Don’t Trade in That Old Glock Too Soon
In 2017, Glock released the Gen 5 models, and a surprising number of people traded in their Gen 4 Glocks to get the newest model. I think this is a mistake.
To date, Gen 4 Glocks have passed the 10,000 and 15,000 round marks with exactly zero replacement parts. And these guns continue to perform well.
There older Glocks that have even more rounds through them, also without any replacement parts.
The bottom line is that Glocks have a very long service life. So much so, that a quick check of used listings reveals that older models—Gen 2 and Gen 3 Glocks—are still going for around $400.
Clearly, Glocks hold their value well because they were designed for lifelong use. If you suspect that your gun is
Alternative Calibers for the AR-15 Platform From Ammunition Depot
The AR-15 firearm platform is far and away one of the most popular civilian (and likely military) firearm platform available. And .223 5.56 ammo is far and away one of the most popular chambering for AR-15s. However, one of the reasons that the AR-15 platform is so popular is its modularity. Often nothing more than an upper receiver group and mag switch-out is required to be shooting another caliber of cartridge from the same rifle.
And the cartridge options available in AR-15 carbines truly run the gamut, from .22 LR plinking to massive thumpers like the .450 Bushmaster, .458 SOCOM, and .50 Beowulf. In response to the mo
Clever Early Attempts at High-Capacity Pistols
There were some fantastic, sturdy, dependable pistols produced in the past, without question. However, there’s no question that modern firearms, in general, are more efficient, more reasonably engineered, lighter, more reliable, and—due to modern oversight, standardization, and enforced regulations—considerably safer than the handguns of the past. Among the advancements modern pistols enjoy over their predecessors is capacity. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to find a 9mm pistol with a flush magazine carrying 18, 19, or 20+1.
That’s three times or more than the capacity of the average revolver or semi-automatic pistol carried by civilians, law enforcement,
The Best Suppressed Calibers for Home Defense
For decades, suppressors had been largely ignored by civilian gun owners, even those aware that, in most of the U.S. (minus eight states), they were, and are, legal. They seemed to suffer from a reputation as tactical accoutrements that only intelligence operatives and bad guys had any use for. However, as a larger appreciation of their benefits spread, suppressors became more popular for sport and recreation shooting, hunting, and home defense. So are suppressors for defending your home a good idea?
Cons of Using Suppress
Which Is the Better Practical Firearm Platform: AK-47 or AR-15?
There are countless gun debates, all of which have enlivened conversations at shooting ranges, in gun stores, and between opinionated friends for decades now, with no sign of being resolved. They include revolver vs. semi-automatic, 9mm vs. .40S&W, 9mm vs. .45 ACP, and rifle vs. shotgun vs. handgun for home defense. There’s one debate, however, that was for a long time (though less nowadays) almost certainly the most ardent, impassioned, and personal of them all. (It was also a debate that was being literally fought out on battlefields all over the world.)
That debate is, of course: Which is better, the AK-47 and 7.62 ammo, or the (M16) AR-15 and .223 am
The Best Calibers for Suppressors
According to their portrayal in movies and TV, the chief purpose of suppressors (aka “silencers”) is quiet, quick mafia assassinations, silently dispatching the guards in a casino, or storming a jungle compound in camouflage face paint. And whenever suppressors are used, they make that whisper-quiet spit-hiss noise that you wouldn’t hear in the next room. Of course, the reality is quite a bit different in most ways. For one, suppressors do have a place outside of the TV and film world of secret agents and covert warfare.
At firing ranges in Europe, for instance, suppressors were not only common but often required to minimize noise pollution. The same principle has inspired tens of thousands of gun owners in the United States to purchase suppressors. They
