Review: Mossberg International SA-20 Field 20 Gauge Shotgun

Semi-automatic 20-gauge shotguns are often good choices for female or younger shooters who want a lighter gun with less recoil, but with most of the shot-pattern effectiveness of a 12 gauge.

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield 9mm Pistol

The market for guns is growing faster than the national debt. Paradoxically, the guns themselves are shrinking. Powerful handguns are getting smaller, easier to carry and less expensive.
