I have a CCW permit but very, very rarely carry. Mostly for two reasons:

1: I'm a paramedic. I cannot carry on the job. And I work a LOT.

2: I have yet to find a good conceled holster that I...

I'm just going by what the LEO who secured the weapon said, all Glocks look the same to me. But it was a 40 not a 9.

.38 spl vs. .357 magnum

I was a bit dubious to the difference between these two rounds as when placed side-by-side they're not all that different, only about a mm or two. But on my last range outting, I packed 50 rounds of...

Stupid question

What exactly is a "cowboy" load? I was shopping for some inexpensive range ammo for my GP100 and almost picked up a pack of "cowboy load" 38 spl but put them back in favor of 38 spl wadcuters for $1...

Not really.

Like 99.9% of gun owners my pistols come out at the range and the range only. The less time I spend reloading and the more time I spend shooting the better. With my M&P I can fire 45...

A lot of it has to do with preference.

However when I see someone in a "security" role that has a revolver on their hip, I instantly think less of their ability to do their job. I know this is...

Interesting scenario

One of my instructors regaled us with a story of a call he ran recently that I thought bears repeating here.

A middle aged couple are sitting in their nice middle-class home one evening when they...

Thanks, all

I was fairly sure, but I didn't want to end up with a $160 useless barrel. I just took this gun to the range and I must say I think it's my new favorite piece. It's accurate,...

I'll throw in a vote for the GP-100. Granted it's the only revolver I've ever fired, I very much like it. The trigger is a bit long in DA, but other than that it's a beautiful firearm. I find that I...

M&P question

I recently traded my un-loved Walther/S&W P990 in on a M&P 40. As I was looking it over I noticed the magazines say "40 S&W .357" I've always been interested in the .357 SIG round, but didn't want to...

As a farily person fairly new to firearms myself (<2 years) I can say my strong advise is for either a 22lr or 9mm. Both are cheap to shoot and relatively easy to find (Wally-World almost always has...

First Shotgun

I've been wanting a shotgun in the aresenal for some time. I was walking around at the local gun show and a vendor had a pile of Mossberg shotguns for $199 each. I couldn't resist. I'm now the proud...

Seemed to be a lot of carbon at the point where the barrel extends backward to meet the cylinder (sorry for my ignorance about what that might be called). The relatively high level of carbon build up...

I took it out and ran 50 rounds through it today. The trigger is much heavier in use than it felt in practice. Heavy enough it was causing my shots to be pulled way down and to the right. By...

What he said.

I handled a LOT of revolvers, and only the GP100 sparked my intrest.The SP101 wasn't bad, but the grip felt too small for my tastes. I didn't like the feel of the Smiths and the...

First revolver

I've never been a big fan of revolvers. I can't really place why, I've just always preferred the look of a semi-auto.

However, a while back one revolver in particular caught my eye and has been...
