Kahr CW4543 .45ACP Pistol Review

Posted on 17 April 2014

This review was originally published in January 2009. Since then, this handgun has had over 2,500 rounds put through it. There has been no measurable loss of accuracy nor any noticeable change in the finish. We repost this review as the weapon continues to perform as expected.

Del-Ton .223 Rifle

Posted on 17 April 2014

I hadn’t previously ever heard of Del-Ton Inc. or the rifles they manufacture. Within a couple weeks I had a test rifle and here I am several weeks later reporting on how a rifle I’d never heard of performed. I wasn’t disappointed with the new name.

The Winchester Lever Action .30-.30 Revisited

Posted on 16 April 2014

As I think about that I see a high value in the lever action rifle. I don’t think the politicians can easily justify, or at least using any reasonable logic justify, the desire to ban or limit lever action weapons.

.380ACP Guns For CCW

Posted on 15 April 2014

Perhaps the most popular, or at least most well-known, .380ACP handgun is/was James Bond’s Walther PPK. The Walther PP (Polizeipistole or police pistol) was first produced in 1929 and has been in service, in some way, shape or form, ever since.

The Strength of Cross-Weapon Ammo Capability

Posted on 14 April 2014

If you can plan, prepare and train for the eventualities, then having cross-weapon ammo capability is probably a good way to go. On the other hand… it’s near impossible to train for every eventuality and the biggest nagging thought I have in the back of my brain is: what if you plan around a single caliber/cartridge and it turns out to be the one you have the most trouble finding?

Beretta PX4 .40S&W Pistol

Posted on 10 April 2014

Sometimes it takes a company a few years to evolve a new design. Beretta’s M9 / 92F 9mm handgun – and the subsequent .40S&W caliber versions – was, and still is, an excellent design. That said, is there always room for improvement? Yes. Otherwise the firearms industry would be stuck with flintlock rifles and handguns. There are several notable design evolutions incorporated in the Beretta PX4 pistols.

Randall Stainless Steel .45ACP

Posted on 10 April 2014

Across the span of the past century, give or take a couple of years, the Colt Government Model 1911 .45ACP pistol may well be the most copied pistol design to date. At present you can get some version of the legendary pistol from Colt, Smith & Wesson, SigArms, Springfield Armory, Auto Ordnance, and more.

MAST Technology Inc. Ammo

Posted on 08 April 2014

Prior to a recently scheduled range day I was in touch with an industry friend of mine and we happened to be discussing ammo. My buddy said he might be able to hook me up with some ammo from MAST Technology, Inc., a company I hadn’t even heard of at that point.
