John Barsness gives readers an inside look at SIG SAUER’s P226 Extreme .40 S&W in “Going Extreme: SIG SAUER P226 Extreme .40 S&W, That Is.” Readers will learn why many military units use this versatile semi-auto handgun across the globe.
“Along with compact variations, it serves around the world as a military and police sidearm for a long list of organizations including … the United Arab Emirates Army and the US Navy SEALs who recently visited Osama bin Laden,” says Barsness. “It’s just about everywhere because it’s an extremely reliable and tough handgun.”
GUNS Magazine also checks out Ruger’s SR-556E in “The ‘Essential’ AR.” Find out why author Mike Cumpston thinks this AR makes a great defensive long gun, as well as being perfect as an outdoor utility gun.
