Kel Tec KSG Shotgun Review

Every now and then an invention completely redefines a genre. The iPhone. The microwave oven. Snuggies. The Kel-Tec KSG. While the 14+1 round shotgun doesn’t instantly render current home defense scatterguns obsolete—wait. There’s no getting around it. It does. The KSG has at least three major advantages over any other home defense/tactical shotgun currently on sale to U.S. consumers. For one thing, the Kel-Tec KSG sends a message to all other home defense shotguns: get small or go home . . .

 

Thanks to its bullpup design (the action sits behind the trigger group) the KSG is one seriously short shotgun. The Floridian firearm stretches a scant 26.1 inches from stem-to-stern. For comparison, The Remington 887 Nitro Mag Tactical is a 39″ gun. O.F. Mossberg’s shortest tactical scattergun is the 590 Special Purpose (fans of The Jerk need apply). That piece tapes-in at 38 and 3/8″. The least length-challenged Benelli SuperNova measures 45″ tip to tail.

Buy the Glock 19 in OD Green at Defensefirearms.com

I met up with GLOCK’s national sales team about three months ago at an industry expo and, much to my surprise, they announced that they’re bringing back the OD green pistols that were discontinued several years ago. When I first started my business, nobody wanted the OD guns. I ordered a dozen of them and felt like a fool. The day GLOCK announced they’d be discontinued, my shelf cleared out in a hurry. A recent Gunbroker auction had a dealer bid over $19,000 on a 19-gun collection, which is more than I would pay for them personally, but certain consumers seem to be willing to pay the beautiful and unique snowflake premium…

The IMI/Magnum Research Desert Eagle wasn’t the first large-caliber autopistol to reach production. That honor belongs to the .44 AutoMag, which was then succeeded by the Wildey Auto, as famously wielded by Charles Bronson in Death Wish III. The Desert Eagle (DE) was, however, the first large-caliber auto pistol to catch the public imagination. Even casual firearms enthusiasts can immediately identify it, as can players of first-person shooters like CounterStrike (where “deagling” refers to making one-shot “kills” to the head). The shooters who haven’t fired one yearn to do so, while those who have are rarely without a strongly-held opinion for or against the big autopistol. Perhaps most interestingly, the Desert Eagle serves as a powerful, elegant argument against that old argument that “guns have no purpose but to kill.”  Read More…Image

Gun Review: CAI Canik55 TP-9

Gun Review: CAI Canik55 TP-9.

When Mr. Bond grew tired of his German mouse gun, he “upgraded” to the Walther P99. I don’t know how many of you out there upgraded along with him, but if you’re like me you didn’t. My “excuse” for shunning the gun: I’m not a huge fan of the P99′s H&K style magazine release. You know, the kind located on the trigger guard? Its proximity to the trigger is as welcome as hot-sauce in saline solution. Ergonomically? Awk-ward. This made the gun a attractive to me as . . .

Glock is the single most popular manufacturer of handguns in the United States. Thanks to a marketing department that could sell bayonets to millionaires and billionaires, Glock’s brick-like semi-automatic pistols are universally recognized, glamorized and immortalized. Just ask 2Pac. Oh wait. I’ve avoided Glocks due to their association (in my mind) with Tupperware. After resisting Glock’s plastic fantastic siren song for more than a decade I finally decided to see if Glocks are all that and a bag of chips. So I asked, and I received and I shot the ever-loving crap out of Glock’s standard duty model: the venerable Glock 17…Read More…

I’ve never been a big fan of polymer frame guns. They’re light, some even toy-like. For me, they don’t have the solid grip that I get from metal frames, and they just don’t look as bad-ass as good old fashioned solid steel firepower in the hand. But looks don’t count for everything – especially when considering a pistol that’s meant to be concealed. But my bias for heavy handguns aside, there is definitely something to be said for the plastic fantastics. . .Read More
