The NRA Has Its Say!

Michael Bane recently had a chance to interview Doug Hamlin, the new CEO and Vice President of the NRA, asking questions that had been submitted by viewers/listeners. We have decided to run the video of the 40 minute interview unedited.

Stoeger Continues the STR’s Expansion

From its initial single offering, the STR-9 9mm pistol, Stoeger has grown the STR line into an impressive and very successful set of pistols. At SHOT and NRA we teased a new STR-9 modified for potential NATO handgun trials, and now it’s time to meet the STR-9 Combat X. Also this week, an exclusive and moving look at why the Second Amendment matters so much.

Building a “Working Person’s” Custom 1911!

This week Michael shows how to take a good basic 1911, a 9mm Tisas Stingray, and turn it into something special…a custom 1911 you can actually afford! Also, the Rock Island 9mm revolver — a gem, thanks to Dave Fink!

Another Perfect Classic…in .44 Russian!

This week we continue looking at some perfect custom guns, in this case a Cimarron 1873 Deluxe Short Rifle converted to the stubby .44 Russian round for Cowboy Action Shooting. Also, an excellent pistol rest that's easy on the wallet, courtesy MTM Case-Gard.

Getting Ready for GUNSITE…

…and a touch of perfection! This week Michael starts shooting the pair of Rossis he’ll be using at the GUNSITE lever action/handgun class soon. Plus, Ed Brown’s magnificent Kobra Carry 1911.

NRA Show Surprises!

In addition to all the political maneuvering, there were several really interesting new guns at the NRA Show in Dallas. Let’s take a quick look!

Dave Spaulding: Killing Sacred Cows!

Over a storied career in law enforcement, Dave Spaulding emerged as one of the top firearms trainers in America. His Handgun Combatives' classes, driven both by his skill as a presenter and his dry humor, were filled almost as soon as they were announced. Dave has zero respect for sacred cows, and today he slays a herd!

RIA’s Just About Perfect 9mm Revolver

Michael has been revisiting Rock Island Armory's Czech-built AL9.0 9mm revolver, and he can’t speak highly enough of the 6-shooter. Also, new products from Streamlight and the first look at C&H Precision’s affordable optics.

Break Out the Wrist-Busters!

The hint of a revolver hunting trip to Africa next year has Michael breaking out his “wrist-buster” big guns from Taurus, S&W and Magnum Research. Which would be the choice for the Dark Continent? Also, Kahr Arms double-stack 9mm will be formally launched very, very soon...

Little Guns; Big Scopes

This week, Michael introduces his latest Bond Arms derringer, the Stinger “Fireball,” then goes on to suggest how such a gun might be used. Also, Steiner, a legend in military optics, has landed a brilliant entry into the hunting/general purpose side of the market.
