British company Holland & Holland introduced the .300 H&H Magnum in 1925. Initially called the “Super-Thirty,” it was designed to hunt African plains animals – all of which it can harvest except the very largest. The first .30 caliber magnum to hit the commercial market, .300 H&H Mag ammo has also been successfully employed for elk hunting, as well as taking moose and other large game animals in North America.

Rossi this month announced their new Rio Bravo lever-action rimfire rifle, based on their popular R92 series cowboy guns, chambered in .22 LR. The hammer-fired rifle has an under-barrel magazine tube that holds up to 15 rounds of .22LR and is fed in much the same way as the familiar Marlin Model 60. With an 18-inch barrel, the overall length of the Rio Bravo is a handy 36-inches. Weight is 5.5-pounds and the carbine includes a cross-bolt safety and sling studs.

The gun rights group behind January’s large protest in and around Capitol Square is suing to block the implementation of a gun control measure set to take effect next month. The Virginia Citizens Defense League is among the five plaintiffs suing the state over a soon-to-become law that limits people to buying one handgun per month. The group filed the lawsuit Friday in Goochland Circuit Court, arguing that the law violates residents’ constitutional rights.

 

CA: California Assembly Shrugs off Shut Down, Passes Anti-Gun Bills

While most of the state has been shut down, California’s Democrat-controlled state Assembly is hard at work passing anti-gun legislation. The body last week gave a thumb’s up to a pair of measures that would tack on a list of civil fines on Federal Firearms Licensees for what gun rights advocates contend are “inconsequential” errors and strengthen a law that effectively serves as a ban on modern semi-auto handguns.

The Springfield Operator name is a strong one, going back at least as far as the custom M1911s the company made for the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team in the early 2000s. The Ronin Operator, the company’s newest series, is an attractive two-tone M1911 with a forged stainless frame mated to a forged, blued carbon steel slide.

In a blistering reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court’s rejection of ten gun rights cases for review, the Second Amendment Foundation declared Chief Justice John Roberts “owes every gun owner in the United States an explanation about why the high court declined to hear a number of important Second Amendment cases.”

The cases, from across the country, provided what SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb compared to a buffet of legal opportunities for the court to weigh in on a Second Amendment issue for the first time in a decade.

Justice Clarence Thomas suggested on Monday that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) tolerates requirements on the exercise of the Second Amendment that it would not allow to be applied to abortion or free speech. The specific case, Rogers v. Grewal, centered on New Jersey’s requirement that citizens show “justifiable need” for a owning a gun before a handgun permit is issued.

 

Are Sub-Gauges Good for Self-Defense?

If you can handle the recoil and shoot a 12-gauge shotgun well, then there’s little reason to go with a smaller gauge for self-defense; after all, when your life’s on the line, the more lead delivered to your attacker is almost always better; anyone who tells you a 20-gauge is just as good as a 12-gauge or a 28-gauge is just as good as a 20-gauge is not speaking from a mathematical, terminal-performance perspective, but a personal bias.

Not Funny: Firearm Prohibitionists Finally Target Elmer Fudd’s Gun

It was bound to happen. Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam have now been disarmed. For some in the pro-gun community, the term “Fudd” denotes a person who owns guns, typically not for self-defense, but considers themselves above the fray of Second Amendment politics. But it is not owning this or that type of gun that makes a person a Fudd. Rather, it’s an attitude of indifference to the besieged plight of gun owners generally. The name derives from Elmer Fudd, the classic Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoon character who single-mindedly pursued ducks and rabbits (Daffy and Bugs in particular) with his trusty assortment of long arms, usually to his own detriment.

Lessons in the Value of Strong State Firearms Preemption Laws

Along with the sweeping success of the Right-to-Carry movement, strong state firearms preemption laws have been among the most important developments over the past half-century in the way average Americans own and use firearms. To open a circa 1970 edition of ATF's State Laws and Published Ordinances is to encounter an incomprehensible patchwork of county and city regulations that made it impossible for otherwise law-abiding gun owners to confidently exercise their right to keep and bear arms.

The NRA won. The rights of law-abiding New Mexicans to purchase a firearm and go to the range have been vindicated. In April, the NRA—along with the New Mexico Shooting Sports Association, Second Amendment Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, and Mountain States Legal Foundation—filed suit in federal court against Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for shuttering retail firearms businesses and ranges due to COVID-19.

The NRA knows how to measure success. Nearly a year since announcing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) now allows states to use the NRA’s free Online Hunter Education Course as Pittman-Robertson (P-R) Act match dollars, the NRA is pleased to follow up that good news with the fact the course has raised more than $150,000 for state wildlife agencies through matching federal P-R grants to date.

I call the waterfowl blind draws the wildest social event in Illinois outdoors. And that social aspect, with some blind draws gathering thousands, may have been the undoing of Illinois’ public blind draws in 2020 with the ongoing pandemic. On Monday, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources announced the cancellation of the waterfowl blind draws for 2020.

How to Take Your First Overland Hunting Adventure this Fall

Overlanding and hunting go together naturally. Many of us take trips each fall, staying in motels or renting a cabin, so we can have a warm home base at night after a long day of chasing roosters or sitting in a treestand. But for some, it’s smarter financially (and during these unprecedented times when social distancing is still a part of everyday life to remain healthy) to turn a truck or SUV into a mobile hunting home. And it doesn’t take loads of cash to make it happen. In fact, you will likely save money in the long run since you won’t have to pay for a room anymore.
