Chad interviews Rob Romero after winning the 2010 FNH USA Midwest 3-Gun Shoot-Off

3-Gun Nation Update from SHOT Show

We caught up with Pete Brown and Chad Adams from 3-Gun Nation at the 2011 SHOT Show and had the chance to discuss the history of the 3-Gun Nation and gain an insight into some of the events they’ve got going on. The 2010 season is finished up and they are getting ready to kick off the 2011 season at Superstition Mountain 3-Gun match this March.

Mossberg Tactical .22

Mossberg recently released their entry into the rimfire AR-15 style rifle they’ve dubbed the Tactical .22. When creating their new rifle, Mossberg saw no reason to reinvent the wheel. They essentially put a 702 Plinkster inside an AR-15 style body. The Tactical .22 utilizes standard Plinkster magazines housed inside an AR style magazine body. Naturally it also has the Plinkster’s well-known accuracy and reliability.

SIG SAUER’s SIG716 7.62×51 NATO

The SIG 556 Russian wasn’t the only new exciting rifle unveiled by Sig Sauer at the 2011 SHOT Show: The new SIG716 rifle chambered in 7.62 NATO was on display at their booth at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. Four different models were shown; a standard carbine model with a 14.5″ barrel, a 16″ patrol version, a longer and heavier precision marksman model, and a NFA regulated SBR model for CQB with a 12.5″ barrel. All of the models accept standard 7.62×51 MagPul PMAGs and are shipped with these direct from the factory.

At the SHOT Show we got to handle the prototype of Kel-Tec’s RMR-30 carbine rifle. Based off of the enormously popular PMR-30, the RMR-30 is designed to take full advantage of the .22 magnum cartridge with a longer barrel on a reliable semiautomatic platform. The model we handled had a full length Picatinny rail with MagPul flip up sights.

SIG SAUER came clean with the 556 and owned up to its Kalishnakov roots with their new 556R. The 556 rifle has always had an AK-style action, which contributes greatly to the reliability of Sig’s rifle platform, but now Sig has released a 7.62×39 caliber version that is compatible with standard AK-47 magazines.

California Court Rules Ammunition Ban AB962 Unconstitutional

The 2011 Ruling from the California Court, in a dramatic ruling, gave gun owners a win in a National Rifle Association / California Rifle and Pistol (CRPA) Foundation lawsuit. Fresno Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Hamilton ruled that AB 962— the hotly contested statute that would have banned mail order ammunition sales and required all purchases of so called “handgun ammunition” to be registered—was unconstitutionally vague on its face.
