    Lock, Stock & Barrel

    The Hunter's Trigger
    column by: Lee J. Hoots

    There came a time when the idea of providing unsolicited advice to another shooter became something I wanted no part of, and still don’t. This first started back when internet forums were wired up and became crammed with “factual opinions,” many of which made little sense to me. Twelve years later, such web chatter still goes on and on, though some pundits now provide good advice – although people will believe what they want anyway, no matter if it’s wrong or right. ...Read More >

    Why the Winchester Pre-'64 Model 70 Still Matters
    column by: Brian Pearce

    Mauser Model 1898
    column by: Mike Venturino

    Light Gunsmithing

    An Interesting Open Sight
    column by: Gil Sengel

    Today, it seems that firearms we use for hunting have to carry either a scope or a red dot sight. Included are not only rifles, but handguns and even shotguns used for turkeys. This is all rather strange to someone who grew up long before red dots, where the only scopes seen were either on centerfire .22 varmint rifles or rimfire target guns. ...Read More >
