For those that missed the posts on Facebook, the Walther PPS is truly an experiment for me. I bought this gun blindly off of online reviews and having never handled one in person. Now, you may be wondering to yourself why I would do that. Well, many people can’t find gun A or gun B locally to fondle before buying and go blindly off of what reviewers say. So, to better my reviews for you, I decided to do just that, and then compare my findings to what I found in the reviews I watched.
The Glock 19x is one that I thrashed when it came out on the market. I saw no value in the design…why would someone want a compact slide on a full-sized frame? Well, slowly but surely, my curiosity got the best of me. Between talking to a friend who is former LE, seeing all of the torture test articles, and more… I wanted to try Glock again.
I held a Facebook poll to see which review everyone wanted first for knives…the Tenacious took the lead, so here we are! The Tenacious is a knife that I had picked up slightly before the Ontario Rat 1…I liked it too much… and then bought the Rat 1 to beat up hardcore. Depending on how much value you put into pocket knives, the Tenacious is going to be seen as a budget option by most since it comes in right under $40 typically.
So, earlier this month (May) Canik debuted the ONE series of the TP9. The ONE series is supposed to be the budget version of the TP9 line of pistols. If you’ve followed the TP9 since it hit the market, these prices may get your a little red under the ears. Now, before I go into the price, I’ll go over what they’re doing to bring the price down.
The Nemo Arms Monark has been a gun I’ve been excited to mess with for quite some time. Why? It was one of the only metal framed striker fired guns on the market when I found out about it. It’s only competition? The late Hudson H9 (AKA the Hype 9). For those that have never heard of Nemo Arms before, they specialized in ARs and precision bolt guns, and within the last couple of years they decided to throw their hat into the duty-sized handgun game.
The Archon Type B is what used to be Arsenal Italy’s new entry to the handgun world. Legalese here, legalese there, and Arsenal had to change their name to Archon. The Type B is the compact descendant of the famous Arsenal Strike One. From a mechanical standpoint the Archon Type B is like no other handgun on the market as it uses a different type of locking system that’s real interesting.
The Naroh Arms N1 was announced and really took everyone by surprise. Here’s a relatively unheard of company trying to enter the busiest segment of the firearms market. When Mossberg attempted to do the same thing with the MC1, it was a 15-minute burst of publicity, and then everyone quickly forgot about it. With the Naroh N1… I think the opposite is going to happen.
A few weeks ago I made the article titled “Is It Reasonable? The National Firearms Act”. At the end of that article I made the comment that I might make a follow-up article going over some changes that I’d make to the NFA if we couldn’t get it abolished.
Firearm regulations haven’t worked in the past and they haven’t worked today. The National Firearms Act of 1934 was designed to be the “end all, be all” to “gun violence”. It heavily restricted several kinds of firearms under the illusion that criminals would follow further laws; surprise! They didn’t.
The Streamlight TLR-7 hit the market in 2018 and gained traction like wildfire. I was one of the people that was highly anticipating it due to its size to output ratio. When I got it in for review I already began seeing issues with the light, not in performance, but in function. Below I’ll be going over the specifications of the light and a summarized review of what’s in the YouTube video.
