Field Report: 4″ Colt King Cobra Target

There are few firearms that have excited me like the new Colt King Cobra. Though it stretched the budget, I listened to Mike’s advice and purchased my T&E sample, and I’m so glad I did. This three-inch, “Goldilocks” .357 has become one of my favorite handguns period, and certainly my favorite carry revolver. Colt has expanded the King Cobra line with the 2″ King Cobra Carry, a 2″ DAO model and the subject of this review, the Colt King Cobra Target.

What is The Best Revolver Speedloader?

We have been reviewing – or at least examining – speedloaders here since RevolverGuy’s very beginning. I will admit that a lot of our speedloader reviews have been shaped by my personal preferences and bias. Today I’m going to attempt to add some objectivity to the question, “what is the best revolver speedloader?” Continue reading “What is The Best Revolver Speedloader?”

Nighthawk Custom Carry 5K Range Report

Eleven months ago I posted a “First Look” at my Nighthawk 1911. I had just 750 rounds on the gun at the time. I have since increased the round-count to just a little over 5,250. I have also carried this gun more or less daily for 10 months (so far). This is a follow-up report on the performance of my Nighthawk Custom carry.

Zeta-6 J-Strip and J-Clip Reloading Devices

Sometimes you know what you’re gonna say before you even begin an article. Other times you think you know what you’re going to say and get surprised. The latter is the case with this article – I had some preconceptions going in, but a little experience turned me completely around. Today we are going to look at two new reloading devices: the J-Strip and the J-Clip from a new company, Zeta-6. Continue reading “Zeta-6 J-Strip and J-Clip Reloading Devices”

Hey guys, I’m trying to keep these to an absolute minimum, but we really do need your direct support via Patreon. I may have explained why in the past. I want to hit it again, because support is incredibly important to the sustainability of RevolverGuy.  Today I’m going to demonstrate the respect I have for our audience.

AAR: Greg Ellifritz’s Snubnose Revolvers

Last weekend I was at Greg Ellifritz’s “Snubnose Revolvers for CCW/Self-Defense” class in Clarksville, Ohio. I had been looking forward to this class for a long time, and my only disappointment was that Mike couldn’t join me. Today’s post will be an AAR of this class.

The Trials and Tribulations of the RevolverGuy

Like most of you, I anxiously await Mike’s posts. He writes better than me, knows more than I do, and despite being an officer (forgive me, John Basilone) is smarter than me. So naturally I look forward to seeing what comes out of his head and onto the screen. And, like most of you I really enjoyed his recent article on light training loads. But it got me thinking… Continue reading “The Trials and Tribulations of the RevolverGuy”
