    Browning's Invector-DS-1

    by

    Choke tube design takes a big leap forward with Browning’s new Invector-DS (double seal) system. The choke’s thin wall construction reduces the flare at the muzzle end of the barrel for a sleeker appearance. Browning added a brass alloy band at the base of the tube to seal out gas and grit that likes to migrate between the barrel and tube.

    Poll Reflects Positive Change In Public Attitude Toward 2nd Amendment-1

    by

    According to an annual Gallup crime poll, only 26 percent of Americans favor a handgun ban--a record low, down from 60 percent when Gallup first asked the question in 1959.

    The poll, conducted Oct. 6-9 and published on Oct. 26, also shows that for the first time, there’s more opposition than support for a ban on semiautomatic handguns or rifles--53 percent to 43 percent. In 1996, these numbers were nearly reversed.

    Support for stricter gun laws has also declined, with 44 percent believing laws should be left as they are, and 11 percent favoring less strict laws.

    Buffoonery Endangers 2nd Amendment Advancements -3

    by

    Tennessee and Ohio recently enacted legislation to allow non-drinking patrons with conceal-carry permits to carry firearms in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. Tennessee loosened its prohibitions against personal weapons in bars in 2010, and Ohio followed suit earlier this year.

    But already, acts of buffoonery by armed and intoxicated idiots have given gun-grabbers ammunition to imperil these Second Amendment advancements in both states--as well as in the 21 states that allow guns in places that serve alcohol, the 12 that permit them in restaurant sections of bars, and the eight that allow unfettered concealed-carry in bars.

    New Browning Citori 725 Features A New Trigger and Sleeker Profile-2

    by

    Browning’s Citori over-and-under has always been a good looking shotgun, as well as an ultra-reliable shooter. For 2012, Browning went it one better in the new Citori 725 12 gauge and designed a lower receiver than past Citori’s for sleeker lines and easier shooting.
       
    Yet, it’s just as rugged, with a full-width hinge pin and tapered locking bolt design.

    Weatherby’s New Range Certified Rifles Guarantee Sub-MOA-3

    by

    Give the good people at Weatherby some credit. They not only guarantee that each of their new “Range Certified” or RC rifles— the Vanguard® Series 2 RC and Mark V® TRR RC rifles— will shoot at a sub-minute of angle (a three-shot group at .99-inch or less). Each of these rifles also comes with a factory-shot target proving that specific rifle’s sub-moa capabilities and is signed by company President Ed Weatherby himself.

    Do-All Outdoors Introduces New Moving Targets-1

    by

    Is it just me, or does shooting at paper targets get real old real quick? I personally like to see something move when I hit it -- makes me feel like I accomplished something, and that’s the fun of the new Do-All Outdoors Impact Seal Targets. 

    Do-All Outdoors designed these targets to handle all calibers. Bullets will actually pass right through the targets when they’re hit. The targets will then seal up themselves to the size of a pinhole so you can shoot again and again.

    These are good-sized targets. The Impact Seal Bowling Pin, for example, is the same size as an actual bowling pin.  The target normally sits straight up in the air. But when you hit with a round, it will spin over before coming back into the upright position. Same deal goes for all the other Impact Seal models: Bullseye Brew, Big Gong Show, Lone Prairie Dog and Double Prairie Dog.

    Concealed Carry And Firearms On College Campuses-7

    by

    School is in session and courts are issuing lessons on the United States Constitution.

    On Sept. 29, the Oregon Court of Appeals overturned a longtime policy of the state university system that barred guns from college campuses, regardless of permits. The ruling makes it legal for permit holders to carry loaded weapons anywhere on public college grounds where, despite protests from some in Academia, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights still apply.

    Oregon joins Colorado, Wisconsin and Mississippi as states which recently allowed guns on campus.

    There are now 22 states that still expressly prohibit concealed carry on college campuses by persons with a valid concealed handgun license/permit. Of those, Texas law specifically prohibits concealed carry on campus, but includes a clause which allows an individual college/university to "opt out" of the law and allow concealed carry.
