    A man is facing serious backlash after proudly posting photos of his daughter taking a bite of warm deer heart as part of a hunting tradition. On NZ Woman Hunters Facebook page, hunter Johnny posted a photo of his daughter, "little pink ninja princess Chloe", taking a bite of a deer heart straight from the chest of a deer she killed. This submission has been taken off Facebook. Johnny submission states he is a proud dad and that his daughter successfully shot and killed a young stag using his shoulder as a leaning rest.

    Which is faster and more accurate? Larry Vickers of Vickers Tactical and his buddy Dave Royer were out testing a firearm myths whether dual-wielding versus using sight alignment with a single pistol is better. Seen all the time in the movies Dave and Larry are out to show you what really happens when you fire two pistols at the same time. So they set up a couple of test drills one is stationary and the other shooting on the move. Stationary Drill They start the test with stationary shooting at multiple targets.

    The folks from B&T AG formerly known as BrŁgger & Thomet AG of Switzerland created this super fast magazine loader for the MP9 and HK MP5 which shoots the 9mm rounds, but before you get it for your Glocks, read this first. A loader like this WILL NOT work with a single-position-feed magazine like a Glock (or pretty much any pistol) magazine. It will ONLY work with a double-position-feed magazine like most SMGs and rifles use. See the video here on how fast you can reload your magazine here.

    Spear hunting sounds primitive but lately has come under fire from some who feel it is too brutal. Spear hunter Michel Blanchett has been spear hunting for 7 years. He claims this primitive way of hunting is the most ethical as it pits you against your game at close range with one throw to get your game. This type of hunting is for the elite hunter This allows game to have a better chance against a hunter than it would against a long distance rifle shooter or even a modern archery armed hunter.

    Modern 12-gauge Shotgun Slugs Can Be An Excellent Choice For Self-Defense Distances And Beyond Shotguns are a perennial home defense favorite. They are generally inexpensive, very common and perceived as being simple to operate. Nearly every gun-owning household has at least one smoothbore. But, since research and anecdotal evidence point towards the relative ineffectiveness of birdshot against large intruders, buckshot is typically used to deliver multiple simultaneous impacts while adding some margin for aiming error. Buckshot, from .35 caliber 000 to .24 caliber No. 4, works fairly well on opponents up close and in the open, but doesn’t penetrate cover...

The Glock 20 holds 15 rounds versus five or six for a .44 or .41 magnum revolver.† In this case near Homer, Alaska, on the Kenai peninsula, it did the job in stopping a charging brown bear sow.

Watch Jerry Miculek take the ordinary gat and turn it into a mini Gatling Gun! Complete with mini crank and all, able to fire almost 700 Rounds per minute on a standard semi-auto AR-15. After watching Jerry shoot, it obviously doesn't look like a practical way of shooting and handling the AR, obviously its more for shoot and laughs. There are...

    Meteor showers are associated with streams of debris left behind by comets. The Perseids are dust bits from Comet Swift-Tuttle and are famous for creating bright fireballs and elevated meteor activity for nearly two weeks in mid-August. This year it is predicted the shower will peak on the overnight of Thursday, Aug. 11, to Friday, Aug. 12. It is predicted to be twice the usual intensity. Thatís because Earth will pass through the center of the debris stream rather than the grazing encounter we experience in most years. The display should be well worth the loss of a few hoursí...

    I'm convinced that the Ruger 10/22 is the most popular .22 riÔ¨āe of all time. Not only is it a great little riÔ¨āe right out of the box, but there are probably a million aftermarket items available that enhance its functionality even further, making it the most ¬ďtrick-out-able¬Ē gun on the market. Not bad for a riÔ¨āe that Ô¨Ārst hit the market in 1964. The 10/22 became my go-to riÔ¨āe pretty quickly. How could I not love it?

    Early in the 20th century one of the weakness observed by an inventor named Harald Sunngard in automatic pistols was that during reloads while under stress were often bungled by shooters. This would leave them vulnerable to return fire without being able to shoot back. This Norwegian inventor came up with a solution. There were two parts to this, the first was to use a big magazine, second was to store a spare magazine right in the well of the pistol for immediate use. The grip of the pistol needed to be big enough to store two identical magazines. One...

But the reality is that hunting coyotes isnít going to make a dent in decreasing their population due too many coyotes out there. Some hunters and land owners have talked of trapping, localized areas have had some successes. Trapping is still hard due to resource, man power and gasoline. Someone has to get out there and check the traps in the areas. Despite the efforts our...

