first shot

In nature, honey badgers are anything but sweet and cuddly. But Black Hills’ cutting-edge line of HoneyBadger ammo is about as sweet and badass as can be. Hollow points? Who needs those? HoneyBadger ammo represents a complete rethinking of how premium defensive rounds ought to look, fly and penetrate. That’s why we had author Will Dabbs cover its development, do some of his own testing and show what the future might hold for defensive ammo. Speaking of new ammo, we also have a “first look” in this issue of the 6.5 Weatherby RPM as well as that company’s brand-new Mark V Backcountry rifles and 18i shotguns. These exciting introductions are all part of Weatherby’s recent move out to Wyoming from increasingly restrictive California. Another road trip this issue leads to the Guntec…

a better beretta

Incorporating the favorite elements of different Beretta pistols into one dream gun is a luxury most of us will never have. Not so for Bill Wilson of Wilson Combat, who has enjoyed a long and productive list of collaborative efforts with Beretta. Wilson Combat’s new offering, the 92G Brigadier Tactical with a Vertec grip frame, is an example of Wilson’s unique relationship with the world-renowned gun-maker. “Being a serious Beretta collector, I have always considered the 92G-SD the best model ever produced, but it’s almost too expensive and rare to shoot. I feel fortunate to have been able to work with the fine people at Beretta USA to produce a pistol that, in my opinion, is an improved 92G-SD. Having Beretta USA build my dream 92 series pistol is awesome, and…

spyderco’s web

Spyderco is an iconic knife manufacturer that stands out for many reasons. It’s still a family-run business after 40 years, and the original founders keep a hand in corporate affairs. Spyderco was also the first company to place a hole in the blade of its folding knives for quick one-handed opening, the first to use fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) in a production knife and the first to install a pocket clip on a production folding knife, among many other innovations. A proud American company founded in 1976, Spyderco is nestled in the foothills west of Denver, not far from the Coors brewery in Golden, Colorado. What began as an itinerant knife sharpener sales business operating out of an old bread truck converted into a mobile home and warehouse has blossomed into a…

tmpr tantrum

Purpose driven, reliable and a damn good time. No, I’m not describing your best friend or the qualities you look for in a mate. I’m talking about the unmatched innovation of the Tri-Modular Prism Riflescope, or TMPR, from Burris. When it comes to attention to detail, the new Burris TMPR sighting system doesn’t miss a single feature, no matter how small. Upon seeing it for the first time, I immediately knew that this was an optic I would want in any situation. You can tell right away that it was made to be reliable and to withstand a hell of a beating if required. But calling it an optic is misleading; it’s an entire system. With the TMPR 3 Kit that I had the pleasure of testing, the 3x32mm TMPR 3…
