On April 11, 2014, the United States Postal Service inducted actor Charlton Heston as the 18th “Legend of Hollywood.” The stamp featured a colorized shot of the actor in his Ben Hur costume. Members of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia, however, have an even more iconic image of Mr. Heston, from May 20, 2000 at the NRA’s 129th convention. That’s when the NRA President closed his speech by picking up a replica Kentucky rifle and stating . . .

SIG SAUER developed the P226 series of pistols for submission to the 1984 XM9 Service Pistol Trials.
