Smith & Wesson 929 Box to Match Review!

Patrick Kelley returns this week with another great Out of the Box and into the Match review! In this series, Patrick takes a brand new gun and shoots a Steel Challenge match. Other than a quick clean and oil, Patrick doesn’t do any modifications or use any after market upgrades, just the same gun you would get if you bought it. This week Patrick is trying out the Smith & Wesson 929 revolver. Continue reading

Ruger Precision Rifle Ready to Rock Right Out of the Box

When initial Ruger Precision Rifle reviews came out, I was skeptical about the gloriously rosy commentary noting groundbreaking features… it just screamed to me that someone was all too happy to whip out knee pads and a bib to be one of the first to review Ruger’s latest, so I waited a until now for my full review.

Rock Island Armory 1911 Box to Match Review, Part Deaux

Patrick Kelley has released a new Out of the Box and Into the Match review video. The gun in question this week is the Rock Island Armory FS Two-Tone 1911 in .45 ACP. This review departed a little bit from the norm as Pat was forced to do some slight tweaking before the match. Usually, Patrick prefers to clean and oil a brand new gun, get a feel for the trigger, and see how well he can run it in a shooting match. Unfortunately, straight out of the box, the RIA 1911 wouldn’t run. Continue reading

C-Clamp: Using a Vertical Surface for Stability

In a dynamic scenario, a smart gunner will use every advantage they can get. In this Trigger Time TV clip, Frank Proctor of the Way of the Gun shows us the “c-clamp.” This technique allows you to use a vertical surface to not only provide cover, but mitigate recoil and add extra support. When you’re reaching out to 100, 200, or 300 yards and beyond, any additional stability is quite helpful on getting that bullet to its target. Want to see how he does it? Watch this short clip: Continue reading

In the Crosshairs: Leupold FX-II 4x28mm Handgun Scope

During my review of the EXTAR AR-15 format pistol, I realized that it had accuracy potential far more than what people give the AR-15-type pistol credit for. It deserved a fitting optic that could take advantage of the accuracy without diminishing the close-range capabilities of the pistol. I chose the Leupold FX-II 4x28mm scope. This scope has enough magnification to deliver on the potential of the AR-15 pistol format with plenty of eye relief for arm’s length aiming. Continue reading

Free Holsters for New and Current REX Zero 1 Owners

FIME Group, the Las Vegas-based firearms importer responsible for bringing MOLOT/Vepr firearms and the Arex REX Zero 1 handgun to the United States, has announced a new promotion giving away free holsters to all REX handgun owners. The 9mm REX Zero 1 handgun is very similar to the Sig Sauer P226, but features operational differences that users prefer. It also holds a $649.99 MSRP, which is substantially less than the over $1,000 MSRP for most Sig Sauer P226 models. As with most firearms from smaller importers, there has been a lack of after-market gear and parts, and the gun is different from the P226 enough that parts and gear are not interchangeable. Spare mags and grips for the Rex Zero 1 are somewhat easy to come by, but holsters have been missing from the market. Now, FIME Group is offering a free holster to all Rex Zero 1 owners.
