Combat Handguns - Nov. / Dec. 2023

As the sizzling summer starts to wind down, CH content creators are putting on the afterburners. We’re covering the gamut of firepower for everyday concealed carry, LE duty, sporting purposes, and everything in between. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at this issue's two-hit combo cover.

First, we’re hitting you with the Springfield Echelon series 9mm duty pistol and following it up with FN America’s Reflex 9mm. This duo represents true winners from two of America’s most trusted and relied-upon makers. Garrett Lucas gives you a full evaluation on both and asks… What’s not to love?

Also in this issue, Gary Paul Johnston’s “Guns With A Past” on the Medusa sixshooter, a “Tale Of The Tape” duel between a classic S&W and Kimber’s newest K6xs, Joshua Hood’s five Canik SFx Rival DIY upgrades, and Frank Melloni’s review of Korth’s new 8-shot NXS.
