Shot Placement: Come at Me, Bro

“I hope your dogs eat your face.” “You deserve to be raped. I want to be the one to do it.” “I’m going to hunt your family like you hunted that deer.” These and other gems have become nauseatingly familiar to me. Apparently some people hunt and shoot without ever being on the receiving end […]

I Am The NRA (And You Should Be, Too)

Yesterday I slid my renewed NRA membership card into my wallet. As the red-white-and-blue rectangle of plastic snugged up against my NSSF press card and ragged old Hunter’s Education card, it hit me: 15+ years of membership, and only now am I forced to defend my decision to support the NRA.

No, it wasn’t in the op-ed hammered out by some guy who boasted of his collection of eight firearms […]

My Lost (and Found) Remington 700 .260

I’ve been hunting whitetail dear since I was a tyke. Over the years I’ve tried different rifles and calibers, but I always come back to the Remington Model 700 .260 that my father gave me as my first rifle. It’s seen a lot of use, doesn’t have a high-priced optic and no longer looks like […]

You Know, A 1911 Goes Great in a Kydex Holster

Certain things are a tradition for good reason. Turkey dinners at Thanksgiving, because it’s right around hunting season.
