S&W M&P M2.0 Series

For those of you who love the polymer pistol goodness of the Smith and Wesson M&P line, an exciting new development has occurred. The M&P M2.0 series has been released. We here at Tactical Gun Review got our greasy mits on a few and here are our reactions to the new line:

SIG Sauer P938

I never set out to buy a SIG Sauer P938 Nightmare. I was pretty happy with my sub-compact 9mm handgun (a Heckler and Koch P2000SK). However, it was a bit large for real concealed carry. As a firearms technician for a national sporting goods chain (big deal, right?), I see a lot of pistols. Anytime a gun comes in for trade-in, I clean and inspect it before it goes out onto the floor.

So, I was in the back, examining the recent trade-ins. Among them was a barely-used SIG P938 Nightmare. The thing was in pristine condition. Now, I like the 1911 style, but hadn’t considered it for a carry gun. Upon examining the the Nightmare and was impressed with the fit, finish and crisp trigger. Then I raised it up and aimed down the sights. I blinked and lowered the weapon. I raised it again.

MSA TC2000 Ballistic Helmet – My Brain Bucket

My second year in Iraq, I took along a MSA TC2000 ballistic helmet. More commonly known as the MICH (or in the Army, the ACH), this helmet provides level IIIA protection from fragments and pistol rounds. Why did I buy my own instead of taking what the Army would give me at CIF down in Ft. Benning? Easy; I was a contractor and the Army hated my guts.

Zastava CZ999 Compact 9mm pistol

Unless you’re a connoisseur of Eastern-European weapons, you’ve probably never heard of the Zastava CZ999 Compact pistol. So out of all the pistols in the world, why did I choose this to replace my HK USP 9mm?

I’ve had excellent experiences with a wide range of firearms made by the Serbian company Zastava. As stated in a previous article, I’m a fan of Serbia. They produce good rifles, good soldiers (though my experience with this is limited to the contractors I knew in Iraq)  and good liquor.

Grand Power Duo – the K100 Mk7 and P1 Mk7

After they sent me the Stingray-C pistol, I got an email from Century International Arms, listing their new products. At first, I thought the email was simply an advertisement. Then I noticed they were asking which of their new products I wanted to review. I had to quell the urge to respond, “Everything.”

My eye settled on a pair of Slovakian handguns. The K100 Mk7 an P1 Mk7, both made by the company Grand Power. Before long, Dina Sanders of Century (who is quite helpful, by the way) had arranged for the Slovak Twins to be sent to me. Before long, my dealer called me up and said, “More pistols here for you. Damn, how do you do this?”
“What can I say? The CIA sends me guns.” Yeah, I know it’s a bad joke. Thankfully, there’s nothing bad about the Grand Power pistols.

Stingray-C Pistol

My friends know that I’m a pretty judgmental person. I’m also known to link two completely unrelated topics together in my mind. So it should come as no surprise that I often judge foreign countries on their firearms and their beer.
