FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- The July issue of Shooting Illustrated, on newsstands now, features Steyr’s new duty-size semi-automatic pistol. The L-A1 series, available in 9 mm, .357 SIG and .40 S&W, showcases Steyr’s famous low bore axis and unique frame.
This innovative new handgun is designed around the shooter and comprises a number of ergonomic touches to improve the overall experience. See how the L9-A1 performs as we put it through its paces.
Fit for another kind of duty is the Alexander Arms Ulfberht. The first semi-automatic rifle chambered in .338 Lapua Mag. is a long-range shooter’s dream, with a long-stroke gas piston design that tames the recoil of the mighty magnum. This groundbreaking rifle reaches out to targets well beyond 1,000 yards, so if long-distance riflery captures your interest, this is one new product you do not want to miss.
Speaking of hitting the target, Editor-in-Chief Ed Friedman examines the growing acceptance of laser sights on defensive handguns. He spent a week at Gunsite learning how to best use his pistol’s laser sight and relates the fundamentals of Gunsite’s new Laser 250 course. Zeroing the laser, balancing accuracy and speed, shooting in low light conditions and how lasers work in confrontations are covered in this must-read for any handgun owner.
Whether you incorporate a laser in your defensive practice or not, using a rimfire stand-in for your centerfire gun is a way to stretch your training dollar. If concern about running defensive drills with rimfire ammunition keeps you burning up expensive centerfire ammo, fear not. There are three new “tactical” rimfire offerings designed specifically for popular semi-automatic firearms, and Associate Editor Jay Grazio put all three brands through an exhaustive testing protocol. Find out if there’s substance behind the marketing.
