Once again it’s the week of the SHOT show, the trade show where the firearms industry gathers together in Las Vegas to show their wares. New firearms, new optics, new lights, new wonder lubes made from angel tears and Chuck…
We’re taking a break from revolvers that I own and looking at some cool wheelguns from SHOT Show. First on the list is the Korth Sky Marshal, a 6 shot, medium frame revolver chambered in 9mm that doesn’t require the use of moonclips.
One of the neat ideas in the revolver world is the concept of a “kit gun” – a lightweight revolver designed to go in your outdoors kit for general use. Obviously, the Smith & Wesson 317 Kit Gun is the best example of this species, but there are other guns that fit the bill as well.
This open letter was just posted by the ATF regarding the Sig SB-15 brace. You can read the PDF here, but because I’m a bro I have copied the entire thing for our readers. Full text follows: OPEN LETTER ON…

Everyone has to start somewhere. This is my revolver Genesis, the first wheelgun I ever owned, and one of two guns I’ll never sell, no matter what. It’s not an heirloom, or a priceless piece of history. It’s a humble .22 WMR revolver made by Weihrauch in Germany an imported by EAA in the states. But it’s special to me.
The 70s and 80s were a great time to be a revolver aficionado. Thankfully, now is also a great time to be a revolver fan, because the great guns that were built in that era are still mostly alive and kicking, and if you’re smart can be had for a great price. For example, the Ruger Security Six – Ruger’s direct competitor to S&W’s K-frame in the LE/Security market of the 70s and 80s. Overbuilt by the standards of the day, the Six-series (Security Six, Speed Six, Service Six) could withstand a steady diet of magnum ammunition with little wear and tear. They were the standard issue firearm for US Border Patrol, the Postal Inspectors, and many other LE agencies.
Unicorns are mythical beasts, and even though some (crazy) people claim to have seen one, they probably don’t exist. For quite some time after it was announced, the Smith & Wesson 929 occupied the same place as a unicorn: pure myth. But then the myth became reality, and for me that reality was awesome.
During this week, I’m going to be taking you guys through a tour of some of the various wheelguns I own. This started from a photo I posted on my fan page, which turned into a short post here on Gun Nuts simply titled “I like wheelguns.” We’ll start this series of posts with one of the guns that I’m most often associated with, the Ruger GP100.
NEWINGTON, N.H. (January 12, 2015) — SIG SAUER, Inc., introduces the classic P220® single-stack pistol chambered in the powerful 10mm Auto cartridge. The SIG P220 has now been paired with 10mm ammunition to deliver increased energy, longer-range capability in a…
I like wheelguns. You might have guessed that from reading the blog, but I hadn’t really thought about the scope of it until yesterday when a reader asked me on FB to post a photo of the round gun collection.
