Review of the Cantamount Fury

Cantamount FurySo there I was neck deep in impatience. I’ve been trying to get my hands on a Yugo Pap AK pistol with the SB 47 for weeks now. My local gun store said he was trying to get them in and to check back regularly.

So anyway, I was in his store letting him say sorry they haven’t come in yet for the last time. I say for the last time because he was unboxing what I thought was a Saiga 12.

I’m generally right about certain things, but once in a blue moon I am wrong. He brought out a Chinese clone called the Cantamount Fury. Like a lot of things in his store he let me paw over it with no real intention to buy it since I’m a shooter on a budget. As you can picture, it’s an AK style shotgun, chambered in twelve gauge, and resembles an unconverted Saiga 12.

Semi Auto Shotguns vs Pump Action Shotguns

Semi Auto Shotgun vs Pump ShotgunShotguns are inexplicably American. They weren’t invented here, and were of course European imports, but the shotgun has distinguished itself as American in nature.

Two of the most successful shotguns, the Mossberg 500 and the Remington 870, are American designed and American built. The phrase riding shotgun comes from Stage Coach drivers armed with double barreled shotguns protected cargo and passengers across the American west. Shotguns serve en mass with our police forces and still have a place in the military.

Across the country the shotgun is one of the most popular firearms for everything from home defense to hunting. The shotgun has carved its own path in American culture and that is why the shotgun is distinctly American.

History & Review of the SIG Sauer P226

Overview of the SSIG Sauer P226IG Sauer P226

Sig Sauer has an interesting relationship with the American consumer. Outside of selling premium weapons to the United States and operating an American factory in New Hampshire , they are constantly standing up for gun rights. Easy to see why, this helps promotes gun sales to American citizens. For a company like Sig Sauer though we are a drop in the bucket when you examine their Government contracts.

History of the SIG P226

The Sig P226 for example has been the mainstay of the Sig Sauer line of handguns for decades. The Sig P226 was designed in 1984 for the United State Military’s pistol trials to replace the war horse 1911. The Sig P226 came in second place to the Beretta M9 and most assume this was due to per unit cost of the weapon, while others speculate the military wanted a manual safety on their weapon.

Either way the Sig P226 did not win the contest, but that didn’t stop the pistol from achieving worldwide success. The P226 did go on to be adopted for the U.S. Navy seals, and eventually the Coast Guard as well as NCIS, the DEA, the Federal Air Marshals, the Texas Rangers, and countless other police agencies in the United States and the World.

The 1911: An American Classic

History of 1911History of the 1911

The 1911 pistol was John Moses Browning’s most influential and legendary contribution to the world. This is saying a lot from a man who designed weapons like the M2 machine gun, the Browning BAR, and the Hi Power. The 1911 pistol is one of the most copied pistols in the world. The short recoil system employed on this pistol has become the standard for modern handguns.

The 1911 was the United States Military’s first foray in an automatic pistol. The weapon served faithfully on battlefields across the world, from the invasion of Normandy, to the Pacific Jungles, to the Chosin reservoir and Hue City Vietnam. To this day it serves with special operation forces in the United States Marine Corps. To say this 103 year old pistol is outdated is too sell it short.

The M1911 is still immensely popular with civilian shooters as both a self-defense firearm and a competition firearm. The M1911 can still be found across the country in the duty holster of law enforcement, and across the world with special operations authorized to use it. The M1911 is an extremely robust pistol that is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Taurus Judge Product Review – Best Gun Holsters for the Taurus Judge

Taurus JudgeReview of the Taurus Judge

The Taurus Judge arrived on the scene as the boringly named 4510 revolver. In 2006 Taurus made a brilliant marketing move after discovering a number of South Florida judges were carrying the 4510 as a means of defense inside the courtroom.

After discovering this, Taurus’ marketing team must have thrown their hands in the air and yelled Hallelujah. The weapon was rebranded as the Taurus Judge. Since then the weapon has exploded in popularity and the Taurus Judge has spawned a variety of different models. From the revolving carbine and laver action carbine models to the polymer public defender, the Field Judge, and the Raging Judge Magnum, the Judge is everywhere.

What makes the Judge so unique is its ability to fire .45 Colt and .410 shot shells. Traditionally shotguns aren’t revolvers, and they definitely aren’t pistols. So the Judge was seen as quite the novel concept. First off the judge is a big revolver with a cylinder near the same size as the standard 3 inch barrel, and in the case of the 3 inch chambering the cylinder is the same length as the barrel.
