BlackRock’s Post-Parkland Approach to Gun Makers: Black Mail

As you no doubt know, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Delta Airlines, Symantec Corp. and a brace of other media-sensitive corporations have cancelled discount programs they offered to NRA members. It was their way of conspicuously virtue signaling responding to the tragedy of the Parkland Valentine’s Day massacre and “doing something” about the growing problem of mass shootings […]

Hands on with the new Ruger Precision .22

I got to handle the new Ruger Precision Rimfire yesterday at SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range. For my fingers’ sake let’s call the rifles the RP22. So what’s so special about the RP22? The non-folding butt stock is adjustable every which way. The stock is solid and the adjustments are secure. The trigger is […]

Gun Review: Ruger PC Carbine

It was hard to shake an AR at last year’s SHOT Show without hitting a pistol caliber carbine. They’re all the rage these days, including Ruger’s new PC Carbine seen here, but did you know Ruger’s been making semi-auto PCCs for almost 60 years?

Gun Review: Ruger Security-9

Though they’ve been out of production for 30 years, Ruger’s “Security-Six” remains a legendary model, named for its six-round capacity (much like Ruger’s Single-Ten holds 10 rounds).

Gun Review: Ruger 10/22 Target Rifle

Ruger’s ultra-popular 10/22 is fun, reliable, handy, fairly accurate and one of the most easy to customize platforms in the gun world. I’ve owned three over the years and always regret selling them. But as I became a more proficient shooter I eventually grew out of the standard 10/22 carbine. While the standard 10/22 models are […]

Five Handguns I Can’t Live Without

by Austin Knudsen I don’t read as many gun magazines as I used to. But there are a few articles that are seared into my memory. One such article was written several years ago by Sheriff Jim Wilson: a countdown of the five handguns he couldn’t live without. So I thought, why reinvent the wheel? […]
