Now Colt is offering yet another option for enthusiasts looking for that robust and well-fielded platform – the Colt Combat UnitTM carbine, featuring Colt’s new mid-length gas system.
The Colt Combat UnitTM carbine offers many of the features you love about the Colt M4 platform, but now Colt is introducing its first production mid-length gas system. “Producing a mid-length gas system was the logical next-step for us, and it’s long overdue,” said Justin Baldini, Director of Product Marketing for Colt. “Shooters will find that by moving the gas block closer to the muzzle as this mid-length gas system does, the felt recoil is more constant with what is fielded by our troops carrying a 14.5″ barrel M4.” Read more

A Connecticut Superior Court judge today decided in favor of the Remington Outdoor companies, Camfour Holding and Riverview Sales and struck the amended case brought by some families of the victims in the Sandy Hook School tragedy based on allegations of negligent entrustment.
In the decision, the judge said that the plaintiffs’ allegations did not meet the narrow exception for “negligent entrustment” allowed in the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) nor did it meet this standard under Connecticut law.
“The court ruled as it should in this case,” said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Larry Keane. “We are again reminded of the bulwark that the PLCAA provides the industry against unreasonable litigation of this type even as Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has repeatedly called for its repeal.”

Successful hunters have been on hundreds of deer hunts, but every hunter knows that only a handful of hunts make meaningful memories. For example, the first successful deer hunt is burned into the memory of every hunter. The hunt that produced their “buck of a lifetime” is also unforgettable.
The ultimate unforgettable memory- the first time a young hunter – son, daughter, grandchild, child of a family friend -kills their first deer.
Until you do that, you only think you know all the things that can go wrong on a hunt. One of the most discouraging things that can go wrong for a young hunter is missing their first shot or worst wounding the game when the big moment finally arrives.
While nothing can be done about buck fever in a young hunter, the chances of a miss can be vastly reduced if the young hunter has a stable rest for the shot.
