Sig P239 Semiautomatic Pistol Review

A reader of this website recently requested that I review the Sign P239, a semiautomatic pistol.  Unfortunately, I don’t own one of these pistols, and don’t have any friends who own one either.  However, the following video review by Nutfancy does a great job discussing this handgun:

SmartCarry Concealed Carry Holster Review

Below is my review of the SmartCarry holster.  I said I would publish this review quite a while ago, right after I got my concealed carry permit, but forgot all about that for 6 months.  Thankfully, a reader emailed me about it, and so here is the review:

Corbon DPX Video Clip

Below is a video clip in which the Corbon DPX (9mm this time) is discussed and tested.  While the testing is less scientific than the testing I referenced in the last article about the Corbon DXP, it seemed worth posting:

Smith & Wesson Model 610 Revolver (10mm and .40 S&W) Review

Below is my review of the Smith and Wesson Model 610 revolver, which is chambered for two cartridges traditionally reserved for semi-automatic pistols: 10mm Auto and .40 S&W.  It is a firearm that I’ve wanted to own for quite a while, and just recently was able to find and buy.

“Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo”

I would like to point out an excellent article entitled “Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo.” That article is the result of extensive testing of various self defense rounds, for handguns, rifles, and shotguns.  I would say it is one of the all around best self defense ammo reviews I’ve ever seen.

My Thoughts on the BedBunker Gun Safe

For the last couple of months, a spammer has been sending me unsolicited emails with links to the BedBunker gun safe, suggesting that I discuss their product on this website.  I’m more than glad to do so now, although I get the feeling that this review is not what that spammer was hoping for: 

Ballistics by the Inch

Those who are curious how barrel length affects the muzzle velocity of bullet should take a look at ballisticsbytheinch.com.  Basically, a few guys fired thousands of rounds of ammunition from barrels of various lengths, measured the muzzle velocity, and put the information online

I generally prefer polymer framed pistols such the Springfield XD, and those manufactured by Glock. This is my review of the Glock 17, which is one of Glock’s more popular 9MM pistols.

As readers of this website may know, I’m a fan of polymer framed pistols such the Springfield XD, and those manufactured by Glock. This is my review of the Glock 22, which is chambered for my favorite pistol caliber, .40 S&W.

Springfield 1911 Pistol Review

The Springfield 1911 is a semiautomatic pistol that has achieved near legendary status in the eyes of many people. This is due in no small part to its design and reliability. Although I prefer modern polymer framed pistols such as the Springfield XD, I also appreciate the Springfield 1911. My review of the 1911 is below.

Streamlight TLR 2 Tactical Light & Laser Review

The Streamlight TLR-2 is a combination tactical light and laser, which mounts on the accessory rails of handguns, shotguns, and rifles. My review of this well built tactical accessory is below:

Selecting a Defensive Pistol Caliber

Few topics are as hotly debated as the question of “which caliber”. This article addresses my thoughts on the topic for semi-automatic (autoloading) pistols, intended for self defense use.

Remington 7600 Pump Action Rifle Review

The Remington 7600 is a pump action rifle, available in a variety of calibers. Its action is similar to that of the Remington 870 series shotgun, making this rifle easy to transition to for those familiar with pump action shotguns. The pump action nature of this rifle also exempts it from some of the more stringent gun bans, which is (sadly) something that must be considered by some law abiding gun owners these days. My review of the Remington 7600 … Continued

FN Herstal Tactical Police Shotgun Review

FN Herstal makes a variety of tactical shotguns which are designed for the rigors of police use, but are available to ordinary citizens. These shotguns are durable, reliable, and highly recommended by this author. My review of the FN Herstal pump action tactical police shotgun is below:

Ruger 10/22 Long Rifle Review

The Ruger 10/22 is a great gun for target practice. It is inexpensive but of high quality, and the ammunition it fires, .22 long rifle (.22LR), is just a few cents per cartridge. My review of the Ruger 10/22 is below.

Crimson Trace LaserGrip Laser Sight Review

The Crimson Trace LaserGrip is a great addition to any pistol or revolver (and is actually available for a staggeringly high number of handguns). Although my favorite laser sight system is the LaserMax, the Crimson Trace LaserGrip is a solid product, and the price savings over the LaserMax make it a great choice. My review of the LaserGrips is below.

LaserMax Laser Sight System for Pistols Review

LaserMax makes a laser sight system for most pistols. What is different about LaserMax is where the laser is located, and I have found this difference to be a great thing. Below is my review of the LaserMax weapon sight system.

Remington 870 XCS Marine Magnum Review

I purchased a Remington 870 XCS Marine Magnum about a year ago, and have put about 3,000 shells through it so far. It has been broken down and cleaned about 30 times. Pictures of my Remington 870 XCS Marine Magnum can be seen here. I thought I would write a review of this shotgun, which is my favorite shotgun so far.

The Taurus Judge – A Revolver that can Fire Shotgun Shells

As I mentioned previously, I received an email from a reader of this site, discussing the Taurus Judge. The Taurus Judge is a unique revolver which can fire either a .45 Long Colt cartridge, or a .410 shotgun shell. I have handled the Taurus Judge, and it seems to be a well constructed revolver. I won’t go into a full review of it, since my main focus is its ability to fire .410 shotgun shells in addition to the .45 … Continued
