” These projectiles, in .45ACP and 12 gauge, fire a center slug as well as 3 outer fragments that are tethered together for a controlled spread. So is this a gimmick, or is it an improvement to self defense ammunition? Let’s find out! “













The Semmerling LM-4 Pistol: Sleek, Strange, Secretive, Sought




” Sure, it looks like a smooth little semi-auto mouse gun but, as with many things in this crazy world, under it’s sleekness hides some strangeness. First, it’s not a pee-shooter, but rather a 5-shot .45 ACP hardballer. Second, its not semi-auto at all but rather more of a pump-action. It’s the Semmerling LM-4, and though it may look like a swan to some, at its heart it’s still one odd little duck.

Since the beginning of modern time, there have been rough handed individuals whose services are retained by certain quiet branches of the government to maintain a fragile system of covert operations. These

individuals are sent to exotic places, meet interesting people, and occasionally have to fight for their lives to make it back home.”







Colt M45CQB United States Marine Corps 45 ACP Semi-Automatic Pistol

” In July of 2012, I was very pleased to learn that the United States Marine Corps had selected Colt to manufacture their new Close Quarters Battle Pistol. Marine Corps System Command (MARCORSYSCOM) awarded the contract to Colt Defense, LLC. On July 18, 2012 for an indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery order for the new pistols, to be issued to Force Recon and Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command units.

The USMC specified that these new pistols be accurate, and Colt delivered. The M45 has a match-grade barrel, and it is very well-fitted to the slide, as is the slide to the frame. For accuracy testing, I secured the M45 into my Ransom Master Series machine rest, and fired for accuracy at a distance of twenty-five yards, firing five-shot groups with several different types of ammunition. Accuracy varied, depending upon the ammunition tested, but the average of the five-shot groups fired with each type of ammunition measured from well under an inch to the largest group fired of the day, which stretched out to three inches. Most everything measured between one and one-half to two and one-half inches, with a couple of Buffalo Bore loads doing very well, as did my handload which consists of Rim Rock 200 grain LWSC bullets loaded over charges of 5.4 grains of Titegroup powder. I really like the Buffalo Bore 230 JHP load. This is the same hollowpoint bullet that Remington loads into their Ultimate Home Defense load, but the Buffalo Bore bullet leaves the muzzle running almost 200 feet-per-second (FPS) faster. The 230 grain hollowpoint at just over 1000 FPS is a dandy 45 ACP load, suitable for either fighting or hunting.”

Heckler & Kock USC 45 Carbine




” The HK USC45 Carbine is a Blow Back operated civilian version of the famed HK UMP which has been employed by both military and law enforcement agencies around the world chambered in 45 ACP.

The USC45 is yet another fine example of Heckler & Kock’s commitment to the creed of “No Compromise”, based on the proven track record and performance of the UMP which is employed by military and law enforcement agencies around the world. The appearance of this carbine has been modified from that of the UMP in direct response to requirements to meet import sales. I would describe the overall appearance of the weapon as being simple, modern and sleek.

The frame is made of reinforced polymers with a skeletonized stock stock with a cheek pad and a pistol grip. The USC boastes a cold forged 16″ target barrel with a heavy bolt mechanism which accounts for the majority of the weapons weight. “




” Not too long ago the only semi-automatic Remington handguns you could find were manufactured in the 1920s. The company has continued to expand its revived M1911 line over the past few years, though, and the R1 Enhanced is one of the latest additions to the line.”

Double-Barrel 1911 Lands ATF Approval, Importation To Begin Next Year



  ” We can’t help but be excited about this crazy handgun. Yes, it’s ridiculous, we completely agree with that. It’s two inches thick and weighs four pounds unloaded. Even with a full set of magazines it’s got a capacity of 8+8+1+1 rounds, and it’s probably going to cost a cubic foot of money.

It’s just… we’re so surprised that this gun is going to even be available. How can we not want to get behind one? ”
