New Shotguns

Shotguns: What’s New In 2022

Although I tend to believe being well trained with any shotgun is better than being untrained with the best one, why not be well trained with a great gun? To that end, here are a few defensive shotguns for all tastes, and all-new for 2022.

First Look: TAC Six Branded Shooting Cases from Allen Company

Gear designed for the tactical market that performs at a higher level.

What’s the difference between a tactical reload and a speed, or emergency, reload? We teach both at Gunsite and, while I hope you never have to perform a speed load in a gunfight, I’m pretty sure you’re going to do tac loads routinely as part of your regular practice or even day-to-day carry.

Review: N8 Tactical FLEX Concealment Band
