Umarex Gauntlet Review

Umarex has shaken up the air gun world with the Gauntlet. Pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air rifles have always worked on a sliding scale that tied price to performance. Devotees paid premiums for reliable performance. 

The Umarex Forge

While I was in love with the accuracy and ease of operation, I was frustrated by how fast the gun ran dry. I’d always wanted a gun that could fire indefinitely. Forever. I knew they existed, but I didn’t have one (which may have been a parenting decision that backfired terribly—I mean, look at me now).

The Umarex Trevox

This fall, those rats are doomed. Mice, too. The squirrels might want to consider relocating. I’m taking a Trevox with me. And if it punches wood rats half as effectively as it punches paper, I’ll be happy.

5 Reasons Every Family Should Try Air guns

The first guns I ever shot were air guns. I have vivid memories of an aluminum pie-plate hanging from a clothesline behind my grandmother’s house in western Alabama. My father and I would sit on the back steps and poke holes in the tin with a CO2 powered pistol. It was quality time with my dad. My mom even got into it a couple of times.

A perfect Heckler & Koch full-sized training gun: The HK P30

Heckler & Koch has always catered to a variety of end users from civilians to military and law enforcement by tailoring certain models in multiple variants, like its P30 Series which is offered in V1, V2 and V3 configurations.

The Umarex Top Six

Has there ever been a bb gun this fun? I don’t think so. I know full well that most kids can take any old bb gun and create their own fun, but this one has a built in giggle switch that allows the gun to shoot 6 round bursts.

The Colt Peacemaker

Growing up watching Bonanza, Gun Smoke, Big Valley and John Wayne movies, I’ve had a fascination with the six shooters and lever action rifles. Decades ago airgun manufacturers designed and sold Cowboy style replica air pistols. Over time these models faded away when Westerns became less popular.  

The Umarex S&W M&P40 Becomes A Training Aid For Law Enforcement

Umarex USA and the Bedford County, Pennsylvania, Sheriff’s Office have launched a joint pilot training program for officers who carry the 9mm or .40 S&W Smith & Wesson M&P9 and M&P40 semi-autos.

The Umarex Throttle Review

After Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, the stocks of some of America’s gun makers took a bit of a dive. Pundits claimed it was because our Second Amendment rights seemed much more secure, but I think it is because Umarex has unveiled an all-around beast of a .22—an air rifle that’s going to take a huge bite out of the rimfire rifle market.

Why Airguns?

Usually my first response to the question of “why airguns” is why not? If you like to shoot, airguns are another opportunity to pull the trigger. What I’ve found is that most of the time folks think we airgunners are trying to get people to choose between airguns and firearms, as in one or the other. That could not be further from the truth. It’s not actually one or the other; it’s about adding airguns as another way to get quality trigger time.
