SCARY LOOKING = EVIL

What is an assault weapon? Surely it’s scary looking AR-15 rifles and AK-47 carbines or pistols that are black and hold more than ten rounds, right? [Sarcasm alert] They’re able to make conscious decisions of their own cognisance in order to inflict mass damage without human [...]

WHAT IS AN ASSAULT WEAPON?

DO NOT be ashamed of your assault weapons. Stupid term (here’s why).

Think of all the other inanimate objects that are turned into weapons each year. A baseball bat. A hammer. A pen. A glass coke bottle. An over-sized key chain. The only [...]

Ultimately I feel that it is our responsibility as gun owners to support one another and have each other’s back whether we like a certain type of gun, agree which gun is best or perhaps even have a slightly different take on the second amendment. We are too divided as it is. But when several [...]

I’ve started off a lot of these posts by saying a particular design or gun has surprised me. Which is true. I wouldn’t bring it up or even take the time to post on ho-hum type stuff. I want a new look at something old or a re-design that rocks my world, or something new [...]

One of SHOT Show 2013’s Range Day unexpected gems was the new/remade FNS-9 in a 5″ barreled “long slide” configuration. Last year we were introduced to FN-USA’s new FNS striker fired polymer pistol which boasted a significantly improved trigger pull/reset over their FNP and FNX hammer driven pistols.

Rock Island Armory/Armscor introduced a plethora of new guns at Range Day for SHOT Show 2013. The one that really jumped at the Haus of Guns crew was the new 1911/2011 pistol in a 10mm Auto configuration. It takes an 8 round single stack magazine (sorry New York) and is [...]

The Caracal C 9mm handgun was one of my biggest surprises for range day. It felt great in the hand, was accurate and the quick acquisition sights (Quick Sights from here on) were intuitive and just that… fast.

This year’s SHOT Show 2013 has seen Caracal release another new product in their CC10 carbine. While [...]

I’ve only fired a few Sig Sauer pistols. In the back of my mind I think Sig guns have seemed like snobby weapons to me. MK 25 9mm as used by the Navy Seals for years and years? Don’t care. At least I haven’t cared.

Really I don’t know why I’ve steered clear of Sigs. [...]
