The RWS Model 34

Most of the reviews that I write feature new products from firearms manufacturers. It is rare that I get to go back and spend quality time with the classics. Enough has been written about them that most of what I will say may seem redundant. But the Model 34 is a classic. And since this rifle is new to me, I’m going to assume it might be new to you, too.

Another Airgun Evolved from the Army’s Modular Handgun System Trials: The Beretta APX

The new 9mm Beretta APX is among the handguns that were considered as a replacement for the Beretta M9 as the U.S. Army’s standard issue sidearm. The gun finally chosen in the Modular Handgun System competition was the Sig Sauer P320 (other finalists were Glock and FN USA).

How does a Pre-Charged Pneumatic Air Gun Work?

The answer is simple, really and the answer is in the question. Pre-Charged Pneumatics (PCPs) are pre-charged. They’re ready to go when you pull the trigger. And they’re pneumatic, which is a polysyllabic word favored by mechanics that means air-powered.

The New SA10 from Umarex

I own a variety of center-fire handguns. More than I’d care to admit (and a lot more than my wife knows about). Not one of them is modified. I will occasionally swap out factory sights, but that is the extent of the manipulations that I tend to make to my pistols. 

Five Reasons Why You Should Train With Air Pistols

I consider myself to be a stalwart defender of the Second Amendment. After experiencing a violent crime when I was in my twenties, I decided to learn everything I could about protecting myself. As part of that mission, I carry a gun every day.

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.

Recreating one of the most important semi-auto handgun designs of the 20th century

The Walther P.38 is one of the most significant of all early 20th century handgun designs. Introduced by Carl Walther in 1938, it was the very first 9mm semiautomatic pistol with a double action/single action trigger.

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.
