The Truth About Guns is proud to pre-announce its annual “Big Bang” awards, scheduled for October 2011. It’s your basic “best” award, recognizing the firearms and firearms accessories industry for its product achievements. First, our Armed Intelligentsia nominates products introduced within one calendar year of September 2011 (since September 2010). A panel of TTAG writers chooses five finalists from your nominations. We test the products and report the plusses and minuses. You vote the Big Bang winners. Simple. So let’s start with categories. Um . . . what are they? Tricky business this. Best Rifle, Handgun or Shotgun by type, caliber, price, accuracy, innovation or all things considered? How many categories? Best Tactical Pen? Your help is most appreciated.
