There has been plenty of firearm tests, but not many were willing to test a commonly looked down pistol, Hi-Point.In fact I've seen about 2 or 3 other tests. Now, Tim from Gun Nuts Media decided to test one himself.
So far, out of 150 rounds it shot, it had 2 failures to go in to battery.

In recent years, zombie mania has swept both the mainstream and the firearm industry. Just this SHOT Show there were plenty of zombie-themed firearms, accessories, and targets. So it is natural that it crept into training curriculum.
One of the classes I recently watched was Zombie Attack!! class from Firearms Training Associates(FTA).
There has been plenty of zombie-themed competitions(Outbreak Omega being one) and I am sure there are classes that already have zombie-themes integrated in to them. But some of them seem to be nothing more than having zombie targets in place of regular targets. Standing at a line and shooting zombie targets is fine, but if one can add more to the training it will be even more interesting.

Shooting Illustrated has an article on budget variable power AR optics. Three scopes it looks at are,
Firefield 1-6X24mm 1st Focal Plane Illuminated Riflescope
Weaver Kaspa 1.5-6X32mm
Leatherwood 1-4X24mm CMR Tactical
These are scopes, not RDS(red dot sights). RDS is what we usually think about when it comes to AR sighting system, but there are good scopes that can be used too.

A lot of jackets have draw cord adjuster at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions, which happens to be the area where we carry our guns. So it was a matter of time before an accidental discharge was caused by the adjuster getting stuck in the holster or trigger guard.
Here is one with graphic photo of wound from Gun Digest
Please be careful when you wear clothings with these adjusters. No need to holster fast since no shooting is won by fast holstering. Some people get rid of the adjuster, some people use duct tape over it.
