I have an STI Lawman represents the high end and Rock Island pistols at the bottom end. Frankly, I have just as much fun with the RIA's as I do with the STI. The STI has snob appeal and the RIA's...

I was able to compete with SKS rifles at 200 yards and won a first and second place award. The little rifles will shoot well but they don't have the "cool" factor of an AK-47. Most SKS triggers are...

I shot a VP-70 in the 70's. It had the heaviest trigger of any pistol I have ever fired. The guy who had it ordered it and we all used it one time. I'd estimate a 15-17 pound trigger pull. It got...

That PA-63 is a nice little pistol. I've had two of them and had no problems with them at all. One of mine had totally blue/black and the other had a silver frame and black slide.

I have two of the KelTec P3AT's and one Ruger LCP. As far as I'm concerned, they are identical with just minute differences. I carry one of them at all times.

I bought a Tech Sight and put it on a beautiful 10/22-22 rifle. Frankly, I didn't like them at all and thought they ruined the slick lines of the rifle. I removed them and sold the set.

My Glock 21 has a polished slide. The black coating on a Glock is applied over Tenifer. Tenifer is as hard as a case hardened gear tooth so the finish is just about scratch proof. I bought the pistol...
