Preparedness has become mainstream as more and more people are realizing that it truly does pay off to be prepared for possible emergencies. Mossberg has recently stepped up to answer the demand for survival kits and packaged their enormously popular Model 500 pump action shotgun into a variety of kits, calling it the “Just In Case” or “JIC”.
After his stunning elimination from the History Channel’s new reality show “Top Shot” we managed to track down Blake Miguez to talk a bit about his background in the shooting sports and his appearance on Top Shot. To say that Blake is a busy guy would be an understatement: in addition to competing regularly across the nation and around the world, Blake works as a corporate attorney and helps to run his father’s businesses. Still, he managed to find time to talk to us over the phone about his experience.
Let us talk about desiccants for a minute. A desiccant is a hygroscopic substance that induces or sustains a state of dryness (desiccation) in its local vicinity in a moderately well-sealed container. Simply said, it removes moisture from the air and traps it, keeping that moisture away from anything else in that container. This makes them fantastic for preventing rust on stored firearms.
She was the only woman on the History Channel’s reality TV show “Top Shot” but she showed that she could easily keep up with the boys. In the most recent episode that aired Sunday night we watched as Tara Poremba unfortunately had to leave the show early to attend to a family emergency.
Finding a good fitting stock on a shotgun or rifle isn’t always an easy task. For shotguns, a good fitting stock allows you to quickly mount the firearm so that the bead is properly aligned while your cheek rests firmly against the stock. On a rifle with a scope, the length of pull is even more important because the optics need to be brought up properly aligned, but also within eye relief with good cheek weld.
Following up on our interview with Kelly Bachand, we tracked down Brad Engmann and asked him if he could sit down and talk with us
Cheaper Than Dirt! announced Wednesday that they have begun selling firearms online in addition to their broad selection of ammunition and firearms accessories. The move follows two years of rapid growth for the Fort Worth based company. Robust sales of ammunition and firearms accessories in 2008, 2009, and the first part of 2010 have prompted the company to expand into pistol, rifle, and shotgun sales.
Kelly Bachand is young, still in his early 20s, but he’s made quite a name for himself as a long range rifle shooter.
There are a number of great shotguns available and each has its own benefits. One of the main tactical advantages of the Mossberg 500 shotgun is the position of the shell lifter. When considering a shotgun for home defense, the position of the shell lifter can make a big difference in your ability to perform a tactical reload if necessary.
John Moses Browning’s iconic 1911 pistol is one of the most well known and widely recognized handguns ever produced. It served in the US Military for well over 70 years, and many insist that it is still a superior handgun even today.
Only after you have mastered your chosen rifle, and thoroughly ensured the reliability of your system, should you begin to worry about your defensive ammunition selection. Most of us would be better off practicing with what we have at hand than worrying about what ammunition to use. You should know you (the shooter), your rifle, your ammunition and what it can accomplish before considering yourself prepared for the defensive use of your rifle.
It’s hard to miss his big cowboy hat and wide grin. Denny Chapman is quite the character, and if you hadn’t heard of him before now, you’ve probably seen him on the new reality TV show “Top Shot” on the History Channel.
Denny was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his day to talk to us about his background in the shooting sports and how he came upon the cowboy mounted shooting sports.
For a new shooter, finding a gun that they like can be a daunting task. Many new shooters want the mythical “perfect gun,” one that carries 30 rounds of ammunition, is small, lightweight with very little recoil, and chambered in a caliber that can stop an attack with a single shot. Such a gun, to my knowledge, does not exist.
If you’ve been following the reality TV shot “Top Shot” on the History channel, you probably saw that Caleb Giddings was eliminated after going head to head against Adam Benson following a drama filled episode. Caleb was gracious enough to take a few minutes and talk to us about his experience and give us some insights into the show.
