Ryan warns gun control coming in Obama 2nd term
Washington Examiner    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Rep. Paul Ryan, the avid hunter who is Mitt Romney's running mate, is warning that President Barack Obama in a second term will advocate for gun control, one of his passions before running for president in 2008. Obama has largely avoided the gun issue in his first term, especially after his 2008 presidential campaign gaffe in which he said bitter, rural Americans "cling to guns or religion." More

FINALLY, a gun lubricant exists that can withstand the most extreme conditions.
After using Safari Charlie Gun Lube Plus, Floro Lavalle with Sierra Outfitters in Argentina reported cleanings were much easier, they were needed less frequently and field jamming went down to almost non-existent. While these statements may seem generic and boring, consider that they shoot on average 2000-5000 rounds per day per gun, OVER 1 MILLION ROUNDS PER YEAR, and pair that with Lavalle’s full season of using Safari Charlie Gun Lube Plus. His report was an 83% reduction in repair/replacement costs. MORE...

    Wet deer opener
    Lone Star Outdoor News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    After spending countless hours situating stands, filling feeders and planning all the last-minute details of how the opening hunt of the year should go, rains across much of the state poured down, dampening the hopes of many hunters. The archery and MLDP opener is like Christmas to many of the state's deer hunters, who awoke this year to a soggy Saturday that hampered access to hunting locations and hurt visibility. More

    A new effort to clip the feral hog population in Texas began Oct 1. The state is offering money to hunters who kill the hogs. The invasive animals cause a lot of problems.

    Rules for buying collectible guns
    Guns & Ammo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    From Garry James: Perhaps a better title for this piece would be "Thoughts on Buying Collectible Guns." Personally, I hate most rules and go out of my way to skirt or break them whenever the fancy takes me. Buying any kind of collectible, be it firearms, comic books or bottle caps is subject to so many variables that it is often difficult to establish a bunch of hard and fast rules that apply to all cases.

    David Sikes, an outdoors columnist for the Corpus Christi Caller, writes: "Humidity is low. The temperature is 64 degrees. Fields are dry. The forecast calls for sunny and mild. And the first bird of the morning to bounce at my feet is a plump collared dove. Where the hell am I? Surely I was still asleep, dreaming about some mythical place where exotic dove fly on a cool breeze in September. Nope. I actually was in a field south of Kingsville for this Sept. 28 opener." More

    AR-15 debate: Can the .300 Blackout really replace the 5.56?
    Shooting Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    From Greg Rodriguez: The M4 platform has its detractors, but as long as it's kept relatively clean and well lubricated, it is as reliable as any firearm extant, and as for accuracy and ergonomics, the M4 is hard to beat. If the platform has any real weakness, it is the 5.56mm cartridge. Several cartridges have come down the pike recently that were intended to replace the 5.56, but the .300 AAC Blackout is, in my opinion, the most viable option. More
