Full report would take more time than I have, so I will start with a few photos. Chris Cheng with IWI Tavor and Primary Arms light and soon to be released red dot. The same rifle with a rather nice … Continue reading
I recently mentioned having a black Tavor on hand. It’s now up for an auction. Get your own!
Savage Lady Hunter with 2.5-10x Nightforce scope. The rifle is very light, and its hardwood stock has greater than usual comb height.
Sergeant Hartman: What’s this weapon’s name, Private Pyle? Private Pyle: Sir, the Private’s weapon’s name is Charlene, sir! My suggestion was “Judith” after another lethal Israeli. Whatever the name, this rose smells equally sweet to my friend Charles. He’s been … Continue reading
Does your hat brim keep your glasses clear enough to see? Is your scope waterproof and rust-resistant enough to function the day after the rain? Can you move with full loadout while soaked? Do your soles provide a sure footing? … Continue reading
Melissa Gilliland keeps up her side of the family standards by being a competitive shooter in her own right. The rifle is an Asbury Precision Ordnance ASW with 3-15x Light Tactical by Premier Reticles. I’ve seen her kick ass with … Continue reading
The term “final protective fire” means the highest priority is given to this request due to the danger of a position being overrun. For the guy in the trenches, that means firing as fast as possible to break up a … Continue reading
So our foes succeeded in making rifle ammunition too rare to use for recreational shooting. Most people are now shooting only to zero their new guns, to function test and to get familiar with the manual of arms. The rest … Continue reading
Should a rifle designed for women be more than the same action in a plastic pink stock? Savage obviously thinks so. Quality hardwood stock, Accu-trigger and sporter profile barrel added up to a very handy and well balanced rifle. In … Continue reading
In Tennessee, openly carried pistols and obvious long gun cases don’t get much attention. In other states, discretion is a good idea because of government agents and other thieves. Some people carry pistols in diaper bags on the assumption that … Continue reading
Just because 9mm carbines are girly, doesn’t mean that smaller bores should be neglected. Sarah gets long with the RRA .223 for southpaws just fine. Range report in a few. Other trivia: you can see a Sykes-Fairburn dagger and clips … Continue reading
Since their web site is still in development, I’ll post the two sides of their SHOT show handout. These should start shipping by Spring. You can see their Facebook page for now.
Lucky Gunner just posted an extremely informative study. I have been very impressed with one of the brands they used, American Eagle (the target above was fired at 50 yards from a 20″ AR).
458SOCOM rifles use the standard .223 magazines which hold 10 rounds of the larger ammunition. Does this mean that 10-round .458 magazines would become very popular should the proposed ban go into effect? Their ability to hold 30 .223Rem cartridges … Continue reading
The boring reliability is why an SU16 is my go-to rifle.
This video (made by Buddy Singleton) shows the 223 production line at SBR.
Every place I’ve checked is out of .223 ball ammunition. If you have a limited supply of your go-to ammo but still need regular practice, look into frangibles loaded by SBR. In my experience, they work well in AR15 and … Continue reading
JP Enterprises makes a unique AR variation, SCR-11. The receiver is fully enclosed in the back, making it comfortable to shoot suppressed. Folding left-hand charging handle keeps all the gas inside the receiver. The fit and finish are superb, triggers … Continue reading
