Shootists 35th Anniversary Bisley Single Seven

Custom guns are truly special. When a true gunsmith enhances a factory firearm, the results deliver a better shooting – and oftentimes a more visually appealing – gun. Embellishments can be both handsome and functional. A masterpiece becomes an heirloom when we are lucky enough to acquire a custom firearm.

Happy Halloween 2019

RevolverGuy Steve Tracy sure knows how to get into the spirit! Is that an awesome Jack O’ Lantern or what? Nice job, buddy!

I tried carving a Smith & Wesson pumpkin, but had a hard time installing the key lock on the lid. Ha!

Keep a close watch for ghosts, werewolves, vampires, and other beasties out there. Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to load up your trusty revolver with Silvertips on the big night? Just sayin . . .   ; ^ )

We hope all of you will have a fun and safe Halloween!

 

 

The Ruger Wrangler: Justin’s First .22!

Do you guys like IPAs? As a heavily tattooed, bearded, self-proclaimed beer guy I should probably appreciate the bright, piney hoppiness of a good IPA. But I don’t. Can’t. I much prefer the sweeter, rounder, malty notes of a lager, dunkel, or porter. I’ll even take a crisp pilsner (excluding classic, American “yellow beer” with a variation of the word “light” in the name, of course) over an IPA. When the IBUs climb above fifty, I’m tapping out.

Custom Single-Six: Tyler Gun Works’ RSSE

I first encountered Tyler Gun Works a few years ago while searching for a Christmas gift for a close friend, one of the proverbial guys who is very difficult to buy for. Jeff Quinn of Gunblast.com wrote about a high quality tomahawk that piqued my interest. Its blade was case hardened and its handle was made of hickory. I went to the manufacturer’s website and found several models to choose from and they were all made of stainless steel. Continue reading “Custom Single-Six: Tyler Gun Works’ RSSE”

Bowen Rough Country Revolver Sights

The Bowen Rough Country rear sight is a well-known upgrade among revolver enthusiasts. Several months ago I reached out to Hamilton Bowen to request a set of these sights for review. He obliged, but through a mailing SNAFU (that was completely my fault) I didn’t receive them for several months. Continue reading “Bowen Rough Country Revolver Sights”

Much Ado About Ejector Rod Length

If you hang around RevolverGuys long enough, you will eventually run across a discussion of ejector rod length. It seems that often this will take the form of, “so-and-so revolver doesn’t have a long ejector rod” or “I’ll by X instead of Y because it has a full-length ejector rod.” Frequently this conversation seems to be based around superficial factors, and I’m guilty of this myself. Continue reading “Much Ado About Ejector Rod Length”

Universal Holster: The Galco Switchback

I suppose I’m not like most gun owners. One way in which I likely differ is I like a full complement of support equipment for each gun I own. At a minimum this means one high-quality holster and a couple speedloaders for each of my revolvers. When the Galco Switchback was announced I found myself wondering what utility a universal fit holster would offer me. Continue reading “Universal Holster: The Galco Switchback”

Ruger 9mm LCR Field Report

I was late to the LCR party. As I mentioned in my previous article, the gun’s radical looks were a turnoff to my conservative tastes, and I didn’t get excited about it until I started getting some trigger time on them. Then, the performance caught my immediate attention, and I realized I’d been missing out on a helluva gun. Continue reading “Ruger 9mm LCR Field Report”
