Combat Handguns July/August 2020

(Nashville, Tenn.)

As most Americans found themselves quarantined or sheltering in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus the Combat Handguns team was hard at work putting the final touches on the July/August issue. Produced in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this issue is bringing you some of the most in-depth reviews of the SIG Sauer P320, Springfield XD-M, and Taurus TX22.

With the halfway point of 2020 fast approaching, we wanted to highlight the best new full-sized pistols and revolvers that are sure to be “best of the year” contenders for 2020. Since you can’t have burgers without fries (right?) we’re highlighting all of the latest loads to handle all of your handgunning needs. Other notable editorials in the issue include a chance to WIN a SAR USA K-12 Sport 9mm, a battle royale of the newest .22 pistols, five DIY upgrades for a S&W Shield, training tips from the red-dot Jedi, a guide to handloading 10mms, and a Nighthawk Custom Colt .45 ACP makeover.

With that said, we at Athlon Outdoors hope that your family survives the current climate unscathed, or is in the process of recovering. We value each and every one of our readers, so know this: We’re all in this together. Look around and you’ll find people supporting first responders and health care workers, delivering food to the elderly, and checking in on family members. It might seem like a dire moment, but we Americans always pull through—because we pull together. Stay safe, and thank you for your support.
