Some people love them, some people hate them.  It goes by many names: snub-nosed wheelgun, snubbie, detectives special, and on.  The short barreled, compact revolver has been around since about the beginning of the revolver.  It is a great design.  It’s compact, easy to conceal, and simple to operate, pull the trigger and repeat.  The snub-nosed revolver for how simple it is, is very diverse in its old age.  The snubbie comes in Double/Single action, Double Action Only, .357 magnum, .38 special,.22lr and on.

If you ask three different people what the ideal combat pistol caliber is, you will likely get three different answers. If you ask me, it’s the .45 ACP. I love the .45 for many reasons as a combat caliber, but mostly because it makes a big hole in a bad guy. Smith & Wesson has known this for a long time, and knowing this, they produced a version of their M&P pistol in this awesome caliber.

The M&P line of pistols have been in production since 2005, as a direct improvement over their Sigma line of handguns. When the M&P series was released, it was called the Smith & Wesson version of the Glock. Read more…

 

 

 

GuRuger_LC9s_F1-300x294ns & Ammo: Ruger LC9s- First Look

Ruger has introduced a new companion to their popular LC9 with the addition of the striker-fired LC9s.

The Ruger LC9s was designed for shooters who prefer the feel and performance of a striker-fired pistol to hammer-fired double actions. The LC9s maintains similar dimensions and is compatible with all accessories, holsters and extended 9-round magazines made for the LC9.

Ruger’s new LC9s also features a familiar blued, hardened alloy steel slide, 3.12-inch barrel and dovetailed 3-dot sights. Its black, one-piece nylon checkered grip frame also maintains traditional LC9 appearance and ergonomics. Read more…
