IMHO Gun Tests is the best "Consumer Report" style magazine in circulation for firearms
What else is there? I have read many reviews from the other gun rags, IE: G&A, ST, Guns etc where a new product was tested and all aspects of the Gun was exemplary, beyond reproach, sub MOA accuracy, and 100% reliable and you must stop all you are doing and buy it now.
I have rarely seen a negative article about a product that accepts advertising dollars,
Having said that and empirically speaking, what I have seen at the range does not always reflects what these gunwriters are telling you.
At least with Gun Tests you learn that not all firearms are perfect. Yes there may be inconsistencies, but is there another honest or at least halfway honest publication out there?
