Beretta S686 Essential Shotgun

Beretta’s over/under shotguns are among the best available. However, their price tags reflect this fact, with some of the higher grades costing more than many new cars. Beretta’s new S686 Essential model in 12 gauge is designed, in the words of the Beretta catalog, to offer “all of the operating systems, safety features, durability and performance for which Beretta over-and-under are known,” at a suggested retail price of $1,215. Some may say that’s still a bit pricey for a shotgun, but it’s the most budget-priced O/U in Beretta’s line.

Beretta M9

I can’t think of a better way to test the durability and serviceability of a product than to give it to a bunch of U.S. soldiers to play with. If you want to take a long chance, just give your product to the entire U.S. armed forces and see what they come up with. If it jams, they’ll jam it. If it can be broken, they’ll break it. If it can be made to malfunction, they’ll malfunction it.

The Kahr CW40 Review

The Kahr CW40 is an outstanding choice for concealed carry with its compact size & lightweight. It fits perfectly well in the palm of an average sized hand. However, it might be uncomfortable if anyone has large hands, but this should be no reason for complaint because it is built to be a concealed carry handgun.

CZ 75 Review

The Czechoslovakian army pistol model 52, CZ-52 abbreviated, is a fascinating weapon-technology development. In principle, the domestic weapon industry in Czechoslovakia had many experiences in the production of high-quality contractor handguns. Therefore, despite the Soviet-Russian supremacy, the self-sufficiency could remain so well protected in the weapon industry.
