What Sort of Man Carries a GLOCK?

You’re probably too young to remember Playboy’s ad campaign “What sort of man reads Playboy?” Hell, you’re probably too young to remember Playboy. It was (is?) a magazine featuring heavily retouched pictures of naked women with written words that allowed pre-Internet males to claim “I read it for the articles.” An assertion so absurd that […]

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.

Walther’s aiming to fix this with their new-for-2018 PPQ Sub-Compact . . . It’s everything shooters like from the PPQ, but less filling. Not that […]

Palmetto State Armory MP5 Clone Revealed

Palmetto State Armory (PSA) is working on an MP5 clone. The demand is there — price dependent (as always). So I had corralled a PSA rep at SHOT Show and asked about the rumor that PSA’s MP5 will run around $600. Nope. #aintgonnahappen. Nor should it . . . Building a reliable MP5 is much […]

NSSF: Unload Your Gun Before You Get in Your Car
