Okay there are some nearly lost arts to handling a revolver. This is due to the autoloader’s dominance in the last few decades, as many agencies no longer teach the handling of wheelguns. So we will go over the ways to efficiently handle that gun with the cylinder in the middle!

Yup, time to look at the most intimidating short range firearm out there, the shotgun.
Praised for balance, cussed for recoil, it is all these things and more. Let’s look at the 4 sizes we have first: the 20, 16, 12 and 10 Gauges. For those of you new to shotguns, the smaller the gauge number, the bigger the barrel. The 10 gauge was a very rare bird back in our era except in custom guns and it is a very heavy recoiling round in today’s loadings, so it’s really not one to consider as the other 3 are much, much better suited for us.

While the handguns are a lot of fun to shoot, the rifle and shotgun are what folks reached for when they knew a gunfight was coming up.So when your Caper involves stopping that truck full of hooch or “liberating” some gas money from the local bank, grab your “big gun”!

Hello again. Pull up a chair, get comfy and we are going to look at one of history’s great guns and discuss why it might be the gun for you. It is officially known as the Government Model of 1911 .45 Automatic Pistol. It was the United States’ official sidearm from 1911 until placed in reserve in 1990, and has been reissued to some of our troops since then! It has been praised, cussed, abused and gussied up in every way imaginable and keeps earning it’s keep today.
