Korth x Nighthawk Revolvers

"I shot Korth’s lineup at SHOT Show media day. I’ve never fired a smoother, more accurate and solid revolver. I’m delighted that Nighthawk has partnered with Korth to offer these firearms for sale in the United States…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

ExtraCarry Mag Pouch

Robert Farago writes: "I carry an extra ammunition magazine when I’m out and about. Not just because my WilsonCombat X-TAC Commander 1911 or Kahr PM-9 are round-count challenged. The ammo mag is the single most likely point-of-failure for a handgun. Click? Tap, rack, squeeze. Click again? New mag, please! As for reloading the smaller gun, let’s just say that anyone who hasn’t left a DNA sample in the mag well isn’t operating operationally enough. Anyway, just to confuse the gun muggles, here’s a new clip for your mag…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

Vedder LightTuck IWB Holster

Dan Zimmerman writes: "I recently decided to give appendix carry a try, and set off in search of an appropriate holster for the task. After a little perusal of sites online gun communities for recommendations, I ended up with a daunting list of options. One brand that kept popping up in my searches, though, was Vedder Holsters, and I was immediately impressed at their quick turnaround time…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

Bushnell Elite 1 Mile ConX

"If you want to get serious about shooting further, you’ll eventually need to buy a rangefinder, and if you’re into the technology, the Bushnell Elite 1 Mile ConX might be the ticket. Besides being a mouthful, the Elite 1 Mile ConX is a handheld 7X rangefinder that weighs in at 12.1 oz. It claims to range reflective targets out to one mile (hence the name) and soft fuzzy ones the size of deer out to 600 yards. It can be mounted to a tripod or slung around your neck, and takes up relatively little space in your hunting or gear bag…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

KCT Kydex MOLLE-Link Holster

Tyler Kee writes: "I’m a big Kydex holster fan. Yes, I’ve used some great leather holsters and I’ll concede that for EDC, leather is the most comfortable. But for range days, hiking around, and general “beat it up” duty, Kydex is king. In my preparation for Run n Gun this year, and my a great stroke of luck at a competition prize table, I picked up a TYR Tactical Sniper Harness. It uses MOLLEwebbing as the attachment platform along the belt. Fine for things like mag pouches and various other items, but I’ve never found a MOLLE compatible holster that I liked until now…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

TacShield Magazine Pouches Review

Tyler Kee writes: "The Pistol Magazine Pouch is styled after the Universal Rifle Pouch mentioned earlier. Like those, it features a Velco closure system that is adjustable in length to accommodate different length single and double stack magazines. The tallest magazine I own is a M&P 9 magazine with a base extension that allows it to take 20 rounds. I was easily able to adjust the length of the tabs to deal with this magazine. These closure tabs are also removable for those that want to run an open top mag pouch configuration for easier/faster reloads…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

T.REX ARMS Holsters

Jeremy S. writes: "T.REX ARMS came to my attention after admittedly impressive speed drill videos from their Instagram account kept popping up in my feed. I had more or less sworn off appendix carry for my personal needs, but when I picked up the G19 MOS I decided to give it another shot. I went on a little AIWB and OWB shopping spree on T.REX’s website. AIWB — appendix inside-the-waistband — carry is their specialty, and they do it well…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

One Simple Trick for Choosing Your First Carry Gun

Robert Farago writes: "Finding the perfect carry gun requires the successful selection of size, action type (semi-automatic or revolver), trigger function, caliber, brand and (let’s face it) style. It also depends on how you’re going to carry. Open or concealed or open and concealed? Will you wear your gun in an inside-the-waistband or outside-the-waistband holster? Leather or Kydex? And so on. Here’s one simple rule to guide you to your perfect carry gun…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

Bond Arms Texas Defender

Robert Farago writes: "A few years ago I was looking for a boot gun for deep concealment, and a spare pistol to keep in the truck. As a kid, I often carried a single-barreled .410 pistol. I knew the caliber’s capabilities and limitations. So when I saw a Bond Arms derringer online for about half MSRP, I jumped at the chance to own one…" (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

STI Guardian 9mm 2011

My newfound love affair with the 9mm 1911 recently landed me an STI Guardian double stack 2011. In previous reviews, I’ve gone over the benefits of why I’m liking the 9mm in the 1911. They draw fast, point fast and shoot fast, accurately. When I reviewed the veritable bullet-powered sewing machine that is the STI Tactical DS, I considered switching from carrying my single stack .45ACP 1911 EDC to that gun. Alas, the light weight of my aluminum framed 4″ gun won out for ease of carry and concealability. The answer to that? The STI Guardian… (via TheTruthAboutGuns)

Three First Carry Gun Tips for Beginners

Ever heard of Stendhal syndrome? It’s a condition sparked by too much choice. You’ll find sufferers in front of the spaghetti sauce section of your local supermarket, standing there, staring. You’ll find them at gun stores too. No surprise there. An aspiring gun carrier must choose from dozens of potential guns; a bewildering selection of brands, calibers, barrel lengths, actions and trigger types. Gun store salesmen are notoriously bad at helping customers navigate this thicket. So let me make this really easy… (via TheTruthAboutGuns)
