Sturm, Ruger, & Company made a splash recently with the Max-9, a micro 9 mm with up to 12+1 capacity. Now the company is back again with the Ruger LCP Max, which is an ultra-compact pistol chambered in .380 ACP that has a capacity of 10+1 rounds. Uniquely, the LCP Max has …

Its bullpup design was hard to ignore, though, as was the pair of rotating, tubular magazines—with a 6+6+1 or 7+7+1 shotshell …

This gun will feature the classic mechanisms of the A300 platform with newly enlarged controls, an improved receiver, and the proprietary Beretta Kick-Off recoil reduction system. “The new A300 Ultima offers a unique opportunity for shooters to …

“Nature abhors a vacuum.” No, that doesn’t mean Mother Nature has it in for Hoover or Dyson. It means that forces compel an empty space to be filled. If there has been a notable empty space in the firearms market the past several months, it is the one that was …

I recently acquired a sample of the Dan Wesson Bruin 1911 pistol chambered for the 10 mm cartridge. Like many ideas for articles, there’s a story behind this project. Our son Brock loves bear hunting and chasing hounds here in the Allegheny mountains. Last year, while negotiating a “Laurel Hell” following the dogs, …

In the spring of 2019, Henry Repeating Arms introduced the new Side Gate Lever Action rifle in a number of chamberings.
