Gun Review: Alpha Foxtrot AF1911 Government 9mm Pistol

There’s something about a 1911 blasphemously chambered in 9x19mm that I love. And you should love it, too. It’s everything that’s good about the 1911 platform smoothed out and refined with a significantly lighter recoil spring and a silkier, flatter, faster shooting experience. This new entrant to the 9mm 1911 market comes from Alpha Foxtrot, […]

Bergara Introduces the B-14 R .22 LR Rifle

One of the very best uses of inexpensive, soft-shooting .22 LR ammunition is in training to properly shoot a full-size, centerfire rifle. All the better if your .22 LR firearm (or conversion kit) precisely matches your centerfire firearm in size, weight, ergonomics, trigger, controls, etc. New from Bergara is the B-14 R, which does just […]

Head-to-Head Comparison: SIG P365 vs. Springfield Hellcat

Holding 11+1 rounds in its micro-compact magazine, it’s no mystery that the Springfield Armory Hellcat, reviewed by Dan here, has its sights set squarely on the famously standard-setting 10+1-round SIG Sauer P365 (reviewed by John Boch here and followed up by me here). Even though SIG wasn’t the first to shoehorn double-digit rounds of 9×19 […]

Gun Review: ZRODelta Modulus 9mm Modular Pistol System

They tell me the ZRODelta Modulus is one firearm, but it sure feels like three. Scratch that, nine. More? The maths are hard to suss out, but with this complete Deployment Kit the configuration options are deep and wide. So that’s it. That’s the actual gun. At least, the part our benevolent government overlords have […]

An Interview with Craig from Rugged Suppressors

Craig from Rugged Suppressors was in town visiting Silencer Shop last week, and the guys and gals there were cool enough to set us up in their vault with some lights and a couple of cameras. I did my best to interview Craig about Rugged — who they are, how they fit in the market, […]

Hands-On With KelTec’s New P17 .22LR 16+1 Pistol

Last November I attended a KelTec media event at High Bar Homestead in Wyoming. Though the list of warm places I would have rather been during Turkey Month is impressively long, it did offer me the opportunity to put dozens and dozens of full magazines — like, 33 and 50 rounds full! — through a […]

Hunting with CZ-USA Suppressors and Firearms

Unbeknownst to many, CZ-USA has been somewhat quietly rolling out a line of suppressors designed to compliment their rifles and subguns (and yours, too). Earlier this spring I was invited to join a West Texas hunt — for what, I didn’t know — to get some trigger time behind the new suppressor line, and jumped […]

Gun Review: Franchi Momentum Rifle in .308 Win

Franchi, a 150-year-old shotgun manufacturer, clearly felt it was high time an affordable Italian hunting rifle hit U.S. shores. Affordable? Italian? Yes and yes. Meet the Franchi Momentum Bolt-Action Rifle. Available in six calibers, TTAG gave the $609 MSRP .308 Winchester flavor a test drive. Unsurprisingly, the Momentum is equipped with a synthetic stock. Synthetic […]
