TFB Review: TYPE-A EG-19 Pistol – Part 1

Back in December I first got my hands on the TYPE-A EG-19 pistol and was pretty enthralled with it.

Usually, this is with me when I am going on trips or long distances. I will also take a handgun but having something else to protect yourself is never a bad way to go.

They do mostly government and Law Enforcement contracts for various departments around the country but are pushing more into the commercial market.
