Happy eve of New Year's Eve, everyone! 2022 was a mixed bag for gun owners, with both a big win at the Federal level and a continual erosion of rights at certain state levels, thumbing their noses at the historic Bruen decision. We brought it all to you, plus a whole lot more. When looking back at the top news stories of the year and stripping out reviews – because we did that already – and articles published strictly for the bots – think Best Beginner AR-10s or Top Left-Handed Rifles – we get the top 10 news stories of 2022.

It's not surprising to see that it's all new guns. Like a mosquito to the light, gun owners are attracted to the new and shiny, even if they don't like it. You'll see a lot of the content came from SHOT Show last year, which we'll be attending again in a couple of weeks, and that isn't much of a surprise either. Check out the new guns that interested you the most for the past year below!
