The only difference between a good shooter and a great shooter are the details
Whether it’s for your job, competition, or plain fun, shooting well takes more than just knowledge of guns. It takes a solid understanding of the fundamentals of marksmanship. For years, I’ve found the following fundamentals to be proven, simple to understand, and successful for students. Each fundamental listed is important, but the importance is not based on where it falls in the list — it’s up to you to decide what is important and when. They are:
President Donald Trump’s abrupt ouster of FBI Director James Comey leaves a leadership vacuum at the nation’s premier law enforcement agency that won’t be easy to fill.
Any permanent replacement for Comey requires Senate confirmation, no easy task given the bipartisan outpouring of dismay over Comey’s ouster. Democrats and Republicans alike expressed concern that the FBI director was fired at the same time his agency was investigating ties between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
Kimber is upgrading its Micro and Micro 9 compact carry pistol lineup to include six new variants: the Kimber Micro Desert Tan (LG); Micro Rose Gold; Micro 9 Rose Gold; Micro 9 Midnight (LG); Micro 9 Desert Night (LG); and Micro 9 Woodland Night (LG).
One of the most pressing concerns for new gun owners is undoubtedly buying a holster that can accommodate his or her firearm. The only problem is that with the amount of choices out there offering concealment and comfort, knowing where to start looking seems like an impossible task.
Exterior Ballistics is simply the portion of a bullet’s flight once it leaves the muzzle until it hits the target. It is important for shooters to understand the forces at play during this window, if they have their sights set on accuracy.
Advancements in propellants have reduced their sensitivity to temperature fluctuations. But heat and cold still play a role in how much pressure powders produce when ignited.
The DVC Carry moves a STI line of pistols better known for competition squarely into the realm of self-defense.
Federal Premium should get shooters fired up at the range and in the field with four new lines of ammunition.
The new DoubleStar ARC 300 offers shooters the reliability and weight efficiency of the line, but in the eminently suppressible .300 Blackout. The idea behind DoubleStar’s ARC (Always Ready Carbine) when it was released a while back was not only to create a reliable rifle, but one that put a premium on weight efficiency. The Kentucky-based company produced an AR-style rifle packed with the features shooters have come to expect. At the same time, the lightweight 5.56×45 NATO carbine was sized right to be a constant companion — whether in a patrol cruiser or afield. The ARC appears to have struck the right cords in the black gun end of the firearms market, with DoubleStar expanding the line to include a model in .300 Blackout. Introduced at the April 27-30 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Atlanta, the DoubleStar ARC 300 promises the same top performance as its predecessor, but…
Just in time for NRA 2017, Remington has just introduced their 870 Tac-14 shotgun which falls into a category not covered by NFA short-barreled shotgun regulations although it is a 14-inch barrel.
