USA Carry Gun Belt Review

USA Carry Gun Belt Review

When it comes to carrying a handgun, without a doubt a strong, high quality belt makes a major difference. Some even suggest that it is even more important than the holster. I believe that both are certainly important for effectively and safely carrying a handgun, especially concealed. So my goal is to use a high-quality…

Top 10 CCW Firearms For Ambidextrous Shooters

First, what makes a gun ambidextrous? Magazine ejection - is it accessible from the left or right hand? Safety - can it be accessed easily from either side?

[REVIEW] Taurus Millenium G2 9mm Sub-Compact Striker-Fired Carry Pistol

[REVIEW] Taurus Millenium G2 9mm Sub-Compact Striker-Fired Carry Pistol

The newly-designed Taurus Millenium G2 9mm sub-compact carry pistol appears to be a gem among some rough stones. The G2 is a replacement for the Millenium Pro model. There are quite a few rumblings about Taurus guns and some are not open to even discussing related current information and products. Before I address the G2,…

Kel-Tec KSG vs. UTAS UTS-15

Kel-Tec KSG vs. UTAS UTS-15

Much has been written and said about this comparison. I wasn’t sure that more needed to be said or written about the subject since there are many outlets that have done this very comparison. However, I decided to do this a little differently. I wanted no influence from either manufacturer. So, I put my money…

Beretta 1301 Tactical Shotgun

Beretta 1301 Tactical Shotgun Review

In the beginning In mid-2004 Beretta released the Xtrema 2 semi-automatic 12 Gauge shotgun in the United States. A buddy of mine showed me a YouTube video of the Beretta pro shooter demonstrating it.

There are a lot of fine holsters out there now, including kydex, leather, and hybrids that blend both leather and kydex materials. Leather has its advantages and kydex also has its advantages. All holsters have pros and cons. I have some excellent holsters made of leather and others made of kydex, but I wanted to…

Grey Ghost Griff Pack Review

Grey Ghost Griff Pack Review

Summer is finally here and it’s time once again to start thinking about how you’ll conceal carry without wearing as many layers as you did during the fall and winter months.

Dan Wesson Valor 1911 Review

I’ve made no secret that I’m not a ‘1911 guy’. I know that many of you out there are die hard 1911 fans. So, since I am fair and equitable (balanced) I thought I’d do a review on a 1911 since I am a CZ guy. It just so happens that CZ also owns Dan…
