Range Report: Ruger SR1911 10mm

Ruger’s latest SR1911 is a bold step. The 10mm auto cartridge is a powerful number that gives handgunners a viable cartridge for long-range use and hunting of medium-sized game. It is suitable for defense against animals and a viable service and personal defense cartridge. The SR1911 differs considerably from previous pistols and may arguably be one of the best 10mm 1911 handguns ever built.

Range Report: Glock 17 Vickers Tactical

Larry Vickers is a respected trainer, soldier, and gunsmith. His name on a handgun means a great deal to many of us. The Glock 17 was the original Glock pistol, and the one on which Glock’s reputation was built. It is fair to say that there is no more proven reliable handgun on the planet. How do you make the best even better? By combining the two of course. Read the full review of the Glock 17 Vickers Tactical to discover the details for yourself.

Range Report: Canik TP9SF Elite-S 9mm

A few years ago, the CANIK TP9 pistol was introduced in America. A product of the Turkish arms industry, the pistol was a credible but not exact clone of a Walther design. The pistol has proven reliable and accurate enough. The price point is attractive and the pistol is well established. The TP9SF Elite-S is an improvement over the original in many ways and is designed as the top of the line pistol among the CANIK polymer frame pistols.

Range Report: CZ’s Polymer Pistol — The CZ P10-C

I have considerable experience with CZ pistols, from the original CZ 75 to the CZ P-01 and other variants. But nothing prepared me for the experience of handling and firing the newest CZ pistol, the CZ P10-C. It isn’t radical in design and technology, but it is different from anything CZ has done before.

Range Report: CZ 455 American Rifle

The CZ 455 American is easily one of my favorite rifles of all time. However, when I opened the box, my first thought was, “I am so lucky.” The stock on the new CZ 455 rifle showed excellent fit and figure. CZ rifles are never bad, but this was an exceptional piece. Looks are important, but performance is the essence of a Range Report—the CZ 455 American did not disappoint.

Range Report: Ruger SR1911R

The SR1911R is a rail gun affording shooters the option of mounting a combat light. For home defense and other qualified users, the light is a great option. In this range report, Bob Campbell puts the Ruger SR1911R through its paces with a bonus review of the TruGlo’s Tru-Point light/laser combo.

Video: Range Report — Henry Golden Boy Silver

I am new to lever action rimfire rifles, having grown up with auto-loading 22 rifles like the Mossberg 702 and the Ruger 10/22. However, I was eager to review my Henry Golden Boy Silver the moment I picked it up at my local dealer, both as a firearm and from a perspective of someone completely new to the platform.

Range Report: Ruger’s Rugged GP100 Goes Big Bore

State of the art is a good description. Among the most successful designs is the Ruger GP100 revolver. The Ruger GP100 .357 Magnum is easily the most accurate revolver I have fired recently. The only revolver that may exhibit superior accuracy is the Colt Python. However, the Colt, sadly, is no longer in production and terribly expensive. Thankfully, the GP100 is chock full of features with range performance worthy of a Ruger.

Range Report: Smith and Wesson Victory .22 Pistol

Smith and Wesson’s Victory .22 has garnered a lot of interest since its introduction a few months ago. The Victory .22 is intended to compete with similar .22 calibers handguns such as the Browning Buckmark and Ruger Standard Model. As such the Victory will have to have good features, good reliability, and acceptable accuracy. The price point is also important. Smith and Wesson’s previous .22 caliber self loaders were not in the class with this pistol and the hopes Smith and Wesson has pinned on this pistol are not without justification.
