    Some of the world's finest side-by-sides are made in England and Scotland. The British are a nation of shotgunners, so it is no surprise that the shotgun reached its highest level of perfection there under the patronage of its wealthy aristocrats. The classic game gun is a 12-bore side-by-side double weighing between 6 and 7 pounds with a straight stock, splinter fore-end, and a whopping-big price tag that puts off the uninformed. Americans question the high price and insist that they can kill just as many birds with a cheap gun. Well, they can't kill as many birds with a...

    "The people will demonstrate on Saturday" Maxime Nicolle speaks for the "yellow vests" in Versailles, France 12/13/2018 Even before Tuesday's terrorist attack in Strasbourg, the call was out for the next phase of the 'yellow vests' protest on Saturday December 15th. In the aftermath of the attack, France's Justice Minister said that it was time to end the protests in light of what happened in Strasbourg. But there were questions and controversy over the government's tactics, which presents a message saying that since President Macron's speech on Monday offering concessions and the Tuesday terrorist attack, it is time for the...

    Chambered in .223 Rem./5.56 NATO, the Snake SBR was created by Armos Gulan from Israel. The reason for such an extreme design lies in the challenge that the Israeli tactical team had face while encountered in their missions. That is the window of opportunity to lay down more lead towards a target within that milisecond. For instances some scenario such as spotting a target crossing a path or goes through a window. So how do you deliver the maximum amount of fire power at that instances? Use the Snake, this was the main reason for its creation. Theres also the...
  • Get Ready: With Democrats in Power, 2019 Will Be the Year of Gun Confiscation

    A court recently upheld New Jerseys ban on firearm magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but state officials have steadfastly refused to inform the citizens just how they intend to enforce that law. But the fact that it was upheld and coupled with news in a growing list of other states not to mention the noise from Washington DC proves that the Democrats intend to make 2019 the year of gun confiscation and ending the Second Amendment in every way without saying it openly. As to New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy signed the ban on extended magazines in...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 12/10/2018 | R Reed
    The "Ruby" pistol is the result of France's desperate need for arms in the early days of the Great War. By 1915, much of the French industrial heartland was under German control, and what remained under allied control was producing critically needed material such as rifles, machine guns, and artillery. As the conflict grew beyond even the most pessimistic expectations, the sheer volume of troops sent into battle literally exhausted the meager stores of small arms. To meet this rising demand for pistols for the trenches, the French contracted with the Spanish firm of Gabilondo y Urresti-Eibar for their Ruby...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden gave the strongest signal yet that he is considering a presidential campaign in 2020, describing himself as the most qualified person to fill the role. Ill be as straight with you as I can, Biden told a Montana crowd as he promoted his memoir, Promise Me, Dad. I think Im the most qualified person in the country to be president. It is an unmistakable shot across the bow, staking his claim to the Democrat partys nomination.

    THE GERMAN MAUSER KARABINER 98 KURZ, or K98k, is a true phoenix from the ashes of WWI, and despite the challenges faced by its creators, it fulfilled its purpose during WWII, is respected by gun enthusiasts around the world and has served as a stable platform for the development of modern rifles for almost 100 years. After the Great War, nations around the world realized the need to improve standard military rifles. American military planners studied the effectiveness of bolt-action repeating rifles, and concluded there was a need to develop a semiautomatic infantry rifle. The Germans, on the other hand,...

    Hours pass, and in the fading light you glass across the sage into the glare of the sun. Catching some movement your eyes focus on an ear flick; low and behold its a shooter buck. Hes far, but your heart is soaring with the hopes of success as you range him before he feeds out of view into the dark timber just a couple dozen yards away. At 460 yards, your .300 WSM is more than capable, but you can't lay down in the high sage, and the only shooting support you have is your pack and a set of...

    For The Quiet Shooter I believe that Browning had the traits of all great inventors. First, they are brilliant in that they can conceive an idea, then picture it and finally have the tenacity to stay with the concept until the job is done. Whether its Eli Whitney working on the cotton gin was also involved in mass producing firearms for the government, by the way or Thomas Edison, who fooled around with that light bulb. Lets talk about L.P. Brezny. Brezny is one of those guys who is hard to put a handle on. He hails from...

