  1. In the world of handguns, the P320 is relatively new on the scene. It was introduced back in 2014 and rose rapidly in the ranks of service weapons.

  2. Our Build of the Week this week went from zero to sixty really fast. We started with one product that we knew we wanted to try out on the range, and it was all downhill from there. The result was a gun that was pleasant to look at and doubly pleasant to shoot - exactly as all guns should be...

  5. This weeks build is a slight departure from what we normally feature. Nearly all the firearms we have shown on these emails are various personal builds from employees here at Rainier Arms.

The philosophy behind the build of this rifle was something to replace the department’s bolt guns for longer range shooting that also allowed SWAT sniper teams to participate in close quarters engagements if needed.

  7. The phrase that makes me shutter and shake the most is, “Oh… I’m good with my gun.  I go to the range.” I hear this so much when I invite people out to the facility to improve their skills as a CCW Civilian.  In fact… I’m serious when I say that 99% of the time, that is the response I get when I encourage people to come train with us.

  9. When I'm checking in on my Facebook groups, one of questions I see most often is "What is the best ____________ for my AR/pistol/shotgun?" Doesn't really matter what you fill in the blank with. It could be trigger, grip, rail, stock, whatever. Usually, that's all the information presented, and not a single specification more. When you're sitting on a retailer's site, especially one with a lot of options, picking out gear can seem pretty daunting. There's a wide range of pricing, quality, and designs. Let me see if I can recommend a few questions to ask yourself that will make choosing gear easier. They might also cut down on the snarky responses you get from the forums. Let me try to help you with buying gear with these 5 questions.
