“The CZ P-09 is an overall excellent handgun. It’s a modern option for those who desire a polymer frame, hammer-fired, DA/SA gun. It’s taken the CZ-75 platform and brought it into the modern era of defensive handguns. The P-09 is a great handgun, and it performs where it needs to.” – Travis Pike
“The .22 LR Glock G44 does what it is supposed to do. Shots on target, reliable with specific ammo, and it comes in at a great value. Plus it’s nearly identical to the Glock 19 which makes it the perfect training and plinking gun. Rounding out why this might be worthy of your time…accessories. Because it’s a Glock means that it has a ton of accessories and aftermarket parts ready to throw on.” – Johnny B.
“The CZ P-01 is a small pistol that doesn’t know it. Most smaller guns feel like small guns, but CZ found the magic though and built the P-01 so that it’s smaller but doesn’t feel like it. Between an excellent cold hammer-forged barrel and outstanding design, it is the most accurate compact I have in my safe. While there is an argument to be made that it isn’t as important as some might claim it is, the P-01 has a very low bore axis. Combined with the metal frame and it simply eats recoil. Everything about the P-01 adds up to being a great pistol.” – David Lane
The Browning BAR Mark III is an elegant and effective hunting rifle. The semi-automatic gas-operated design allows for a softer recoil impulse, even when using magnum cartridges. As with most Browning products, beautiful wood and high-luster bluing really make this rifle pop.
