Korth Sky Marshal

Korth will be showing the Sky Marshal revolver at the 2015 SHOT Show. This six-shot wheelgun is chambered in 9mm and does not need to use moon clips to chamber or extract correctly. Here’s what we know so far…

New Guns & Gear at the SHOT Show

shot show 2015

Make sure you click here to check out my SHOT Show coverage page. I am putting up a lot of the new gun information there on a daily basis. A lot of the gear announcements will not make it into a full article, while significant product announcements (like the new Mossberg Patriot Rifles) will. To make sure […]

New SIG Ammo for 2015


SIG SAUER will introduce a number of new ammunition loads for 2015. Although I’ve not received official word from SIG on these, I have confirmed the information through more than three different sources. New loadings will include at least one new rifle round, several new self-defense pistol rounds and a number of FMJ loads for […]

Hornady Rapid Safe Review

Hornady Radid Safe with gun

Freedom is balanced by responsibility. Nowhere is this more obvious than within the firearms community. Gun owners learn safety rules and they are rigorously enforced by range officers and fellow shooters alike. Securing firearms when not in use is a responsibility that most gun owners take very seriously. Even so, there is the occasional, well-publicized tragedy where […]

New Ruger Pistols

Ruger 22-45 Lite Blue

Ruger is now selling two new pistols: a blue anodized version of the 22/45 Lite and a semi-custom LCP with much improved sights. Both of these guns were added to the Ruger catalog without any fanfare. In truth, they are relatively small changes to the guns. However, they are in line with the company’s response […]

Just days before the 2015 SHOT Show, Ruger will announce yet another new handgun: the SR1911 Lightweight Commander. This new pistol will bring the total number of 1911-type handguns made by Ruger to three. As the name suggests, this pistol is lighter than the existing Commander-sized gun from Ruger. The new Lightweight Commander uses an […]

Caracal Hacked – Loss of Data?

Caracal Hacked

It appears that Caracal – the firearms manufacturer in the UAE – has been hacked. A visit to their website shows a page that Google roughly translates to “we don’t like you because of a political agenda.” In and of itself, this is not something that we would normally cover at GunsHolstersAndGear.com. However, if you […]

Ammo Data Added

Liberty Ammo review

I’ve updated the Liberty Ammunition Civil Defense and the Hornady Critical Duty ammo reviews with chronograph data from additional firearms. The new guns include a full-size Colt 1911, a compact STI 1911, a CZ P-07 and more. One of the more interesting guns I added to the mix was the Black Creek Precision AR-style pistol […]

New Mossberg Patriot Rifles

Mossberg Patriot rifle

Mossberg will introduce a new line of bolt-action rifles at the SHOT Show called the Patriot. The new Mossberg Patriot rifle line is possibly the most complete line of guns ever introduced at one time: more than 50 models are in the initial release. And…there is a reason for the vast number of rifle options at […]
