SHOT Show – Kimber K6S DASA Target Revolver

Wheelguns are inherently attractive weapons. It’s hard to make an ugly one (possible, but difficult), and even the ugly ones have some charm to them. Of all the revolvers currently being produced, the Kimber K6S DASA Target has to be one of the best looking (the new Python might also be tied for that first […]

SHOT Show: FN 509 Compact 9mm Pistol

The FN 509 may not have won the MHS trials, but it’s become a rather popular alternative to GLOCK Perfection. FN has been wise to throw a lot of support behind the gun and this has most certainly helped translate into more sales. FN has made a ton of handguns in the last decade or […]

SHOT Show: Dan Wesson DWX Compact 9mm Pistol

“Hello there,” I said to myself as I stumbled across the Dan Wesson DWX Compact. With just a passing glance you’d think it was another one of the many 1911s in the Dan Wesson lineup. However, the DWX Compact is a bit more than that. The DWX Compact is an experiment in blending some of […]

SHOT Show Range Day: Walther CCP M2 .380 Is Here

Walther initially announced the Walther CCP in .380 way back in January 2019, and then nothing ever happened. The gun disappeared for some reason. In 2020 they sent a press release out relaunching the gun. It was a standard press release as if they had forgotten the CCP in .380. They finally had one at […]

SHOT Show: Meprolight Foresight Heads-Up Display

With so many different products coming out of SHOT Show it can be dizzying. Luckily, sometimes you are in the right place at the right time and you hear about something rather sweet. I was in the Media room when people started chatting about the new Meprolight Foresight. I heard a few things and my […]

SHOT Show: Springfield’s New Ronin 1911 in .45 and 9mm

I have a checkered history with 1911s. I don’t get the hubbub, but I can appreciate their aesthetic, the awesome triggers and historical significance. There are lots and lots of different companies producing 1911s, probably close to the number of companies producing different types of AR-15s. The gun has been around the block a time […]

SHOT Show: The New Streamlight TLR-9 Weapon Light

Streamlight has been oddly quiet about the TLR-9, and in general a bit quiet about their range of new products for SHOT Show. This includes a TL Racker for the Mossberg Shockwave and SBS Mossbergs, and of course the TLR-9. The TLR-9 is Streamlight’s newest full-sized weapon light. This model is specifically designed for the […]

SHOT Show: The Palmetto State Armory AR-V Rifle

Palmetto State Armory is a company that doesn’t seem to be scared of making weird stuff a reality. They started with their AK-V, beating Kalashnikov USA to the 9mm AK pistol and rifle market. Better yet, they chose the very aesthetically pleasing CZ Scorpion magazines as their base mag. They didn’t stop there though. This […]

Gun Review: IWI Tavor TS12 Shotgun

No, the IWI Tavor TS12 shotgun doesn’t cycle mini shells, it’s a semi-auto shotgun designed for standard shotgun ammo. The mini shell thing is quickly becoming the “Does it take GLOCK mags,” meme for smoothbores. Now that’s out of the way, and we can get on with what has been the hardest gun I’ve had […]
