#1 Buckshot Ammo: #1 Buck Explained

When it comes to shotgun ammunition, there are plenty of choices. And while most shooters are very familiar with certain types, like the 00 buck, each bullet size and pellet count is different. The size of the buckshot bullets, or “shot,” will decrease as the shot type number increases – with buckshot for larger game and bird shot for smaller game. This means 000 buck is very large compared to #12 bird shot – with #1 buck right in the middle.

I’m an expert on judging bears. That’s right, if I see two bears side-by-side, I can usually tell you which is bigger. You might say, rather, that I’m an expert on judging small bears, because I’ve taken more of them by mistake than I’d like to admit. Believe me when I tell you bears, by themselves, are very difficult to judge. While nothing beats experience gained from looking at hundreds of bears, there are a few tricks you can use to discern their size in the field. Usually.

In the early 1960s sixgun manufacturers began searching for better varmint hunting cartridges than the big magnums. The revolver was about to become a real varminter with the introduction of not one, but two bottle-neck cartridges, both based on a necked-down .357 Magnum.

It’s been a decade since the Supreme Court affirmed, in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. City of Chicago (2010), that the Second Amendment protects an individual and fundamental right, striking down laws that effectively prohibited the possession of handguns in one’s own home.
 

SCOTUS Punts: Kavanaugh Sends 2A Signal; Alito Dissent Explains Why

While the U.S. Supreme Court once again punted on a Second Amendment case Monday, Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh signaled that the time is ripe for the high court to consider another gun rights case and a scathing 31-page dissent by Associate Justice Samuel Alito explained why. The importance of another high court ruling on Second Amendment rights—particularly the right to bear arms outside the home—cannot be overstated, and a paragraph in the Los Angeles Times by editorial writer Scott Martelle makes that clear.

People are feeling more self-sufficient these days. When it comes to self-defense, that’s a good thing.

By the looks of the baking aisle in the grocery stores, we are baking more from scratch. In states whose governors haven’t determined vegetable seeds to be nonessential, more people are planting gardens to improve their sense of food security. People who had not considered sewing before this pandemic have now taken to making masks for their families, strangers, and for profit.
 

SCOTUS Moots NYC 2A Case, Could Hear New Jersey Carry Challenge

Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court decided that a long-pending NYC Second Amendment challenge was mooted by law changes made after the case was filed. The decision ends speculation that the High Court might use the NYC case to establish new rules applicable to all Second Amendment cases in the future. It also means that ANJRPC’s pending challenge to NJ’s unconstitutional carry law could be the next Second Amendment case to be heard by the Supreme Court.

Chambered in .270 Win with a Leupold Vari X II 3 9X40 scope, this Browning A Bolt will make an excellent rifle for hunting medium to large game out to long range.

It's in good shape overall with some dings and scratches on top of the stock but is functionally solid. This A Bolt ships in a protective long gun case and includes 1 4rd magazine.

First, it’s the fastest organized form of plinking with .22 Rimfire, shooting steel plates for time, with world championship titles to be awarded. Then we’re presenting many of the new products that were to be announced at the NRA Annual Meeting and Show. John Scoutten won the coin toss, so he’s at our private range for shooting tests of new guns. Jim Scoutten is social distancing in the gun room with more new products that you were supposed to see in person in Nashville before the NRA event was canceled.

I’m not sure where it started, but it probably goes back to the blackpowder era when velocities were slow and sight radius was a determining factor in rifle accuracy. Many hunters and shooters still feel that, in order for a rifle to be capable of long-range accuracy, it has to be big and heavy and wear a long barrel.

Virginia Politician Teams With Gun Control Advocate To Unveil 2021 Gun Control Agenda

On April 10, disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed five pieces of anti-gun legislation into law. Those measures criminalize the private sale of firearms, ration handgun sales to one a month, create a “red flag” gun confiscation scheme, punish property crime victims who fail to hastily report a firearm as stolen, and restrict how Virginia parents may store and introduce their children to firearms. Northam sent two pieces of anti-gun legislation back, including legislation that erodes the Right-to-Carry and the state firearms preemption statute, to the general assembly with governor’s amendments. The General Assembly enacted both items of legislation on April 22.

The Mosin Nagant rifle, there are few shooters out there that don’t know what they are or the general history of the gun that armed first the Tsarist Russian Army to the Soviet Military and even now still in some form of service in various countries around the world. In between Finland, China, Poland, and dozens of other countries ended up using one form of Mosin Nagant either of Russian origin or of their own making. In the case of Finland, they took the Russian made guns and improved upon the design taking a utilitarian rifle designed to simply just work to become one of the most accurate bolt action rifles ever to be used in combat.

I’ve been on both sides of the wind in many of my outdoor adventures but none more notable than last week, when the well-worn mooring rope on the cleat of my boat broke. My boys and I had the stunning experience of heading down from the parking lot to the launch dock to see the old Lund about 40 yards out in the bay, with a portion of the red tether dangling off the side and the other part still attached to the dock.
 

In the wind This New Hunting Knife Is for People Who Don’t Hunt

You probably know Victorinox through its iconic flagship, the Swiss Army Knife. There’s a chance you know it through its affordable yet reliable kitchen knives. And if watches rank in your interests, you might even know Victorinox for its timepieces. But you probably do not know the Swiss company for its hunting knives, and that’s precisely why you should take note of the new limited-edition Hunter Pro Alox Damast that the brand just released.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. — George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
