Rock River Arms LAR-8 Varmint A4

February 14, 2011

The advantage of a semi-auto weapon over a bolt gun is obvious. Follow-up shots are much quicker and the felt recoil is much less. Another advantage of the AR platform .308 weapons system is the familiar layout of the selector, mag release, and charging handle.

Diamondback Firearms DB380 Pistol

June 17, 2010

Besides its trim dimensions and extreme light weight, the DB380 also boasts a number of other refinements that make it ideal for backup or undercover carry.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. SR-556 Carbine

March 25, 2010

What sets the SR-556 apart from any other AR on the market is its piston drive upper. Its design is simple and effective and it works as advertised.

FNH USA SCAR 16S Patrol Rifle

December 22, 2009

FN's SCAR is one of the first true 21st century rifles. It features amazing ergonomics and offers exceptional accuracy.

Rock River Arms Elite Comp

August 31, 2009

Every once in a while I run across a weapon that just seems perfect for its intended purpose. The new Rock River Arms Elite Comp seems as though it was designed from the ground up as a patrol carbine, with each of its features created to meet the needs of that mission.

Kahr Arms P380 Subcompact Pistol

June 1, 2009

Kahr Arms just introduced a new subcompact pistol chambered for the .380 ACP cartridge. Weighing less than a pound loaded and only .75 inches wide, this new pistol is small and light enough that it should serve just about anyone's deep concealment and/or backup needs.

Para USA Tactical Target Rifle

February 1, 2009

One of the announcements that took me by surprise at last year's SHOT Show was that Para Ordnance, the Canadian firm best known for its line of high-capacity 1911s, was introducing a new AR-style rifle.

Rock River Arms LAR-458 Carbine

October 1, 2008

Rock River's new LAR-458 is chambered for the powerful .458 SOCOM cartridge, which possesses twice as much energy as the 5.56mm cartridge.

DPMS Panther Mini SASS Rifle

August 1, 2008

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.

Kriss-TDI Super V Vector

June 1, 2008

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.

Kahr PM45

March 1, 2008

Its slim measurements and short height make the PM45 perfect for its intended role as a concealed carry gun. Despite its diminutive size and light weight, this pistol is controllable and effective. Kahr has redefined the criteria by which we judge concealable handguns.

FNH USA PS90 Carbine

January 1, 2008

Like the full-auto P90, the PS90 TR is completely ambidextrous and is blowback in operation. The gun also features a downward ejection of empty cases. But what allows the P90 and PS90 to be so effective yet lightweight is the cartridge that they fire: the 5.7 x 28mm.

Seeing the Light

August 1, 2007

When John Matthews developed the first SureFire flashlight, he realized that for officers to get the most benefit out of the light, they would need special training. So Matthews, now president and CEO of SureFire, created the SureFire Institute, one of the nation's premier low-light combat training academies.

Smith & Wesson M&P15T Tactical Carbine

August 1, 2007

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.

Smith & Wesson SW1911PD Semi-Auto Pistol

March 1, 2007

I think that you'll have to agree that there is a certain amount of irony in seeing a 1911 wearing the S&W logo. After all, it was Colt that brought the gun to market and produced millions for the military and for civilian consumption. But S&W didn't just copy the original design. It has made some changes to the time-honored 1911 to update the gun.

Trijicon Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG)

January 1, 2007
Glyn Bindon was a South African immigrant who came to the United States and worked in the auto industry and also for NASA. He was also the founder of one of America’s most innovative manufacturers of tactical optics.

ArmaLite AR-24 and AR-24K Pistols

January 1, 2007

ArmaLite has long been known for its innovative and trendsetting rifle designs. Now, for the first time in its storied existence, there is a pistol that wears the ArmaLite name.

Scattergun Technologies Tactical Response TR-870 Shotgun

December 1, 2006

Bill Wilson’s improvements on the popular and reliable Remington 870 upgrade it for tactical use. Called the Tactical Response TR-870, this shotgun possesses a host of common sense modifications.

Sabre Defence XR15A3 Massad Ayoob Elite Rifle

November 1, 2006

Prolific firearms writer, weapons instructor, and law enforcement officer Massad Ayoob has spent his professional career analyzing the dynamics of police work. Now Sabre Defence, a relatively new manufacturer of AR-15-style weapons, has introduced the Massad Ayoob XR15A3 Elite Rifle. Built in collaboration with the famed expert, the carbine has all of the features that savvy law enforcement officers need and want.

Kel-Tec PLR-16 .223 Handgun

September 1, 2006

Can an AR-style pistol really hold up to combat conditions? The rugged and accurate PLR-16 can.
