Within this past month, CBP (Border Patrol) stations were hit hard by an inspection performed by agency armorer/inspector from CBP Harper’s Ferry campus on their issued Colt M4 rifles. These details were passed on to me from a confidential source and…

Revolvers at 240 fps.
Top row, left to right: two Magtech .38 Special 158 grain LSWC; two DoubleTap .38 Special +P 158 grain hardcast LSWC; two Federal .357 Magnum 158 grain JSP.
Bottom row, left to right: two Federal .38 Special 158 grain LRN, two Federal Gold Medal 148 grain full WC.

You probably have not heard the name James Broadnax before. I first learned of his name when the press covered a double murder that took place outside of a recording studio in Texas. Mr. Broadnax and his two accomplices were…
Top: Colt Cobra .38 Special
The Cobra is an aluminum framed revolver on Colt’s D-frame that was produced until 1981. Unlike its competitors from S&W, the Corbra (and Detective Special) are unique because of their six-shot capacity. Also, the cylinder rotates clockwise from the shooter’s perspective, unlike S&W and Ruger DA revos.

The Pocket 9 was a single-stack 9mm before it was cool, and an early attempt from Colt to get back into the CCW game. The gun was eventually discontinued allegedly due to a patent infringement lawsuit from Kahr, and was never heavily produced. Today used models will fetch a hefty price as the gun has a cult following both with hipster CCW dudes and (of course) Colt collectors.
Why? Because we can.
