Gun Review: Magnum Research MR9 Eagle

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, right? If that’s so, the Walther P99 should be very flattered, though it’s an oddly popular gun to clone. The Turks cloned it via the Canik, and Smith & Wesson teamed up with Walther to produce the SW99. Another partnership between Walther and an American company is […]

Gun Review – Remington Model 870 TAC-14 Hardwood

The Remington 870 TAC-14 and Mossberg 590 Shockwave “pistol grip firearms” have been quite successful for the two big names in American-made shotguns. Successful enough that both companies have produced a number of variants of these short not-a-shotguns. As the owner of several of these firearms, I have to say my all-time favorite is the […]

Gun Review: Beretta 21A Bobcat 22 LR

Captain Thierry Prungnaud took point in the assault that ended with the rescue of all the passengers and crew still onboard […]

Last year, John Stewart of Kiote Rifles made my dream come true by building my “last rifle”. That Ruger No 1 in .375 H&H Magnum really is the last rifle I’ll ever need. Oh…but want is a different thing entirely. This year I found myself shooting varmints a little farther out, and decided to get […]

Gun Review: Ruger AR-556 Pistol

Ruger has had a few lines of AR pattern rifles out for years now. Five years ago they released their budget minded series, the AR-556. Now Ruger’s entered the braced AR pistol market with a similar budget-minded offering, the Ruger AR-556 pistol with SB Tactical’s SBA3 brace. This is, obviously, not a MIL-STD AR. I […]
