Hogzilla Slayer or Home Defense Utensil? The FNX 45 Tactical

The FNX 45 Tactical

I can’t decide if the FNX 45 Tactical pistol is more suited for military and law enforcement door kickers, home defense or battling Hogzilla. It’s a huge 45 ACP, but I mean that more in terms of capability than size. In fact, holding it up to my Beretta 92FS, which is full-size, but certainly not […]

Ammo Test: Remington’s Ultimate Defense 38 Special +P

For this test, I decided to use a snub-nose revolver, a Ruger LCR 357.

For the first couple episodes of the Great GunsAmerica Ammo Adventure, we looked at some interesting rifle rounds: the new Sig Sauer 300 Blackout Match Subsonic and Doubletap’s new 6.8 Remington SPC 90 grain Bonded Defense. They’re both really interesting, and if you consider the results, high-performance rifle cartridges. Now it’s time to drift into […]

If you want to see the next generation of competitive clays shooters, look no further than the Association of College Unions International (ACUI).

Its purpose is to bring together college union and student activities professionals from hundreds of schools across […]

Mad Gun Science: Is Birdshot Effective at Indoor Distances?

We're testing a variety of birdshot sizes to see just how effective the are at indoor distances.

We gun folk are exceptionally guilty of repeating hearsay and assuming it’s truth. You know how it works. If some hypothetical scenario gets repeated enough, it becomes the truth. This week’s Mad Gun Science experiment has to do with the idea of using birdshot for home defense. This one has two “hearsay” truths. Birdshot is […]

Gun Review: Mossberg’s MVP Patrol 7.62mm/.308

Mossberg's MVP Patrol is ready for addition of accessories, like suppressors.

Having caught the suppressor bug, I’ve wanted to check out a bolt-action .308 that’s compact enough to handle the extra length and weight of a silencer, yet still remain portable and handy. That’s what peaked my interest in the Mossberg MVP Patrol. The MVP Patrol is a 7 ½ pound rifle (not including optic) that, […]

Some folks from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, United States Special Operations Command and Remington got together to work up a new cartridge that maintained reasonable […]
