Gun Review: Colt 1911 Government Series 80 .45 ACP

On March 29, 1911, Lt. Col. John T. Thompson of the U.S. Ordnance Department sent a letter to Colt’s in Hartford, Connecticut. The purpose was to inform them that the military testing held at Springfield Armory just two weeks prior had concluded and John Moses Browning’s 1911 design produced by Colt had come out on […]

Gun Review: Taurus G2C 9mm Pistol

There’s nothing wrong with cheap and cheerful, which is exactly what this Taurus G2C review is about. The G2C is an inexpensive handgun, to be sure, but don’t write it off too hastily. It actually has a lot more to offer than you’d think. Taurus renamed the PT111 Millennium G2 as the G2C (for “compact”), […]

Gun Review: Springfield Armory 911 .380 ACP Stainless

In the crowded field of .380 ACP handguns, why would you pick the Springfield Armory 911 sub-compact over the GLOCK 42, a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard, a CW380 from Kahr, one of Ruger’s LC versions? Why a 911 over a S&W Shield EZ, a Colt Mustang, a SIG SAUER P238, a Bersa Thunder, or traveling back in concept, a Walther PPK/S? I’m not here to sell you […]

Gun Review: GLOCK 19 Gen 5 9mm

Gun Review: Honey Badger by Q (SBR and Pistol)

I found Q’s Honey Badger extremely photogenic, for some reason, so there are nearly more photos than words in this review. Of course, it doesn’t help that there are fewer words than usual*. That’s because the Honey Badger is precisely as you’d expect and hope it is . . . except where it isn’t. As […]

Gun Review: Heckler & Koch P30SK With “Light” LEM Trigger

Tiny little single stacks are all the rage these days, but the original sub-compacts (or “SubKompacts” if you’re a P30SK) were basically just chopped grip versions of their duty-sized counterparts. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! The width and weight often make them easier to shoot well, and given the option to have more […]

Gun Review: Sauer 100 Pantera in 6.5 Creedmoor

My three favorite Panteras include the De Tomaso, the Texas metal band, and the Sauer 100 Pantera seen here. Okay, not the band. I prefer my metal nicely fluted, threaded 5/8×24, rocking a Picatinny rail for an optic, and installed in a sweet stock with dual front sling studs. So equipped, the Sauer 100 Pantera, […]
