Gun Review: Ruger Security-9

Though they’ve been out of production for 30 years, Ruger’s “Security-Six” remains a legendary model, named for its six-round capacity (much like Ruger’s Single-Ten holds 10 rounds). Naturally, Ruger’s new Security-9 holds . . . Well, no. The new semi-automatic pistol holds 15+1 rounds of 9mm. Should we let that slide? . . . A prepper would. The […]

Gun Review: Bond Arms Bullpup 9mm

The Bond Arms Bullpup started out life as the Boberg XR9. TTAG reviewed Boberg’s ballistic bauble back in 2012. We were not impressed. The author’s jam-o-matic experience would soon be shared by Boberg customers. While the design was interesting, the XR9 wasn’t ready for prime time. Enter Gordon Bond . . . Bond Arms makes the […]

Gun Review: GLOCK 21SF

Over the last year, I’ve been helping law enforcement agencies with Tactical Combat Casualty Care instruction, patrols, fugitive recovery and warrant service. One of the departments I work with insists I carry a .45ACP full-size GLOCK 21. So my new duty weapon is the GLOCK 21SF . . . A couple of years ago I […]

Gun Review: FK BRNO 7.5 FK Field Pistol

Imagine feeding a CZ 75 TS and its ammo a steady diet of steroids before sending it to charm school, and you’ll get an idea of what the FK BRNO Field Pistol is all about. This refined bruiser sends a 95 grain bullet downrange at a whopping 2,000 feet per second. Accurately, too. It’ll down […]

Gun Review: Kimber Stainless Ultra Raptor II

Kimber claims their new $38 million Alabama factory will create more than 350 jobs over the next five years. While the Kimber’s tax break remains unspecified, the deal depends on one thing: product. Whether deserved or not, the brand must overcome its rep for producing unreliable firearms to woo disaffected customers and win new ones. […]

Gun Review: Lone Star Arms Performance Tuned KS-12

I’m not a fan of the AK pattern 12 gauge semi-auto shotguns. I reviewed the original Saiga 12 back in 2011; I was not pleased. Last year Kalashnikov Concern released a version of the same firearm called the Kalashnikov KS-12 which fixed some of my complaints. But it still didn’t reliably cycle common ammunition. Lone […]

Gun Review: FN America FN15 DMR II

As we all hopefully know by now, FN America is the current manufacturer of the US Army’s M4 service rifle. You can now buy that rifle in semi auto, as well as the M16A4 version. And now the FN15 DMRII, a quality nod to the US Army’s Squad Designated Marksman Rifles and the widely acclaimed […]

Gun Review: Walther P22 QD

The first generation Walther P22 was my first pistol. I bought it on price and the Walther name. I shot thousands of rounds through the gun — when it worked. To say my P22 was unreliable would be like saying TTAG tells the truth about guns . . . That P22 was picky about ammo. CCI mini […]

Gun Review: Savage 110 Scout Rifle With AccuFit System

One of my biggest complaints with some firearms is that it seems like they were designed to fit absolutely no one. The mechanics are great, but the furniture is designed for either Tyrion Lannister or Gregor Clegane. There’s rarely a happy medium. Savage is looking to change that with their new AccuFit, a highly adjustable […]

Gun Review: FN 15 Tactical Carbine II Rifle

My Combat Rifle students often bring homemade rifles. They always run into issues: malfunctions, broken parts and assorted failures. SMH. I always advise shooters to buy a complete rifle from a reputable manufacturer; a package that includes the trigger, sights, lower and upper and lower receiver, barrel, hand guard and birdcage flash hider. That’s because . . […]

Gun Review: Czech Small Arms Sa vz. 61 Pistol

The Skorpion vz. 61 was originally designed back in 1959. Czechoslovakia put it into service in 1961. Thanks to its iconic top wire folding stock, which resembles a scorpion’s tail, the gun’s often called the Skorpion. It was originally issued to Czech special forces troops, reconnaissance units and security forces. Due to its compact design, it […]
