TASER Defense  

October 1, 2008

By Mike Siegfried

To prevent a subject from getting near any of your weapons, create a defensive wedge with your two arms and push the subject away. You should then be able to deploy your TASER from the proper distance.

By Nick Jacobellis

If you believe in the old adage that variety is the spice of life, then you will really like the new Beretta PX4 series of pistols.

DPMS Panther Mini SASS Rifle  

August 1, 2008

By Mike Detty

So successful was the 7.62 x 51mm rifle designed for the military that DPMS officials decided to build a 5.56 x 45mm version of the gun. Called, appropriately enough, the Mini SASS, this new rifle has many of the same features that made its big brother so popular.

SIG Sauer P250 Modular Pistol  

July 1, 2008

By Paul Scarlata

With its new P250, SIG Sauer has embarked upon a completely novel concept in semi-automatic handguns—the modular pistol.

June 1, 2008

By Mike Detty

You've probably seen the Kriss Super V Vector SMG on the popular television show "Future Weapons" or perhaps read about it in Popular Science. This new submachine gun has generated a huge amount of interest because of its radically different operating system that reduces the effects of recoil and also controls muzzle climb.

By David Griffith

Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 Revolver  

May 1, 2008

By Nick Jacobellis

The S&W 327 Tactical Rail Revolver is best suited to be used by the lead penetrator of a SWAT team, especially since this revolver carries as many rounds of ammunition as the average .45 ACP 1911.
