The Bob Or Not To Bob Affair

From its grip to its barrel, the U.N.C.L.E. Special's components are well documented—all except one.

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.

Detonics Combat Master Evolution

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

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.

Ruger .357 Maximum

Many of us handgunners began our centerfire career with the original Ruger Blackhawk. The new Maximum featured a longer cylinder than earlier guns, with a frame sized appropriately for the stretched cartridge and cylinder.

Smith & Wesson M&P15

More specifically, why did a company like Smith & Wesson decide to leap into production of the design, putting its oldest brand name on the new rifle and calling it the M&P. That stands for "Military & Police," and embodies a reputation that has been famous and respected worldwide for more than a century.

The Enigmatic ASP

Having touched on the murky origins of the Detonics MK VII, I can't resist the opportunity to discuss another equally interesting, mysterious and truly unique pistol—The ASP.

Novak's Custom Smith & Wesson 65 Half-Fitz Special

The Novak Custom Smith & Wesson Model 65 is not only a contemporary version of the classic Colt snubnose, it proves even a good defensive wheelgun can be improved upon.

Skinny to the Nines

Short, light and above all, slim, here's a quintet of great 9 mms that'll help preserve your waistline.
