  • Snubbies but Goodies

    Snubbies have long been the go-to firearm choice for those pistoleros who desired a small and concealable handgun that could still deliver 5-6 hard-hitting full sized rounds at close range. History In the late 19th century, shortened revolvers like the Bulldog and others were popular with gentlemen, investigators, and travelers for personal protection. By 1927 the Colt Detective, a small framed six-shot double action revolver that fired the then very modern and powerful .38 special round...
  • The ZIP22 an Answer in Search of a Question

    With all of the ergonomics of a nice staple gun but without the quality, there is a new player on the compact/oddball 22LR market. The ZiP22 Why According to US Firearms website on the ZiP, it was designed because, "we believe consumers just want to pull the trigger as affordably as they can . . . all day long."

As soon as I bought the...
  • The Hi-Point C9 Pistol

    Ding ding! The bell has rung and let's come out of the corners swinging. A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on Pistol Caliber Carbines. In that article I mentioned favorably the Hi-Point 995 carbine --while sidestepping over a comment that it was better than the same company's pistols. This brought a firestorm from readers who supported the C9 pistol as a valid and effective handgun, especially for the money. - Elegantly clad in its plain white box, the Hi-Point C9 is not pretentious, but...
