[Glocktober Finale] Grey Ghost Giveaway

As we roll into the last week of Glocktober, we’d like to thank you for taking this adventure with us. Glocktober was our first foray into this brave new world, and we’re happy to hear all the hype. So far, we’ve given away 3 Glock-inspired pistols. Each one drew from a theme within the Glock community, including EDC, Competition, and a tactical Roland (Fauxland) Special. For our final pistol giveaway, we wanted to do something special, so we partnered with Grey Ghost Precision to provide a brand-new factory pistol: the Combat Pistol Compact (or CPC). It’s an original creation by Grey Ghost that takes many of the premium features found in custom Glock pistols and makes them standard. In the hand, the CPC is more...[ Read More ]

[Glocktober] Roland Special Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Kelly H. in Washington! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. The future of pistols is now. Well, kind of. To understand the ingenuity behind the Roland Special, you must take a step back and look at history. Over the last 40 years, not a lot has changed in firearms tech. Our military is still using AR15-pattern rifles and open-bolt belt-feds. While there have been substantial improvements in design, materials, and accessories, the fundamentals have changed little. Until a program like the Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) introduces polymer or caseless ammunition, there’s no reason to stray from proven rifles. P...[ Read More ]

[Glocktober] Built for Competition Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Julian G., right here in Houston, Texas! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. Week two of Glocktober is here, and we’re changing the game with this giveaway. Last week, we presented our take on an EDC build. Compact, accurate, and faithfully reliable, our EDC pistol was built entirely around the needs of personal protection. This week, we wanted to focus on something new—something distant from the stresses of self-defense. We wanted to bring our attention to the ‘sport’ function of shooting sports. With that in mind, this week’s giveaway (if you haven’t already gathered from the title) is our “Built for Competition” Glock pistol....[ Read More ]

[Glocktober] Built for Carry Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, James O. in Georgia! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. A few weeks ago, we told you to expect some big news for Glock in October. This month, we’re kicking off our Glock category with 4 full weeks of giveaways and content. Every week, we’ll be highlighting a new pistol giveaway, each with its own specialized purpose. In addition, we’re launching new exclusives and planning sales later in the month to give you the best bang for the budget. Glock pistols have always been compelling out of the box, proven by a long track record for military and law enforcement, but a healthy aftermarket can improve on any design. No other pistol desi...[ Read More ]

Why Shoot Rimfire?

Why Shoot Rimfire? Seriously. Why shoot Rimfire? It’s weak, unreliable, hardly useful for self-defense, and is extremely dirty when compared with centerfire ammunition. Yet, .22 caliber rimfire rifles and pistols are some of the most frequently purchased firearms in the United States. Why would a seemingly useless caliber be one of the most popular? Well, to put it short, it’s just plain fun as hell. Zero recoil, an affordable variety of ammo, and an even greater variety of firearms make for endless ways to have fun plinking at the range, pest control, or even serious training and competition use. There are so many ways to make use of .22 rimfire and this article is aimed at diving a little deeper into all the different topics surroundin...[ Read More ]
