At the top of our lineup this week is the news that our favorite gun manufacturers are starting to catch up to their backlogs, and that means they're releasing new products! Don't miss our review of Mossberg's new series of 590 pump-action shotguns, which the company has dubbed the 590S line.

While we're on the subject of Mossberg, it was just a few years ago that the company re-entered the pistol market with the MC1sc, which quickly became as classic as Mossberg itself. New for 2021 is the next generation's next generation, the new MC2sc pistol. Here are a few good reasons to give this carry pistol a closer look.

Halloween is tomorrow, and we hope you're ready! Every Friday this month, we've unleashed a new episode of our October Spooky Series. Turn out the lights and get ready to get spooked with: 

The Door to Hell: I don’t know about you, but when I imagine the door to hell, a fiery pit with spiders crawling in just about sums it up

The Pavagada Beast Nightmare: Forty years ago, in a remote area of India, five little girls were stolen from under their parents' noses. What took them, why ... and how?

Blood Falls:Why is a glacier in Antarctica bleeding? 

Savagery and Survival in Siberia: Last year, we profiled the creepy question of the Dyatlov Pass. As terrifying as that tale may have been, it has a sequel that's even more chilling. Was this this another mysterious tragedy, or the answer to the Dyatlov Pass mystery?

National Forest Serial Killer: Meredith Emerson and her dog were climbing Blood Mountain on New Year’s Day. She was an experienced hiker and familiar with the area. She was also a blue belt in Aikido, a form of martial arts. The National Forest killer later claimed that Emerson almost overpowered him.

Now, this isn't spooky at all! If you are one of the many who regretted not adding a Browning Hi Power to your collection before it was discontinued a few years ago, you now have another opportunity! Springfield Armory's new handgun, the “SA-35,” which denotes 1935, the year the first Hi Powers were introduced is here. Read our full review here

Since 1871, the National Rifle Association of America has promoted marksmanship, the national defense and the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to be a responsible gun owner. In celebration of that heritage, NRA has produced a hardbound, collectible book, To Keep & Bear Freedom: 150 Years of the National Rifle Association, chronicling NRA’s century-and-a-half of service to America

Most traditional holsters are going to require that you wear a belt—-if not a dedicated gun belt, then at least a sturdy one. This is a not-inconsiderable purchase especially when there are so many personal-comfort reasons to change it up. Sticky Holsters has a different solution: belt-free, tool-free, no special    expertise required

"Dad, will you take me deer hunting?": It was not a question I expected to hear from my 40-year-old daughter, especially from the girl who slept on the floor of the stand the last time I took her deer hunting at the age of 16. The years passed, and although she married a hunter, she had shown no interest in spending time in a deer stand. What's it like to mentor your daughter ... for a dad?

With roots tracing back to 1905, Armscor Precision International launched its U.S. operations in 1985. A short time later, they acquired Rock Island Armory and the rest is history. But what about "right now"? Well, they've got a sweet little .22 revolver that we think you'll love
