I began this review by taking notes on the features of triggers I have written about in the past. I wanted to be certain I had a clear idea of what makes a good trigger and perhaps what makes a trigger good for the money, as well as trigger features that favor tactical or personal defense shooting. Being able to qualify claims for a fast lock time is more difficult than testing the trigger action and pull weight.
The M1 Carbine was the most produced American Infantry weapon of World War II. We built around 6.5 million of these tidy little rifles by the time the last shot was fired. At the apogee of production, we were producing 65,000 M1 Carbines a day. Truth be known, the Axis never had a chance.
The Beretta APX is Beretta’s entry into the polymer-frame striker-fired field, and they added a modular design for good measure. The APX is going against stiff competition. While Beretta has brand loyalty, the piece must stand on its own merit.
Living in modern society, we’ve lost the understanding that things such as warmth, food, and water are requirements that equate to life and death. Sure, we all know it in the back of minds, but that is the problem. It is in the back of our minds, so we fail to adequately prepare, because so many everyday necessities are normally easily obtained.
Saturday, September 23, is National Hunting and Fishing Day. Take a new shooter or angler afield and introduce them to the outdoors sports.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries, praised the U.S. Senate’s bipartisan reintroduction of S.733, the Sportsmen’s Act of 2017 and the quick action to favorably report it out of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
They say the true measure of whether a program is successful is when you look at it three or four years later. Is it still going strong? Did it meet its goals?
Every year, I reflect on what I have learned from the previous 12 months, looking at what was successful and what was not, determining where I can improve, and setting up a plan for doing more of what worked. Finally, 2013 is over, and we brave forward to 2014. Another year passed—another year of absolutely terrible outdoor pictures.
There is something calming and pleasantly rewarding about fishing, even when I do not catch anything. Fishing is fun, regardless of your age. Beginning fishing does not require a lot of skill, nor do you have to invest in a bunch of expensive equipment to get started.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. One out of every eight women who lives to be at least 85 years of age will develop breast cancer. Over two million women in the United States have been treated for, or are currently living with, breast cancer. However, there is some good news; in spite of all these discouraging statistics, breast cancer—if caught early—can be treated and many women today call themselves breast cancer survivors because of early detection. The other good news is there are organizations and activities with some traditional outdoor activities, such as fly-fishing, designed specifically for breast cancer patients.
