If you like living life big and loud, metal might just be your game. And nothing says “metal” in the gun world like the brand-new Smith & Wesson M&P 9 M2.0 Metal featured on the cover of the November-December 2022 issue of Tactical Life.
November-December 2022 Tactical Life
For this iteration of their ultra-popular M&P pistol, S&W tossed aside the polymer and made an aluminum-framed gun that feels good in the hand and shot 1-inch groups at 25 yards for author Mike Detty—outstanding accuracy from any striker-fired pistol!
That’s not all the “metal” we’re bringing you this issue, though. With hunting season coming up, we’re also featuring another new big, bad metal gun on our cover—S&W’s M350 X-Frame hunting revolver chambered in 350 Legend.
Between the gun’s outstanding accuracy and the 350 Legend cartridge really packing a punch downrange, this might just be the wheelgun you want to take to the deer woods with you next time out.
Ever wish you had a better trigger in your favorite 1911 but just don’t have the patience to live without it for three or four months while it sits at the gunsmith shop? Nighthawk Custom has just introduced a new drop-in trigger system for 1911s that can be installed at home. Jay Langston tells us all about it, including how easy it is to install, starting on page 54.
This issue also brings the concealed carry practitioner plenty of good fodder. Our gear guides take a close look at the best tactical briefcases and shooting glasses. Plus, we go in-depth on the new Taurus G3XL hybrid pistol. We also explore a handful of surplus pistols that might just meet your EDC needs on a budget.
Get Your Hunt On
For hunters in our audience, ride along with the Tactical Life “Night Shooter” crew to chase coyotes in Nebraska with the good folks from CZ-USA. The fun and excitement might just have you planning a trip of your own.
And for those who think the 300 Blackout is dead, see what parts Frank Melloni recently used to build the perfect 300 BLK rifle.
Most long-range shooters are familiar with the Seekins name and the quality firearms the company regularly produces. In this issue, Sean Utley puts the new Seekins Havak HIT PRO to the test. The result: “Seekins has a HIT on their hands, literally and figuratively, and I was not surprised.”
Not All Business
Of course, we also provide you with a healthy dose of fun in this issue. After all, what could be more fun than a tactical lever gun? How about a modern-day rimfire Tommy Gun or an armored submarine that can be equipped with six tubes to accommodate Black Scorpion torpedoes?
By the way, the S&W guns on our cover were just two of the new firearms our editorial team experienced firsthand at our recent 6th Annual Athlon Outdoors Editorial Rendezvous in Idaho.
