Gun Review: Devil Dog Arms Tactical 1911 in .45 ACP

It’s got more in common with the newer Marine Corps-issued Colt M45A1 CQBP than the original M1911A1, but the Devil Dog Arms Tactical framed 1911 chambered in .45ACP shares all the fighting greatness that made John Moses Browning’s classic legendary. When talking about Devil Dog Arms, the 600 Nitro Express in the room is the […]

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: IWI MASADA 9mm Pistol

Israel has a history and a culture of innovation. After all, they didn’t make the AK-47, but with the Galil, they made it better. They didn’t invent the bullpup, but their Tavor is one of, if not the best versions of that platform. They didn’t invent the CZ-75, but with the inclusion of a safety/decocker, […]

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 […]

Gun Review: Blaser F16 Shotgun

I’ve had some success hunting upland birds with a Blaser F16 Game model shotgun and Federal ammunition. In this review, I extend the application of the F16 Game, paired with Federal Target loads, for the killing of some clay pigeons. All kidding aside, just as in upland hunting, the combination of the Blaser F16 and […]

Gun Review: Armscor Rock Island Armory VR80 Shotgun

Rock Island Armory’s VR lineup of shotguns is a growing. I reviewed the VRBP-100 just a short while back, and while I liked it, I didn’t love it. One VR model I really do love, though, is the VR80. The Armscor RIA VR80 is the second generation of their AR-style magazine-fed shotguns. It’s a magazine-fed, […]

Gun Review: SIG SAUER P320 XCompact 9mm Pistol

The P320 XCompact is a member of the modular P320 family. Like other P320 models the XCompact consists of a stainless steel chassis that bears the serial number. The chassis in the X Compact is exactly the same the one found other P320 pistols and can be readily dropped into any other grip module and […]

Gun Review: Taurus G2s 9mm Subcompact Pistol

The Second Amendment is for everyone. It doesn’t matter your race, religion, gender, or income level. As such, affordable weapons are a must if we’re going to expand the right to keep and bear arms to as many Americans as possible. Taurus is well known for their affordable revolvers and semi-automatic handguns. They are also […]
