Combat Handguns, Summer Heat

(Nashville, Tenn.)

With warmer months underway, it’s only right that we help turn up the heat with the July/August 2019 issue of Combat Handguns!

We packed this issue with some scorching-hot reviews of the new optics-ready CZ P-10 F, with 19+1 rounds of 9mm ammo on tap; the longer and sleeker Wilson EDC X9L; and Doug Koenig’s custom-grade Ruger SR1911. We also put two customized Glock 19s from Grey Ghost Precision and Zev Technologies in a head-to-head face-off. Hot enough for ya?

It’s not easy dealing with the heat, so to cool things down, we took a trip to Idaho and met up with the Alien Gear Holsters team for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at their shop, their products and what’s next for one of the industry’s leading manufacturers.

We also caught up with Pat McNamara and picked his brain for tips on how to stay cool in low-light defensive situations. And since no issue of Combat Handguns is complete without a chance to win some heat, we’re giving away a Taurus TX22 and a CrossBreed rig. Good luck! You’ll have to pick up a copy of the magazine to learn more.
