NEW! Ruger PC Carbine Chassis – All the Bells and Whistles

Wednesday, November 13th 2019 01:27 PM

Ruger came out swinging with a 9mm Pistol Caliber Carbine last year, with a design that rocked us back on our heels. Building on that success, they have just released a new chassis version, with all the bells and whistles. We got our hands on one this week, for a full review.

Every year it seems that laser rangefinders push out beyond the distances of the previous year’s models, and I am left wondering when enough will be enough. Due to the limited open spaces, I rarely have an issue ranging game while hunting in the Eastern US.

Modeled after Bergara's popular centerfire line, the B-14R delivers the same supreme accuracy except in .22 LR.

Late last year, Remington introduced a new line of range ammunition specifically made for use with suppressed firearms, Remington Subsonic, launched in 9MM, .45 ACP and 300BLK. Remington worked with sister company AAC to devise rounds with velocities optimized for suppression, plus bullets designed to remove exposed lead on the bullet heels to eliminate leading in silencer ports.

As 3 Gun shooting becomes more and more popular, people are demanding more out of their guns. However, without the proper optic, the shooter can only ask so much. The Atibal X is a 1-10 power optic that can do it all for shooters that appreciate a run-and-gun style while demanding performance both up close and personal as well as out to 500-600 yards or more, making this optic perfect for recreational shooters and law enforcement alike. Because of the 10x power range and true 1X base power, a shooter can turn the daylight bright illuminated reticle on and gun down close targets on 1X as if they were using a red dot. On the other hand, the power can be cranked all the way up to 10X and either dialed for distance, or the holdovers in the reticle can be used to hit targets at extended ranges. This speed and versatility make the Atibal X the best optic for this application. There are only 2 other LPVO (low power variable optics) FFP 1-10 power optics out there to my knowledge, and you are going to have to pay a LOT more than $800 for them. So that only leaves one question for me to test: does the Atibal X perform?

Henry Rifles’ reputation precedes them. Known for producing some of the highest quality and most attractive lever-action rifles on the market, Henry offers one of my now favorite .45-70 rifles in an All-Weather offering. This rifle was designed for the hunter, farmer, rancher and working man (or woman) in general, as it is designed to take the abuse that everyday life can throw at it. Whether it be long rides in the truck, rainy days out in the field or a trek in a salty horse scabbard, the hard chrome plating and specially formulated industrial wood finish will keep this rifle rust and scratch-free. Coming in with an MSRP of $1050.00 and street price of around $850.00, the All-Weather is one of the toughest guns for the money.

IWI TAVOR 7 in 7.62 NATO – Review

Wednesday, October 30th 2019 03:57 PM

Let’s get something out of the way right upfront. I’m not an expert rifle guy. Sure, I know that the skinny end should point toward the target, but many of the finer points seem like voodoo magic to me. But that’s okay because the Tavor is called a Bullpup, a QCB weapon, a Combat gun, etc. Those names are more forgiving to those of us who generally know our way around a rifle but are not going to impress any real experts with knowledge or experience.

I have been pretty vocal about my support for the new XDM 10mm, it is in many ways the perfect 10. High capacity, lightweight, easy to shoot, and very importantly—affordable. It fits the hand like a natural extension, something we haven’t had in a double 10 under $2000 any time recently. I like it very much for bear country, self-defense, nightstand gun, and I would venture a duty gun. But I see something else in this particular 10mm that others may not have thought of. A USPSA Limited Class gun.

Ruger’s Wrangler “A Smile Maker”

Thursday, October 24th 2019 09:16 AM

Those in my age cohort (I’ll be 60 in a few months) can attest (or perhaps confess) to enjoying many an evening watching 60’s /70’s vintage TV “Westerns”. Some of my favorites were The Rifleman, Alias Smith and Jones, Bonanza and The Wild Wild West. No matter the favorite “we kids” could count on the good guys winning the day and cowboy guns in play. Even with a steady diet of those old shows with plots that carried good moral and ethical messages to us youngsters in the audience, I never really had a hankering for a single action revolver, until yesterday.
