Hunter sitting on Plano 1812 Hunting Stool shooting a shotgun

Dove hunting isn’t complicated, so don’t make it that way!

Those who enjoy a hunting lifestyle are fortunate. Because hunting isn’t always easy—especially for the millions of Americans looking to get into the sport. Competition for hunting ground, a significant financial investment in gear, and time spent on hunter education, scouting, and shooting practice are just a few of the barriers to hunting participation. Thankfully, some types of hunting (Doves) are simpler than others.

MA AG Healy Attacks Gun Owners Again; Confuses Assault Weapon Definition

Adding to the insult, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey has confused the issue and offered little guidance that help residents sort out which firearms have been banned and which are legal. Recently, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey added to the confusion caused by her decision to unilaterally ban common semi-automatic firearms by releasing a list of “Guns That Are Not Assault Weapons.”

Firearms and Suicide Prevention

With suicide accounting for nearly two-thirds of all firearm fatalities annually, the topic of suicide prevention deserves our attention. In recent years, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has worked with the Veterans Administration, the State of Utah, and mental health agencies to help educate gun owners and the public on how to keep firearms safely out of reach of those who, during a period of despair, might decide to do themselves harm.

I Trust My Life to Taurus

December 6, 2012, I left the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin after a productive meeting with clients. The hour was late—about 11:30 p.m. Walking to my Jeep Patriot, I noticed an odd sound as I walked to the driver-side door. My feet were crunching on the pavement, yet there was no snow or ice to be found. It looked like there was a great deal of glass on the ground, and there was—from my front windows!

Review: Streamlight TLR-1 HL Weaponlight

When asked, I emphasize that one of the most essential items in your duty load out, or everyday carry gear, is a strong, bright light. However, not just any light will do. When selecting a weaponlight, you’ll want a durable, high-lumen, weapon-mounted light to illuminate your path, make threat evaluation easier, and aid in target discrimination.

NRA: 5 Things Hillary Says She Will Do To Your Rights If She Wins

In June 2000, Hillary Clinton endorsed a bill introduced by U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., that would have required anyone who owns a handgun to be licensed and to have their name placed in a national database. Clinton said, “I stand in support of this common-sense legislation to license everyone who wishes to purchase a gun. I also believe that every new handgun sale or transfer should be registered in a national registry, such as Chuck is proposing.”

Free From Hornady Ammunition

As much as you would like to think that meant free ammunition from Hornady, I am sorry to say that is not the case, but it is almost as good. While the ammo may not be free, Hornady’s new ballistic calculator is free. And, with more shots on target you’ll be hitting more targets with less ammunition, so it’s as close to free ammunition as you’re likely to get.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson talking at press conference

150+ Shootings in 15 Days — Gun Control or Gun Offender Control?

With a headline like this, it would normally be followed by some off-balanced politician’s claim that we need more gun control. On occasion, the politician would trot out the Chief of Police or Sheriff to back up the point. The numbers could point to a handful of cities, but of course we are talking about the king of gun crime, Chicago. However, this time the message is not the anti-gun rhetoric we have become accustomed to.
