With so many powders, bullets, calibers, and guns out there, exactly how powerful are black powder revolvers? Terril wrangled up revolvers of different caliber, black powder and substitutes.
Terril Hebert investigates the underrated 22 Magnum cartridge. This rimfire rifle round has grown popular in defensive handguns and the demand has lead to new ammunition.
The Ruger Single Six still stands as a solid rimfire offering and one of the best all-around handguns you can buy today.
The Henry Survival Rifle and the Marlin Papoose are perhaps the best known take-down 22 rifles available today.
This budget bolt action hunting rifle is packed with features for users both new and old with scruples that are few and far between.
North American Arms is best known for their Mini Revolver line, however, their Guardian series of small semi-auto pistols have had my attention for years.
The Ruger LCP Centerfire Pistol is THE pocket pistol. It has become the standard by which all new palm-sized peashooters are judged. But does it still deserve this title? Let’s take a look at the LCP.
North American Arms’s mini revolvers are an affordable yet discreet choice for last ditch self-defense. Their Sidewinder series has been criminally underreported on until now.
In this review, I look at Remington’s 2011 re-entry into the handgun market with a…1911. Remington’s R1 1911 is on the shelves but is it any good?
The new Henry Casehardened Big Boy rifle is a classy lever gun chambered in favorite potent, yet surprisingly soft shooting 357 Magnum/.38 special. Here we put the 357 to the test.

While it won’t please today’s defensive-minded shooter, the Henry Arms Single Shot Shotgun is a perfect contender for trap shooting and small game hunting.
The 31-caliber Cimarron 1849 Colt Revolver won’t satisfy a power junkie, but it will do just about anything a 22 LR can with smoke and flame heightening respect with every shot.

When one thinks North American Arms, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Their North American Arms Mini Revolver of course.
It was fun to see a good Hornady hollow-point and a full metal jacket perform as advertised. But is there anything to gain from this fun little 30 carbine “experiment”?
A head to head 10mm Auto vs. 357 Magnum is nearly too close to call. Like with any boxing match, there is more to the story…
Gun rights activists can’t win fights by simply weathering the blows. Going on the offensive is the best strategy. Time to repeal gun-free killing zones.
When I first started researching the Glock 29 Gen4 , I immediately thought it to be a great hiking or hunting sidearm with enough compactness to double as a carry gun.
The future is looking to be good for the 10mm auto ammunition, with new pistols being released to the market, turning smoldering coals into a fire.
