Combat Handguns - July/August 2021

The Combat Handgun’s editorial team always aims to cover the gamut of well-rounded content for every issue we put out. The July/August issue is no exception and happens to be extra heavy in the CCW department… as in the smaller and more concealable, the better. Just take a look at the “more rounds on board,” micro-compact S&W Shield Plus that’s gracing the cover. Author Mike Detty gives an in-depth look at how accurate the new 9mm is and explains why it is, without question, going to give the Hellcats of the world a run for their money.

Also in this issue, author Richard Johnson proves slim still means big time with Ed Brown’s refined and 9mm-optimized EVO CC09 Lightweight 1911, we share the late great Denis Prisbrey’s take on a .308-chambered SA58 FAL pistol from DS Arms, and contributor Martin Topper rounds up all the noteworthy 2021 handgun ammo and gives his recommendations for the must-have Mouse Guns for all of you .22 LR fans.
