FBI on Parkland Shooting: We Were Warned, Did Nothing

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has admitted that they were imminently warned, directly, of the Parkland, Florida shooter’s motive, opportunity, and means to commit his crimes. In a Press Release just posted on their website, the FBI states: On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) […]

Gear Review: KCarry Shoulder Holster

The KCarry holster bills itself as the “most comfortable holster you’ll ever wear.” Maybe. But the product is fundamentally unsafe . . . The simple elastic that covers the gun, including the trigger, does little to keep the trigger from being pulled while it’s still in the holster. I tried this with several pistols, including a […]

Gun Review: Kimber Camp Guard 10mm 1911

Kimber America is a proud sponsor of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. In 2010, Kimber and RMEF co-branded a line of 84L rifles. This year, Kimber donated $50k to the wilderness preservation organization and co-branded a new 1911, the Kimber Camp Guard. The Camp Guard is a 10mm 1911 with the RMEF logo carved into Rosewood […]

Gun Review: Wilson Combat GLOCK 19

Earlier this year Wilson Combat announced they were putting their gunmaking know-how up against about a million garage GLOCKsmiths. Enter the “Wilson Combat GLOCK Custom Pistol Enhancements.” RF and I are fans of, and owners of, a few different Wilson Combat pistols. I’ve found their 1911s to be consistently high quality and great shooting guns. […]

Gun Review: Kimber K6s DCR .357 Magnum

The J Frame-size magnum revolver has been the quintessential backup gun for decades. And for a good reason. They’re easy to carry, fast to deploy and pack a heck of a punch. Kimber, known for their mid-market 1911s, got into the wheelgun game a few years ago with their version of the powerful snubby. Unsurprisingly, […]

New from Cimmaron Firearms: New Revolvers, Pocket .380ACP

Texas-based Cimarron Firearms has released some beautiful new pistols for 2018. The Wild Bill 1851 Conversion above comes in .38 Special, while the Buffalo Bill Conversion is chambered in the traditional .44-40.  Both revolvers evoke Fats Domino’s My Blue Heaven, bedecked in a surfeit of machined engraving. In the neat but why column: Cimarron’s Pocket […]

For 2018, the King of Ki`ote Rifle has released two standard models to start customers on their journey to the ultimate precision rifle . . . Ron Grobman and I both got to spend some […]

New from STI: DVC Omni

I got so tired of writing the same thing for STI — great accuracy, spectacular reliability, smokin’ fast, five stars (or thereabouts) — I quit reviewing them. Copy and paste for whatever gun they send me. The thrill was gone. The new STI DVC Omni rekindles my interest . . . STI took fast, accurate […]
