Gun Review: Henry AR-7 Survival Rifle

If I could, I’d carry an eight-gauge shotgun loaded with 00 buck. Unfortunately, that would be like walking into a singles bar with Adeline Mocke. That’s why I pack a snubby .38 or a sub-compact 9mm. I slip the gun in my pocket before heading out the door. Done. In terms of rifles, there’s Henry […]

Gun Review: Mossberg MVP Varmint

    There’s something to be said for using teeny tiny bullets zipping along amazingly fast for taking out small game. Especially when your target is similarly zipping across the field in front of you, being able to hit that moving target is made much easier with faster rounds. Varmint hunters have known this for […]

Gun Review: SIG Sauer P210 Legend Target

While attending the Civilian Response to Terrorist Threats class recently at the SIG Sauer academy, I made a rather fatal mistake. I was in the process of purchasing a SIG Sauer P938 (click here for my review on that gun) and I happened to jokingly ask the guys in the pro shop if they had […]

Gun Review: JR Carbine

  JR stands for Just Right. And boy did I want this pistol caliber carbine to be JR. I wanted so badly for it to be JR. But it wasn’t JR. It was really only POK (pretty OK). But POK Carbine doesn’t roll off the tongue quite like JR Carbine. The JR may not be […]

Gun Review: Mossberg MMR Tactical (AR-15)

Everyone and their brother makes an AR-15 these days. It is without a doubt the most popular design in the United States, and for good reason — it’s like Legos for grown ups. More and more “traditional” gun companies are throwing their hats in the ring, producing budget priced AR-15 copies for the civilian market. […]

Gun Review: SIG Sauer P938 Nightmare

One of the main benefits of living closerthanthis to the SIG SAUER Academy in Epping New Hampshire: the guys in the Pro Shop know me better than Daniela De Jesus Cosio knows Mexican food. Familiarity breeds contempt? Could be. I’ve been asking about the P938 pistol for months. And then it happened. While I was […]

Hope For Mexico?

[HTML1] No. There is no hope for Mexico until and unless the people can reclaim their constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms. As always, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. This effort to reclaim the streets for guitar-playing Mexicans and other law-abiding citizens is doomed to failure considering the endless financial […]

Gun Review: Springfield Armory XD-S .45 ACP

“The .380 was a cute fad,” Springfield Armory’s print ads proclaim. “Now, let’s get back to business.” Back to business indeed. Forty-five caliber single-stack striker fired pistols aren’t exactly a new thing. Kahr and Glock have been making them since the naughties. Truth be told neither model has been flying off the shelves. But no one […]

Official TTAG Review Guidelines

A week or so ago I asked for input on what you guys want in a review. I’ve taken all of your feedback, ignored most of it and tried to tie as much as possible of what was left into a guide for writing reviews. As always, we’re open to suggestions on how to improve […]

Gun Preview: Benelli M4 Civilian Tactical

You asked for it and we got it – a Benelli M4 Civilian. Supposedly this is the gun that settles the Mossberg SPX vs. FN SLP vs. Remington Versa-Max tactical debate. For those who aren’t familiar with the M4, this is the same gun the U.S. Marine Corps are using. The M4 strays away from […]

Gun Review: Arsenal SLR-106FR (5.56mm AK)

I really like the AK platform and my visit to the Arsenal/K-Var SHOT Show booth was like the delirious wanderings of a sugar-buzzed child in an M&M outlet store. When Farago learned that they had sent me one of their top-end 5.56mm Bulgarian AKs for testing and evaluation, his first response was straight from a […]
