The M3 is a rifle designed for fast action and defensive accuracy, engaging targets at 10 to 25 yards is incredibly fast for a nearly 70-year-old design. The often frowned upon .30 carbine cartridge is a good man-stopper with modern ammunition, contrary to popular belief.
When Serbu asked us if we’d like to do a review on a rifle, our answer, as it always is, was “of course!” The gun that arrived for our testing was this BGF-50A, one of the smoothest and most accurate rifles we’ve ever reviewed. One MOA from a .50 BMG. What more could you ask for?
One of my many New Year’s resolutions is to get in shape. I’m not talking about my gut (though that, too). I’m talking about my shooting skills. It has been years since I’ve taken a class, and after doing some training with Daniel Shaw at Thunderbird Tactical in Wichita, Kansas, I discovered I’m a bit rusty.
The 2014 SHOT Show cranks up in less than two weeks. We’ll be there, cameras rolling, chronicling all of the new product launches. Until then, we offer these predictions. Here’s what we’re looking for in the upcoming year.
I review upwards of 50 guns a year. Almost all of them do their jobs well. Picking ten that stand out isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. But here’s the list of the year’s best. The ten best from 2013.
As a Virginian, I watched the run up to the state’s gubernatorial election with a growing sense of dread. When the votes were cast, and the Democratic candidate came out on top, I knew it would get ugly. And I’m not alone. Beretta had been eying the Old Dominion for their pending move. Not anymore.
With the holidays behind us, it’s time to shop for yourself. Time to pick up some of the gear you really want for that new pistol. KT Mech is a great choice for holsters. Their Defender is designed for functional full sized gun, and can be customized for lights or lasers.
Times are tough for quasi magical philanthropists. First no one believes you’re real, and then, when you show up in a sleigh packed with holiday cheer for all of the good boys and girls of the entire world, you become a target. So we’re asking–what’s Santa packing?
Here’s the scenario. You’re an over-the-road trucker. You frequently drive across state lines. Sometimes you pull off in some questionable areas to make deliveries, or catch some sleep. Can you carry a gun in your truck? Can it be concealed?
Maklarbak. Strange name, but an interesting concept. The Time-to-Change magazine lets you know when you are about to run dry. The bolt will lock back when there’s one round left in the mag. Drop the bolt, rock out the mag, and you still have one in the pipe for your magazine change. Does it work?
