Getting the Blade: Why Carrying a Knife Will Help Keep You Sharp
From Fish & Game Exclusives by Paul Bradshaw- There are certain lessons in life that my father taught me that I’ll never forget.  How to drive a standard transmission (I’m sure he hasn’t forgotten that lesson either).  That your belt buckle, pants zipper, and buttons on your shirt should all line up (still trying to teach this one to my son who refuses to wear a belt).  And neve...

Shooting Review: Adams Arms’ 5.45×39 Mid-Length Complete Upper Receiver
From The Firearm Blog: This review could not have come at a worse time to a better company & product. TFB requested the Adams Arms upper when 7n6 was plentiful. With the recent ban on cheap MilSurp ammo, the allure of 5.45 may be waning, but as a DI guy I walked away plenty impressed with the Adams Arms piston kit. I never quite understood why 5.45 did not catch on as much as 7.62×39. It ...

Duck-Hunting Myths — Busted
(www.grandviewoutdoors.com) By Wade Bourne-I had joined friends for a duck hunt on a popular wildlife management area where blinds were close and hunting pressure was heavy. The parking lot had been busy in the predawn with hunters launching boats and scurrying to their blinds. It was going to be a “full house day,” and my friends’ blind was square in the middle of the pack. “We probably need to l...

Distance on a Budget
(americanrifleman.org) By Benjamin Shotzberger- Long-range shooting usually starts out as something “cool” to try at the range. The inevitability of competition, even against ourselves, drives us to want to see just what we’re capable of—and then go farther. The first round successfully placed on target at distances well over 100 yards is truly something memorable. Engaging targets at long range r...

Question of the Day: Would You Lend a Gun to a BFF in Trouble?
From TheTruthAboutGuns.com- I don’t know much about Blue Ruin (due in selected theaters April 25) but I’ve been in the big guy’s shoes. Someone I knew (a female of course) was in trouble.

That wa...

The Shootingwire.com FEATURE I Can See Clearly Now
From TheShootingwire.com- For the past few weeks, I've been shooting my side-match competition .22 caliber rifle with a Redfield Battlezone riflescope instead of my normal scope. I had liked the reticle on Redfield's "bigger"scopes designed for modern sport rifles or precision bolt guns in .223/5.56 or 7.62.
