New from STI: DVC Omni

I got so tired of writing the same thing for STI — great accuracy, spectacular reliability, smokin’ fast, five stars (or thereabouts) — I quit reviewing them. Copy and paste for whatever gun they send me. The thrill was gone. The new STI DVC Omni rekindles my interest . . . STI took fast, accurate […]

The PPQ could well have the best out-of-the-box polymer striker-fired handgun trigger money can buy. So Walther’s new 10 round (15 wth extended grip spare mag) PPQ SC Sub-Compact pistol […]

2018 New Products From Dan Wesson

That’s 2018 the year, to be clear, not that Dan Wesson‘s releasing 2,018 new products. We’ve already covered CZ-USA’s new stuff, so now it’s DW’s turn.
