Newsmax    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Keene, speaking to Newsmax at CPAC Colorado, said that Americans oppose gun laws and it's not just the work of the NRA or of the Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment right to bear arms extends to individual Americans.

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.

His report was an 83% reduction in repair/replacement costs. MORE...

    USA Shooting    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Haley Dunn picked a fine time to mark her return to the competitive shotgun ranks this week while Vincent Hancock's competitors probably wish he'd think about putting the gun up for awhile himself. With wins in a windy, cold final day at the 2012 Fall Selection Match in Kerrville, Dunn has re-emerged on the skeet stage, while it was business as usual for Hancock. More

    Thought on CCWs
    American Rifleman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Apparently, enough American gun owners are making their feelings known to the politicians, because the majority of states have enacted laws that permit some form of CCW permits. Better yet, there is a bill under consideration that would require all states to honor permits issued by other states. This is a positive step forward and is much closer to the day when every American can be licensed to carry if he or she so chooses. More

    American Free Press via Google News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Costa Rica is set to be the first country in the American continent to ban recreational hunting after the country's legislature approved the popular measure by a wide margin. The bill, which bans hunting for sport but still allows culling and subsistence hunting, was approved by a 41-5 vote. Congress will revisit the issue, but the second round is seen as just a formality. President Laura Chinchilla, who supports the measure, is expected to sign it into law. More

    Tasty, tricky doves
    Seguin Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Dove hunting bothers a lot of people who think of doves from TV, Christmas cards and weddings. What many people don't know is that the "white dove of peace" is usually a pigeon. Doves and pigeons are close relatives, members of the family Columbidae. White homing pigeons became the "white doves" because they return to their roost after being released. They're also larger, which makes them show up better on camera. Actual white doves are usually a color mutation of a ring-necked dove. More

    Las Palomas Wildlife Management Area wildlife biologist Sam Patten and hunter Dana Frosch stand over a map. In a parking lot at the end of Kornegay Road north of San Benito, they talk about finding white-winged doves and about a series of strong storms moving through the area. But the first question Patten asked Frosch, the first dove hunter to arrive for a special hunt Sept. 1 at the Las Palomas Wildlife Management Area — Carricitos Unit, was whether he had an annual public hunting permit.
