Rock River Arms LAR-8 Varmint A4

Rock River Arms LAR-8 Varmint A4

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.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. SR-556 Carbine

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.

Rock River Arms Elite Comp

Rock River Arms Elite Comp

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

Kahr Arms P380 Subcompact Pistol

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

Para USA Tactical Target Rifle

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.

DPMS Panther Mini SASS Rifle

DPMS Panther Mini SASS Rifle

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

Kriss-TDI Super V Vector

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

Kahr PM45

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

FNH USA PS90 Carbine

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.

Smith & Wesson M&P15T Tactical Carbine

Smith & Wesson M&P15T Tactical Carbine

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.

Seeing the Light

Seeing the Light

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 SW1911PD Semi-Auto Pistol

Smith & Wesson SW1911PD Semi-Auto Pistol

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.
