When the dust settled from the highly competitive contract there were only two firearms makers left; Glock and Sig Sauer. During the 2017 Shot Show it was announced albeit a surprise to the competitors that Glock had been dropped like Beretta, and FN leaving only Sig Sauer Standing.
To celebrate Sig Sauer broke out the bubbly and passed flutes around for a celebratory toast to those present. Breaking the 30 year reign of Beretta and it’s 9mm platform made people cheer out loud, especially service members like this one who had a strong distaste for the aging model.
Most of the current military and Iraq / Afghanistan veterans I’ve talked to have regarded the Army’s decision as legit and definitely couldn’t come too soon. Some of us old timers never dropped the 1911 as a mission pistol and some of the branches are bringing it back again.
“By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we have optimized private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines, and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters,” Army Acquisition Executive Steffanie Easter said said in a press release.
In their statements, Army and Sig officials didn’t specify what caliber the new Sig Sauer pistol will be.
Sig touts the P320 model product as “modular” and “adaptable,” with interchangeable grips, multiple sizes and calibers that can be converted between 9mm, .357SIG and .40S&W. “From calibers, to pistol size, to the grip fit best suited for the shooter, the P320 is the most adaptable pistol available today,” the company says in promotional materials.

For over 90+ years, LOWA BOOTS have been the finest outdoor boots in the world for hunters, climbers, mountaineers, hikers,etc.. Their attention to detail has earned a reputation for building the world’s most comfortable and durable boots since 1923.
The Gun Room Inc. is known for hunting and fine firearms and carries Lowa boots for edging those mountains and hills where some of the toughest hunts happen. When you are working thru some knock down or a cut unit you know that the wrong boot means swollen ankles and feet and usually buying another pair of boots after an unsuccessful hunt.
This writer has been using the same pair of Lowa boots himself for about a decade now and can’t even fathom how he did it without them. After getting out of the military, I thought that the best boot for these missions was the tried and true paratrooper boot, until a high country big game hunt with a friend wearing Lowa boots that is. Lets just say all of the smack talking about him not serving and blah blah blah this and that banter meant I ate crow for supper that night. One of the toughest parts of the hunt was a very high and steep ridge where you had to cut every step of the way with your boots side hilling to a ledge where we could take a break and glass for the meal of the day. Suffice it to say my military tough boots came apart and I had to go back empty-handed, sore, cold and wet.
Fast forward a decade and I still have my first pair of Lowa Boots for my big game hunts and now I also have the tactical boots Lowa makes for my training evolutions. The foot wear kings at Lowa have made shoes and boots for just about any activity outdoors and have done it better than everyone else. Once you try Lowa Boots you’ll never look back unless you need to find your friend.
Lowa Boots are in stock for men and women at The Gun Room Inc. on SE Foster Rd. in Portland Oregon.
Give them a call (503)777-3931 or better yet stop by and see their Lowa Boots for yourself.

When you hear the word “pepper box” you typically think of something that grinds pepper corns for your fine dining experience. When The Gun Room Inc. says “pepper box” we are talking about the precursor to the modern revolver. When the pepper box first came out it gave an instant tactical advantage over the single shot firearms that were in use at the time. In fact it could be said the pepper box was the first tactical pistol ever in that it could shoot rounds just as fast as you could cock it and pull the trigger.
The pepper box resembles the famous gatling gun that would come out later with it’s multi-barreled design and it’s ability to shed lead.
The Gun Room Inc. is fortunate to know some of the best collectors on the planet and it’s this relationship with their customers that brings in some of the most collectible firearms you’ve never heard of. Enter the Blissett Pepper Box!
This pistol is one of the finest we’ve seen at any auction anywhere period.
Isaac and John Blissett were gun makers, jewelers, and engravers for the Crown and the Duke of Sussex until around 1850.
When it comes to hunting and bushcraft nothing beats a good knife, and not having one can mean the difference between a good time and a miserable one.
At The Gun Room Inc. we have a few of the favorites but we also have a few of the best. Take Alan Warren’s fine custom knives for example.
Yes you’ve probably dreamed of owning one if you’re into edged instruments of art. Some people call Alan’s knives tools, others call them weapons, here at The Gun Room Inc. we call them art.
If you’re in the know and have been following Alan’s endeavors in magazines or in the world wide web of who’s it-what’s it then you know Alan Warren knives are very hard to get. Alan takes great pride in his knives and all of them are one of a kind that’s made for work.
Some people put them in a display case, other people like this writer use them in the field and pass them on to our sons and daughters.
If you are a big game hunter then you know the axiom of carrying several knives to get the dirty work finished. The other high quality knives lose their edge before the work is done, on an elk for example, so you use a second or even a third to finish it up. People who actually use their Alan Warren knives only use the one, the line between art and science has been merged into the pinnacle of heat treatment hardness VS toughness VS form and function. If you have waited a year or more to get an Alan Warren knife and got your hopes real high, you weren’t disappointed. Never a complaint other than waiting for Alan to catch up with orders. He doesn’t rush he takes his time and turns out the best in blades period.
I would say check out his work at a show, but he doesn’t go to any. Alan doesn’t advertise, he just makes fine knives for a lucky few.
At The Gun Room Inc. we are lucky enough to have an extensive collection of Alan Warren Knives in stock and on display. Give us a call at (503)777-3931 or better yet come on down to the shop on the corner of 56th and Foster Rd. and see them for yourself!
