What Happens When a Texas 2nd Ammendment Woman Meets New York City?

What Happens When a Texas 2nd Ammendment Woman Meets New York City?

I’ve noticed something about being in the gun industry. Everyone has a story, and more often than not they are more than willing to share it with you.

Watch: First Look Caracal Limited Edition Enhanced Model F

As a purveyor of gun-things-different the Caracal pistol had my attention at SHOT 2016.  What I didn’t know was that the Caracal Model F had actually been in development since 2002, and had already made a brief appearance in the United States while I was over in Afghanistan (2005).  The original model had to make […]

Just Because a Gun is in a Magazine Doesn’t Mean it’s the Right One For You I like to cover a lot of guns that aren’t seen in grocery-store magazines, and for a couple of reasons.  First, common guns bore me.  If I can go to three gun shops and see the same firearm at the […]
