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: South Texas Arms STA-15 Apex HD Rifle

Reader Matt Magliacane writes: Being a newcomer to the world of Eugene Stoner’s rifle, I wasn’t interested in building my own. My concept of a rifle had always included parkerized steel wrapped in walnut and replete with “character.” But I was looking for a rifle that would be cheaper to shoot than a .30-06 (to relax […]

Gun Review: Grand Power K22 X-Trim

[reviewadinsert] Grand power of Slovakia is not a particularly popular pistol manufacturer in the U.S., but they should be. They make some excellent pistols, including the best full-size .22 I’ve ever shot: the Grand Power K22 X-Trim . . . The X-Trim’s full-sized polymer frame feels as solid as a duty pistol.

Gun Review: NAA Ranger II Top-Break Mini Revolver

I’m an unabashed fan of North American Arms’ Mini Revolvers. Heck, I had a custom cowboy hat holster made for one of mine. So you can imagine how excited I’ve been to get my hands on their Ranger II since they announced its impending arrival over two years ago. Well, I finally got one! And […]

I’ve fired thousands of rounds of every type of ammo imaginable through my FDE P-10 C, including 10 rounds with […]

Gun Review: Kimber Micro 9 Raptor 9mm

My first everyday carry pistol was a Colt Government .380. By the time I was old enough to carry it, I’d forgotten where it came from. So I took it apart and discovered it was a modified U.S. Government-issued firearm. That made it a collector’s piece, which turned out to be a blessing. Because collector […]

Gun Review: B&T GHM9 9mm Pistol

According to B&T’s website, “We are producing weapons, accessories and suppressors for police, military, special units, and some qualified private shooters.” Here in the U.S., most of B&T’s Swiss-made guns hover around the $2,000 mark. So whatever qualifications B&T had in mind, add the word “financially.” That’s a lot of money for a non-competition oriented pistol. […]
