    by

    This video was uploaded to YouTube last year by 1Grizzman and is starting to catch some attention. It's a pretty cool demonstration of how the right long-range gear mixed with the proper know-how can produce impressive results.

    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.

    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.

    Wyoming Repeals Suppressor Ban-0

    by

    Way back in December our Shooting Editor, John B. Snow, covered why suppressors matter. When that article was published, there were 39 states which allowed civilians to own suppressors. 

    Another state was added to the list Monday when Wyoming passed a bill which repealed the prohibition of hunting with supressors.

    Hunters Boycott Colorado Over New Gun Control Laws-6

    by

    Hunters from around the country are planning to boycott Colorado after the state passed stricter gun control legislation last week. "Republican opponents of the new background-check law said it would make criminals of hunters lending each other [guns] for weekend hunting trips. In response, Democrats changed the bill to give people a 72-hour grace period to share guns without triggering background-check requirements. Republicans then complained the bill would imperil weeklong hunting trips," according to the Associated Press.

    And the backlash has begun. Outfitters have reported a flood of trip cancelations from out-of-state hunters and Michael Bane, a producer for the Outdoor Channel, said he would no longer film his four shows in Colorado.

    Get Off My Lawn: 84-Year-Old Korean War Vet Shoots Home Intruder with Luger-19

    by

    If I didn’t know any better I’d say the following item came off the back cover of a Clint Eastwood Gran Torino DVD rather than the newswire.

    According to WPXI.com, 84-year-old Korean War veteran Fred Ricciutti shot a home intruder with the German Luger he used in the war. The shooting occurred in Elizabeth Township, Pennsylvania Tuesday morning, around 4:30 am when Ricciutti was awoken by the sounds of 25-year-old Raymond Hiles, breaking through his kitchen window. Ricciutti grabbed his gun and went to investigate.

    Mexico Has Only One Legal Gun Shop and Overbearing Laws, But Violence Continues-7

    by

    Mexico has some of the strictest gun laws, yet – as we all know – also has a rising crime rate and prosperous black market gun sales. Also, the country only has one legal gun store that is found in Mexico City on a military base, reports the Miami Herald.

    People looking to legally obtain a firearm must go all the way to Mexico City to get their permits and guns. When they arrive at the store a metal detector greets them, and a slew of soldiers keep an eye on them. The law states that if you are purchasing a gun for home protection you are only allowed one pistol or revolver (from .22 to .38 calibers) with 200 rounds of ammunition available per person each year.
