ATRS Modern Varmint Rifle Now Available

This one is specific for Canadian readers: the ATRS Modern Varmint has been declared non restricted and has been issued an FRT by the RCMP. While pricier than an AR15, it’s pretty comparable in price to other high end non restricted rifles in Canada yet it’s using components that should result in a more accurate […]

Thank You To My Readers: 100k visitors in last 30 days

When I started this website 3.5 years ago, I never thought I’d be saying this, but over 100,000 people visited my website in the last 30 days. 100,000 people read 150,000 pages of articles. That’s incredible to me, because I grew up in a town with around 1000 people. I want to say thank you […]

Yesterday, Aztech Armory posted on GOC the reason why their recent importation of 50 Beowulf Magazines was denied.

For 2015, Sign a Petition That Matters

As we’ve all started our new year, it’s time to look forward and see what’s ahead of us in the Canadian hunting and firearms community. There’s Bill C-42, a good meaning but somewhat low-powered bit of legislation designed to do away with paper ATT’s (but keep them in spirit, attached to RPAL Licensing). It’s also […]

2014 Wrapup

It’s that time again: time to wrap up what happened on the site over the year. I started the site in February 2012, so we’re getting close to 3 years. This year, I put more focus on reviews for inexpensive hunting rifles and I spent a lot more time doing accompanying YouTube videos. I built out […]
