For a beginner hunting rifle, I often recommend a budget rifle but what if you have a few extra dollars to spend on a better quality rifle? Within the midrange of hunting rifles ($600-$1000), there are 2 rifles that I hear most often recommended: the Browning X-Bolt and the Tikka T3 Lite. Tikka is Sako’s […]
Competition shotguns are funny beasts. Tube mag shotguns feed and reload very differently than most semi automatic, box magazine fed rifles. Within the realm of 3 gun shotguns in the US, box magazine fed Saiga shotguns are popular for their fast reloads and high capacity. This Akdal MKA 1919 Match is Akdal’s second generation and comes with […]
Crua Tri Thermal Insulated Tent Tents come with some built-in disadvantages. They don’t do a heck of a lot to keep heat in, forcing you to use beefy sleeping bags and making you dread having to put on cold clothes in the morning. They get bright as soon as the sun comes out, so they’re not […]
RZ Industries sent me 2 mossy oak masks, a regular and XL. The regular fit me fine, so I’d like to give away the other. If you’d like a chance to win that mask, send in your favorite hunting picture that you’ve taken and a bit of description. I’ll post all the entrants on an upcoming […]

For most, that includes a face mask or face paint. The RZ Industries hunting mask is a […]
Note, this is just what I’ve found has worked for me. I’m not an expert, but I have a few friends starting in 3 gun and I wanted to share some training resources and findings. I’ve covered most of the equipment for Canadians in my other Canadian-specific 3 gun article, so this one is going […]
Cabela’s has a flash sale tonight only on a bunch of ammo, guns, etc. I’m picking up a pile of target ammo.
Gun Storage Solutions Review Gun safe marketing is hilarious. “8 gun” safes struggle to fit 6, “16 gun” safes struggle to fit 8 long guns, you always run out of space sooner than you think you should. I have a 16 gun safe from Costco, but I started really running out of room at around […]
I wanted to throw these images up in case anyone was looking for a crossbow. Review will be a while yet.
Gun laws are a bit odd in most countries. Gun control legislators usually legislate with emotions rather than logic, and the resulting laws are frequently all over the place. The most awkward laws are frequently those that attempt to ban “assault weapons”, a made up term to gun control activists use to describe a wide […]
