Real and quantifiable practice under the exact same conditions as your daily carry just might expose some problem areas
The CMMG Banshee Mk10 in 10mm operates like an AR pistol, so it shares many of the same features including pinned upper and lower receivers.
With all that headache and waiting around just to get your hands on a firearms suppressor, should you ever consider using one on a home defense gun?
If you’re looking for “most powerful” then you’d always choose a rifle caliber over a pistol carbine and a carbine over a pistol.
If you use a gun for concealed carry or home defense, tiny groups are not always your friend.
One of the things that drives me crazy is the binary nature of people. I’m talking about our opinions on what the “right” answer is for any given situation.
How utterly miserable life would be if we only had one type of pickup truck, lawn tractor, 80s band, or Chia Pet character? 10mm ammunition another reason to support diversity.
In this ammunition review Tom McHale looks at three popular 12-Gauge Self Defense Ammo choices & the deadly results of each 12 gauge shotgun round.
As the name implies, the Security 9 is a 9mm pistol and is currently available in full size and compact forms. The Ruger standard models are all black with a polymer frame combined with steel.
The PC Carbine M-LOK model is available in 9mm only (for now) and uses Ruger SR9 magazines. A 17-round mag is included with this rifle. The net-net of all this shooting is simple.
I don’t see these two new pistols as directly comparable. Just as you wouldn’t set a bone-in Ribeye steak against Alaskan King Crab legs these Lightweight Concealed Carry Pistols.
Tom takes a look at the GLOCK 43X and finds it is a good combination of big enough to control and shoot comfortably yet small enough to easily carry.
The Glock 48 is the big brother of the also new Glock 43X. Both models differ from the original 43 in that they’re a hair wider.
Just like holsters, there’s always a new shooting drill on the market that will test your skills and either make you feel invincible or humble you in depressing new ways.
Some myths get passed around with blind regularity even if they are not true? Here are some firearms and home defense myths that just won’t die.
LMT M203 Grenade Launcher. Yes, it’s legal to own and requires no NFA paperwork or tax stamp, has plenty of ammunition options and you could win one at AmmoLand News.
I recommend lots of function testing. If you ever have to use your gun in self-defense, it’s wise to understand exactly what’s going to happen with your chosen self-defense ammo.
The slab-sided receiver of the Brownells BRN-601 AR-15 Rifle is a dead giveaway with its integrated carry handle. Did I say giveaway? Keep reading for more clues.
Whether one prefers an external mechanical safety on a pistol or not, is a classic apples and oranges decision. Neither is right nor wrong; they’re just different.
One wouldn’t think wind could have much effect on a tiny and aerodynamic bullet zipping along at two or three thousand feet per second when long range shooting. But one would be wrong.
If the wind was constant like gravity, making long-range first shot hits would be easy. However, the wind isn’t constant, it’s always changing, often second to second.
When you are reloading always think consistency. The more you can keep all variables the same from cartridge to cartridge the better results you’ll achieve on the range.
Tom McHale schools us on how he builds range logs with precision rifle data for getting on zero when long-range shooting.
When you hear terminology like first and second focal plane it sounds like serious physics is about to come at you like a spider monkey, but actually first and second focal plane is pretty simple.
The Sightmark 5-30×50 Pinnacle Riflescope’s main tube has a diameter of 34mm, so this scope is a beast, but I mean that in a loving and complimentary way.