    The AR57 Is An Excellent High-capacity Yet Affordable Alternative For Self-defense and Varmint Hunting. The AR57 (also known as the AR Five Seven) upper receiver for the AR-15 has two claims to fame: a 50-shot capacity and downward ejection for ambidextrous operation. Operating by simple blowback, this upper is available in 6-inch pistol and 16-inch riÔ¨āe versions, with the latter being reviewed here. Manufactured by the eponymous AR57 LLC, and chambered in 5.7x28mm, this upper is less powerful than the standard 5.56mm version, but it has certain tangible advantages, including reduced muzzle blast, a high practical rate of Ô¨Āre, nonexistent...

    Depending on what the AR's or Mini's are used for, we can all agree that the AR's is better for most situations. (SHTF, home defense, hunting, etc..) But, if we talk talk about the costs to have either a low end or tricked out piece of hardware, I guess the discussions can go on almost forever with the die hard ARís and Mini-14 folks. Or, better yet which one is most accurate? Here's what some are saying from Reddit and AR15Forum:Poison_Tequila: the truth is a little different. An AR can be picky or reliable, a mini is probably more accurate...

That is why it is baffling that Ryan has failed to bring regulatory reform legislation that recently passed the Senate to the floor of the House for a vote. The tale is one of catfish and courage.

    On Tuesday, the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) formally announced the removal of the lesser prairie chicken from the endangered species protection list. They did not take this step voluntarily; FWS lost a court case last year which ordered the agency to remove the bird from the list. However, even as they complied with the courtís order, the FWS issued a threat that the agencyís land grab under the guise of conservation was not over. In the words of Director Dan Ashe, ďResponding to this court ruling by removing the bird from the Federal List does not mean we are...

    You read right, this beast of a shotgun has 6 barrels and holds 48 rounds at a time. The ultimate zombie apocalypse weapon. Triple double is usually a term thrown around in basketball. Not so much in shotgun lingo. Double barrel shotguns are awesome. But you know what they are not as awesome as? A triple double shotgun. The guys from Demolition Ranch brings us one of the coolest and craziest guns you will ever see. Sure it is super heavy and quite uncomfortable and to be honest, not practical whats so ever. But that doesnít matter because it is...

    Everybody has an AR because of its reliability, durability and flexibility. Besides owning a shotgun an AR is the next best thing for a home defense. This video highlights Richard Nance (GunsandAmmo Editor) and Dave Spaulding (Handgun Combatives) discussing tactics and techniques using an AR-15 which any lawful citizen can learn. They talk about best ways to enter and clear a room while not extending your AR out there. But if you do there are some weapon retention methods that can be used to retain your AR. See the video here. How bout you all, do you use your AR-15...

    Blast off! Watch as this squirrel leaps from tree and escapes from being this hawkís lunch. Many scenarios in life require the fight or flight instinct. It is pretty clear which one this squirrel chose in his near death experience. This brown squirrel went from being dead meat to a flying squirrel in a matter of seconds. Like something out of a movie, it looks as if the squirrel hit Inspector Gadgetís ejector button as he launches from the greenery and into the blue sky. The squirrel lives to see another day and is telling all his squirrel buddies what...

    Check out this bear cub fight a cop. Luckily for this guy, this bear is just a cub. Bears when fully grown is best not to mess with one. Well that is unless it is a pet bear cub. This little bear has plenty of fight in it even though it is still pint sized. Give it a few months and this police officer would have no chance in hand to hand combat with a determined bear. While we do not know any specifics on this video, we do know this little bear is not to be messed with. Who...

    Islamist Cleric Attacks Pokemon-Go ^ | July 19, 2016 | The Common Constitutionalist
    This year, February 27, Pokťmon (pocket monster) turned 20. It was created by Japanese game designer Satoshi Tajiri for Nintendo as a video game for the old Gameboy handheld video game platform. My sons still own theirs. It was introduced to the United States in 1998. Nintendo was quick to capitalize on its popularity. The video game soon spawned a celebrated trading card game, books, movies and a television series. The tag line of Pokťmon is: ďGotta Catch Em All.Ē Since then, at least a few of the Pokťmon characters have gained international recognition. One of the most recognized characters,...

    Longtime hog nemesis Brian "Pigman" Quaca shows off his new toy from Savage Arms a .300 Win Mag by flattening a 270+ pound wild boar on this hunt. This video highlights the action, though the video clip doesnít show it, Pigman was actually busy playing on his phone and didn't notice the hog come out at first (we've all been there before, right?). Fortunately for him, the camera guy was on his game and got his attention. At that point, it was just a matter of putting his round on target, which he did like a true professional using his...
