The CZ V61 Skorpion machine pistol was quite the revolutionary idea for its time, introduced in 1961. When the term “personal defense weapon” started being passed around, it described a small submachine gun for truck drivers, tank drivers and non-front line personal.  This was the reason the CZ V61 was brought into service. Currently it […]

This unique gun has created quite a stir among handgun enthusiasts. Some hate it, some love it. Put me in the latter category. The main attribute of the Italian-made Chiappa Rhino that has polarized everyone is that the barrel is aligned with the bottom cylinder chamber. (See the 2nd photo.)  This was done to reduce […]

This gun is the classic K-frame revolver… mostly because it’s the first K-frame revolver. The 1899 was also essentially the first Military and Police revolver. Our troops carried this as one of the last revolvers issued to them. It was the gun that made the 38 special the round it is today. This particular example […]

The Bryco 38 is part of the tradition that companies like Raven and Jimenez started. They produced cheap semi-automatic handguns that have adopted the moniker of the Saturday Night Special. Both the cheap materials and cheap appearance of these firearms have given them an unjust reputation. In my experience, these firearms always go bang when […]

Kel Tec has always been a company a little bit on the fringe of the normal gun companies. They produce some awesome long guns, but occasionally the quality on their handguns has been hit or miss. They do have an awesome warranty and great customer service, but that’s not much help if the gun stops […]

If you took a poll of gun enthusiasts about what sparked their interest you’d hear Westerns more than once. Guns and the romantic Old West we envision in films go hand in hand. Even if you didn’t poll gun enthusiasts, you could simply look at the fact they still produce revolvers based on a 150-year […]
