The Sphinx pistols look great and feel great. They shoot with a guaranteed accuracy of 2″ at 25 yards. More on them tomorrow. I have been up since 6am and my laptop battery is about to die on me. Lots more photos tomorrow. [ Many thanks to Byan Jones for the [Read More…]

You either love it, or you hate it. The HK45.
The day many thought would never arrive has finally materialized out of thin air! This week H&K finally started shipping the civilian version of the HK416 rifle. I shot it today for the first time and was impressed. It works as advertised. Easy to control and jumps [Read More…]
Because y’all like photos, here are some random photos …
The Ruger GunSite Scount rifle was very nice to shoot. I love the Scout Concept and this is a Scout done well and relatively cheaply. If you decide you don’t like the scout-scope, standard Ruger rings attached to the normal palce.
I had the opportunity to try Surefire’s new 60 round and 100 round double stacked AR-15 magazines. The 100 is big and heavy (move over Saiga-12) but the 60 is not much longer than a standard 30 round magazine and the weight is not so bad. This is going to be a [Read More…]
Today Media Day, media shooting day held a day before the actual show, car dove in front of the live firing line. WTF? I was shooting a 9mm carbine at the time. Other guns shooting at part of the range included .338 Lapua’s, and 7.62mm NATO machine guns!!!!!! EPIC [Read More…]

AXTS’s A-DAC is a nifty lower receiver for the AR-15. What differentiates it from standard mil-spec lower receivers is that the magazine release button, along with releasing the magazine, manipulates the bolt catch. Why would you want this feature? It makes [Read More…]
In November last year I reported on a tip I received that the French Army was about to purchase over 10,000 FN Mag machine guns. This deal has now been made public. The French are purchasing 10,881 machine guns from FN for 100 million Euros! The contract most likely [Read More…]
Tobias, of Kel-Tec, emailed me this photo of the Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun stripped down. I can’t wait to get my hands on this gun! [ Many thanks to Tobias for emailing me the photo. ]
The latest video by TFB reader Aegeanhawk shows Hellenic Army National Guardsmen firing a pretty cool H&K G3A4 packed with a EOTech sight, forend rails (Brügger & Thomet rails?), bipod and foregrip. The setup looks really good.
How awesome was that shot [ Many thanks to David for emailing me the link. ]
