    Getting Started In Competitive Shooting

    Getting Started with Competitive Shooting

    So you want to be a competitive shooter, but don’t know where to start. My best advice I can give to you is to start. Your first competition is the scariest. You don’t know what to expect, you don’t know who you will meet, and you don’t know how you’ll perform. For me, it was the greatest decision I ever made.

    The first thing I recommend to get started is to be a spectator at a competition you are interested in shooting. There are a lot of sports out there, so it depends on what you want to shoot and what clubs are near where you live. In my experience, match directors encourage new shooters to come out and will even walk you through how to shoot the competition.

    When you show up to a match, the first thing competitors do is check-in. Depending on how early you arrive, it’s a good idea to walk through the stages to see how they are set up. Most matches have the stages designed ahead of time and are posted online, but

  6. 13 Firearm Experts Explain What Americans Don't Understand About Gun Control

    Do Americans have the right to own a gun? Of course we do. It’s in our Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    The Supreme Court has already overturned several gun control laws within the last decade alone. They determined that the banning of guns were unconstitutional.

    Yet there are still some people who argue for stricter gun control policies. They insist that gun ownership leads to gun-related crimes and that banning guns can reduce violent crime.

    However the statistics have proven time and time again that the rate of violent crime will go up even if ordinary, law-abiding citizens are denied ownership of guns. And let's face it, criminals don’t obey laws in the first place. They won’t care if there&r

  7. How to Safely Introduce Your Kids to Hunting

    Hunters and supporters of the Second Amendment both know all too well the constant battle that is necessary to defend our rights and opportunities. Both gun shooting sports and hunting have a decent level of participation today but seem against the directional momentum of our modern culture. Getting the next generation involved in hunting and shooting is imperative to maintaining our constitutional gun rights as well as hunting opportunities and land access rights.

    In addition to helping the overall cause, getting kids involved in hunting and shooting is important to passing on the traditions of each. It is also very beneficial to the individual child. Kids today lack quality, face-to-face human interaction, exercise and time spent outdoors. Hunting and shooting offer plenty of opportunities in all of the areas where kids today are lacking.

  8. Choosing .308 Ammo: What you Need to Know

    The venerable .308 Winchester (7.62x51mm NATO) cartridge has been used for decades by everyone from casual plinkers at the range, to Special Forces units around the world, and during that time it has served admirably in every capacity imaginable.

    Now however, there are many who would tell you that the legendary .308 is a fading star, soon to be replaced by relative newcomers that promise better ballistics, more stability at range, or lighter recoil.

    .260 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08...surely these are the rounds that our children and grandchildren will be using over the overrated and out-of-date .308, right?

    Wrong.  These modern cartridges have their place to b

  9. Top 50 Blogs for Gun Enthusiasts

    In today’s divisive political climate, few issues are as contentious as those relating to Second Amendment rights. Convoluted legislation and state-specific legal differences make the topic of gun possession a hot button for folks on both ends of the barrel.

    As a resource devoted to the principle that every patriot has a God-given right to defend country, family and oneself with firearms, we also believe that without access to ammunition, there would be no reason to own guns, thus our mission, selling high-quality ammunition at affordable prices, is our priority.

    Whether you’re a member of the law enforcement community, a recreational or competitive shooter, it’s important to stay in the loop about guns, gear, laws, and training. One of the best ways to do that is by frequenting relevant blogs. We
