    The late Bill Ruger (1916-2002) needs no introduction.

    column by: Patrick Meitin

    Huskemaw was not only on the spear tip of extreme long-range shooting but has developed riflescope systems that make shots at long-range much easier. Huskemaw uses patented technology to make dialing elevation and windage easier to understand and confidently extend the maximum effective range in the field.
