Springfield XDm 3.8 Compact

This has got to be the most confusing gun launch launch since I started blogging. A couple of readers emailed me about the launch of the XDm 3.8 Compact but I thought this was the XDm 3.8 launched last year. Why was I confused? Because Springfield’s marketing [Read More…]

Ruger P90TH (With Chrome Bling)

The Ruger P90TH is a relatively nice looking special edition Ruger P90. It features a frame with a grey anodized finish and shiny chromed (or shiny stainless?) hammer and safety. Instead of, in my humble opinion, the awful looking Ruger P-series grips it features Hogue [Read More…]
