It’s time for another "Stuff John and Chris Wanna Know" — this time, with a fully automatic HK MP5! Everybody knows that shooting full auto is lots of fun. But can it be controllable enough to be useful in the context of home defense? Would a controllable full auto firearm offer any benefits over other […]
"I"m new to shooting, what pistol should I get?" The honest answer is — I don’t know! Just because you’re a beginner doesn’t mean you will have much else in common with other new shooters. There are a lot of guns that could potentially work depending on your specific situation. But there are some handguns […]
After a (mostly) glowing review of the Sig P365 XL, I’m taking a look at its closest competitor: the Glock 48. The G48 (along with the G43X) is threatening to take the place of the G19 as the Goldilocks go-to mid-sized 9mm Glock. The availability of 15-round aftermarket magazines from Shield Arms has made it […]
For a guy who loves DA/SA autos and snubby revolvers, the Sig P365 XL probably seems like an odd choice. But I can’t deny that this is an awesome carry gun. In this review, I’m looking at what I’ve learned to like about the P365 XL after 2000 rounds and a couple of things that […]
It’s a blast from the past! (No pun intended. Probably). I’m looking back at one of our most popular videos ever to provide some new reflections, revisions, updates, and other commentary. Do I still think the Smith & Wesson Model 66 is the best revolver in the world? Did I ever really think that to […]
Small guns are typically at their best when they’re chambered for small calibers. So it was kind of a no-brainer for Ruger to finally make a .22LR version of their wildly popular LCP. Today, I’m looking into why this is such a great idea and whether Ruger’s execution of that idea is equally great. Support […]
We were offered a rare glimpse into Federal’s rimfire plant in Anoka, MN to watch how .22 LR ammunition is made. We all know the basics components involved — each cartridge consists of a case with primer, propellant, and a bullet. Watching them all come together on a massive scale with a choreographed dance of […]
A bunch of people are buying their very first gun right now, so we thought it would be a good time to revisit our Shooting 101 series. This time, we’re doing pump-action shotguns. This one ended up being pretty long, so we cooked up some handy timecode shortcuts for easy navigation: 0:02 – Introduction 1:46 […]
