    There's that, and a couple of other things (I experienced this with my MKV Lawman, which was essentially the fix-sighted version of the Trooper);

    I'm very curious as to why they choose the SFP/VP over the Glock. Both are great guns; I have and heavily use both, but from an organizational maintenance standpoint, Glock pretty much trumps the...

    My instructor, who's seen several SIG rifles tells me that they have a tendency to have tight chambers, necessitating either factory ammunition or very well crafted and dimensioned reloads. That's...

    I've trusted them in my Beretta for over 12 years. I don't make a secret here that I'm one of Check-Mate's sponsored shooters, but my 92 dry-film magazines have provided near flawless performance...

    I'll ask a heretical question: Are you sure a reduction is necessary? I'll freely admit my Gen 3 G21 "bg butt" (non-SF G21) is probably the most difficult Glock for me to shoot accurately at speed...

    The best 1911 $18 you'll spend (on grips, anyhow) are either of the Magpul 1911 grips. They're a superb value.
