Amateur Trap Association Moving The Grand American From Illinois to Missouri

Actions have consequences. Illinois Governor JB Pritzker’s (political) science-based ChiCom flu restrictions precluded the Land of Lincoln from hosting The Grand American national trap shooting championships in Sparta, Illinois. So the Amateur Trap Association, acting rationally, has moved the massive event to Missouri where that state’s residents and governor are “ecstatic” to host everyone. Built […]

The 5 Best Home Defense Tactical Shotguns

There are plenty of articles on the “best” of this or that. Those pieces are usually written on specs alone rather than actual experience.

Gun Review: Mossberg 590 Retrograde Shotgun

Just a short while back, I reviewed the pump action Mossberg 500 Retrograde and found it to be a fun, lightweight, easy-shooting gun. It was as simple as shotguns get.

In a world where we can cover just about anything with Picatinny rails, it’s nice to see the industry slow down and take a moment to simplify things. Don’t get me wrong, I love my rails, my M-LOK handguards, my lasers, lights, and optics. However, there’s a real appeal to the simple nature of the […]

Review: Mossberg International SA-20 Field 20 Gauge Shotgun

Semi-automatic 20-gauge shotguns are often good choices for female or younger shooters who want a lighter gun with less recoil, but with most of the shot-pattern effectiveness of a 12 gauge.

Several years ago, Winchester introduced the PDX1 Defender load, which introduced […]
