Review: Ruger Rimfire Precision Rifle

Among the most exciting rifles to come down the pike this year is the Ruger Rimfire Precision Rifle. This is a bolt-action rimfire rifle chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge. The rifle is based on the full-size Ruger Precision rifle. The rifle would make a great understudy for the .308 rifle, but it is also a fine choice for anyone interested in using an accurate rifle for recreational shooting or small game hunting.

Trunk Guns

There is much debate over what makes the best trunk gun so to understand where the concept of a trunk gun came from, let’s go back a few years. Traditionally, farmers and ranchers had a ranch rifle hanging in the back of the pickup truck. The role of the rifle was to enable the easy elimination of varmints or to put down injured horses or livestock. Nowadays, many farmers and ranchers still keep a durable rifle hung in the window or stashed behind the seat for the same reason.
