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.
Here’s a question to make your brain hurt. Are more myths and rumors passed along at the local gun store counter or on the internet? Let’s debunk the top five concealed carry myths.
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.
You might already know that AmmoLand News is giving away a sweet 6.5mm Creedmoor AR-10 rifle. To add some icing to the cake, the winner will also receive this Vortex Strike Eagle 4-24×50 Scope.
The kind folks at Palmetto State Armory sent this one to us for testing and evaluation and agreed that it would be a great idea to give it away to a lucky Ammoland reader.
Tom McHale schools us on the proper use of quick turrets and scope reticles when shooting for long distances in this continuation of his article series on long-range shooting.
My overall impression of the Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5mm Creedmoor is simple. It’s a lot of gun for the price considering what’s in this build and how it shoots, that seems like a deal to me.
Shooter Tom Mchale gives us the need to know info on how to use a ballistic computer for cool things like long range shooting.
