I never had any intention of doing a review of a Head Down Products rifle, I knew they existed but in more of a peripheral sense than anything else. Compared to some other rifle makes, Head Down is smaller, newer and without the same exposure. None of these facts mean they couldn’t build a good […]
Gun reviews, including concealed carry guns, combat weapons, hunting rifles, tactical rifles, shotguns, home defense.
Heckler & Koch (HK) took the internet by storm earlier this year with the introduction of their newest pistol, the striker fired VP9. Even though at that point I had never owned an HK pistol, I was immediately interested in the VP9 for a few reasons.
We’ve been hearing about Beretta ARX 100 for years – literally. Well, Beretta has finally got them running and they are now available.
In the market of boutique, limited and full-production rifles, Black Rain is newer than many. Usually newer means you have to prove your quality and customer service to a customer base that goes from just-getting-started to I check headspacing between rounds. Proving yourself is important, because rifles need to last, be reliable and meet the […]
I’ve covered the Remington R51 problems several times before – my first impressions here, problems, and more problems - and since there’s no way I’m going to purchase the R51 to review at this point, I thought I’d pass along the Military Arms Channel review of the Remington R51.
During my career and personal life, I have carried a lot of different handguns. From a service Beretta to a duty carry H&K USP Tactical, a Kimber 1911 to an FN 5.7; I’ve experienced the pros and cons of different controls and functions. This doesn’t make me an “expert” in the handgun, but it does […]
Coming from a precision shooting background I tend to get a fair amount of questions from people about what kind of rifle they should buy to get started in this particular discipline of shooting, and typically, I recommend a Remington 700. If this conversation takes place at my local shooting range, then invariably some guy […]
The Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22 is probably the most popular AR-15 chambered in .22 LR that has ever been made. That popularity is very well deserved because of just how awesome the 15-22 is. The 15-22 is the perfect option for someone who wants to train using an AR but cannot afford to spend […]
I’ve had a love of AR-15’s since I was a kid. The first AR that I can remember shooting was in the early 90’s and it belonged to my dad. Fast-forward almost 20 years and it is still one of my favorite rifles. I build them and also repair them for my department. I’ve worked on Rock […]
Right before New Year’s, I took a trip to the new Academy in town to see what was in stock and hopefully pick up some ammo, and perhaps a weapon or two if the price was right.
