Today, many individuals feel that the venerable 6 shooter or the wheel gun is all but obsolete. The popularity of the revolver within law enforcement agencies was staggering and then the advent of the first wonder nines. The first high capacity semi-automatic pistols adopted by many police agencies in the 1980’s and were primarily produced in 9mm Luger (parabellum) And as law enforcement changes so do the preferences of the armed community; with high capacity semi-autos sweeping the market. Yet today revolvers are still capable and a lot of fun when you combine 44 magnum with Buffalo Bore Ammunition.

Colt’s Wiley Clapp 21st Century LW Commander Talo Exclusive

Recently I had the opportunity to spend a dayattherange with possibly one of the best carry 1911′s on the market. Colt’s Wiley Clapp Light Weight Commander Talo Exclusive. Upon original examination I realized three things. One it is an aesthetically pleasing pistol, two Colt’s original 1950′s design was spot on and three, I now understood why this pistol carries the moniker “Everything you need, with nothing you don’t.”

Ruger Six Series Review: An Obsession

I figured that I might help you understand my obsession.

In this author’s humble opinion it is the best revolver ever offered by Ruger. As compared to a Smith and Wesson I’d say there is a tiny bit of travel in single action with nearly zero pressure behind it and while the single action may not be as crisp as a S&W; I like how smooth the double action trigger is compared to the Smith. I even think the Security, Speed, and Service six revolvers’ DA triggers are better than other Ruger models, such as the GP100 and SP101. Also, Ruger revolvers tend to be low maintenance and are very easy for a novice to completely disassembly.
