Korwin: The Great Secret Anti-Gunners Don’t See, Can’t See or Won’t see

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 11:05

This whole concealed carry thing is about being ready to shoot someone. Let’s not sugarcoat it in any way: You get a sidearm (or a dozen) and take at least minimal training (hopefully), or, better yet, lifelong training. And for what? So you know how to safely and accurately shoot someone, or a bunch of someones, if the need properly arises. Our laws back us up.

Bergara’s B-14 Ridge Rifle – Production-Priced Guns with Custom Quality Barrels

Sun, 02/17/2019 - 13:41

Spanish steel. For those with more than a passing acquaintance with history, those words conjure up images of flashing swords, booming muskets and roaring cannons from an era of exploration, conquest, and piracy. For today’s shooters and hunters, those words are more likely to call to mind a brand that takes its name, Bergara, from a town in the gun-making Basque Country in the north of Spain.

Review: The Taurus G2c. Accurate and Functional—And Packing .40 S&W Power–for Under $300

Sun, 02/17/2019 - 13:24

“The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” Okay, so the quote is actually (and incorrectly) attributed to Mark Twain, author of Huck Finn and many other novels. But it could as easily apply to the .40 Smith and Wesson as a self-defense caliber since reports of the caliber’s death were breathlessly hyped a couple years ago when the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced it was switching its duty sidearms from the .40 S&W to 9mm.

Old school handguns have made a comeback in recent months (the King Cobra!), but the ‘Diablo’ from American Gun Works takes that trend to another level.
