Ruger SR1911 Lightweight Officer-Style Review

Ruger SR1911 Lightweight Officer-Style Review

Beauty and appearance, performance and doing what it is supposed to do, comfortable, right fit, reliable, and optimum weight. These are just some of the adjectives and terms which might describe your new car or even a spouse, the latter even by some uncouth person. Well, I am using them to initially describe the new…

Ruger PC Carbine Review

Ruger PC Carbine 9mm Review

Why would someone want a rifle or carbine that shoots pistol-caliber 9mm ammo? If you use it for home defense, it would be so loud indoors. Isn't a rifle or carbine like this as loud as a shotgun or larger caliber gun? What would you use it for? Plinking or home defense or what? Isn't…

This is even after we demonstrate and discuss the proper…

Alien Gear ShapeShift Backpack Holster Review

Alien Gear ShapeShift Backpack Holster Review

I have used Alien Gear inside-the-waistband holsters now for the past couple of years. First I utilized the Cloak Tuk 3.0, and then I switched to the ShapeShift version of the inside-the-waistband hybrid holster which remains my primary carry holster until now. I have recently had the opportunity to test a newer product Alien Gear…

FIRST REVIEW: Springfield-Armory 911 .380 Sub-Compact

FIRST REVIEW: Springfield-Armory 911 .380 Sub-Compact

Springfield Armory recently introduced a very small, lightweight, short-barreled .380-caliber pistol with an enhanced G10 pivoting single-action trigger with 1911-styling for concealed carry. It is called the 911 .380 ACP and Springfield Armory promotes it as "the ideal carry pistol or backup gun." I was anxious for Springfield to send me this new sub-compact pistol…
