Handguns and Gunsafes in October Shooting Industry Magazine

Shooting Industry magazine october 2022 optics read pistol handgun gunsafe

The October 2022 issue of Shooting Industry Magazine was just released. There are a number of interesting articles. CLICK HERE to access the full October 2022 issue for FREE.

One of the feature stories covers the increased popularity of “optics-ready” handguns. These come with slides configured to mount Red Dot optics. In some cases these new handguns are sold with the Red Dot optics pre-installed, ready to go. The Shooting Industry article explains:

“It wasn’t too long ago optics-ready handguns were little more than a novelty. But today, it’s difficult to talk about the handgun segment without delving into the increasing number of guns coming from the manufacturers with optics already installed, or ready to accept one.”

Shooting Industry magazine october 2022 optics read pistol handgun gunsafe

Mike Sfakianos, a senior manager at Bill Jackson’s in Pinellas Park, Florida, remembers customers coming into the store even three or four years ago and being skeptical about the utility of a Red Dot on a pistol:

“It was a slow start. People thought it was more of a competition-type thing. Now it seems like just about every manufacturer has gone to an optics-ready gun”, observed Sfakianos, noting customers are growing increasingly interested in carrying subcompacts with Red Dot optics.

If you are interested in a wide selection of optics-ready handguns, check out the recent Modern Carry: Best Optics-Ready Pistols article in the CheaperThanDirt Blog. This highlights ten current production pistols from Canik, CZ, FN, Hechler & Koch, Keltec, SCCY, SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield Armory, and Taurus. Below is the Taurus G3 T.O.R.O (Taurus Optic Ready Option), a full-frame pistol with 17+1 9mm capacity.

Gun Safes — Why Every Gun Owner Needs One

A second article in this month’s Shooting Industry magazine covers gun safes and security systems. This covers recent trends in gun safe design, marketing, and sale. The article notes that attacks on gun ownership and Second Amendment rights are increasing so it is more important than every for gun owners to have secure storage for their firearms both at home and in their vehicles. FYI, gun thefts from vehicles make up the largest source of stolen guns.

Based in Charlotte, NC, Hyatt Guns stocks over 7,000 guns in a vast 20,000 square-foot facility. To complement its massive firearms inventory, Hyatt Guns maintains the largest safe showroom in the region.

Cutting Edge Digital Gunsafe Technology — There Are Potential Problems
Hyatt Guns offers a range of mechanical and electronic gun storage options, though Hyatt Guns stays away from hyper-technology because it’s often expensive and difficult to service. V.P. Mitch Hyatt notes: “The mechanical dials and simple digital safes have great failsafe options. We can help customers set these up, and we work with several local locksmiths if they ever need one. But, with the larger vault safes, when you get into the fingerprint technology, often times it leads to replacing the whole unit, and you have to deal with whether the manufacturer will take it back or replace it.”

Lead-Free Bullet Option for Hunters — the Nosler E-Tip

Nosler eTip lead free unleaded no-lead hunting bullet copper solid Barnes TSX

In some areas of the country (California in particular), hunters are now forbidden to use bullets that contain lead. The Biden administration is currently pursuing a wide-scale ban on lead ammo on Federal lands. If you need a lead-free projectile for your deer rifle, consider Nosler’s E-Tip projectile. This has plenty of penetrating power and retained energy while complying with laws requiring “unleaded” ammunition. An “expansion chamber” behind the green polymer tip helps ensure reliable expansion with 95% weight retention. The video below shows a .30 caliber, 180gr lead-free ‎E-Tip‬ impressively power through TWO 12-inch blocks of Ballistics Gel at 100 yards. This was fired from a .308 Winchester.

Watch 180gr eTip Penetration and Expansion in Ballistic Gelatin:

Nosler eTip lead free unleaded no-lead hunting bullet copper solid Barnes TSX

Nosler claims the E-Tip (“Expansion Tip”) bullet has advantages over other solid copper hunting bullets: “Unlike the competitor’s one-piece designs, Nosler E-Tip bullets will not blow the petals off at extreme velocities nor will the low end expansion ever be questioned, as the minimum impact velocity is set at 1800 fps for standard calibers.” One hunter, posting on Facebook, gave the E-Tip high marks: “I have had the opportunity to take a pig with a 130 gr E-Tip from my .270 and they work flawlessly. My son took two pigs with his .300 Win Mag and 165gr E-Tips and they worked flawlessly as well.”

This video illustrates the design and construction of the Nosler eTip Bullet:
