And, while his .44 Remington Magnum can still be a formidable tool in the deer woods, it and other powerhouses like it, take some getting used to. Here is a look at some considerations for handgun hunting deer. Read more
The world-wide firearm manufacturer has been adding employees over the past four years and expects the market to allow it to continue hiring. They need more room and have plenty of options.
The link has the success story never to be told by the media. It’s a lot more riveting to show lazy whiners protesting, because they are not given enough of what ever their self-serving interests demand.
Here, instead, we have Americans prospering in spite of what left-leaning gun grabbers have wrought upon their industry in the way of burdensome regulations. And, I must add that Sig’s firearms are legendary and it is the free market that recognizes its quality.
BELLEVUE, WA – Wednesday’s revelation by Gallup that a record low number of Americans support a legal ban on handgun possession by private citizens demonstrates a positive change in the public attitude about personal protection and the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment Foundation said.

Wixom, MI – The profile length of the new Trijicon SRS™ is short and the advanced list of features is long, as the innovative products continue from Trijicon. The new Trijicon SRS (Sealed Reflex Sight) is a reflex-type sight with a unique optical design, housed in a body length of only 3.75 inches that virtually eliminates the “tube-effect” common with other, competitive red dot sights. The result – a field of view that essentially provides no obstruction to shooters.

In the case, Jennings v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the NRA and a group of responsible young adults argued that since 18-20 year olds are considered adults for virtually every other purpose, such as voting and military service, adults in this age group should also be able to purchase handguns from licensed dealers.

Dean Heller (R-Nev.) plans to offer an amendment that would prohibit use of funds for a new and unauthorized multiple sales reporting plan proposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
The Heller amendment would prevent ATF from circumventing the will of Congress by centralizing records of thousands of Americans’ firearm purchases, without any legal authority. Read more
