Bushnell has been one of the better-known optics companies in the gun industry for more than 65 years. Since they became a subsidiary of Vista Outdoors several years ago they’ve continued to grow and have – in my opinion – also experienced an increase in quality and design performance. Their AR Optics line is tailored […]
Thinking of a new laser for your modern sporting rifle? Bushnell’s just announced three new waterproof models in their AR Optics line; the Chase, the Haste and the Rush. Here’s their press release . . . Bushnell Announces AR Optics Laser Sights Three Laser Sight Systems Join the Popular AR Optics Line OVERLAND PARK, Kansas […]
New at the 2017 Show is a budget-minded optics line from Bushnell, called Engage. It’s a full line of riflescopes and binoculars in the $149 to $449 range, and from what I’ve seen they’re quite nice.

Bushnell’s SMRS (Short-Medium Range Scope) aims to please all of them. It’s designed to be a do-anything optic that zooms from both-eyes-open […]
I wasn’t the most accurate or the fastest, but today was a big improvement over yesterday’s dismal shotgun suckitude.
After a tiring day spent in TSA queues and miniscule airline seats yesterday, the cosmic balance has been restored. I spent an exhausting and awesome day shooting, learning and testing a slew of new gear from Bushnell, at a totally kick-ass shooting resort in southern Kentucky. We did so much shooting today that after an […]
