The new Glock 40 MOS 10mm (top) and G41 MOS .45 ACP (bottom)

There’s been much speculation about what Glock may or may not announce at the 2015 SHOT Show. Single stack 9mm, the Glock 1911 and pocket polymer flamethrower have all been tossed around as potential product announcements. Well, at the pre-SHOT media range event, I found out. The new product line announcements  include a series of […]

Crimson Trace Lasergrips

If you’ve been to SHOT Show, you know you need to bring plenty of Advil.

These Boots Were Made for Walkin’

Danner Mountain Light II boots

I picked up this pair of classic Danner hiking boots after touring the Danner factory back on November. Seeing the handcrafting process in detail gave me a major itch to try out a classic pair of stitched down sole boots.  I scratched that itch with this pair of Mountain Light II boots. They’re the closest thing […]

A Gun I’m Particularly Anxious to Try at SHOT: Sig’s New MCX 300 Blackout

Sig's new 300 Blackout MCX in the short-barrel rifle configuration.

It’s an incredibly versatile cartridge. Compatibility with .223 / 5.56mm […]

Unlike every other firearm on the market, the SIG MCX was designed from the start for optimum performance with […]

Somewhat by accident, I might have stumbled on an interesting Hogzilla antidote. The pistol is an FNX 45 Tactical. With a 15 round magazine, it’s ready for a whole passel of irritable bacons in training. For ammo, we’re going all Hogzilla medicine. These are Doubletap 450 SMC hard cast cartridges. The 450 SMC can be fired […]

Handgun Caliber Doesn’t Matter

Handgun Ammunition

“It’s not the size mate, it’s how you use it.” Nigel Powers, Super Spy Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) Wise words for a comedy movie and certainly relevant to the never-ending caliber wars. What caliber is best for concealed carry? If I use a 9mm, won’t the bullets just bounce off my attacker? If I […]
