Sig Sauer has launched the "Parts Picker" section of their website for their P365 pistols (FOUND HERE). While not revolutionary it's cool to see a manufacture create a webspace where parts can be easily selected and ordered. The user is presented with a slck graphic when you select a part to order and it makes it easy to ensure you're getting the right thing. If Sig wanted to take it to the next level I would like to see a reccomended replacement interval for the selected part. Something like "recoil spring should be replaced every 4,000 rounds", or "inspect extractor claw for chips and replace accordingly".
Currently the Parts Picker is live for the P365 pistol and MCX rifle, hopefully this becomes popular for Sig and more guns are add...
In my opinion carrying a flashlight is almost as important as carrying a gun. Reason being is a sufficiently powerful enough flashlight can easily be used as a non-lethal deterrent. And in many cases can allow a concealed carrier to avoid confrontation all together. Aside from that serious point, flashlights help you see in the dark, so that’s good too. Many questions arise when considering flashlights for concealed carry: how many lumens? Weapon attached or handheld? Clicky tailcap or pushbutton? Those are all valid and interesting questions that truly deserve their own article, so today I will be touching upon my current carry and home defense light, the Streamlight HL-X.

Trijicon has revealed a new pistol optic LINK, the SRO. Boasting the same mounting footprint as the RMR but featuring much larger glass, top-loading battery, and the ability to permanently lock in a brightness setting.
I am an unapologetic lover of pistol-mounted red-dots, so any new tech gets me excited. I can’t help but wonder why Trijicon didn’t go with a closed emitter design though like what Aimpoint is doing with their ACRO sight. Will be following this one closely.
I’ve been a concealed carrier now for almost 10 years, maybe not too impressive in relation to some of the old-timers in the gun arena but not trivial either. I quickly decided that appendix carry was my preferred method. Over the years I’ve developed some tips and tricks that have helped me make the most of this carry method, and it would be my pleasure to share them with you fine folks.
When purchasing an appendix holster, especially for a gun I have not carried yet (now a-days I carry Glocks but I’ve went through a couple carry guns in my time), a requirement for me is ride height adjustment. I literally will pass on a holster if I can’t adjust ride height. Reason being is that the core of appendix comfort is how the gun...
Welcome back everyone. It’s Tyler again with a new review. This time over HK’s latest striker fired polymer blaster, the VP9. This gun made its debut a couple years ago and made quite a splash in the polymer gun market due in part that since the 1990’s HK has focused solely on hammer fired pistols (USP, P2000, P30 etc.). The VP9 represents the newest pistol technology HK has to offer so let’s dive into some first impressions.
Let’s go over this piece starting at the very top, the sights. HK equips the standard VP9 with a set of photo-luminescent sights. Basically just a fancy way of saying they glow in the dark. The sights have a good picture and they’re suitably stout and made of steel, I am confident th...
Hey everybody, Tyler is back with a new review. This time it’s over Sig Sauer’s latest concealed carry minded pistol, the P365. This little guy is something special, and represents a new class of pistol for concealed carry. You may remember my Glock 43X and Glock 48 reviews (Found HERE, and HERE respectively), in those reviews I mentioned how Glock created a brand new frame size. Well, Glock’s inspiration for those guns is undoubtedly the Sig P365. With a weight of 17.8-ounches and a capacity of 10 rounds the P365 shook the firearm industry when it debuted recently, so let’s get into the details of why it’s special.

Starting with the top the P365 comes from the factory with absolutely excellent sigh...
Welcome back everyone! It’s Tyler again with another review. This time it’s over the second half of the new Glock hotness, the G48. Last week I reviewed the G43X (if you want to read it feel free HERE). The G48 is very similar to the G43X, filling in the “Silver Slimline” Glock series. Let’s go ahead and jump into the first impressions to get into the details.
Just like the G43X the 48 has the same 10 round frame size that’s not quite a double-stack and also not quite a single stack. It has the same single-sided slide release, the same mag release design, and the same familiar Glock sights. Where it sets itself apart from the 43X is that its slide is longer. Do be specific the G48 has a slide length of 7.28 Inches, w...
Greetings and welcome to the official blog of J&D Firearms! My name is Tyler and today I am bringing to you a review of the latest and greatest from Glock, the G43X. The G43X is a part of what Glock is calling the “Silver Slimline Series”, pretty catchy name. The niche it fills is that of the slimmest and lightest Glock that still holds 10 rounds in its magazine. In fact, this magazine is where the G43X differentiates itself. It represents a brand new frame size for Glock that’s not quite a single-stack, and not quite a full blown double-stack (stack referring to how ammunition is staggered in the magazines). Because of this, the G43X has a grip as long as a mid-size Glock 19, but it’s almost as slim as the diminutive G43 that holds ...
