The Ubiquitous .22 Long Rifle Cartridge

by Eddy Pretorius

However, it was these two firearms that began my education in shooting and ballistics.

Every now and then a firearm upsets the proverbial apple cart, and forces other manufacturers to sit up and take notice. Enter the Mossberg 930 JM Pro, which we received from City Guns for testing and review. This ‘fire-breathing scattergun’ was designed with the input of sport-shooting legend Jerry Miculek. The philosophy behind the platform was simply a competition-orientated self-loading shotgun that can be shot fast, and which is reliable and cost effective.

by Chris Blatherwick

If you ask any firearm enthusiast to name three handguns to complete their ‘dream’ collection, ‘race gun’ and ‘STI’ pop up time and again. We received the STI TruBor chambered in .38 Super from Frontier Guns & Ammo for review. STI International, a dominant force in the global sport-shooting community, is synonymous with high-quality ‘works of art’ ready to decimate the competition, straight out of the box
