Olympic Arms Enforcer

The Olympic Arms Enforcer is not your typical 1911. Loaded with semi-custom features, it has all the elements required in a fine defensive handgun.

Guide to Plinking

Here's just about everything you need to know to have a blast with the most enjoyable type of shooting—plinking.

.32 NAA Cor-Bon 60-grain JHP

The .32 NAA is a little-known personal-defense cartridge, but it remains adequate for personal defense.

Adams Arms AR-15 Piston Conversion Kit

Adams Arms has the solution for those looking to turn a direct-gas-impingement operated AR-15 into a piston-driven workhorse.

Make Your AR Ready for Low-Light Self-Defense

To defend yourself, your home and your family, being prepared for close encounters in low light is vital. Setting up your AR for nighttime self-defense is easy, if you follow these steps.

Law Enforcement Trade-in Pistols

When I have been asked this question by acquaintances, I have suggested they consider law enforcement (LE) trade-in pistols. My reasoning is, by the nature of their duties and the research and testing resources available to the departments that select them, pistols formerly used by LE organizations can easily fit all the above-mentioned criteria.

Pocket Pistols

While .380 ACP pistols are far from new—having first seen the light of day in the early 20th century—these are all fresh. More importantly, they are all very small and very light.

North American Arms Mini-Master

Compared to its 4-ounce, 3 5/8-inch Short Mini-Revolver cohort, North American Arms' Mini-Master is a giant. But at 7 7/8 inches long, 3 5/8 inches tall and weighing 10.7 ounces, it is still more compact and lightweight than most of the centerfire handguns on the market.

Charter Arms Southpaw

For cloistered lefties, like myself, the Charter Arms Southpaw provides sanctuary. The cylinder and ejector rod swing out to the opposite side so the left-handed contortions (penance) during a reload are no longer required. It's really a reverse-configured version of the company's Undercover Lite.

Charter Arms Crimson Patriot

The Patriot family includes three variations, all built on Charter's well-known Bulldog frame. Common across the line is a six-round cylinder, with the biggest differences between the guns being barrel length and sights.
