The quality of the parts is the same, as is the fitting. But the dehorning makes for a much better-feeling pistol in the hand. You're also paying for a properly fitted beavertail and a trigger job.

Yup. They learned that a 9mm round out of a pistol would penetrate a steel helmet at 50 yards. A .45 round would not.

In one of his YouTube videos 22plinkster showed that even a lowly .22LR bullet will punch right through a dozen sheets of drywall. That was using CCI Stingers, so a solid bullet would likely go...

That's right. Guys complaining that they can't find 9mm ammo for $.17 cents a round anymore need to wake up and face reality.

Latest woods trip today... Armscor high-velocity ammo runs 100% but Federal Champion is too weak and causes a lot of FTE's. Remington and Winchester ammo won't fit the chamber either. It's looking...

Good job on that purchase. Taurus may make a lot of stinkers but it sounds like the TX-22 isn't one of them. I also find it amusing that the new Glock 44 is apparently very ammo-sensitive yet these...

A 1911 frame is fairly thin in most areas and flexes quite a bit during recoil. With super-hot loads eventually it'll crack at the dust cover junction and possibly the slide stop cutout as well. With...

This morning I stopped by one of the few gun shops that managed to stay open, and they've raised prices on all their ammo by around 50%. Of course, that also means they actually still had ammo to...

In my experience Airsoft guns aren't anywhere near as accurate as even a smooth-bore steel BB gun. Those light plastic pellets are easily pushed around by the slightest breeze. When shooting air guns...

Hey, you're talking to guys who need to keep 10,000 rounds of ammunition on hand despite the fact there's no way they could possibly carry it all in a bug-out situation.

I'm afraid there are still some old Russian and German vets left alive who would be offended by that remark. The fighting on the Eastern Front was absolutely brutal, and yet when we gave the Russians...

I used to have a P220 .45 and a P226 9mm, both W. German marked guns. I sold them a long time ago. Currently my only SIGs are two P365s. While not as classy as the P22x-series pistols I once owned...

1. Obvious signs of wear or damage.

It depends on the gun and caliber. A +P .38 Special round is definitely more stout than a simple range or target load, but it is far more effective. In a 4" steel-framed revolver it should still be...

Agreed. While the M17 is a decent handgun there is really very little it can do that a railed M9A1 can't. I remember reading an article on a British website about how the British Army's new Glock 17s...
