Does the Charles Daly 1911 Commander represent quality on a budget or is the lower price indicative of its worth? I set to find out using a duo-tone model.
Peachy, Georgia-made defensive round and a welcome addition to the ammunition market.
TruGlo has just launched a new series of ruggedized hybrid tritium and fiber optic sights for popular models of handguns, their new TFX sights.
Comparing a Glock to a 1911 is like comparing apples to oranges. It’s only appropriate to argue which one tastes better.
Shooting Kimber’s high end, two-tone Custom Shop CDP model with rosewood Crimson Trace laser grips and tritium night sights, left me seriously impressed with the little gun’s accuracy and pointability.
There’s a good reason why Kimber is one of the top manufacturers of the 1911, from .22 to 9mm to .45. Give one a try if you get a chance.
I prefer my 1911s to be in John Browning’s chosen .45 ACP, but having one set up to properly handle a .22 LR cartridge makes all kinds of sense for a number of reasons, such as getting practice with the platform at a small fraction of the ammo costs of shooting .45 ACP. And for that, the Kimber Rimfire Target model is an excellent choice.
It took Arne Boberg the better part of a decade to perfect the concealed carry subcompact XP-9 pistol and the lucky few who have shot one agree it was well worth the wait.
Kimber’s adding and expanding with new lines of everyday carry, deep concealment and duty pistols.
This was my first SHOT Show. I’m still a bit stunned. As a review writer, I know a lot about the industry. But now I know that I have a lot to learn. I could have spent all five days just studying ARs, or 1911s. There is too much for one person to see, so I thought I’d throw up a few of my favorites.
