Smith & Wesson Model 22A Discontinued

Model 22A discontinued

Smith & Wesson discontinued the Model 22A line from its catalog, and has no public plans to reintroduce it at a later date. Last year rumors began to circulate that Smith & Wesson was dropping the rimfire pistol from the company’s line up, but the gun remained on its site and in its catalog. I […]

Heizer Logo

From the creators of the Pocket AK comes a new pistol: a subcompact, semi-automatic .45 ACP called the Heizer PKO45. Still in development, the PKO45 is a very thin pistol designed around a single-stack, five-shot magazine. Although the company is still finalizing parts of the design, the basic gun is complete. It will be approximately 0.7″ […]

Palmetto State Armory AK

Palmetto Armory AK47

Palmetto State Armory (PSA) is launching what may be one of the best values in AK-style rifles today. The new rifles are 100% made in the USA, establish a new standard and are very well priced. PSA showed the new rifles at the 2015 SHOT Show in January, but have made a few tweaks since then. […]

Remington R51 Update

Remington R51

I spoke with a Remington representative at the 2015 NRA show about the status of the R51 pistol. There has been a wide range of speculation about the gun ever since it was recalled in 2014. At that time, fixed guns were expected to be returned to owners by October 2014. It is now April […]

The Why of the Glock 43

taking a first shot

Donna Hobbs. You probably don’t know Donna, but you should. She is the reason behind the new Glock 43. Donna, and millions like her. The latest micro-9 was not developed for Donna because she is a woman, though the gun works perfectly well for her as a woman.

Latest News & Reviews

Taurus 905 review

In the days and weeks after the SHOT Show, things in the gun industry can seemingly calm down. While there have not been any major gun announcements (save one…), that doesn’t mean I’ve been just sitting around waiting for spring to show up. Quite the contrary. I’ve managed to secure some information about new products […]

Escort Raider Shotgun

Escort Raider

The Escort Raider is one of the shotguns introduced this year by Turkish manufacturer Hatsan Arms Company. Much like the Diamond SWAT 12 shotgun I previously discussed, the new Raider is a box magazine fed, semi-automatic scattergun. Unlike the Diamond-manufactured gun, Escort firearms are already imported into the United States by Legacy Sports, so I […]

Diamond SWAT 12 Shotgun

Diamond SWAT 12 shotgun

Turkish manufacturer Matsan A.S. showed off the new Diamond SWAT 12 shotgun at the IWA Outdoor Classics exposition in Germany. Quite a few Turkish shotguns come into the US market through various distributors, and in some cases, branded with a US manufacturer’s name. So, I suspect that we will see these in this country – […]

Safariland 578 Pro-Fit Holster Review

Safariland 578 Holster

A giant box of unused holsters. That’s what a lot of people have in their garage or basement. Rigs in leather, Kydex and soft nylon that didn’t quite fit or maybe did not hold the gun well enough to be used. Some of them were tossed aside because they simply were not comfortable. What if […]
