It is interesting to note the differences in glove sizes and contrast this to the “one-size-fits-all” handgun grip frame. The mechanics of a firearm in a useful caliber and mechanism functionality are limiting factors, but some handguns are better fits for most hands than others. Despite the differences in handgun grip size and angles, I

By the standards of 1905, the 6.35x16mmSR (AKA .25 ACP) was a tiny miracle. Using a semi-rimmed case, this cartridge could fit both revolvers and semi-auto handguns. History of the .25 ACP Loaded from the start with smokeless powder, it duplicated the ballistic performance of .22 LR rimfire and 5.75mm Velo-Dog loads while improving on

Many world-famous chefs and restaurateurs will attest that simple food made with quality ingredients often tastes better than elaborate, overwrought dishes that are meant to impress. For survivalists and preppers, there’s no need to impress anyone. “Simple” food is less a choice and more a survival necessity. No matter how well you think you’ve prepared

A question that comes up around gun shops is, “Who still uses the .38 Super,” if anyone? I am one of the users of this fine cartridge and while I appreciate the grand old .38 Super, or Super .38 as it is variously called, it is probably not a caliber I recommend for most shooters.

The 1911 handgun is a respected firearm and among the greatest fighting weapons ever designed and manufactured. It is enjoying a practically unprecedented run at the top of the heap of some 109 years. While the original 1911 isn’t quite the handgun we deploy today, anyone that can use the oldest 1911 will be able

Bullpups—firearms with the action behind the trigger rather than in front—have been around since the early 20th century. In the era of bolt-actions with extra-long barrels, they were an effort to bring the overall length down without sacrificing ballistic performance. None were adopted for serious use, in part because the reduction in overall length also

It is common in the firearms industry for shooters to wait months or more to obtain a new introduction. Some of the firearms seem made of unobtanium or another rare element. The newest 9mm from Smith and Wesson is an exception. The M&P9 Shield EZ is being shipped and readily available. This handgun isn’t similar

There are certain rules to be followed in firearms training. These rules will lead to a gradual increase in the shooter’s skill. It isn’t difficult for a person of average ability to become a decent shot. The top tier of shooting requires more work, time, effort and expense. Among the routes that many shooters take,

I am a fan and advocate of the .44 Remington Magnum. Not so much a fan as in “going out shooting it,” but a fan in toting one around with me—and I’ve been toting one for better than 40 years. Not everywhere. But “out there” when a confrontation with something dangerous is a possibility. “Out

When it comes to handgun selection, we all have our ideas. I do not subscribe to a certain type of shooter that seems to have had his or her options weighed by the cinema. A high-capacity 9mm and two spare magazines is reasonable for service use, but hardly practical for most who carry concealed. It

It’s been a fantastic year for The Shooter’s Log. We’ve churned out lots of content and insights related to firearms, ammunition, parts, accessories, safety, training and more. As 2019 wraps up and 2020 descends upon us, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of our most popular posts. This isn’t

Recently, the topic of cheap guns came up and led to some spirited discussion. I took a hard look at the firearms I use often and also a few new introductions, looking for the best value. The goal was to find the best performance for the least outlay. The firearms were to be knockabout types,

Savage Arms has been using rotary magazines since 1895. Almost 125 years of institutional knowledge were applied to the recent A22 rimfire rifle design. At first glance, this rifle resembles its Ruger competitor, but it performed significantly better. Priced similarly to the baseline 10/22, the Savage design features a robust magazine with more consistent alignment

Some ideas, features and reports are more difficult than others. Coming up with five great rifles cartridges may seem easy, but there are many good choices, and there is a great deal of overlap in performance. I am certain to offend fans of the .257 Roberts and perhaps someone will point out that the Canadian

The subject of personal defense shooting and marksmanship (aka “getting hits”) draws many opinions and comments. Whether or not the individual is qualified, they are willing to share their wisdom. The problem is, there are a lot of instructors that have been to many schools, but have no practical experience. They have never met a

We don’t really talk much about stock AR-15 triggers, and that’s because there’s not much to say. They’re bad. No nicer thing can be said. To improve the trigger, get another trigger. That’s just that. Over the years, the number of replacement aftermarket AR-15 triggers has radically increased, and it’s done so to the point

I suppose if there is anything I am not, it is a gun snob. I own a number of humble-but-useful firearms. I also own top-quality firearms that represent a great deal of hard work and effort to obtain. I am not a collector. I have the greatest respect for those that keep history alive and

It’s a good bet that anyone reading this already knows the history of the Browning Auto–5 and its variants. That being said, here are some highlights from its rich and intriguing history:  Designed in 1898 by John M. Browning, it was the first semi-auto shotgun ever.  Winchester missed an opportunity to manufacture it by refusing Browning’s terms.  Remington’s president died
