The 2014 Springfield Armory 1911 Range Officer in 9mm Review

For some time, 1911 aficionados and International Defensive Pistol Association competitors have wanted a reasonably-priced alternative single-action, single-stack gun in 9mm without a lot of “whistles and bells” that will be reliable to complement the 1911 in .45 caliber.

3 Sling Choices for Your Rifle

In my opinion, there are a few must haves for every rifle you own. First, you’ve got to have sights whether you’re using iron sights or an optic. Second, you’ve got to have a lighting system, and finally, you need to have a sling. The truth is, I’ve never had someone show up to one […]

3 Guns from SHOT Show

Last week was the annual Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show. To give you an idea of what it’s like, just imagine a chocolate lover getting to spend the week in Willy Wonka’s factory.
