Pushing the Envelope


Some manufacturers are pushing the envelope with everything they do. In the US, on such company is Kel-Tec. A small family business with limited production but outstanding designs. In fact, the biggest criticism you will hear about them these days is that it's so hard to get your hands on their weapons. They could charge more than they do for their weapons, but they believe in treating customers fairly. Just like the Arms Dealer team!

Tactical Thursday

10376904_587372201371815_564128633280456022_nWe missed this weeks Wicked Weapon Wednesday, but here it is on Tactical Thursday. I give you the handgun standard from this moment moving forward.

I have not yet fired the FNX, but as a former owner of a Five-Seven and a PS90 I can say they are extremely accurate and bear almost the same recoil as a .22lr round.

The originals are still used in African conflicts to great effect while the carbine versions have been used in every South and Central American revolution or war. Of course the most famous version is the Mosin–Nagant M91/30 PU Sniper which was made famous by the Russian sniper Vasily Zaytsev and his 400 kills in WWII. While not as accurate as the Mauser or Springfield, it is cheap, durable and reliable.   10409688_584179261691109_5634301686979358438_n
