Back in the day, I ran economic development for Texas. Convincing firearms manufacturers to move or expand in The Lone Star State was one of the favorite parts of my job. I didn’t think H&K would ever be one of my targets. But then, lo’ and behold, there I was, sitting in the Governor’s office with the CEO of […]

Factory Tour of Brethren Armament’s Custom Shop

First, a shameless plug: see the 9mm, .300 BLK, and 7.62×39 HK-pattern rifles above?

Gun Review: Heckler & Koch VP9

HK is no stranger to striker-fired pistols, but it’s been a while since they’ve designed a new one — close to four decades.

With the introduction of their new P-30, I wanted to check out the veracity of David Jensen’s review. […]

BangBang Cinema: The Losers

I have a very personal relationship with The Losers when it comes to TTAG. You could, without a doubt, say that if this movie didn’t exist at this time and place, I would have never come on board to write here. It was several weeks ago when I got a look at the posters for […]
