Gun Review: GLOCK 45 9mm

There a number of people in today’s world that are impossible to make happy. Chief among these are gun people, and the most notorious and outspoken are fans of GLOCK pistols. Today we will be taking a look at a gun that makes a tremendous amount of sense to me and many others, but has […]

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.

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson M&P9 SHIELD M2.0 9mm

With the introduction of their M2.0 line of polymer framed, striker fired pistols, Smith & Wesson addressed the one big complaint that gun buyers had about the M&P line: the trigger. As we’ve mentioned in previous reviews of both the full-size and compact double-stack versions of the new M&P9 M2.0, the attention Smith paid to […]

Gun Review: Thompson/Center T/CR22 Rifle

There are a lot of words to describe what it takes to go directly up against one of the all-time best-selling semi-automatic rifles in the world. Audacity, optimism, bravery, insanity, intrepidity, recklessness, cojones and chutzpah are a few that come immediately to mind. But whatever the motivating force at Thompson/Center (read: Smith & Wesson or American […]
