Australian & New Zealand Handgun has finally come of age as we celebrate our 21st birthday! Believe it or not it was way back in 2003 we published the first edition of our popular annual magazine for dedicated small-arms enthusiasts on both sides of the Tasman. For our cover story this time, senior correspondent Rod Pascoe has road tested the ‘Big Five’ from Canik and discovered they offer something for everyone. Guns under review include the latest from the Beretta stable – the M94A pistol – and Geoff Smith enlisted the help of three Beretta enthusiasts who’ve given a resounding thumbs-up to what looks like ranking among the best handguns the Italian icon has ever produced. Elsewhere Thomas Tabor has run the numbers on a couple of interesting options in the shape of Smith & Wesson’s Model 1006 and Colt’s Delta Elite 10mm pistol while Daniel O’Dea has turned the spotlight on the Holosun red-dot sight and put the Mantis training aid through its paces. And talking of training, seasoned hand-gunner Dick Eussen has weighed in with plenty of tips on how to improve your performance including ways to perfect that pistol grip and what it takes to make yourself a better shot.
