Exclusive tour of the Turkish powerhouse that’s ready to roll in America! Checking Tollerences The country of Turkey has long been known for its firearms manufacturing. Mostly for some of its shotguns, particularly those that involved woodwork. Pistols and other guns have come in over the years with varying quality. For the most part they were best known for being “okay” guns at a reasonable price. In the last year, two guns imported from Sarslimaz have passed through my hands. The K2 .45 was a huge surprise and remains one of my favorite pistols to shoot. I also tested an ST10 that exhibited excellent workmanship, accuracy and reliability. Both were well made and offered at affordable prices. A far cry from guns that are “cheap” and just “okay,” they were clearly well designed and manufactured. 


Turkish guns have been long known for being built in what amounts to a garage, but that was certainly not the case here. Thanks to Keith at EAA and the owners of Sarslimaz, a trip to the factory was arranged to observe why firsthand.

EAA is proud to introduce a new holster for the Windicator 2" revolver developed by Galco GunLeather.

The new Wraith™ holster offers an exceptional combination of high performance, comfort and affordability. The Wraith’s thumb break retention strap allows a very fast draw while the reinforced mouth allows an easy one-handed return to the holster. A sturdy belt channel gives the Wraith a mild butt-forward cant for easy concealment and a fast, smooth draw. Constructed of Premium Center Cut Steerhide™, the Wraith fits belts up to 1 3/4". Made for the 2" Windicator revolver, the Wraith is currently available in right hand design in black finish. Part of Galco's Carry Lite™ line of holsters, the new Wraith™ offers an exceptional combination of high performance, comfort and affordability. Available exclusively through European American Armory at eaacorp.com or 321-639-4842.

With the holidays right around the corner, people are still scrambling to find that perfect gift.


It is tough to find gifts that are both needed and wanted, and will make the recipient light up when they unwrap that gift. Why not try a Tanfoglio Witness pistol from EAA Corp? The Witness is a truly affordable, quality semi-automatic pistol that will surely put a smile on the face of the person that receives one as a gift! The Witness is a remarkably accurate pistol that can be used both for target shooting or defense. Did you know that the World Shoot Champ, Eric Grauffel, shoots Tanfoglio pistols? The Witness started out as a copy of the world famous CZ-75; it now has a reputation of being a great all around pistol. The Witness line of semi-automatic pistols are available in multiple calibers; 9mm, .38 Super Auto, .40 S&W, .10mm and .45ACP. The Witness line also comes in steel or polymer, small frame or large, and competition-ready. Accessories for the Witness line are available for ordering both online, or can be ordered by calling customer service at EAA Corp. at 800-536-4442.
The other great feature available in the Witness line is the ability to purchase a caliber conversion kit for your existing pistol. This gives you the ability, once the kit is fitted to the gun, to change slides, change the magazine, and end up with two guns in one! For instance, if your gun is chambered in .45ACP, you can change to a .22 conversion kit for plinking or target shooting. Saves on ammo costs too! Also saves you from having to buy a whole new pistol in a new caliber. Conversion kits start at $234 for the .22 kit, and $245 for all other calibers. So consider a Witness pistol for that someone special this holiday season. Remember, a Witness pistol and conversion kit under the tree - an incredible gift. The look on their face when they unwrap it - priceless! EAA Corp. / USSGcarries a full line of handguns and long guns for all of the gun enthusiasts in your life.

You can always visit EAA Corporation on the web at http://www.eaacorp.com.

As we are well into the holiday season, and families are coming together (complete with young children!), we as responsible gun owners have an obligation to keep everyone safe. Remember when you were a kid, and Christmas was near? You, like many kids, went on an adventure hunt to find gifts that your parents had hidden from you. In the houses of gun owners, this could be an adventure that has a very bad outcome; that is if you are not responsible about proper storage of your firearms.

All of the folks at EAA Corp want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you have a chance to enjoy family, friends, and some turkey!

A little history on the origins of Thanksgiving in America:

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. Pilgrims held their second Thanksgiving celebration in 1623 to mark the end of a long drought that had threatened the year’s harvest and prompted Governor Bradford to call for a religious fast. Days of fasting and thanksgiving on an annual or occasional basis became common practice in other New England settlements as well.

During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress designated one or more days of thanksgiving a year, and in 1789 George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation by the national government of the United States;  in it,  he called upon Americans to express their gratitude for the happy conclusion to the country’s war of independence and the successful ratification of the U.S. Constitution. His successors John Adams and James Madison also designated days of thanks during their presidencies.

For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states.  It wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

In many American households, the Thanksgiving celebration has lost much of its original religious significance; instead, it now centers on cooking and sharing a bountiful meal with family and friends. Turkey, a Thanksgiving staple so ubiquitous it has become all but synonymous with the holiday, may or may not have been on offer when the Pilgrims hosted the inaugural feast in 1621. (Lobster, seal and swans were on the Pilgrims' menu.)
