Gun Review: Altor Corp Single Shot 9mm

Meet the Altor Corp pistol, a single-shot pistol with a unique design and interesting trigger. The Altor is available in either 9mm or .380 ACP. It’s an American made gun made by a small company in Phoenix, Arizona.  This is not a gun for everyone, but I found it to be a rather neat weapon […]

Gun Review: Henry Lever Action Axe .410

If you are the type who doesn’t take every gun purchase seriously, then the Henry Axe .410 might just be for you. This isn’t a terribly practical or necessarily useful gun for most people, but man is it fun. The Henry Lever Action Axe .410 isn’t really a shotgun. It’s a firearm — technically a […]

SHOT Show: Aimpoint CompM5B Red Dot Sight

Aimpoint invented the red dot optic, and they’ve been a company with a massive line up of excellent optics. Their optics serve police and military forces around the world including the US Army. At SHOT Show 2020 Aimpoint announced the new CompM5B, an addition to their M5 sight line. The CompM5B has two major changes […]

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 […]
