Fairfax, Virginia - In today’s ever-changing firearm landscape, one personal defense handgun has stood the test of time – the J-Frame revolver.

The J-Frame, along with its various configurations and clones, is the single most popular small frame revolver ever made. But for all its simplistic, compact and dependable appeal, the J-Frame’s lack of options for integral light attachments was a significant drawback – until now.

The NRAstore’s Compact Revolver Grip Light is not a conventional add-on that light that attaches to a rail or gun frame... more on the NRA Store’s Compact Revolver Grip Light ...

Your concealed-carry Shield can easily become your home-defense handgun

Could the Russian mainstay be the best .30-caliber option for America’s rifle? Shooting Illustrated Steve Adelmann realizes that there's more to the 7.62×39 mm cartridge than he thought ...

AR Accuracy with 7.62×39 mm
While you might not associate the AK-47’s cartridge with accuracy, out of an AR-15 the 7.62x39 mm can produce tiny groups. Could the Russian mainstay be the best .30-caliber option for America’s rifle?

In an AR-15, the 7.62×39 mm cartridge is more accurate than you may think.

Like many current and former “ground-pounders,” my view of the AK family of firearms used to be stereotypical: They go bang when you pull the trigger and throw rounds in the general direction you point them. I used a bunch of AK variants during my Army career, but I never gave Mikhail Kalashnikov’s simple masterpiece much thought beyond its “minute-of-man” accuracy, uncomfortable folding stock and ample muzzle flash. Taking the time to actually zero them can make AKs aim-worthy, but they are still not known for precision. I always assumed the 7.62×39 mm cartridge they fire was likewise incapable of doing much more than moving through the air and hurting whatever it occasionally hit. It turns out that I was very, very wrong.
