SHOT 2014 — Beretta ARX-100 Sporting Rifle

At the 2014 SHOT Show Media Day, I got the opportunity to fire a few rounds through Beretta’s ARX-100, the civilian version of the ARX-160 rifle developed for the Italian military. At first glance, I thought it was just another black sporting rifle.

At the Range: A Non-Tactical Guy Goes Tactical, Part 4

I have now had my new Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) for almost one year. It has been a definite learning experience, and a great deal of fun.

For those who don’t know, a 3-gun contest uses an MSR, shotgun and pistol. It is also the fastest-growing shooting sports event and competition in the nation.

Schumer Wants to Ban 100-Round Clips — I Have to Agree…

Before you decide to tar-and-feather and run me out on a rail, please read the entire article…

Which Gas System is Best?

It is an old argument, however, we still field quite a few questions about which gas system is better. If you are new to the sporting rifle world, let me enlighten you on this little pickle that AR-and AK-heads fell into some time ago.

PTR-91 Factory SBR

PTR Industries—If HK Won’t, PTR Will

So you’ve always wanted a pre-ban, mint condition HK91 but don’t want to drop $2,500 on a collector piece? What if you could buy one for half as much, brand new, and made right here in the U.S.A.? What if the new one was actually better than the HK? You read that right. I said better.
