Amerihide Gun Belts

Amerihide Gun Belt by Disse Outdoor Gear Review

If you’re like me, getting dressed in the morning means that you naturally put on a belt. I guess my short stint in the Army did that to me, but, it stuck. Now it’s very rare you won’t find me wearing a belt. However, we all tend to buy things that fit us. When you […]

Voodoo Tactical Discreet 42" Rifle Case Review

Voodoo Tactical Discreet 42″ Rifle Case Review

As most firearm enthusiasts, I’ve collected many holsters, cases and other accessories over the years. Enough that I’ve got a couple of bins in storage of “gun stuff”. As rifle cases are concerned, I’ve been through a few over the years. I was using a hard plastic double sided case that I bought from Academy […]

The StealthGear USA ONYX Holster

I got my hands on a StealthGear USA ONYX hybrid holster for a look. Out of the box this unit is ready to go to work. They custom fitted it to my Ruger SR9c with a Crimson Trace laser attached. There were a few things I noticed about this holster right away that made it […]

Meet the Smith and Wesson Governor

Meet the Smith and Wesson Governor

Building off the success of Taurus’ Judge line of revolvers, Smith & Wesson decided to join the party. Home defense sales have steadily risen over the last few years, and I think most weapon manufacturers are looking at new and innovative ways to enter and capture their share of the market. S&W took a good […]

Taurus Public Defender Polymer

Taurus Public Defender Polymer Revolver Review

Today we’ll be taking a look at the Taurus Public Defender Polymer .45LC/410 GA. This little hand-cannon holds five shots and Taurus claims it weighs in at 27 ounces unloaded. My scale showed it weighed in at 23.5 ounces (+/- .5 ounces). Coming from the sales success of the Judge revolver, Taurus released the Public Defender […]

Amerihide Gun Belt Review

Amerihide Gun Belt Review

One of the most important pieces of concealed carry gear is a proper gun belt. The gun belt also happens to be the most overlooked piece of gear because it’s not as fun as buying ammo, a holster, or the gun itself. The thing is, if you don’t have a good gun belt, none of […]

Kahr CW9

Driving the Kahr CW9

After reading many reviews, I finally took the time to shoot the Kahr CW9 at the range. I’ve been seriously considering another summer carry in 9mm and the Ruger LC9 and Kahr CW9 were being considered and in the running for top spot. It also means that I will be trading in a gun to […]

The Ruger 22 Charger – Don’t Dodge This One!

The Ruger 22 Charger – Don’t Dodge This One!

The Ruger 22 Charger has been in the Ruger menu for quite some time. I purchased one last year just to see what Ruger could do with a 10/22 action with a shortened barrel. The 22 Charger pistol, introduced in late 2007, is a handgun based on the 10/22 action. The 22 Charger comes with […]

The Maxpedition OCTA VERSIPACK Review

“Possibles Bags” in the form of a waist pack (or “fanny-pack”) have been around for some time. The Maxpedition OCTA VERSIPACK is no exception. The constant search for a means to carry a firearm concealed is always a challenge to those who are legal to do so. The Maxpedition product line-up includes many waist-pack types […]
