ArmaLite AR-50 review

Nick reviews the Armalite AR-50 .50 BMG rifle at TTAG … The AR-50 was designed to do one thing and do it well: hit targets at extreme ranges. According to their 1999 press release, the rifle is an ” . . . economical, accurate rifle for shooters interested in the [Read More…]

Gun Review: Kahr CW9

The Kahr CW9 is a 9mm pistol from the company’s value line (read: less expensive) of pistols that include the CW40 (.40 S&W) and CW45 (.45 ACP).  I’ve been looking for a single stack 9mm for concealed carry, so I jumped at the chance to review this gun. [Read More…]

Ruger SR9c Review

Caleb has reviewed the the Ruger SR9C. I have now been shooting the Ruger SR9c for over 4 months, and have several thousand rounds downrange through the gun in practice and competition. As I’ve mentioned, I’m quite fond of this gun – when I first started shooting [Read More…]

FN SCAR Review

Another great review from Vuurwapen Blog. One comment I do want to make is that you choose a sling for a rifle, not a rifle for a sling. Vuurwapen used the SCAR rifle for a match. His after-action report is here. [ Many thanks to jdun1911 for emailing me the video. ]

STI GP6-C Review

Brian has written an excellent review of the STI GP6-C (“C” for competition) which he plans on using in the USPSA Production Division. After my first 500 rounds without cleaning, I was very impressed with the GP6-C. There are only two things I would like to [Read More…]

Burris FastFire II review

The Packing Rat has reviewed the Burris FastFire II red dot sight … The RD is small and light weight – it’s likely you wouldn’t notice the difference on Ruger Mark III 22/45. According to the project description, Burris states that the unit is waterproof. [Read More…]

Savage Edge review

Review of SCAR 16s

Jeff and Boge Quinn of GunBlast have reviewed the SCAR 16s and liked what they saw … With the MK 16, FN Herstal has set out to build the world’s best 5.56mm fighting rifle, and the SCAR 16s is as close to that rifle as most of us can get, legally. It is a [Read More…]

Mini-Review: The Dental Pick

One of the most useful gun cleaning / smithing tools I have is a dental pick. The dental pick I use looks like the one pictured 3rd from the right. Dental picks can be used for any number of common tasks such as scraping powder residue out of hard to reach places, [Read More…]

AR-7 rifle review

The Next Chapter reviews the AR-7 IMHO, this is an affordable, expendable rifle. When weight and size are critical for packing, it is something that I can carry for use as a last resort, something that may be just barely enough gun to do get me through an unexpected [Read More…]
