The Last to GoThanks for the great piece on Dan Wesson! I have been shooting them for 30 years and love the accuracy and interchangeable barrel feature. I started with a Model 14 .357 snubby, if you can call that huge frame that, but quickly sold it and switched to a Model 15, with which I competed in IHMSA events. I now own a .22, .32 Mag., .357, .375, .41, and .445. If the day comes I have to get rid of my guns, the Dan Wessons will be the last ones to go.RICK CHEATUMPOCATELLO, ID Works for HimInteresting to read “.32 Skidoo” by Mr. Sweeney. I have a Kel-Tec P-32 that I bought quite a few years ago and am very pleased with it . While not my…

TWO YEARS AGO FEDERAL INTRODUCED its Syntech ammunition. I wrote a review of it in our June/July 2016 issue, and I was impressed by what it had to offer: a polymer-coated bullet that delivers less fouling, less friction (and therefore less barrel-killing heat) and less splash-back when firing at steel targets. And with its Total Synthetic Jacket and lead-free Catalyst primer, the ammunition meets lead-free restrictions in force at some ranges.I was impressed, but after the much-ballyhooed introduction, nothing happened. To be honest, I thought the trail had gone cold, that shooters hadn’t responded to this innovative new ammo. Not so. The lack of attention was due to market factors: Federal was so busy churning out standard ammo to meet demand that the Syntech project was basically shunted aside…

purse carry 101

A carry purse should have a dedicated compartment that holds only the gun and also keeps the firearm indexed so you’re able to get your hand on the gun in a proper firing grip more or less instantly. UNEDUCATED PURSE CARRY IS, AT BEST, akin to driving around with a spare tire in the trunk but not knowing how to fix a flat. At worst, it’s like driving on a busy highway while texting. So for those who are considering this carry style, here’s an introduction.First, get a proper purse—one that has a dedicated compartment and sleeve or holster for the gun. A handgun should never be carried loose in a purse along with other objects, and these sleeves or holsters will prevent objects from entering the trigger guard,…

winchester 244

Rupp’s test included IMR Target and IMR Red, both relatively new powders from that company, against the new Winchester 244—with tried-and-true Alliant Bullseye for comparison. Guns were Ruger GP100 (three-inch barrel) and Smith & Wesson Model 629 (five-inch barrel). WINCHESTER WINCLEAN 244 IS A RELAtively new powder, one produced under license by Hodgdon. Out of the blue, the company sent me a can to try, and, hey, I never look a gift horse in the mouth.While this powder is supposed to be ideal for 9mm, .45 ACP and .38 Special, I was in the process of developing a .44 Special load using Oregon Trail’s Lasercast 240-grain-ers for my Ruger GP100, with the Smith & Wesson 629 in there so I could compare speed from a three-inch barrel versus a…

REMINGTON R1 1911 ULTRALIGHT EXECUTIVE The R1 series has been a hit for Remington, and now the company is offering a version that should be a top choice for anyone looking to carry a 1911. Weighing in at a svelte 28 ounces, thanks to an aluminum full-size frame, the gun sports a 3.5-inch stainless bull barrel and bobtail for an easily concealable pistol. Sights are tritium front and rear, and G10 grips pair with a checkered frontstrap for excellent control. {$1,250, REMINGTON.COM } SIG 365 ELITE PERFORMANCE In this issue you’ll find a review of the excellent new P365, and SIG has come out with ammo to pair with it. Like the gun itself, these two new loads are optimized for everyday carry, with low-flash, clean-burning powder. The…
