to improve the look, feel, and trigger pull quality. The hard coat anodized, aluminum […]

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 […]

Cigar Review: Warfighter Tobacco .50 Cal Garrison Churchill

Thanks to Hurricane Harvey, this past weekend wasn’t conducive to the shooting sports in Austin. I’d planned to review the SIG SAUER 1911 Super Target I received last week. Alas, it remains unfired in my safe. Instead, I took the opportunity to do some indoors product testing, specifically cracking open the sampler package of cigars […]

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. Traditionally, electronic traps have been too large, heavy, and expensive for casual clay busters, but Champion’s Workhorse Electronic Trap has set out to change that. […]

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 […]
