creation and evolution

For no particular reason at all, I got to thinking the other day about some of my early experiences with an AR. It was the fall of 2008 when I first stood over a Texas whitetail that I’d just tagged with Remington’s R-25, chambered in .308 Win. Do you remember that rifle? At the time, it was a weird experience — hunting with an AR, that is. It seemed so out of place, both in the hunting fields and in the hands of a quickly evolving farm boy. Looking back, however, it clearly wasn’t weird: It was just new. And it was different. The entire gun was adorned in Mossy Oak camo, and the only visible black parts included the bolt, a few inches of the barrel and the bottom of the…

the .223 remington (5.56x45mm)

Historical Notes The .223 Remington first appeared in 1957 as an experimental military cartridge for the Armalite AR-15. In 1964, it was officially adopted by the U.S. Army as the 5.56mm ball cartridge M193. It’s used in the selective-fire M16 rifle, which is based on the original AR-15 design. One of the requirements for the cartridge was that the projectile have a retained velocity in excess of the speed of sound (about 1,100 fps at sea level) at 500 yards — something that could not be achieved with the .222 Remington. Gene Stoner of Armalite, among others, designed a case slightly longer than the .222 and had Sierra make a 55-grain boattail bullet. This combination met the design requirements. Originally an alternative military cartridge, the .223 (5.56x45mm) is now the official U.S. and…

letters to the editor

Cylinder. I Repeat: It’s a Cylinder! Jay Hull here checking in from un-gun-friendly Connecticut. I must be spending too much time in “the phone booth,” because I found a whoops in the magazine. On page 23 of the March 2019 issue in the caption for the 1st Issue Model of the Colt Detective Special, the last word should be “cylinder,” not “magazine.” I never carried that model, but my first issued weapon — I mean, “firearm” — was a Colt Commando 4-inch, blued .38 Special. When the department upgraded, the officers were allowed to purchase their issued “weapons.” (Sorry, I did it again.) Back then, our chiefs were gun nuts, and we were able to purchase all the “issued items” that we carried. I bought all four that I carried: the…

walther’s impressive pistol lineup

I just returned from a week-long project with Panteao Productions, with which we were filming a new handgun training DVD, “ Defensive Pistol Fundamentals.” It’ll be available soon for streaming, digital download and direct purchase. That video is the reason for this column, but it’s not the topic. You see, I used Walther handguns during all 30-plus chapters. Those pistols are worth talking about. Walther was founded in Germany by Carl Walther in 1886, and this company is probably best known for its P38 and PP/PPK pistols. The P38 was created to replace the Luger as the service pistol for the Unified Armed Forces of Nazi Germany. It was a fantastic pistol and has become highly sought by collectors. “Bond, James Bond” made the PP/PPK one of the most iconic and recognized…
