Detonics Combat Master Evolution

What was once old is new again. Check out the latest from legendary 1911-maker Detonics.

Snubby Ballistics

Shorter barrels are much easier to carry, but what are you giving up when trouble starts?

Remington .17 Fireball

Speed in a varmint cartridge is like blonde hair in a bikini contest: highly desirable, but certainly not the only thing that counts.

.22 LR for Self-Defense?

More bad guys are stopped by .22 Long Rifle ammo every year than any other chambering, but is it a good choice for personal protection?

.357 Mag. Federal Low Recoil Personal Defense 130-grain Hydra-Shok

The Hydra-Shok is a fantastic bullet. Learn how it performs in the equally legendary caliber—the .357 Mag.

Bullpup Battle

Associate Editor Ed Friedman, a man with no combat experience whatsoever, tries to argue for the bullpup-style rifle against grizzled SOF veteran and Rifles Editor Steve Adelmann. You pick the winner…

Sig Sauer P250 Compact

At the heart of the P250's modular capabilities is its fire-control assembly, or frame. The versatility is made possible by the fact that, unlike most polymer semi-autos, the 250's hammer, sear and trigger, are contained in a single unit.

Smith and Wesson Combat Magnum

In the summer of 1954, at the Camp Perry Matches, Carl Hellstrom, president of Smith & Wesson, collared an extraordinary tall pistol competitor who happened to be with the U.S. Border Patrol and picked his brain as to what the lawman/pistol competitor would like to see in a duty revolver.

Taurus Model 605

At the first glance, the Model 605 B2 reveals key K.I.S.S. characteristics. Marketed in the small revolver line, the high-luster blued Model 605 B2 is not Taurus' smallest revolver, but weighing 24 ounces and measuring 6 1/2 inches long and slightly more than 4 3/4 inches tall, it makes for an easy carry option.

Snubby Ballistics

"Snubby"is a term that has crept into the shooter's lexicon to identify those revolvers with exceptionally short barrels. There is no sound reason why anyone would want to abbreviate a handgun barrel to a degree that would interfere with the gun's ballistic performance, unless they want to create a revolver that is easier to conceal in most clothing.
