Inland Manufacturing 30 M-1 Carbine

Sat, 07/14/2018 - 09:07

The .30 M-1 Carbine was used by the U.S. Military in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. The carbine was supplied to allied forces and hung around long after Vietnam. I encountered the M-1 carbine in service with the Bolivian UMOPAR counter-drug police in the 1990s. These fun guns remain popular and effective for civilians today.

What I Love & Hate About the Smith & Wesson Model 360

Tue, 07/10/2018 - 11:27

I will admit my biases up-front. I love these guns and always have. I think I always will. Depending on the day, I choose a J-frame over a slim nine, over a Glock 19 and over lots of other guns. I don’t always, but most of the time I do.

9mm Mag Pump Magazine Loader Review

Sat, 07/07/2018 - 11:18

The Mag Pump magazine loader is a pretty impressive engineering feat. To use it, push a magazine in, dump a box or handful of ammo in the hopper, and start pumping the handle. It's literally that simple. The ammo doesn't need to be oriented or sorted, the loader figures it out and puts it into your magazine in the correct orientation.

Fri, 07/06/2018 - 12:20

Last year, I got my first experience with the Browning X-Bolt, using a Hell’s Canyon model in 6.5 Creedmore. I came away very impressed, my respect for the Browning name rekindled.
