CMMG AR15 Muzzle Loader

At the 2012 SHOT Show, Aaron brought us a video of a muzzle loading, black powder AR-15 upper from CMMG.  At that time, it was unknown if the company would actually bring this to market.  Well…they have. The one and only AR upper that turns your modern rifle into a black powder gun is a […]

Life of Duty at the SHOT Show

Caracal Pistol Photos


The new Caracal pistols made a minor stir at the 2012 SHOT Show.  The guns felt good in the hand, and shot well at Media Day, but time will tell if they are as reliable as other polymer guns currently on the market.  (Update:  They apparently were not as reliable as other polymer guns on […]
