Downrange: May 2013
It would be funny, if it werent so pathetic. The overlords who seek to disarm us just dont know anything about guns, which makes them both arrogant and dangerous. Three recent eyebrow-raising examples.
Space Age versus Old Age: We Compare Two Lever Actions
The contrast between old and new is no more apparent than with the newly released Mossberg Model 464 ZMB 30-30 Win. and the veteran Winchester Model 1895 chambered in 30-40 Krag.
Testing 223 Remington Rounds For Personal-Defense Use
We shot 21 loads from eight manufacturers in bullet weights as low as 35 grains to as much as 77 grains. What we found surprised us, and the results may surprise you, too.
Midsize Nine Carryables: H&K Competes Against Sig Sauer
A step up from pocket 9mms, the slightly larger Sig Sauer P239 SAS and H&Ks USP Compact were easy to shoot and offered big-gun handling and controls, some of which we didnt like.
CIA Against Sig Sauer: AK-47 Takes On AK-47 'Compatible'
A Romanian WASR-10 is irrefutably an AK in roughness, looks, and function. Sigs 556R is an AK in chambering and not much else. What you buy might depend on how you think the SWHTF.
