Only Remington Model 887 shotguns manufactured from December 1, 2013 through November 24, 2014 are affected. Remington urges Model 887 shotguns owners to take action immediately.
These days, I see a lot of shooters who seem to have forgotten how much fun shooting is. They are

Rock Island Auction Company’s May 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2014 Premiere Firearms Auction is this weekend and it is not shy about stating that this auction has the finest selection in its entire 20 year history. After looking at its catalog, that claim appears to be spot on.
State lawmakers will one day learn there are consequences to their actions. Unfortunately, it is more often the people governed than the lawmakers who receive the brunt of the repercussions from poor lawmaking. Over the last month or so, New York launched a new campaign—Start Up NY—touting a business-friendly attitude by promising a 10-year tax holiday for any business that starts, relocates or expands in New York. During this same time, Mayor Bloomberg, Senator Schumer, Governor Cuomo and others have made every effort to show exactly why businesses should not trust the Excelsior state (Ever Upward). Tax free? Maybe. Needlessly over regulated? Most definitely.

Cheaper Than Dirt! staffers covering the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas have filed reports on new ammunition and accessories introduced at the show. For ammo, here’s a look at what 2014 has to offer from Hornady and Remington, including new lines of lighter-recoiling rifle hunting loads and shotgun slug loads.
Remington stepped onto the SHOT Show floor with gusto touting their new R51 handgun. We anxiously got our hands on the already famous pistol to see if the feel of the gun lived up to the hype. Its smooth lines and tiny size make it perfect for concealed carry, while offering more than adequate firepower in the wisely chosen 9mm Luger caliber. Aside from sharing some looks with the much older Model 51, the new R51 looks akin to a circa 1950’s sci-fi movie prop—but in a good way!
It is funny how we sometimes let fashion take the place of utility. I am glad I have reached a certain age where comfort is more important than ego.
My first center fire rifle was a Mosin Nagant. I think quite a few of you may be able to say the same. The rifle cost $65, and it was a poor example of the type having suffered the indignity of having the original military stock cut short and an odd-looking pistol grip nailed to the stock. However, in 1970 money, the Nagant cost more than a nice example costs today.
Back on June 16, the Army News Service distributed a press release that said soldiers will continue to use the M4 carbine or improved M4A1 carbine as their issued weapon, and that the Army has concluded the Improved Carbine Competition (ICC) without having selected a winner.

Ever hear of the Smith & Wesson NT-430? Maybe not by that name, but the easiest description would probably be to use a famous movie quote, “Go ahead, make my day.”
Varmint rifles are popular; there’s no denying that. More shooters are taking to hunting everything from prairie dogs to coyote. Spending your off hours ridding someone’s land of vermin is usually a welcome pastime that landowners don’t always have time to do. Varmints are a destructive, invasive and generally unwanted group of pests most people would rather live without. So what’s the best tool for the job? It really depends on what you’re planning to eradicate.
