The SCCY CPX-2 is a popular pistol in the lower price range. For 200 bucks, people are able to snatch one of these babies. SCCY makes alot of these guns in house in Florida. They constantly upgrade the components to improve durability, reliability, and quality control. But the question today is if this pistol is the best gun for your money as alot of people have felt?
When it comes to defending your home, it is hard to find a pistol that is better suited for the job than the Beretta M9A3. Today, there are a few more things that people want out of their home defense pistols. Options are key to satisfying the market of people wanting to defend themselves. Some of the things people are looking for are not as reasonable as others. However, the Beretta M9A3 hits that nice balance of features and characteristics that make it a terrific choice.
The Sig P239 is one of the latest pistols that Sig Sauer has discontinued production on. This comes at a time when single stack pistols are typically thought to be better as small and darn near micro in size. The P239 came in at a time when pistols came primarily in full size double stack varieties. The P239 was designed to be a step down in size and weight, and thus satisfy the demand on the market for a smaller pistol that still shoots like a full size pistol. Well, now times have changed. Pistols overall are able to be smaller and lighter thanks to modern technology and understanding metals and materials. However, I do not think that the new and improved pistols on the market offer the same things that the P239 still offers today.
It is a common interest for those wanting to carry concealed to want a compact pistol. Their size is easy to conceal and most of them on the market are pretty easy-going on the recoil. However, it is also a common theme for these people to get sucked into standards that are niche and unnecessary. I want to explore some of these using the firearms displayed in the featured photo. This is not meant to promote or sell any brand or type of pistol, but to help people understand the real story behind these different types of compact and subcompact firearms.
There is a new pistol coming to the market in late 2018 known as the Lionheart Regulus. This is actually a series of pistols with customizable options like frame and slide sizes, sights, different color frames and barrels, etc. This pistol is not by any means meant to compete with low cost pistols from Ruger or Taurus, but rather to go in line with high end options on the market like Wilson Combat, Zev, and others..
When it comes to choosing a firearm to carry, the civilian market is riddled with opinions that seem less educated and more emotional. People love using comparisons with little consideration of factors that truly make the difference for the end user. The Sig P239 SAS is a less popular Sig Sauer pistol that gets very little credit, and is in fact considered outdated and useless overall. I am going to go over the pistol and review the characteristics it provides, and hopefully open your mind as a reader and a potential user of this pistol.
Recently I posted on the channel Facebook page that I had acquired a Police trade-in H&K USP40. My intention, as the title states, is to make a few changes to this pistol and then make it into my dedicated carry pistol. I have been in the process of making the switch to .40 caliber for more serious self defense. My experience and knowledge have made me realize that my skill, knowledge, and needs all pointed to the .40 caliber being an obvious upgrade over the 9mm.
There is a constant complaint about full size pistols that they are too large to be carried comfortably or without printing. The Clinger Holsters No-Print-Wonder V2 proves that there are holsters out there that can functionally conceal a full size pistol like the Beretta PX4 Storm. Though I would not classify this holster as the ultimate in comfort, it certainly has made carrying one of my favorite full size pistols easy.
It has been a while since I took the Walther PPS out for some range time. I figured that I might as well give it a shot and see how I perform with it. While I was at it, I figured that it would be a good time to test other products like the Comfort Cling from Clinger Holsters and my preferred carry load, Remington 115 grain JHP. I had fun shooting the pistol, and I found some things that I think are very relevant to share.
The gun market today, whether in sales or training, is concentrated away from the traditional DA/SA design. But is the design DEAD just because it is not as popular? I think we can answer that by evaluating something that I would consider to be the source of misunderstanding that the DA/SA pistol suffers from. It may not be the most popular action on the market today, but I personally have found that the rewards outweigh the few disadvantages.
