3 Tips for Choosing a Duck Hunting Load

As is the case with brass-cased cartridges for personal defense, there will always be, uh, “discussion” about which soft-shell load kills ducks the best. Marketing tactics pushing the newest shot formulas or wad designs will surely tempt even the most seasoned waterfowler. But a 12 gauge cartridge that dropped ducks during the Dust Bowl era […]

Gun Review: CZ P-10 C

“Improving on Perfection” CZ-USA boldly proclaims, promoting their new P-10 C. I’m sure CZ’s lawyers would swear that the slogan is all about making their guns better. Clearly, it’s a shot over GLOCK’s bow. A claim that begs us to nitpick the heck out of this gun. Game on! Nestled in the CZ’s lockable plastic box: small, medium, and large backstraps, two 15-round magazines, […]

Inside CZ-USA’s 2017 New Product Catalog

It’s that time of the year again. The firearms industry gathering known as SHOT Show is around the proverbial corner. In the run-up to the gun biz Super Bowl, we’re fielding a constant stream of press releases, new product launch teasers, and 2017 product catalogs.

Gun Review: CZ 712 Practical Shotgun

CZ’s line of shotguns is pretty well fleshed out these days, spanning the spectrum from classy side-by-sides to go with your elbow-patched tweed jacket to tactical pumps for the bedroom closet. The 712 Practical seen here, which I’ve been playing with since November, is intended for use in 3-Gun competitions but can certainly suit other […]

Gear/Gun Review: CZ 75 Kadet Adapter

Sure, .22 LR has been a bit hard to come by over the last couple of years. That’s a change from the norm, of course, where .22 LR was the choice for inexpensive practice. While owning dedicated .22 firearms is great — great for collecting, for fun, for plinking, hunting, and target shooting — .22 conversion […]

CZ-USA SHOT Show 2015 Booth Tour

Hey CZ: Where Are Our Dan Wesson Revolvers?

Interchangeable handgun barrels and grip frames are really nothing new. Decades before SIG SAUER launched the P250/P320, Dan Wesson sold eponymous revolvers that could morph from a medium-frame snubnose to a vent-rib metallic silhouette cannon with the turn of a few strategically-placed screws and bushings. Sadly, these fine revolvers have been out of production for […]
