New Guns And Gear April 2024

Looking for a new iron or piece of kit to enhance the one you already own? Check out these 7 new bits of guns and gear to grow your firearms wish list.

The New Guns And Gear:

Staccato C

Tailored for all-purpose use, the Staccato C strikes a balance between carry convenience and duty/home defense effectiveness. The slim and short design of the pistol offers a confident grip across various hand sizes. Whereas its wide frame, flush with the slide, enhances durability and reduces felt recoil, delivering a more controllable shooting experience. Being a Staccato, the C is a 2011, giving shooters ample firepower in a 1911-style gun—in this case, 16 rounds of 9mm. As expected, the company has outfitted the gun with a lights-out trigger, breaking at right around 4 pounds.
MSRP: $2,600

Walther Arms PDP Compact Steel Frame

Kicking 2024 off in style, Walther Arms upped the level of its popular PDP line of pistols with the release of a Compact Steel Frame model. As its name suggests, the 9mm boasts an all-steel frame, prioritizing both durability and performance in the 4-inch barreled gun. The nice part is that the added weight considerably enhances recoil absorption, making the PDP much quicker and more accurate shot-to-shot. As a bonus, Walther maintains its hallmark ergonomic design in the grip frame, ensuring a comfortable yet robust feel.
MSRP: $1,700

Taurus TH10 10mm

Taurus TH10 feature
In the market for a robust full-sized DA/SA handgun chambered in potent 10mm Auto? Taurus has you covered with the TH10. Boasting a 4.25-inch stainless-steel barrel and a 15-round magazine capacity, the pistol doesn’t want for firepower. And, the TH10’s 28.5 ounces weight strikes a nice balance—light enough to carry, but hefty enough to soak up the 10mm stout recoil. Notable attributes include drift-adjustable front and rear sights, an accessory rail and an ambidextrous safety/de-cocker—making it righty and lefty friendly.
MSRP: $530

CCI Uppercut Defense .22 LR

CCI 22 lr
The gun industry has gotten more serious about the .22 LR as a self-defense caliber. Case in point: CCI Uppercut Defense. This purpose-driven round is tailored for small handguns and topped with a 32-grain hollow-point designed for appropriate penetration and consistent expansion in its terminal destination. The bullet, for the most part, resembles the iconic Stinger line and boasts a thicker copper jacket, similar to those found on .22 WMR. What you end up with is a round that ups the defensive potential of .22 handguns.
MSRP: $13, box of 50

Daniel Defense Daniel H9

Daniel Defense has resurrected the innovative Hudson H9, unveiling the Daniel H9 at SHOT Show 2024. Acquiring Hudson’s patents after the company’s unfortunate closure, Daniel Defense meticulously redesigned the 9mm handgun. While externally similar, the Daniel H9 only shares one component with its predecessor due to Daniel Defense’s commitment to elevated manufacturing standards. Retaining the 1911’s beloved features but incorporating modern elements like a striker-fire mechanism and an optics-ready slide, the Daniel H9 boasts the lowest bore axis in its class.
MSRP: $1,300

Ruger PC Carbine in .45 ACP

Ruger PC Carbine in 45 ACP
The PC Carbine has proven it’s a viable and potent option in PCCs. Now, Ruger is kicking the little fireball’s game up a notch with the introduction of the gun in .45 ACP. With a 16-inch threaded barrel, the carbine utilizes a blowback operating system and features an AR-style folding buttstock for enhanced portability. Adding utility to the platform, the company outfits the gun with an M-Lok handguard allowing for accessory attachments. And perhaps best of all, the design is Glock magazine compatible. In turn, magazine options are highly available and very economical. Overall, it’s not a bad package for those who prefer to shoot fat and slow.
MSRP: $1,010

Diamondback SDR (Self-Defense Revolver)

Diamondback SDR (Self-Defense Revolver)
Diamondback Firearms unveiled its Self-Defense Revolver (SDR) at the 2024 SHOT Show, marking its entry into centerfire wheel guns. Chambered in .357 Magnum, the SDR has the chops for both home and personal defense, and at a mere 21 ounces, it makes for a more than acceptable CCW option. A good looker, the 2-inch barreled revolver is machined from premium stainless steel and has six rounds on board. Furthermore, its low-profile fiber-optic sights, concealed hardware and rounded edges prevent snags and optimizes the gun for carry. And, the DA/SA pistol has a top-notch trigger, making for a smooth, non-stacking break in double action and a very sensitive trip in single.
MSRP: $777
