By 1986 the US Military decided on the Beretta M92 and designated […]

The most beautiful handgun ever? Ok, I know this pistol is modeled after the Walther PP… but I’d venture to say Sig Sauer did it one better. This gun is gorgeous, especially in all stainless. And yes, it’s only a .380, but man does it feel good in the hand (especially with the Hogue grips […]

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 […]

The Jericho 941 is also known as the Baby Desert Eagle, and even occasionally marketed as the Uzi Eagle. If you can’t tell yet, this weapon comes from Israel.

The Walther P22 is a .22 caliber polymer semi-automatic handgun. The factory box contains the gun, 1 magazine and different grip sizes. The gun fit my hand perfectly with the standard grip size. The standard .22 magazine holds 10 rounds. I would classify this gun as compact. This gun is a very good size for concealed carry, although […]
