By Nick Jacobellis

Sometimes operators and officers don't take care of their weapons like they should. That's why so many companies have been working on developing a cleaner M16/M4 design. And it's why Bushmaster recently developed the M4 variant that it calls the "Gas Piston Rifle."

Taurus PT1911B Semi-Auto Pistol  

October 1, 2007

By Scott Smith

The PT1911, like other handguns in the Taurus line, sports a lot of really nice "custom" features, it is made from high-quality components and, best of all, it's affordably priced at around $703. Here's my up close and personal look at this gun.

TREXPO East 2007: Best of Show  

October 1, 2007

By David Griffith

In the past six years, I've attended 12 TREXPO conferences. Each time the exposition floor at the conference has had a unique character.

Smith & Wesson M&P15T Tactical Carbine  

August 1, 2007

By Mike Detty

Although Smith & Wesson is one of our oldest and largest surviving gun companies, the iconic manufacturer is a relative newcomer when it comes to tactical rifles. The only problem that I've heard associated with the S&W rifles is their availability. It seems that demand far exceeds supply. Just recently, I received the test sample that I had ordered at last year's seminar.
