Gun control advocates want Americans to believe that military-style semi-automatic rifles are designed for one thing and one thing only: spree killing. (e.g., “Such weapons are nearly useless for self-defense but perfect for mass murder.”) Gun rights advocates counter than AR-style rifles are the Swiss Army knife of long guns. They fulfill many roles, from target practice to home defense. And hunting. For some reason, the anti-gun crowd treads carefully around the hunting issue—as if taking game is a sacred American right that transcends day-to-day politics. Which, of course, it is and does. So I present to our fence-straddling friends in urban environs a picture of a scary black gun that’s ideal for deer hunting. If you dare, check out Wilson Combat’s marketing copy [after the jump]. It doesn’t shy away from the fact that a good hunting gun is a good self-defense gun is a good hunting gun. Why is that so hard to understand? Or accept?
Designed for tactical/defense applications as well as hunting for medium sized game such as deer and feral hogs. The 7.62×40 WT (Wilson Tactical) has very useful tactical applications with soft point and hollow point bullets providing reliable terminal performance on soft tissue while the Barnes TTSX will easily penetrate tough barriers. For hunting the 7.62×40 WT vastly out performs the 5.56 and is on par with the 6.8SPC at ranges out to 175-200 yards. The VERY mild recoil of the 7.62×40 WT also makes it ideal for female and younger shooters as well as anyone that’s recoil sensitive.
