The all-Democratic Pittsburgh City Council voted 6-3 this week to ban the “use” of some semi-automatic rifles along with a total ban on magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition and all armor-piercing ammunition. The Council also voted to enact an ordinance allowing the court to seize firearms under an “extreme risk protection order” requested by a family or household member.

The new Sig Sauer P320 XCompact pistol, which takes all the popular X Series features and puts them in a compact frame optimized for carry, is headed to dealers
Introduced earlier this year, the XCompact blends the features of the full-size line such as the redesigned grip module with a fastback profile, contoured magwell, and flat trigger with a deep trigger guard undercut, to a subcompact slide and barrel. This puts the gun in the same neighborhood size-wise as the P320 Compact— and Glock’s G19— while adding a ton of features. Best yet, it is comes standard with a X-Ray3 day/night front sight with rear night sight plate assembly making it optic-ready for Sig’s Romeo series and Deltapoint Pros.
Size overall is 7 inches and the double stack 15+1 9mm weighs in at 25.3-ounces. While a compact with a 3.6-inch barrel, the pistol still sports an M1913 accessory rail on the dust cover. MSRP is $680.
Guns.com caught up with Sig Product Manager Phil Strader earlier this year at SHOT Show in Las Vegas where he showed off both the P320 XCompact and the new Sig 320X V-Tac. Check that out, below.
Smith & Wesson has nine new optics-ready Performance Center M&P Shield slimline models with and without red dots and porting, all with 4-inch barrels.
The new run of compact handguns from the company’s Performance Center is offered in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP and come standard with a slide cut for optics — a move that Smith says is a first for the Shield. Similarly, all come with a HI-VIZ front and rear fiber optic sights, and a tuned action for a smoother trigger pull with a tactile and audible reset.
Overall length is 7 inches while weight is 21 to 25 ounces depending on caliber and optics, specs which largely mirror Glock’s slimline G43 9mm and G36 .45 ACP offerings which do not currently have the option for a factory RMR cut. Smith is promoting the new line as a single-stack carry gun that offers the ability for mounting red dots.
“With the growing popularity of slide-mounted optics, we wanted to design a slim, concealable, red-dot ready pistol for our consumers,” said Tony Miele, the Performance Center’s GM, going on to say the Shield, “felt like a natural fit for development.”
All models ship with a pistol cleaning kit and two mags, one flush and the other a +1 extended finger grip.View this post on Instagram

Federal expands its Top Gun target shotshell line with new loads specifically designed for sporting clay shooters.
The Top Gun Sporting load comes in 12, 20, and 28-gauge as well as .410. With the loads created to suit sporting clay shooters, Federal’s ammo creates high velocities with less felt recoil. Featuring hard pellets, the loads offer Federal’s primer paired with a unique wad column. The result, according to the ammo maker, is consistent patterns.
With warmer temperatures on the horizon, the Top Gun Sporting loads bring new options to competitive and recreational shooters.
“For decades, Top Gun loads have been pulverizing even the most challenging clay targets,” Federal said in a news release. “Now shooters can get that same consistent, trusted performance with Top Gun Sporting, loads specifically designed for sporting clays. They push their payloads fast to shorten leads, yet reduce felt recoil to allow for quicker follow-up shots.”
The Top Gun Sporting Loads retail between $8.95 and $13.95.

California officials are asking a federal court to restore their currently suspended ban on detachable magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.
The long-standing ban, currently blocked by a court order issued last Friday, is needed for public safety, argues California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office. As such, on Monday, California asked the court to swiftly restore the status quo up to last week’s ruling to prevent a sudden influx of new magazines now believed to be legally flooding into the state.
Becerra could be right about one thing: new mags are pouring into the state while the ban is on hiatus. Since the news of U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez’s order was posted, big name firearm magazine makers and distributors such as Beretta, Brownells, Magpul and PSA announced they were open to shipping to the West Coast state that has largely been off limits to otherwise standard capacity magazines for two decades. Meanwhile, local gun shops such as Gunfighter Tactical in San Diego and Sacramento Black Rifle posted they had literally thousands of magazines in play.
To help sway the court to keep the ban switch from being thrown back on, attorneys for the National Rifle Association and their state affiliate, who are spearheading the legal challenge, said the recent influx of new magazines should be considered. They replied that should the judgment be stayed, even temporarily, “countless otherwise law-abiding Californians who have already ordered [magazines] in reliance on the Court’s order but have not received them would unjustly be subjected to severe criminal penalties without notice.”
Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat who has championed gun control initiatives in the past, took to social media to decry that, “A failure to uphold this ban puts our communities in danger. We will not stand for it.”
Arkansas-based Walther Arms said they are responding to calls for adding the legacy paddle magazine release to their new PPQ Q4 and Q5 Match pistols and unveiled the M1 series.
The guns will have the same standard specs as their M2 counterparts, save for swapping out the push button magazine release with the fully ambidextrous paddle, a feature that dates to Horst Wesp’s Walther P99 of the mid-1990s.
“The M1 variants of Walther products have a great following in the US. We received a lot of requests for us to make our optic ready platforms with the paddle magazine release,” said Cody Osborn, marketing manager of Walther Arms USA. “We listen to our customers and we are excited to expand the PPQ lineup with these two new variants.”
The PPQ Q4 TAC includes an optic-ready slide with standard LPA competition irons and mounting plates for common optics. With a 4.6-inch threaded barrel and 5.6-pound trigger pull, the 15+1 9mm also sports an accessory rail and interchangeable back straps.
Like the PPQ Q4, the optic-cut Q5 Match also sports a pic rail, adjustable rear target sights, Walther’s 5.6-pound Quick Defense trigger, and an ambi slide stop. Tenifer coated with a matte finish and polymer frame, it has a 5-inch barrel.
