TTAG’s Best of 2013 Readers Choice Awards


Year-end lists have become pretty much obligatory. But when we decided to name the best of the best in the world of guns for 2013 – a first for TTAG – we didn’t want to do all the heavy lifting ourselves. Where’s the fun in that? Instead, we figured it made more sense to leave the decision-making to the collective wisdom of you, our readers. And I probably don’t have to tell you you’re an opinionated group. So now that we’ve weeded out the snark and older stuff, here are your choices for the best new products in the firearm firmament for 2013 . . .

Put a cap on your head, and not in someones…

…you get the point. TTAG’s gone upscale with TShirts and caps (or “covers” if you’re a retired or active-duty Marine), perfect for all occasions, as long as if by “occasion” you mean heading out to the range for an afternoon full of punching holes in paper with small bits of lead.

Yep. We got caps. We got shirts. Now what we need/want/desire is a bunch of the TTAG Armed Intelligentsia wearing them. Don’t wait. Avoid the rush. Shirts are limited to the first 200 buyers, then we change the design. Oh, and we’re adding even larger sizes, so don’t be shy. Step right up and be the first on your block to own a bit of genuine TTAG merchandise.


TTAG Limited Edition Founder’s T-Shirt Now Available

(courtesy The Truth About Guns)

Okay, campers, our long-promised, long-awaited TShirts, caps (and soon-to-be-available other goodies) are finally online and ready for your credit card purchases. Click here for the TTAG Store. Don’t hold back. Tell us what you think. Even better, buy something. Rest assured that the money you spend here will not go to build mosaic handball courts for the overprivileged sons and daughters of gun grabbers, nay, it will go to expand the TTAG empire and encourage our impoverished scribes to buy new wicks for their sooty lamps that light their lonely writers garrets. Or something. Our first design is limited to the first 200 buyers.


New(ish) logotype. Comments?

Okay, so this is not exactly a post about guns. It’s a post about a site that covers guns. Namely us. So I guess it’s a metapost, if you wanna get all metaphysical and such. Anyway, along with our impending release of TTAG TShirts and other future swag, we thought it might be a good time to update the ol’ look and feel. As always, we want the input of the TTAG Armed Intelligencia. Your thoughts?


The First TTAG Meet-up @ The NRA Confab

As you’ve probably already read, TTAG will be out in force, covering the NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits like GSR on a competition shooter’s hand. Or something. A number of the TTAG Armed Intelligencia have asked if we could have a meet-up for those of you attending, or who live in the greater Pittsburgh area. Which sounds like a great idea to us. (Truth to tell, in this age of the Internet, most of your humble correspondents have not met, face to face. Unless you count Apple’s FaceTime. Still. Whatever.)Read More


TTAG upgrades – Editing Your Comments (Yourself)

We love TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia. We love it even more when you feel moved to comment on something you read—as long as you avoid flaming. But in the big-league, razzle-dazzle, live-on-the-razor’s edge, take-your-life-in-your-hands world of blog commenting, sometimes there’s a slip betwixt the “publish button” and the lip. In plain(er) English, you hit “send” and just as the key travels back up to neutral on the old keyboard, you realize “butwaitI’mnotreadytosendthatIneedtomakesomechanges.”

TTAG is Growing, but Icon See You Very Well…

The good news: TTAG is growing by leaps and bounds. New writers. New readers. Lots of readers making comments. It’s all good. And aside from a few tech glitches lately (our downtime Friday night/Saturday morning was due to a router problem at our server farm), everything’s been working smoothly. Which brings me to a comment of my own. Read More
