Review: Chiappa Rhino 60DS Bottom Barrel Revolver

I’ve never been much of a revolver fan, with the exception of the finally crafted (and very heavy and hard hitting) Colt Python. I had a Python when I was younger and never really appreciated it for what it was, and now that the prices have gone up and the...

Removing cosmoline from firearms

If you’ve ever been a collector of C&R guns, and really, why wouldn’t you want to be considering the convenience of having a C&R license,  you undoubtedly have had your fingers and clothes covered in a viscous, sticky, disgusting layer of cosmoline, or a similar preservative.

Why getting your C&R License is the best $30 you’ll ever spend

If you’re a collector of guns, you undoubtedly appreciate them for more than just the ability to go “bang”, or defend you or whatever singular reason you originally were interested in firearms. Collectors, which is very much what I am, learn to love the history behind the firearms they run...

Magazines Vs. Clips, the confusion continues

If you’ve spent any amount of time around guys who have been collecting firearms for a while, or range instructors, or military armorers, chances are good that you’ve seen them cringe when someone calls a magazine a clip. I blame it on the proliferation of half-informed media and popular culture....

Click and Bang, the Art of the Deal in Online Firearm Sales

It’s no secret that the internet has changed how we buy things, from books and music to food and commodities. Nowhere is this more true than in firearm sales. I remember buying guns back in the mid 90s, when I was old enough to buy a long gun on my...
