Gun Test: Ruger MAX-9

Modern Ruger semi-automatic pistols, and to that group I shall include the just-introduced MAX-9, don’t quite fall into the late Rodney Dangerfield’s “I don’t get no respect” category, but I think it is fair to say that they do not receive the full faith and credit they deserve. While Ruger has its fans, and I count myself…

CCW Weekend: Airsoft Vs Lasers – Alternative Training Methods Compared For When You Can’t...

By Sam Hoober,  Alien Gear Holsters Bad news: the ammunition shortage isn’t going away until at least next year at the soonest, and that’s being pretty darn optimistic.

CCW Weekend: How And Where To Read Up On Defensive Gun Uses

By Sam Hoober,  Alien Gear Holsters If there’s an idea that most people should embrace, at least in my opinion for whatever that’s worth and at that probably not much, it’s that you should make informed decisions.

CCW Weekend: Feds Kill The Honey Badger

By Sam Hoober, Alien Gear Holsters One of the biggest pieces of gun industry news this week is certainly the Honey Badger being put on the ATF’s naughty list.

CCW Weekend: Should You Get Body Armor?

By Sam Hoober, Alien Gear Holsters If you watch YouTube, a lot of firearms trainers and YouTube gun channel personalities are wearing body armor.

CCW Weekend: Can’t Go To The Range, Can’t Get Ammo, Might As Well Do...

March 28, 2020 3:32 PM ET By Sam Hoober, Alien Gear Holsters Well, it looks like we won’t be shooting any time soon. Just about every state in the union is under a shelter-in-place or stay-at-home order of some kind. While gun stores are intermittently being considered “essential” in some jurisdictions, they aren’t in others. Store…

Don’t Get Trapped By Myths

March 05, 2020 5:20 PM ET By Sheriff Jim Wilson, Shooting Illustrated I suppose it is just human nature that we imagine episodes and events that make us look good. Further, we often see and hear things that sound really cool and repeating them makes us sound like we are really experienced in this business of…

Sheriff’s Tips: Empty Chambers

February 26, 2020 4:40 PM ET By Jim Wilson, American Rifleman Lately I have been hearing that a number of people are carrying their defensive semi-automatics without a round in the chamber. I suppose that this is most often done with a thought to increasing the safety of the handgun and avoiding a negligent discharge.…

CCW Weekend: Enough With The Gimmick Shotgun Ammo Already

February 01, 2020 2:06 PM ET By Sam Hoober, Alien Gear Holsters An irritating trend within home defense ammunition is gimmick shotgun ammunition. Every year, some new bunch of cowboys cook up some New Tactical Terror, and a whole bunch of gullible yahoos think it’s somehow reinvented the wheel or somehow that buckshot or slugs is…
