Trigger Trainer

The Trigger Trainer is a training device that purportedly helps to improve trigger pull. It makes sense, although I would prefer to use a more realistic trigger that actuates a sear. The Trigger Trainer is $45 and $10 for a set of additional springs.

Heizer Defense Double Tap

I handled the Heizer Defense Double Tap on the SHOT Show floor and liked it far more than I thought I would. While I don’t like the two round capacity, the gun just felt so good in my hand that I couldn’t help but like it. It is light, there is a 12 oz. [Read More…]

PPSS Body Armour has published a video of their CEO being shot by a Glock 19 (9x19mm FMJ 124gr) while wearing body armor. Judging by the pain he is in, it looks he did not stuff newspaper, magazines or a phone book under his shirt before being shot.

USFA M4-410 Pistol

I would be hard not to feel bad-ass carrying the new USFA M4-410 pistol. The .410/45 Long Colt revolver features a short 2″ barrel and a large mean-looking birdcage-style flashhider. No word on pricing. [ Many thanks to Jacob for emailing us the link. ]
