Lightning Review: Sticky Holster LG-2 for Glock 19 (and Other Pistols) – The Best “Universal” Holster There Is?

The Glock 19, along with its close clones and equivalents, is in my opinion the ideal “universal” civilian pistol. Small enough to carry concealed, but large enough to shoot well, the Glock can serve equally well as an every day carry gun or as a home [Read More…]

Andrew sent us this nifty photo of the 9mm Smith & Wesson Shield pistol that is his off duty carry. He told us his ammunition of choice is 147 grain  Ranger-T, Winchester’s 3rd generation penetrating hollow point  (1st. gen was the infamous Black Talon).

Revolver Showdown

Jerry Miculek compares a S&W L-Frame against a Colt Python and a Ruger Speed Six. He admits it to us that he is a little biased since he has been shooting for S&W for the past 25 years. After the test firing he does a table top talk and breaks down the features [Read More…]

Beyond Your Target

Here is a good reason to know what is beyond your target. Also a good idea to choose a better backstop. A tree does not make for a good backstop if you constantly use it. It looks like they have been using that large metal plate as a target stand and it was up [Read More…]

An Interesting S&W Factory Error

This S&W Bodyguard 380 was sent to a home-based FFL. Manufactured last month, it was sent from the factory with no slide serrations! Members of the Smith&Wesson Forum suggested that this is no problem as long as he sells it to a customer with a pair of pliers!

S&W is announcing a new pistol tomorrow. Rumors flying around the internet say that it will be called the S&W M&P Shield, will be single stack, chamber 9mm & .40 S&W, and is just a little larger than 9mm sub-compacts like the Ruger LC9 Leaked Specs [Read More…]

9/11 Revolver

Of all the guns I saw when I visited the National Firearms Museum last year, one of my favorite was definitely the S&W revolver recovered from the World Trade rubble. Its owner, Officer Walter Weaver of the New York City Police Department, went in to help but did [Read More…]
