Known as the Personal Defense Weapon, or PDW, it is a small, compact firearm, like a sub gun, but fired a higher velocity round that was theoretically capable of penetrating body armor. The PDW continues to mature into the present day. Read more

Blast It Forward

Fortis manufacturing has developed a muzzle device that would have been a little more gentle on my young, tender ears back in the day. They recently released their Control Shield. The Control Shield was designed for shooters sending rounds down range in close proximity to other shooters; be it on the square range or the two way range. Read more
