Savage A17

At the recent SHOT Show, Savage Arms announced a new semi-automatic rifle chambered for the .17 HMR round.

Bushmaster introduced a new .22 LR rifle at the 2015 SHOT Show called the C-22. Fortunately for shooters, the gun mirrors the controls of a standard AR-15, works with other .223 AR uppers and is reasonably priced. Additionally, Bushmaster offers the rifle with a .223/5.56 upper in a single package. Let’s take a look at […]

Convertible Taurus 85

Convertible Taurus 85 Revolver

Taurus was showing a new convertible revolver at the 2015 SHOT Show. The new version of the classic Model 85 has a thumb spur that (intentionally) twists on and off. The concept, as explained to me by a Taurus rep, is the revolver can be made “hammerless” for concealed carry but revert back to a […]

Streamlight ProTac 1AA flashlight

Small, lightweight and reliable – what else would one want from a ‘carry everywhere’ flashlight? That’s just what you get from Streamlight in the ProTac 1AA. In this review, I take a look at one of the smaller lights in the Streamlight catalog. Does it have a role in your self-defense needs? How does it […]

ATI polymer 1911

At the 2015 SHOT Show, American Tactical Imports (ATI) is now showing a prototype polymer 1911 pistol. This is the same gun that I first brought news of from the 2014 NASGW expo. The new guns are still in a prototype form, but I have been able to get some of the information about what […]

Kel-Tec SUB-2000 Gen 2

At the 2015 SHOT Show, Kel-Tec introduced their new pistol caliber rifle: the SUB-2000 Gen 2.

Olympic Arms MPR 308-15 Multi-Purpose Rifle

Olympic Arms MPR 308-15

Olympic Arms introduced a new rifle at the 2015 SHOT Show that is bound to catch people’s attention. The new gun combines the modularity (and calibers) of the AR-15 platform with the ability to also shoot .308 Win and other short action cartridges merely by swapping the upper. The bonus is the rifle is not […]

ProMag Rollermag

ProMag Rollermag

ProMag introduced a new magazine called the Rollermag. Designed for the AR-15 pattern firearms, these new magazines use followers with wheels to provide a very smooth, anti-tilt follower. It is a new design, and while I do have some concerns, the samples on the show floor were impressive. Here is what I found…

Taurus TCP with Wings

Taurus TCP with Wings

In an effort to assist shooters with limited upper body strength and/or poor technique, Taurus now offers “wings” on the TCP pistol. The TCP with Wings as it is being called is an intriguing idea, but one that may be flawed in its current form. I had a chance to handle one on the SHOT […]
