Taurus G3 Pistol Review

Find the perfect heater to add to your collection with our best pistol reviews, buyer's guides and videos from 2020.

Unless you’re cloistered in some far off monastery, you’ve probably caught wind about how hot the gun market has been. Record-breaking is an understatement, as Americans of all stripes have armed up over the past year and continue to do so. A mixture of global and domestic strife has proven a sobering tonic to the realities of the world. In particular, no one is coming to save you. Your personal safety is in your own hands.

Given this stark truth, it’s of little surprise handguns—semi-automatic pistols especially—have lead the way in gun sales. Which, if you’ve been shopping around for a new heater, has caused problems. Most of the year, they’ve been as scarce as well-watered lawns in Albuquerque. In turn, if you're girding the proverbial loin to join the firearms commerce fray, you’d better have a solid idea about the gun you’re going to shell out hard-earned money over. At present, there aren’t many second chances.

That said, we’re here to shed some light. We’ve gathered the best semi-auto pistol reviews, buyer's guides and videos from the past year to help you get a handle on what in the market. Be it a covert concealed carry piece, an overpowering home-defense option or an irresistible range toy, you’ll draw a bead on your next pistol.
