Gun Review: Altor Corp Single Shot 9mm

Meet the Altor Corp pistol, a single-shot pistol with a unique design and interesting trigger. The Altor is available in either 9mm or .380 ACP. It’s an American made gun made by a small company in Phoenix, Arizona.  This is not a gun for everyone, but I found it to be a rather neat weapon […]

5 Handguns I Can’t Live Without

By Austin Knudsen I don’t read as many gun magazines as I used to. But there are a few articles that are seared into my memory. One such article was written several years ago by Sheriff Jim Wilson: a countdown of the five handguns he couldn’t live without. So I thought, why reinvent the wheel? […]

SHOT Show: F-1 Firearms Releases New Suppressors, Pistols

Coming to F-1 Firearms this year is a full line of rifle suppressors plus a smattering of aluminum-framed, Gen3 GLOCK-compatible handguns. Covering everything from .22 LR to .50 BMG, which I’d have to say takes care of most things you can shoot from a rifle, F-1’s new suppressor line is made entirely of titanium and […]

SHOT Show – Kimber K6S DASA Target Revolver

Wheelguns are inherently attractive weapons. It’s hard to make an ugly one (possible, but difficult), and even the ugly ones have some charm to them. Of all the revolvers currently being produced, the Kimber K6S DASA Target has to be one of the best looking (the new Python might also be tied for that first […]

SHOT Show: Remington 700 CP Bolt Action Pistol

The Remington 700 CP – for “Chassis Pistol” – is a handheld, er…gun from Remington, which was on the floor for SHOT Show 2020 (it was actually announced a year ago). It’s seems a stretch to call it a “pistol” when it’s so obviously a stockless rifle, but naming conventions and ATF regulations being what […]

SHOT Show: FN 509 Compact 9mm Pistol

The FN 509 may not have won the MHS trials, but it’s become a rather popular alternative to GLOCK Perfection. FN has been wise to throw a lot of support behind the gun and this has most certainly helped translate into more sales. FN has made a ton of handguns in the last decade or […]

SHOT Show: Dan Wesson DWX Compact 9mm Pistol

“Hello there,” I said to myself as I stumbled across the Dan Wesson DWX Compact. With just a passing glance you’d think it was another one of the many 1911s in the Dan Wesson lineup. However, the DWX Compact is a bit more than that. The DWX Compact is an experiment in blending some of […]

SHOT Show: NOBLEX Sight for GLOCK M.O.S. System

NOBLEX has been making high-end optics out of Germany for 150 years. A well-known brand, but they weren’t on my SHOT Show must-visit list. Thankfully a picture of this new “NOBLEX Sight for GLOCK M.O.S. System” optic caught my eye and I popped in to check it out. This is easily one of the coolest […]
