Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22

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 […]

Glock 19 Gen 4

If you’ve been following Monderno for very long, especially on our Facebook page, there’s a good chance you’ve noticed my Smith & Wesson M&P persuasion. You could say that I’m not a believer in Glock Perfection, at least not in the way that it’s sold to you by Glock. Having said that, neither Glock nor […]

Cold Weather EDC

Pictured above is a Glock 19 in a PHLster Skeleton and a spare mag in a PHLster Skeleton Mag Carrier. Last spring we talked about summer EDC, and how in the summer I tend to shed layers and “gun down” to aid in concealability.

Apex Tactical M&P Trigger Components

If you’ve been around guns for very long, there’s a good chance you’ve come across a Smith & Wesson M&P. The Smith & Wesson M&P is, in my opinion, one of the best polymer handguns on the market. Like all things in life, however, it has a weakness: the trigger. Much has been written and […]

V&C Industries

V&C Industries, LLC is a veteran owned small business located in Northern Virginia, and they provide a number of services including gunsmithing and Cerakote gun coating. I found V&C Industries on Facebook, and I contacted them about Cerakoting my Smith & Wesson M&P.

Glock Perfection: Fact or Fiction?

Glock Perfection. I’m sure you’ve heard Glock’s slogan before, but just how much truth is there in it? A lot might depend on whether or not you’re a fan of Glock… Though I’ve shot many Glocks over the years, I’ve only recently become a Glock owner. I’ve long been more of a Smith & Wesson […]

Your First Handgun

A question I get asked fairly often is what handgun do I recommend as a first, and potentially ONLY, handgun. Partly because I think this is an interesting debate, and partly because I’m lazy and want to have a post to refer people to in the future, I decided to put my thoughts together and […]
