Keep your perspective
American Rifleman
Walking out the front door and heading for the pickup, I noticed that someone had left a plastic water bottle on the hood of the truck. There shouldn't have been anyone else around in this remote area. I immediately went from Yellow to Orange and cautiously moved to investigate. As I got closer to the truck, scanning in all directions, I saw a man step from around the corner of the house and start in my direction.

A harbinger of federal action on suppressors?
Shall Not Be Questioned
It's a good omen when Chris Cox is bringing the Josh Waldron, president of SilencerCo, out to the annual Congressional Sportsman's Foundation Congressional Shoot-Out. This indicates that the NRA is doing the necessary ground work to push for having suppressors removed from the National Firearms Act at some point in the future.

The 'gun safety group' lie
Bearing Arms
Now, perhaps more than at any point in American history, we are "people of the gun." Total and per capita firearms ownership is thought to be higher now than at any point in American history. Nearly every kind of shooting sport is seeing record growth. Firearms training classes are filling up, and new firearms ranges are being added nationwide, including so-called "guntry clubs" in major metropolitan areas that cater to an emerging urban gun culture.

Skill set: Eye dominance
The Tactical Wire
The "eye" question comes up with regularity, especially with new shooters. Most people have a dominant or strong hand. The same thing is true for the feet and legs. A right leg dominant person usually steps with that leg when they start moving, regardless of the direction of movement. The dominance principle applies to the eyes as well. A common question from new shooters is how to determine which eye is dominant.

Reloading your own ammunition: Depriming
By Ken Jolly
Primers are small inserts in the base of center-fire cartridges that spark the ignition of the gunpowder. Thus, when working with primers, safety is a primary concern. There is always the possibility of a small bang, and safety glasses should be worn when working with these. Depriming — or removing the expended primer — is accomplished with a die in your set that punches the spent primer out of the cartridge and at the same time resizes the cartridge to bring it back into spec.

The best multipurpose shotgun for shooters on a budget
Guns.com
When cash is low, it just isn't practical to have more than one shotgun for hunting and home defense. After all, the bills still need to be paid. Instead, combining the two is the best option and this is where the Mossberg 500 still shines brightest.
