Dan Wesson makes some of the finest 1911s on the market. I regard most of their products as highly as those from, say, Wilson Combat, Nighthawk, Les Baer, and others….

I don’t generally care for micro pistols. I carry a Commander 1911 or larger, and I have never had the need for something smaller. Maybe it’s a confidence thing, I’m…

Economics is supposed to make such clean, perfect sense. Heaven knows I spent enough time believing that back in college, studying how purely hypothetical ‘demand’ lines cross with purely speculative…

Walther’s PPQ is currently the top of their pistol lineup, although this 15-round 9mm has street price of only around $600. I have to say I loved its grip design and striker-fired trigger, and even in my frozen hands it ‘rescued’ the hostage target most of the time. (And never killed it, which is probably more important.)

A while ago I decided to get out of the .45 game. Why, you ask? The short answer is it was getting too expensive to shoot. The long answer lies…

 

When Joe Grine and I shot our ‘Muzzle Flip‘ video, my old friend took some heat for the way his old-school Modified Weaver stance didn’t exactly nullify what recoil the SIG P6, Glock 17 and Steyr M9 produced.

In response to your criticism, however, I decided to shoot a quick string with the Caracal C using the more modern high-thumb Isosceles hold I’m trying to adopt. The camera does jump around a little bit, but the gun itself has almost no jump at all… (more…)
