However, as the candidates position themselves for the upcoming elections, the battle lines are being drawn.
Fans of Final Approach and waterfowling enthusiasts have something to look forward this Summer with the addition of a trio of hard-hunting packs and bags to the lineup of innovative layout blinds, decoys and accessories.

The Washington Post recently awarded three Pinocchios to President Obama’s claim, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than to get his hands on a computer or even a book.” and called it an, “Exaggerated claim based in no real statistics, which does nothing but distract the public.” The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF), Larry Keane, also offered the following:
From the time I was 6 or 7 years old, I’ve carried a slingshot. Very quickly, I became not only proficient, but the bane of much of the small game available in and around my rural subdivision. With 3/8-inch ball bearing ammo, I could regularly bring home a rabbit or squirrel to be cleaned and eaten.
The ability to properly handle a firearm, drive a vehicle, or operate a machine must be learned. Complex motor skills are not innate in the human physiology. Therefore, handgun skills are perishable.

You’re sitting at work when all of the sudden one of your co-worker’s shouts with a terrible shriek, “Did you hear?” He can see the confused look on your face and explains, “The financial markets just collapsed and everyone’s running to the bank and ATMs.”
The facts are on our side! Not that politicians are always known for following the facts, nor are the anti gunners, but The Shooter’s Log has them compliments of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and now you do too.
Magnum Research (MRI) has always counted the BFR (Big Frame Revolver) series among its many success stories. It all began in 1999, when independent gunsmith/designer Jim Tertin, was approached by MRI to manufacture the new large caliber revolver for MRI. Tertin mastered
