Ballistic - Feb. / March 2023

The future of firepower is now!

The cover of our February/March 2023 issue of Ballistic highlights the future of firearms with the 15-years-in-the-making Magpul/Zev foldaway FDP-9 and the something-outta-Demolition Man Coil Accelerator CA-09. The first is an inconspicuous black box that turns into a fighting firearm with a 9mm payload of 17+1 rounds in seconds flat. The other doesn’t rely on gunpowder or compressed air; it uses magnets to sling 275-grain metal discs at a rate of about 10 rounds per second. How’s that for futuristic?

With the future being covered, the question becomes what’s going on right now? Straight out of Athlon Outdoors’ 2022 Rendezvous, Kenzie Fitzpatrick rocks out with the competition-ready SAR USA K-12 Sport X, and we dig deeper at Walther’s attempt at redefining the .22 WMR pistol with its new WMP. More Rondy content includes reviews on Sightmark’s Wraith 4K Mini, 5.11 Tactical’s newest line of packs and QuietKat’s Warrior E-Bike. Plus, Jay Langston hits the spring woods with Trijicon in style with J.P. Sauer & Sohn’s pistol-gripped SL5.

In the fun zone with have killer content on real ninjas, best of the bag wines, a roundtable discussion with Mr. Clean (guns) and “McNasty, plus 32 pages of Skillset awesomeness including… tactical yo-yos. Say what?