    Macron held a news conference in Buenos Aires where he said that there was no cause justified the looting of stores, attacking the security forces, or torching of property. Macron totally fails to comprehend that the violence is building frustration that historically is necessary to mature into a revolution. This is not a political movement. This is economically driven. The police said that violent far-right and far-left groups had infiltrated the yellow vests movement in a desperate effort to call them extremists. These protests began as a backlash against Macrons fuel tax hikes, but have tapped into a growing resentment...

    The Fed has done all they can to derail Republican Presidents for the past half century. President George H. W. Bush blamed the Fed for his loss in 1992. George H. W. Bush believed balancing the budget was his top priority, but his efforts to do so were constantly hindered by his no new taxes pledge. He held conservative views on government spending and believed that issues like homelessness and crime were important, but that the government should not use more tax money to fix such issues. Bush agreed to a budget agreement in 1990 which looked to the long-run...

    Like many of you, I am much better at just doing stuff than getting ready for it. I guess it's all about being prepared, and I was never the sharpest Boy Scout in the troop, or something like that. But some things are too important to not prepare for. Depending on what and where you hunt with your scattergun, your season is either coming up fast, or is already here. September is often the last call for getting shotguns and other paraphernalia ready, so let's talk about what you need to do to get out there and sling some...

    Pedersoli calls this side-by-side their "Bohemienne," or Bohemian. Comparing it to the standards of today, this shotgun is definitely nonconformist, and it is good enough that we can refer to it as being somewhat irregular. It is a cut above many others, and for me it is delightful in many ways, especially with its double outside hammers. THE PEDERSOLI LA BOHEMIENNE is a striking piece, to say the least. It is a classically styled, double-barreled 12-gauge shotgun with double outside hammers. The 28-inch browned barrels have 3-inch chambers, and are equipped with interchangeable chokes at the muzzles. The pistol grip...

    Sybil was the first major book to tie "MPD" to child abuse. Published in 1973, it was followed by a compelling 1976 movie. Sybil played a substantial role in the cultural and psychiatric tsunami, later known as the "false" or "recovered" memory debate. According to author Debbie Nathan "In the entire history of Western civilization, there had been less than 200 cases over a period of centuries. But after the book and film, suddenly there were hundreds and thousands. And by the late 1980s there were 40,000 cases diagnosed in the United States alone." See Sybil Exposed
  • House Democrats Ban Ideological Chick-Fil-A From Their Thanksgiving-Type Meal

    House Democrats hosting a Thanksgiving-type meal for their first caucus meeting reportedly banned ideological food such as Chick-fil-A. Rachael Bade, a congressional reporter with Politico and a CNN analyst, revealed what was strictly verboten in the meeting room where the majority typically meets. Its difficult to ascertain from her message as to whether or not it was the Democrat lawmakers who shunned the Chick-fil-A/ideological food menu, or if it was an observation from Bade who then labeled it as such. Either way, its absurd to think that chicken now represents an ideology either to the House Democrats or a member...

    Fifty-one years ago this month, the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Separate) fought in close quarters and uphill through deep foliage to take Hill 875 in what became known as the Battle of Dak To. The 173rd Airborne Brigade had already seen action before moving inland to South Vietnams Central Highlands in early November of 1967. This support included a role in Operation Junction City in the spring, as well as a search-and destroy (S&D) mission in the vicinity of Tuy Ho on the south-central coast. The 173rd was assigned to Dak To after intelligence reports indicated that North Vietnamese Army (NVA)...

    When the chips are down and without a moments notice what bug out guns, pocket rifles or survival rifles do you have? These rifles fits the SHTF scenario where you need a compact rifle that can be broken down and stored in your day pack, truck or even in your hidden cache. Just so you know, these survival rifles were talking about is not a personal defense gun like the AKs or fully equipped M4 (AR-15). Our main goal is about taking this out to the field when needed during a dire situation to hunt small game for survival. There...

In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day. ** In Montana Senator Jon Tester who was behind on election day had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points. ** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night ** In Florida Democrats have discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day!

    Democrat lawyers have descended on Florida in order to steal the Senate and Governor elections from Republicans. Hillary Clinton, Perkins Coie and other DC swamp dwellers are now working round the clock to install their radical left-wing candidates. In a series of urgent tweets, Senator Rubio said late Tuesday evening that Democrat lawyers are actually asking a judge to change Florida election laws AFTER the election in order to steal the Senate and Governor seats.
