editor’s letter

As this issue of RECOIL’s CONCEALMENT hits newsstands, Americans will be celebrating and condemning our national election winners. Whether Washington, DC remains red, turns blue, or ends up a shade of purple, we must remember that the Republican party controlled both Congress and the White House for two years and somehow failed to pass any significant firearm legislation.There were brief moments of excitement when the house passed legislation to take the BATFE out of the silencer buying picture and a nanosecond when national concealed carry reciprocity peeked its head out of the senate, but every success was met with national headlines about one tragedy or another. Those shootings prevented our elected representatives from doing anything for us nationally.As Republicans waited for a pro-gun legislation opening, the Democrats seized upon the…

Rossi, the other, other Brazilian firearms manufacturer. Though the company has been around for 129 years now, the history important to this piece started in the 1970s.It was right about this time was when Taurus International acquired both the rights and the tooling for Rossi revolvers; hence the markings on the frame of this one.It’s no coincidence that the Taurus Model 85 and the Rossi R351 are nearly identical — with the exception that the Rossi has a hammer-mounted firing pin like the classic Smith & Wesson M68. After all, Taurus is the one that actually manufactured this pistol in the first place.We picked up this (insert sarcastic tone here) beauty from The Bullet Ranch in Pataskala, Ohio. The main issue we heard from their gunsmith, Jake Stepanovich, consists of…

1 TENICORVELOtenicor.comFITS: Glock, SIG P320 & P365, Polymer80, S&W M&P 9/40 & Shield 9/40MSRP: $77-$95NOTES: It’s hard to fathom all the features Tenicor crammed into the appendix-carry specific Velo holster. At first sight, it looks hardly any different than the plethora of thermo-molded pistol scabbards already on the market. But peel back the first layer and you’ll see the shape and profile of the worn holster is smaller and thinner than its competitors. It’s also cut for a red-dot sight. Peel another layer, and you’ll find thoughtful fit and retention features such as the low-profile metal belt clips, muzzle wedge, and built-in Modwing-style belt claw. The latter two work together to tuck the pistol butt into your gut.Tenicor offers snap loops, but we like the T1 belt clips. We’ve yet…
