Some people will tell you that hunting hogs in the high heat of summer is a fool’s errand – and so it can be, especially if you shoot a big boar when it’s furnace hot in the bottom of some remote, roadless, hellhole of a canyon miles from anywhere. I have been there and done that. Unless you’re a slow learner, you probably won’t care to repeat the experience.

The term “build” as applied to AR-type rifles is technically wrong. A more accurate term would be to “assemble.” Besides having fun at a hobby, more often than not the reason many folks like to assemble a rifle/carbine is to save money. I’d like to have a dollar for every time I heard someone say something like, “My brother-in-law Bubba scrounged parts and built my rifle on his kitchen table. It’s just as good as any of the big names.”

O’Rourke & Biden Say, “We’ll Take Your AR-15” (Here’s Why That Won’t Happen)

When Beto O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat and former presidential hopeful, was on the campaign trail, he confidently declared, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” Obviously, Joe Biden is now the Democrat frontrunner against incumbent Donald Trump. Biden, riding the wave of liberal energy sweeping the nation in 2020, adopted O'Rourke's gun control campaign promises. The only problem with such declarations against the Second Amendment is that it’ll never actually happen. Here's why.

Many F-Class competitive shooters still use this style of bullet, as it is a proven performer. With the variety of match-grade ammo on the market, there is likely a load that will perform admirably in your rifle.

COVID-19 might be affecting nearly every corner of the Coloradan way of life, but hunting could remain insulated from the virus, a Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) spokesperson said. “Part of our challenge with predicting the pandemic is it seems things change on a day-to-day basis,” CPW spokesperson Randy Hampton said. “But at this point it does not appear there will be any impact on hunting seasons from our perspective.”

The national Democratic Party is no longer making any attempt to hide their antipathy towards guns and gun owners. Where once the party attempted to tailor their anti-gun messaging to appear moderate and appeal to some gun owners, the draft 2020 Democratic Party Platform contains a full-throated assault on firearms ownership and a blueprint for undermining every aspect of Second Amendment rights. Viewed in historical context, the draft 2020 Democratic Party Platform is the most anti-gun the party has ever put forward.

Democrats unable to deal with the sudden crime increases in major cities are falling back on their favorite scapegoats—guns and Second Amendment rights—to mask their party’s failures, according to Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, in a blistering interview with Fox News. As Conway was speaking, major gun rights organizations were reacting to language in a draft of the Democrat 2020 political platform targeting guns and the citizens who own them.

"What's the point in living?" "I just want to die." Those were the comments police said a man made prior to having his guns taken in the first local case involving Virginia’s new "red flag" law. The case was adjudicated on Monday in Winchester Circuit Court. The 45-year-old Winchester man made the suicidal threats while in possession of a pistol on July 17, according to police. He voluntarily surrendered three guns to police and will not be allowed to possess guns until at least Jan. 30. The man didn't attend the hearing on the "substantial risk order," according to Marc Abrams, Winchester commonwealth's attorney. The Winchester Star isn't naming the man because he hasn't been charged with a crime.

Originally created as a promotion for retailers and ranges to attract new customers during the traditional summer slump, it’s become a celebration among gun owners with an emphasis on introducing new shooters to the industry, teaching firearms safety and sharing a collective love of shooting sports.
