The Affordable Safari; Your African Dream Hunt, Part II

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 16:24

This hunt was going to be from the Land Cruiser since there was no cover to even consider a stalk and the springbok was covering hundreds of yards each time we tried to get near it. After what seemed like an hour, Dolf decided it was time for me to use some of that ammunition.

Field Test: Easton Taper T64 Full Metal Jacket Arrows

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 15:04

Few arrows have won the hearts and minds of bowhunters like Easton’s Full Metal Jacket line. Some say it’s the branding. Others note the shaft’s racy look. Not me. I credit Easton innovation.

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 14:54

I had an opportunity to go back East this spring and chase the larger and more popular Eastern Turkey. I found myself on an Indiana family farm in late April. The Indiana turkey season opens up much later than most midwestern states.

Leupold SX-5 Santiam HD 27-55x80mm Angled Spotting Scope Full Review

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 13:42

When hunting in the western states, the terrain is vast, open and hard to reach. Because of this, optics are an extremely important asset. To be more specific, good optics are important. In order to see bighorn sheep up in the deepest cirques behind the highest peaks, or mule deer feeding out of the dark timber across the canyon, a hunter needs an optic that will provide superior edge to edge clarity, light transmission and resolution to help them claim success in the field. This is where the Leupold SX-5 Santiam HD came into play!

Simple Gourmet: Turkey Schnitzel

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 13:41

Turkey seasons are kicking off in many states this month. It's funny that some people see turkey as the last hunt of the season while others consider it the first hunt of the year. Whichever camp you fall into, this simple turkey schnitzel is a good way to eat some of that "thunder chicken" breast.

Aloha to Freedom: Hawaii Lawmakers Push Severe Ammo Restrictions

NRA-ILA News - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 13:08
In the last year, gun owners across the U.S. have watched in horror as California has rolled out its byzantine and unworkable ammunition restrictions. Since July 1, 2019, gun owners in the Golden State have been required to undergo a background check each time they purchase ammunition. The program has been a disaster. In December, the Sacramento Bee reported that tens of thousands of law-abiding Californians have been improperly denied ammunition purchases under the program, while only 101 were prohibited persons who were rejected. According to the report, “[b]etween July 1 and November, nearly one in every five ammunition purchases was rejected by the California Department of Justice.”

Politifact Gets is Wrong Again and Again on So-called “Universal” Background Checks

NRA-ILA News - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 12:59
The so-called “fact-checkers” at Politifact (a project of the Poynter Institute) continue to provide cover for one of the gun control effort’s most ridiculous talking points. These self-appointed arbiters of reality would have you believe that it is “True” when anti-gun advocates and politicians claim that the overwhelming majority of Americans support the criminalization of private firearms transfers - often sold to the public as “universal background checks.” In order to support their incorrect conclusion, these dubious truth seekers systematically avoid the best data on the subject - actual election results in states where this policy has been on the ballot.

Bloomberg’s Debate Bloopers

NRA-ILA News - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 12:56
Joe Biden isn’t the only presidential candidate having uncomfortable verbal lapses. One of the more telling moments of the tenth Democratic presidential primary debate on February 25th occurred when former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg put his mouth where his money is, blurting out that in 2018, he had “bought” Democrats their majority in the House of Representatives.

Bloomberg Pays for the Same Anti-Gun Article (on Free Data) Twice

NRA-ILA News - Sun, 03/01/2020 - 12:51
Francis Wilkinson at Bloomberg Opinion took a brief analysis published by The Trace, juiced it up with some more direct “guns are bad” language, added a lengthy quote from yet another Bloomberg personality, and repackaged it as an op-ed. Does Bloomberg know he’s paying for the same article twice?

Field Test: Badlands Vario System

During my treks across the West, I’ve tested more backpacks than Justin Bieber has hair gels. Why? Simple, a good pack can make the difference between an enjoyable hunt and a miserable one, especially once the game is put down.

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 02/29/2020 - 23:05

It has been 65 years since the Bodyguard was introduced. The fact that it is still in production is a credit to a design that has proven timeless. I have always had an affinity for the little J-frames and the 638 has found a home in my daily lifestyle.

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 02/29/2020 - 20:42

When the Mauser M18 rifle was first introduced last year, reactions were predictably split. Some hunters immediately rushed out to buy one while some of the more stodgy types among us declared, “That’s not a Mauser – it’s a push feed!”
