ARTV Preview: CrossBreed Holsters, Hornady Sub-Sonic Ammo And Sharps Carbine

posted on August 24, 2021

Today, there are more handgun carry permits held by American citizens than ever before, and with that comes the demand for concealed-carry holsters. CrossBreed Holsters offers several models and options of leather, Kydex and combination holsters for just such needs, crafted to fit a wide variety of popular handgun models. This week, we go behind the scenes at CrossBreed's facility in Springfield, Mo., to see just how it makes the various holsters.

For this week's "Rifleman Review," we take a look not at a firearm, but a line of ammunition. Hornady offers an entire line of ammunition, in several different calibers, specifically developed and loaded for suppressor use.

For this week's "I Have This Old Gun," we take a look back at the history of one of the most used and famous carbines used during the Union cavalry during Civil War, the Sharps carbine, a handy falling-block, breech-loading carbine that lived on after the war into the metallic cartridge era at the end of the 19th century.
