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. ]

Caleb, of Gun Nuts Media, has just landed his dream job. Congrats Caleb!

I don’t think any of the TFB readers were surprised when Ruger unveiled the Ruger LC9. After the success of the Ruger LCP .380 lightweight compact pistol, a slightly larger 9mm Luger/Parabellum model made perfect sense. Once nice feature of this gun is that a [Read More…]
I am back! My break was moderately relaxing. After destroying my car on a mountain pass last year, I decided to book a plane ticket and fly instead. It would just be my luck that on Christmas Eve a courier driver speeding round a corner rear-ended me Sigh, on the bright [Read More…]
To all my readers: Have a very Merry Christmas. I am taking a short holiday and blogging will resume on the 5 January.
Also new from Browning in 2011 is the Maxus Rifled Deer. As the name suggests, this is a Maxus semi-automatic shotgun configured to shoot slugs. It features a 3″ chamber, fully rifled barrel, Mossy Oak camo, Dura-Coat finish and Cantilever scope mount. The MSRP is [Read More…]
Next year Browning is bringing back the A-Bolt bolt-action rifle chambered in 12 gauge. They are (or will be) advertising that the A-Bolt Shotgun Hunter is capable of 1.5″ groups at 100 yards with sabot slugs. The Shotgun Hunter features the much-liked A-Bolt [Read More…]
The Australian Defense Force has procured $1.6 million worth of HK417 rifles. Presumably they also discovered that in Afghan terrain you need a designated marksmen type rifle in at least 7.62x51mm NATO. [ Many thanks to JamesW for posting the link. ]
Caleb has reviewed the Winchester PDX1 self-defense ammunition for the Taurus Judge revolver … The PDX1 round was pretty obviously designed for the Judge, as there are already decent buckshot and slug loads out there for .410 shotguns. This round uses three [Read More…]
Vegas gun blogger “702″ has posted a review of the LAR Grizzly OPS-4 Upper Receiver with ambidextrous reciprocating side charging handles. I really like the look and can appreciate the utility of a left-side charging handle (I am right handed).
