Glock Goes Optical and Adds a New 10mm Powerhouse

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 […]

Our Top 10 Shooting Articles of 2014

TRP-14-8x6.jpg

When I embark on an article project, I never really know which ones will be popular with our readers. Sometimes, the ones I’m most proud of get a “meh” response, while others that I’ve put less effort into might launch across the interwebz leaving a path of blazing wreckage in their wake. With that said, […]

Crimson Trace turned 20. Next year, they can legally have a beer.

2014 was yet another interesting year for the shooting community. While we regained some of the sanity lost in 2013 with astronomical prices and negative product availability, we still had a slightly tumultuous adventure. Let’s take a look, in no particular order, at some of the year’s highlights and lowlights. Monkeys flew out of my […]

Pic of the Day: Smokin’ Hot…

Smokin' Hot!

Here’s a SilencerCo Osprey 45 suppressor. This is mounted on a Glock 31, which is actually a .357 Sig pistol. One of the neat things about many .357 Sig guns is that you can do a barrel swap to .40 S&W using the same magazines. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to suppress .357 Sig […]

7 Things To Know About the .357 Sig, Sort Of…

One things is for sure about the .357 Sig cartridge: velocity makes a big difference. It's tough to find a .357 Sig load that doesn't expand, even after encountering barriers.

.357 Sig is my favorite pistol cartridge. I don’t really know why, I just think it’s cool. Well, seriously speaking, it is a screamer with great street performance and the bottleneck design helps not only velocity, but feeding reliability. Developed by a pas de deux featuring Sig Sauer and Federal Ammunition in 1994, it’s loosely […]

In a rare fit of advance planning and organization, I’m starting to think about what gear to use at this year’s Crimson Trace Midnight 3 Gun Invitational match. The event takes place August 12th through 17th in the high desert outside of Bend, Oregon, so I’ve got a little time. As the event title implies, […]

Let’s Talk Silencers!

Why not put a big honkin' silencer on a Glock 26?

Silencers remain a mystery in more ways than one. Are they legal? Can you buy one? Can anyone else use it? Do they really silence a gunshot? Has Hollywood completely misrepresented yet another gun safety topic? In this article, I want to focus on the fun part – using and shooting silencers, but first let’s […]
