This beautiful photo was taken by HKG of his S&W Model 27-2 manufactured in 1977. The Model 27 has been a popular gun with consumers and law enforcement ever since its introduction almost 80 years ago in 1935. The ’27 was originally named the [Read More…]
Polenar Tactical released a hilarious video called “Sh!t You See on the Range”. It pokes fun of the many stereotypical shooters one may see while at the range. Hopefully it will bring a smile to your day as it did mine.

A popular platform for building DIY “zip guns” is the humble staple gun that is easily obtainable at your local office supply store. This is a four shot model (not sure if that means 4 shots fired all at once, or four barrels each fired on a single pull of [Read More…]
An interesting product. The video is a bit old. December 2012 and stars Top Shot Bass Pro Shooter Chris Cheng. Challenge Targets made a cardboard target holder with a small twist. They have hinges at the base and a steel plate that is attached to the stand and sits [Read More…]
A friend shared this with me. He does not know the origins and context of the image. As you can see, this person is open carrying inside a Best Buy. Upon closer inspection, he has a right handed Blackhawk Serpa holster but is carrying it on his left side. It looks to be [Read More…]
This beautiful pistol is a ČZ vz. 27 and chambered in 7.65 mm Browning (aka. .32 ACP). I am not sure when this model was first manufactured but it was at least as early as 1939 (feel free to share any information you have on this gun in the comment below). This [Read More…]
To be honest, I am a plastic fantastic fan myself, but I cannot call a plastic gun beautiful … Glock guns simply are not beautiful. The 1911 is a beautiful gun. TFB reader Sean managed to buy this beauty for a very good price in the used section of his local gun [Read More…]
