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.

FNH USA SCAR 17S Patrol Rifle

January 25, 2011

Which brings me back to the caliber debate and leads us into this discussion of the FNH USA SCAR 17S, a .308 caliber patrol rifle. There are agencies and jurisdictions where the extra range and penetration of the .308 rifle is a necessity.

SIG Sauer P220 Compact Pistols

December 6, 2010

SIG Sauer has developed a new line of SIG 220 .45 ACP pistols: one model with a full-size SIG 220 grip and one with a shorter grip that is considerably more concealable.

Remington Model R1 1911 Pistol

November 5, 2010

One of the newest manufacturers of 1911s, Remington is actually an old hand at making these pistols. Recently, I had the chance to field test a preproduction Remington R1 1911.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. KLCR 357 Compact Revolver

October 7, 2010

I am an avowed fan of the revolver in general and short-barreled revolvers in particular. So I was prepared to like the LCR. And I'm happy to tell you it did not disappoint me.

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 Pistol

September 16, 2010

As its name indicates, the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 was designed from the ground up for use by police officers and licensed civilians who needed a small, lightweight, concealable, and easy to use pistol. I believe it would be safe to say that S&W's engineers have delivered just that.

Smith & Wesson M&P15R

August 20, 2010

I'd like to discuss a somewhat unusual rifle choice that can help law enforcement agencies and individual officers realistically cope with the rising cost and shortage of .223/5.56 patrol rifle ammunition. I believe the solution to this problem is for law enforcement agencies to field the Smith & Wesson M&P15R M4-style carbine chambered in 5.45x39mm.

Colt Defense Law Enforcement Carbines

July 30, 2010

From experience I can say that the Colt LE6920 is an outstanding semi-automatic M4-style carbine. It's chambered in 5.56mm and incorporates Mil-Spec features in its design.

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.

Glock Gen 4 Duty Pistols

May 18, 2010

Not only have the ergonomics of the Gen 4 Glocks been vastly improved. So have some of the interior components.

Smith & Wesson M&P Pistol with Safety

April 8, 2010

There can be no denying that Smith & Wesson's Military & Police (M&P) pistol has been wholeheartedly accepted by law enforcement agencies both here in the United States and overseas. So what could S&W do to make this popular pistol even more popular?

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.

SIG Sauer P238 Pistol

February 28, 2010

In addition to being used for backup, the SIG Sauer P238 would be very practical for plainclothes officers who need a "deep cover" weapon or as an off-duty gun.

DoubleStar 1911 Pistol

January 31, 2010

The DoubleStar 1911 is pretty basic - in a good way. Other than the ubiquitous light rail, the design is pretty much what John Browning intended with all of the functions and features exactly where an experienced 1911 shooter would expect them to be.

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.

Guncrafter Industries Glock 21 .50 Caliber Conversion

November 19, 2009

As I watch the large, brass casing fly through the air I hear the loud "PONG!" of the 300-grain .50 caliber bullet slamming into the target 75 yards away....That's right! I said .50 caliber.

Daniel Defense M4 Carbine

October 30, 2009

Having been impressed with the finish, fit, and quality of Daniel Defense quad rails in the past, I was intrigued by the company's new M4-style carbine. I had a hard time parting with it after I was finished putting it through its paces.

Glock G22 RTF2 Duty Pistol

September 18, 2009

Glock recently started selling the G22 Rough Textured Frame Version 2 (RTF2), a pistol that is sure to be just as popular with cops as the standard version Glock pistol.

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.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. Light Compact Revolver

July 31, 2009

At this year's SHOT Show, Ruger wowed the attendees when it unveiled one of the most radically new handguns that has been seen in decades, the Light Compact Revolver (LCR).
