We are a little more than half-way through the year, I have started a compilation called Handgun Reviews 2012. As you might imagine, this is a list of various pistol and revolver reviews from this year. In the list are some reviews that I have done here and on other sites, plus a few from some of our contributors on their own sites.
I’ve got a bunch more that I am loading up, and more that I have scheduled for later in the year. So, make sure you check back for additional handgun reviews.
- Charter Arms Pitbull
- Diamondback DB9
- Glock 26
- Kahr CM9
- Kahr CM40
- North American Arms 22MS Revolver
- SIG SAUER P224
- Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380
Here are some of the 2012 handgun reviews that are on You Tube. Some of these reviewers are producing video that rivals what the “pros” are doing on cable TV. Definitely check them out and subscribe to their channels!
This review of the Kahr CM9 pistol was done a few months back. Since then, I have purchased the gun and shot it a lot more. It is an excellent pistol and I love it. I carry this one as a pocket gun with the standard magazine and as a backup gun on-duty as a police officer with the extended magazine. No problems and it is a smooth shooter!
Smith & Wesson Shield
This is more of an introduction than a review per se. This was filmed at the 2012 NRA show and features a Smith & Wesson rep running down the features and attributes of the new handgun,.
SIG SAUER P224
This all new SIG SAUER autoloader was shown at the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. One of writers, Randall, had a chance to spend some time shooting it. He really liked the gun, as did most of the other press at the range event.
Springfield surprised everyone with the introduction of this new compact .45 ACP pistol. These videos show us shooting the gun and talking to Rob Letham about it.
2012 has seen the introduction of a variety of new revolvers and pistols, plus the re-introductions of a few classics. And the years is not over yet. We are hoping to get our hands on a couple of surprises coming out in the near future, so stay tuned!
As new we roll out additional handgun reviews in 2012, I will post them here. I’ve got several already written, but in need of editing, so please bear with me!
