RMR30 is very small

Keltec views RMR30 as a hunting and plinking carbine. It can be that, but I see it more as a home defense rifle for people who cannot hold up a heavy rifle or deal with much recoil. From a 16″ … Continue reading

Production RMR30 carbine arrived

Anna doesn’t like heavy rifles. To her, even an AK clone is too heavy, so this little carbine is much more to her liking. Loaded with 30 rounds of 22wmr, it weighs 2.3kg (4.2lbs). The production version differs from the … Continue reading

Pretty is as pretty does

I used to view vz58 as a quaint design roughly analogous to AK47, but uglier. I’ve since become a fan: the rifle is shorter than an M1 carbine and no heavier, while shooting a more potent round with mild recoil. … Continue reading

Luck is often on the side of large magazines

Henry Big Boy See Ballistics by the Inch for the actual velocity numbers. 240gr Hydro-shock at 1600fps+ seems quite respectable, especially since the recoil in this gun is very mild. I got this carbine after trying the 45Colt version and … Continue reading

Good carbine for new shooters

Integrally suppressed 10-22 (AAC barrel) with 4x Leupold scope and 25-rd magazine. I try to start new shooters with quiet, accurate and easily operated firearms. It’s important to make the first session fun. Once trigger control and sight alignment are … Continue reading

New quad rail for Keltec Sub2000

The original quad rail for Sub2000 had a bit of flex in it. While sights installed on it seemed to keep zero, it didn’t inspire confidence. Keltec updated the rail and the new version is rock-solid. I tried a 45* … Continue reading

Henry Big Boy

In March, I had an opportunity to shoot several rounds through a Henry Big Boy in .45 Colt. I am not, ordinarily, a fan of lever actions, but that one clicked with me. Having more rifles than range time, I … Continue reading
