Gear Review: Best 9mm Self-Defense Ammo for Concealed Carry

2021-10-04T13:00:15-05:00June 25th, 2018|

With hundreds claiming the best 9mm self-defense ammo, how do you know which one is right for you? Most first-time gun buyers will overlook the kind of ammunition that they are using, with many picking round nose full metal jacket rounds. These are sometimes not the best choice for self-defense.

Review: Glock 17 Gen 4 — Hit or Miss?

2021-09-30T13:40:12-05:00April 19th, 2017|Tags: , , , |

The Glock 17 Gen 4, in 9×19 mm, is one of the most popular modern handguns in the world. I say “modern” because it has only been in service since 1982. In the gun world, it is still a new design. When it first hit the market, there were several critics of this new “plastic gun that can go through an airport metal detector undetected.” They thought it was ugly, referring to the pistol as the “Block 17.”

A Long Discussion on Short-Barrel Shotguns

2021-10-08T08:16:33-05:00January 27th, 2017|

We have received numerous questions regarding a short barrel shotgun the Mossberg 590 Shockwave. Like other pistol grip shotguns it shoots shotgun shell ammunition, has a barrel length of 14 inches, and an overall length around 26½ inches. It is marketed as a non-NFA weapon, which does not require a tax stamp for possession. The question is: “Is this legal, and can I have one in Texas?”

Gun Trial: SIG P320 Striker-Fired 9mm Handgun

2021-10-14T07:42:40-05:00December 19th, 2016|Tags: |

SIG modified the basic design of the hammer-fired SIG P250 in the SIG P320. In my estimation, the new pistol exhibits a faster lock time, a smoother trigger action and greater practical accuracy, certainly a plus for self-defense shooters such as Members of U.S. Law Shield.

Range Report: Walther CCP 9mm Pistol

The Walther CCP 9mm has generated a lot of attention. Light, attractive, and with the Walther name, the pistol was designed to compete with the Glock 43 9mm and similar size handguns for personal defense. The Walther 9mm pistol is 6.4 inches long and only 1.18-inch wide. The pistol is a slim line 9mm with an 8-round magazine. The barrel is 3.5 inches long.
