Aero Precision’s Slim One: The ATLAS S-ONE Handguard

Sun, 03/31/2019 - 09:03

Originally, I set out to build an upper solely to test the Bergara 20” AR-15 barrel so I was not looking to spend a ton of money on a new handguard.  After a failed start using a free float tube that I got on sale I was on the hunt for something that was affordable, free floating, and modular.

Mossberg 590A1 Retrograde – A Birthday Present from Mossberg to Us

Sun, 03/31/2019 - 08:36

The Retrograde to me says awesome hair, flight suit, and a really bad attitude cause Ronnie Reagan told us to. Holding it in your hands, you can almost hear the rotors spinning on a Huey and “boarding party to the flight deck” coming over the 1MC. That alone is worth the price.

Head-to-Head: NEW Ruger Competition 10/22 vs. Custom 10/22 Build

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 18:02

Ruger, at long last, has taken notice of the aftermarket 10/22 world, and late last year the company’s new Custom Shop put together the 10/22 Competition Rifle. It’s a sweet shooter, and it comes with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a premium .22 firearm.

But how does it stack up against a custom build? That’s the question I wanted to answer, so I reached out to one of my gun buddies who owns one. Before we get down to the nitty-gritty, you should know a few things about Ruger’s new Competition 10/22.

Legislation Would Stop Big Banks from Defunding Gun Makers, Sellers

Thu, 03/28/2019 - 13:18

“It’s not a bank’s job to create policy. They need to leave the policymaking to Congress,” said Sen. Kennedy in a statement. “Banks should not be able to discriminate against lawful customers on the basis of social policy. The banks should keep in mind that these lawful customers are the same hard-working taxpayers who bailed them out during the recession.”

Solid, Accurate, & Reliable: The Defiant STOCK 1 from Tanfoglio

Sat, 03/23/2019 - 11:53

Accurate and very comfortable in the hand, the Defiant STOCK 1 clearly has many uses beyond competition, including home defense, hunting, law enforcement use, open carry, and just plinking. It strikes me as a little large for concealed carry, but there are people who no doubt would find this full-sized handgun just right for that purpose, too.

Glock’s New G45 vs. Glock 19X – Review

Sat, 03/23/2019 - 11:33

I’m not a cop. Never been one. Never played one on TV. And while I fully understand why this new G45 model from Glock, dubbed their “Crossover” pistol, is exactly what some departments have wanted, and what I predict more and more will adopt, I think they’ve struck handgun gold here for the civilian market as well. This baby is a shooter!
