SilencerCo and Noveske: Get Out and Find Your Range

Square ranges are boring. Public shooting ranges with stalls and benches are great for getting a solid 100 yard zero or a quick test of your new gun, but the most fun you can possibly have with a firearm takes place outside the confines of the dirt berms. As our own writers Chris Dumm and Joe Grine know, some of the best shooting grounds in the United States are out in the wilderness. SilencerCo is launching a new series of videos to illustrate this point and Noveske joined them for the initial shoot to show off some of their pretty awesome kit. But there is an ulterior motive at work . . .

Weekend Photo Caption Contest

World War I in 1915 (1)

 

We’re a little late in announcing it, but the winner of last week’s contest and soon-to-be recipient of a pair of Smith & Wesson M&P earmuffs is Paul53. A polite golf clap by everyone would be appropriate at this point.

LMGs, Bromance, and Exploding Soda Bottles

Dougan Ashley and Carnik Con seem to have gotten their money’s worth from a trip to the Knight’s Armament factory in Florida, home of the world’s best machine gun collection. In this video he runs through some of the best light machine guns, blowing stuff up and maybe learning just a little bit along the way. Also making a special appearance are Trey Knight (making good use of his daddy’s tank collection) and his hetero life partner Kevin Brittingham. Gotta admit, it’s pretty entertaining.

Our First P320 Winner

As we’ve mentioned, SIG SAUER was generous to allow us to give away not one, but two P320 pistols during this latest, most epic content contest. And as Nick announced earlier, in addition to awarding one for the best article submitted, we’re giving the second gun away via a drawing of the names of everyone who’s submitted an entry. Well yesterday, in a super-secret location, we assembled the names of all of the People of the Gun who’d metaphorically put pen to paper, dropped them into an old rusty ammo can and plucked the name of Dave Keller from the inky blackness. So congrats, Dave. Your FFL of choice will soon be receiving a little package with your name on it. And to the rest of you, stay tuned because we’ll announce the other winner on Friday.

Game Preview: Battlefield Hardline

There’s little doubt that a good portion of the new shooters flooding into the gun stores and ranges started their interest in firearms thanks to playing video games. First person shooter games especially have had a huge influence, as evidenced by the Call of Duty tie-ins and Zombie-themed firearms and accessories. One of the most popular franchises in first person shooter games has been the Battlefield series, and the latest incarnation coming to systems near you is Battlefield Hardline. I’ve been playing the Beta version for a few days now, and in my opinion . . .

P320 Contest Update: Light At the End of the Tunnel

911-McGinley

When we started our SIG Sauer P320 give-away, we thought we knew what to expect. We’d held a few content contests in the past and while the responses were always strong, the entries in those were but drops in a bucket compared to the deluge we’ve been mopping up here at TTAG central command. Not that we’re complaining. It’s just that, a little more than two weeks after the entry deadline, we’re still getting the occasional entry and some of you want to know who’s won? Well . . .
