I first blogged about the 40mm Deuce grenade launcher late last year. I was able to handle it at Sage’s SHOT boot and was quite impressed with it. The weight and height is not much more than a single barrel launcher and the width is, of course, the same. According [Read More…]
Larry Zanoff, of Independent Studio Services, has been the armorer for many movies. He built the iconic suppressed shotgun used in No Country For Old Men. This photo was taken by Gregory Markle at the NRA Booth at SHOT Show.

You either love it, or you hate it. The HK45.
The day many thought would never arrive has finally materialized out of thin air! This week H&K finally started shipping the civilian version of the HK416 rifle. I shot it today for the first time and was impressed. It works as advertised. Easy to control and jumps [Read More…]
