Gear Review: Burris 3-12x32mm Handgun Scope

Sat, 11/03/2018 - 20:36

On a recent South Texas hunt with the Nosler M48 Handgun, the Burris 3-12 let me see well enough to shoot right up to dark and then several minutes beyond. It took some good bouncing around, in hunting blinds and vehicles, and held zero.

The View’s Meghan McCain Grills Georgia Gubernatorial Candidate on Confiscation

Thu, 11/01/2018 - 09:15

“It is possible to believe in responsible gun ownership and to believe that there should be regulations on that,” Abrams said. “Antonin Scalia said that, and we have to believe as a nation, that when our communities are vulnerable, when you can’t go into a synagogue or a church or a school without fear for your life, there is something wrong with our system of gun ownership.”

Thu, 11/01/2018 - 08:44

I had the chance to try out the on several hunts this summer and fall in Alaska. The hunts were in a remote part of the state where getting dry wasn’t something you could count on. There is little to start a fire with and the sun shines sporadically at best. The old saying, “It’s […]

FedEx Severs Relationship with NRA, Says Decision Is Not Politically Motivated

Wed, 10/31/2018 - 16:45

International shipping giant Fed-Ex announced yesterday their decision to sever ties with the National Rifle Association, according to Reuters. But the move has nothing to do with the recent mass murder in a Pittsburg synagogue, the company says. Instead, it claims that business members of the NRA did not bring in enough shipping volume to warrant the discount program it offered to the pro-gun group.

A Special Message from Wayne LaPierre and Chris W. Cox

Wed, 10/31/2018 - 06:00

Our work isn’t just in races for U.S. Congress. As critically important as maintaining pro-gun majorities in the U.S. Senate and House is, every level of government is being targeted by our opponents. In every governor’s race and also in state legislative races, we need pro-gun candidates to protect our freedom for future generations.

Scottish Benchrest Shooter Posts Record-Breaking 3-Inch 1000-Yard Group with Factory Savage Rifle

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 12:41

As gun manufacturers crank out higher quality production rifles, custom barreled actions are becoming less necessary for shooting crazy-small groups. It’s tough to beat a skilled gunsmith, but shooters are realizing that a factory piece can be nearly as accurate and just as much fun to shoot. That trend was on full display earlier this month when Scottish benchrest shooter David Sharp (yes, his real name) posted a 3.090-inch 1000-yard group using a Savage Model 12 F-TR barreled action chambered in .308 WIN.
