    According to the video, the shot was made from 2,530 yards, or about 1.43 miles.

    Video: Long-Range Pigeon Shoot in High Wind-2

    by

    If you haven't seen this guy's YouTube channel yet, you should definitely check it out. Ted's HoldOver features some of the most extreme pigeon shooting footage on the web.

    A few points: 1) Ted either eats the pigeons or feeds them to his cats; 2) Most of his shoots are done for extermination purposes at a farmer's request; 3) Almost all of his footage features clean kills.

    Hemingway's Gun Permit and Thousands More Documents Now Available at JFK Museum-0

    by

    Most readers of outdoor writing know a good deal about Ernest Hemingway. But for those of us who want to find out the details — like for example what Mary Hemingway's favorite hamburger recipe was — there's good news coming from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.

    More than 2,500 documents collected from Hemingway's farm outside of Havana have been newly digitized and made available at the museum, according to a story yesterday by The New York Times.

    What makes the collection all the more interesting is that Hemingway seemed to be a hoarder, saving everything from Christmas cards to tickets to bullfights to the Cuban gun permit pictured above.

    Obamacare Could Pit Provisions to Safeguard Gun Owners' Rights Against 'Executive Order 16'-2

    by

    The National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America were successful in ensuring the Affordable Care Act prohibits creation of a firearms database and stops doctors from disclosing or collecting information relating to a patient's firearms. However, Obamacare contains "sneaky backdoor" provisions that could jeopardize gun ownership for nearly 550,000 Americans (including veterans arbitrarily diagnosed with PTSD), according to a recent Townhall.com blog.
                   
    Attorney Rachel Alexander writes in an Oct. 21 Townhall.com blog that Senate Amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, Part C -- incorporated into Obamacare in December 2012 -- includes five provisions that protect gun owners.

    Steel Bullets Banned on Public Land in Utah-0

    by

    Lead isn’t the only bad-boy bullet material out there anymore. Steel is coming under fire for its propensity to ignite blazes when it ricochets. Most competitive shooters already know that steel ammo is a no-no for matches that have metal targets.

    Showing up with bullets that are magnetic is the easiest way to get DQ-ed because no one wants their expensive plates being damaged by steel-core ammo.

    HUNTING

    Zippo Woodsman
    I’m a hatchet man. There may be no other tool that’s as capable of handling so many outdoors tasks: whittling a spear, splitting a buck’s brisket, limbing a tree, pounding tent pegs, truing a table, defending a family… But Zippo’s new Woodsman tool may trump even a 3-pound hatchet. The versatile Woodsman features a mallet, a keen-edged hatchet, a peg-pulling claw, and a tempered saw blade that’s capable of making quick work of limbs up to 4 inches in diameter. It pulls hard duty cleaning up deadfall in my back yard and is a fixture in my pickup. ($80, zippooutdoor.com) —Andrew McKean
