Grand Power K22: SHOT Show 2017

Speaking of underrated guns, Slovakia’s Grand Power — at least in the U.S. of A. — is one seriously underrated brand. Don’t fret if you aren’t familiar; TTAG will be bringing you a few Grand Power reviews soon. Though they make pistols in 9mm, .40, .45, and even 10mm, I’m perhaps most excited to test […]

Gear Review: TTAG’s Rimfire Suppressor Round-Up

Silencer Shop added me to their SOT, which means I can now borrow suppressors from their extensive inventory. In a couple of weeks I’ll be a Texan, and close enough to Silencer Shop’s HQ to also borrow professional dB metering equipment to start producing more meaningful, complete suppressor reviews for y’all. In the meantime, they loaned […]

Gear Review: Q El Camino .22 LR Suppressor

The El Camino is the first silencer to come out of Q, Kevin Brittingham’s new venture. I believe for the first year it will be a Silencer Shop exclusive, and they loaned this one to me for a little quality time. As the Q guys were originally the AAC guys, and the AAC Element 2, which […]

Ammo Review Follow-Up: CCI COPPER-22

We’ve already reviewed CCI’s new COPPER-22, the fastest .22 LR ammunition anywhere, but I left some questions unanswered. What’s the velocity like through an extremely short barrel? A longer barrel? Does it really lose accuracy in dramatic fashion past 75 yards? We headed back to the range to find out. Velocity: I brought the CZ […]

Ammo Review: CCI COPPER-22, the Fastest .22 LR Ever

CCI’s new COPPER-22 advertises that it sends a 21 grain lead-free projectile down range at 1,850 fps. Actually meeting that figure would make it the fastest .22 LR on the market — perhaps ever — by about a 100 fps margin. Designed for plinking as well as for small game and varmint hunting, the non-lead projectiles make the COPPER-22 […]

Gear Review: Primary Arms 6X ACSS .22 LR Scope

March 11, 2014: the U.S. Patent Office approves a patent for the Advanced Combat Sighting System, or ACSS. This novel reticle design combines near-instant, intuitive ranging of human targets out to 800 yards with built-in bullet drop, windage, and running target compensation markings. A full review of Primary Arms’ 1-6X ACSS is forthcoming. But, for […]

Gun Review: Primary Weapons Systems T3 Summit Rifle

SHOT Show 2011: Primary Weapons Systems introduces its T3 Summit Rifle, a 10/22-based, .22 LR rifle with a really slick toggle action (think biathlon gun). It is one of the coolest, sexiest looking rifles anywhere with its carbon fiber tension barrel and sculpted, laminated stock. It’s lightweight, lights out accurate, and whisper quiet when suppressed. Yet, fast […]

Gun Review: Walther PPQ M2 .22 LR

Joe and I both really enjoyed Walther’s PPQ M2 5″ in 9mm. Actually, Joe is still enjoying it since he couldn’t bring himself to return the loaner and decided, instead, to purchase it. Considering how good that gun was, it was clear I had to get my hands on Walther’s .22 LR version of the […]

Gun Review: NAA Mini Revolver

In the world of production firearms, there aren’t many smaller than the offerings from North American Arms. Its Guardian series is about as petite as semi-automatic pistols come, and I believe its Mini-Revolvers may be the smallest production revolvers in the world. There really aren’t many clothing choices — at least ones you can legally […]
