Editor’s Pick: Gun Information Downloads for Revolvers

  Gun Information: Now in Downloadable Form A couple weeks ago, I told you about Max Prasac’s new book, Big-Bore Revolvers. Now, revolvers tend to be simpler guns, mechanically speaking, than semi-automatics. Still, things break, parts wear down, some people want to customize, and others want to take these things apart and put them...

Knives 2013 book review

Editor’s Pick: Knives 2013 – The World’s Greatest Knife Book

  I’ll be upfront and say that, while I have on occasion swooned over a counter display of  pocket knives from Case (I just love the rainbow of colors), or a skinner collection from Buck Knives, I know little about blades and hilts beyond the couple skinning knives in my deer hunting pack and...

Editor’s Pick: Gun Digest Illustrated Guide to Modern Firearms

  We’ve had a very bright and sweet intern from one of the colleges in the region working for us this summer, and yesterday, along with the other interns, she gave a, “What I did during my summer internship” presentation. Seems she did enjoy our time with us, but one comment she made that...

I’ve long had an affinity for fine shotguns and double rifles, even if my wallet hasn’t, but I’ve been fortunate enough to have at least drooled over some very fine and outrageously expensive guns firsthand and even shoot a few now and again. I remember, in particular, one little gun shop in Easton, Maryland,...

Blackhawk pistol belt

Secure Your CCW With A Solid Belt

  A cheap belt will not serve you well as you carry a concealed firearm. It will twist and droop. The Blackhawk Pistol Belt uses an internal stiffener to insure your pistol stays tight and close to your body. These carbon-fiber and lizard skin finished belts give you the same appearance as any other...

3-gun shooting competition book

Editor’s Pick: Complete Guide to 3-Gun Competition

  Back in the day, I had a boyfriend who shot IPSC matches. (International Practical Shooters Confederation is the global parent of USPA, the United States Practical Shooting Association.) I’d met him while I was working in a retail gun store in Northern Virginia, one that had an indoor handgun range that hosted a...
