#SundayGunday: Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory

by
posted on April 2, 2017

Some might say that every properly equipped hunter should have a .22 LR handgun. You can shoot small game for the pot, rid the camp of pests and pass the midday doldrums plinking at makeshift targets. The new Smith & Wesson Victory semi-automatic is one of the best guns we've encountered for all these things. Heck, that's why we'll be awarding it an NRA Golden Bullseye Award later this month at the 146th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta. You can learn more about the SW22 Victory with the video embedded above, hosted by Executive Editor Adam Heggenstaller.

Review: Winchester 400 Legend

Winchester’s new 400 Legend is a streamlined, mid-sized straight-wall cartridge intended to fill the gap between its wildly popular 350 Legend and the notorious 450 Bushmaster. It is—in our opinion—a masterstroke of genius.
