It’s been a fantastic year for The Shooter’s Log. We’ve churned out lots of content and insights related to firearms, ammunition, parts, accessories, safety, training and more. As 2019 wraps up and 2020 descends upon us, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of our most popular posts.
This isn’t a subjective list of best posts or anything like that. These are simply the most popular posts from the past year, dictated by you, the readers. If you haven’t had a chance to read any of these articles yet, now’s your chance!

Every state has a different set of laws in regard to how you may transport your guns.
While traveling through heavily restricted states, the McClure-Volkmer Act of 1986 — an amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1986 — gives travelers a “safe passage” through restricted states if guns are unloaded and cased, or locked up and kept inaccessible with the ammunition stored separately.

Seniors who have not handled firearms but suddenly realize that just maybe this gun thing is a good idea have a more difficult time learning handguns and shotguns and choosing a firearm with a good fit. But there are good choices.
The rifle is a product of CZ and available from CZ-USA. They were once marked BRNO. The CZ 527 is a light, neat-looking and effective rifle that will not strain the back with weight or the shoulder with recoil. The price is right as well.
