The correct shotgun choke can make all the difference
By Irwin Greenstein
The wise use of shotgun chokes can make a significant difference in the results you'll see for wing and clays shooting. In the strictest interpretation, the choke section of the barrel determines the constriction of the muzzle in order to regulate distribution of the shot charge to your target. These days, however, a choke often refers to an interchangeable tube that screws into the muzzle of the shotgun.

VETERANS ISSUES


Army testing load-lightening exosuits
Army Times
The futuristic exosuits being tested by Army researchers won't help soldiers outrun locomotives, and it'll still take more than a single bound to clear a tall building. But a final prototype of the device, which could cut a wearer's exertion level by 25 percent when carrying a 100-pound load and might let an unburdened soldier run a four-minute mile, could be tested in a realistic setting in less than two years, according to Maj. Christopher Orlowski, who runs the program under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's banner.

Deer hunters don't spend money on safety items
The Advocate via Standard-Examiner
As many advances as there have been when it comes to deer hunting, it's proven through years of hunters' surveys that among the last priorities is hunter safety.
