Byproduct of a Bad-Ass, Pistol-Packing Irishman

To help pass the time until my U.N.C.L.E. carbine returns, I thought I'd treat you all to a sneak peak of a feature I'm been working on for Shooting Illustrated involving another pistol near and dear to me—the Colt Fitz Special.

Perfect Fitz

The modifications J.H. FitzGerald made to wheelguns more than 80 years ago paved the way for the modern snub-nose revolver.

New Sizzle for Ruger Standbys

When Federal announced the new .327 Fed. Mag., Ruger responded first with its SP101 small-frame revolver chambered for the high-velocity round.

Taurus Judge Public Defender

Taurus makes a decided case for concealed carry.

El Presidente

Jeff Cooper's legendary El Presidente drill is a great way to train for accuracy, power and speed.

Snubby Ballistics

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

.38 Spl. +P Hornady Critical Defense 110-grain FTX

See how this new, purpose-built load from Hornady performs in gelatin.

.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?

.45 Long Colt 250-grain Speer Gold Dot

The .45 Colt is not generally considered a self-defense cartridge, but the introduction of the Taurus Judge has changed that perception.

.38 Spl. Winchester 110-grain Silver Tip (2- and 4-inch barrels)

Our expert tests this popular self-defense load in revolvers with two different barrel lengths.
