The Revision CV Ammo Pod Speedloader

It has been quite some time since I have reviewed a speedloader. To be honest, I thought we had covered just about everything on the market. When I released my comparison article What is the Best Revolver Speedloader, a reader alerted me one that I had missed: the Revision CV Ammo Pod.

RG PCC: Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine .357 Magnum

This review is a little out of the ordinary for us, and marks the first long-gun ever reviewed here at RevolverGuy. Though it ain’t a revolver, I can think of no better companion piece for a revolver than a like-chambered, lever-action rifle. Today we’re going to look at Henry’s Big Boy Steel Carbine in .357 Magnum. In my opinion this is one of the most interesting lever-actions out there.

Range Report: S&W 648 .22 Mag K-Frame

It’s nice to occasionally be reminded that life can still pleasantly surprise you. When I went to my FFL to pick up a couple of T&E revolvers, I had no idea there were not one but two revolvers from S&W waiting for me. I was also surprised at how studiously my girlfriend observed the three stainless wheelguns on the counter, and how before I even began filling out the 4473 she asked, “can I shoot this one?” Finally, I’m most surprised at how much I just like the S&W 648-2, even though it doesn’t fill any “need” I have, real or imagined.

Lessons Learned From a Year of Dry Practice

Twenty-nineteen is complete, and so is my (first) year of dry practice! My “plan” to do 10 minutes of dry practice per day in 2019 was something I dreamed up – and then posted on the spot – on January 1st. I didn’t give it much serious thought, I just came up with it and did it. Continue reading “Lessons Learned From a Year of Dry Practice”

The Best Revolvers For Women

I recently ran across a blog that listed some revolver recommendations for women. I scanned through the article and found most of the recommendations to be based on superficial factors like the color of the frame. Yep, – I kid you not –  pink.  The other key factors seemed to play right into the old size stereotype. According to this article, the J-Frame reigned supreme as the ideal revolver – or possibly even the ideal handgun – for women. Today I’m going to submit my thoughts on the best revolvers for women.

Field Report: S&W Model 610-3

The S&W 610 holds a special place in my heart. A version of the 610 was one of the revolvers I owned very early in my shooting life. Unfortunately it was one of those guns that lasted only briefly in my collection. To be honest I probably purchased it before its time; that is, before ammunition manufacturers were adequately supporting the 10mm Auto. Continue reading “Field Report: S&W Model 610-3”
