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: 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. Informed decisions are based on reality, on what’s observable or measurable and established rather than resting on logic…

Video Surfaces Showing Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock Mocking Churchgoers for Wanting to Defend Selves...

A video has emerged showing Democrat Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock mocking churchgoers for wanting to defend themselves with guns. The video shows Warnock speaking against the Safe Carry Protection Act, which Georgia lawmakers enacted in 2014.

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. A number of instructors have advocated in print that the armed citizen should have it as well. Since the civilian market for guns and other gear mirrors or otherwise takes inspiration from…

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.…

Gun Test: Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield EZ

“That’s great, but when will you have a 9 mm?” If not discounted out of hand, that was one of two likely responses to the Smith & Wesson M&P380 Shield EZ chambered in .380 ACP. The other was, “I’ll take it.” This gun in its .380 guise represented a solution to what many gun company executives didn’t…

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.
