Review: Traditions Liberty Single Action Revolver

I have been very happy with Pietta clones of the SAA, and when I saw the looks and price of the Traditions Liberty, it was love at first sight. The revolver features a beautiful blue finish. The engraving is nicely done with an appearance similar to acid etching, but the laser engraving is not as deep as old type German style engraving—and it costs a fraction of the original.

Snub Nose Magnum Revolvers — Unequivocal

With the great and growing abundance of concealed carry permits as Americans exercise their rights and commons sense, and a present political climate that nurtures such progress, armed citizens are flexing their political muscles and choosing to be responsible for their own safety.

The Most Versatile Handgun Caliber — The .357 Magnum

In the firearms world I see much hype and overstatement. As such the real article with genuine performance is often under appreciated. One example is comparing the latest 9mm +P or .357 SIG load to the .357 Magnum. Those may seem like fighting words to some, but read the full story before passing judgement.

SHOT 2013 Preview: Winchester Model 73 .357 Magnum

Do you love the historical lever action rifles? Then you’re going to dig this one. How about a Winchester Model 1873 in .357 Magnum. I know that the .45 Colt or .32-20 would be historical but .357 and .38 Special are more cost effective so my History degree will forgive me.
