Combat Handguns - July / August 2022

America! The greatest country on earth. Period. This July 4th we’ll be celebrating America’s 246th birthday with fireworks, BBQs, and gatherings of friends and family to celebrate America the beautiful. And what can be more American than guns and our Second Amendment rights?

We’ve got plenty of those in store for our  July/August issue of Combat Handguns. Kicking things off on the cover is Zev Technologies’ OZ9 Elite. If you know anything about Zev, then you know the OZ isn’t simply some sort of Glock clone. Arguably, Zev’s guns are even more “perfect” in so many ways.

More perfection is coming at you hot with Colt’s reintroduction of the 3-inch-barreled Python. You won’t want to miss Mike Detty’s take on that classic wheelgun.

Also in this issue, sharpshooter Martin Topper discusses how when it comes to self-defense, there’s more to punching paper targets than meets the eye; resident gunslinger Garrett Lucas makes two modern-day takes on John Moses Browning Hi-Powers duke it out on the range, and Karen Hunter sits down with tried-and-true trainer Clint Achziger for a peek into his gear selection.

As you’ll see from the short list below, we’ve got plenty more firepower in store. So what are you waiting for? Pick up your copy today!
