1911-style pistols run the gambit of incredibly expensive and reliable to incredibly cheap with spotty reliability at best. Rock Island Armory (RIA) has produced a very well made 1911 for a great price. These weapons are accurate, reliable, and a hell of a deal. A lot of 1911s feature a ton of custom details like […]

Possibly the best overall concealed carry weapon? This is one sweet little semi-auto pistol. And the operative word here is “little”. (Or is it “sweet”??) At just under 5.5” in length, 3.9” in height, and weighing less than a pound, this gun can be easily and comfortably concealed. The P238 eats .380 ACP cartridges, and […]

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 […]
