Signing Books at Shot Show 2014 – Lynne Finch

Signing Books at Shot Show 2014 - Lynne Finch

It was my honor to meet and talk with 100s of attendees at Shot Show.  One of the ways I did that was by doing two book signings at Rumpf’s and Anglers Book Sellers. It was so much fun, shooters are some of the nicest people in the world.  My book, Taking Your First Shot, is doing very well and I had fun promoting it at Shot Show with instructors, gun shop owners and a lot of men who had me autograph it for their wives. Lynne Finch Peritus Holdings, Inc., the owner of the Firearms Network, encourages a free and open exchange of ideas by guest blog posts to provided various Read More

Shot Show 2014 Media Day at the Range – Shooting Clays

Shooting Clays at the Range

At Shot Show 2014 Media Day at the Range the vendors bring out lots of guns, mostly new models, and provide ammunition to allow us the chance to shoot.  Think of it as Disneyland for shooters. Remington gave me a chance to use a 12 gauge and try shooting clays.  I’m a pistol shooter, slowly getting into the long guns.  Bottom line, the clays had nothing to fear.  They flew, I fired and watched each of them sail quietly to the ground, fully intact.  I watched other, more experienced shooters, take on the clays.  I could see the appeal, watching the clay shatter in mid-air.  I think Read More

GLOCK 42

Glock introduced their single stack .380 compact pistol. I had to opportunity to see it at Shot Show in Las Vegas recently. I also had the chance to shoot it. Slightly larger than a Ruger LCP, it fit reasonably well in the hand, it is a small, but not tiny, gun. It shot smoothly, in true Glock fashion. While many expressed the wish that Glock would introduce a single stack 9mm, it appears that they felt the need to introduce a “pocket pistol” to meet the perceived market demand. While not my first choice for a carry gun, this was much easier to shoot than the Ruger LCP, and slightly Read More

New Version of the Kris Vector

New Version of Kris Vector

The new version of the Kriss Vector has an adjustable stock, making it easier to control.  At Shot Show, those of us fortunate enough to get to Media Day on the Range got to shoot it, and I got to shoot it on Fully Automatic.  If you’ve never had the chance, the gun does tend to drive to the right slightly as the brass is coming out in a steady stream.  But the smile that comes with shooting on full auto lasted about 6 hours.  It was the most fun I had the entire trip! Not inexpensive, it is an unusual design, in the action comes back and down, vice straight back, which minimizes the Read More
