LWRC International SMG 45 with SB Tactical Brace U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- SHOT Show is always a blur.  You shake hands with around a thousand people, shoot a couple of dozen guns for a few seconds apiece and see so many more that they tend to blur together.  When it's all over, I get to sift through my collections of pictures, business cards, and my notes to see what stands out most in my memory.  One gun made available to my editors and I at range day was the LWRC SMG 45.  It was a remarkabl...

The history of the first Russian SMG – Degtyaryov PPD-34/38/40

Everyone knows about the Soviet “burp gun” – PPSh-41. But its predecessor, PPD 34, is much less known, both in Russia and internationally.
