First Impression: Wilson P320 Grip Module

First impression. This is a legit upgrade. Back in the bad ole days, if you wanted to modify your polymer gun’s grip? It involved soldering irons and wood burning tools. But…no do overs. Don’t mess up.  Then the Sig P320 came out, and you could practice on inexpensive modules until it was to your liking. Or…now…you could just buy a …

Gun Store Road Trip

Doc and I stopped in at Vandalia Tactical outside of Dayton, Ohio. They had some interesting guns I hadn’t seen in person before. Specifically some Dan Wesson PM-9s, Springfield Ronin Target.  In the category of firearms I had seen before, they had plenty of Glocks and modern striker guns. AR’s, reproduction cowboy guns, and even a Colt Delta Elite in …

eXperior Trigger Control

The trigger on the Wilson eXperior is much “crispier” than on the EDC X9L. It’s been about a decade since I ran such a trigger seriously for CCW. But it’s kinda like riding a bike. This single stack would make a good backup to the X9L main carry gun. 😇 @wilsoncombat #1911 #shootingsteel #wilsoncombat #experior1911 #9mm1911 #singlestacklife #john1911 Sincerely,  Marky …

MSM Banned on Social

Look. I get it. What is happening on social media to provide a gift-in-kind to the Biden campaign is disgusting and dangerous. But I’m not going to pretend that folks like us are oh so shocked.  Welcome to the party, Pal! I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. THIS is why we lean in with our website. Don’t …

All 1911’s Should Be 9mm

I get asked versions of this question every so often: “Are 9mm 1911’s ok?” “Yeah, but it’s only in 9mm.” “Which caliber of 1911 should I get first?” My answer is as follows. For serious work. For CCW. To run and gun. To try to go somewhere and be something with a 1911? Get the 9mm.  In the bad old …

Blaser Tactical Magazine Analysis

Can’t post too much on this. But we occasionally get private messages about this subject. Since we can’t address specifics, all I can show is this photo.  So what it is? One of our outside vendors measuring Blaser Tactical 2 / LRS 2 magazines. Infer from that what you will.      Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

SHS-63: Smith & Wesson 610

On this episode of the Second Hand Showcase, we are looking at a gun I thought was something else. Being in Ohio, I assumed it was a now-retired hunting handgun since we have allowed 45-70 for deer.  No.  This is an old bowling-pin gun. The specs: Make: Smith & Wesson Model: 610 Caliber: 10mm cylinder: Un-fluted Action: Revolver Capacity: 6 …
