Getting Old and Still Seeing the Sights

Posted by Dick Jones on Oct 16, 2014 11:23:00 AM


Some think that life during your youth is better than it is once you gain maturity. I am not one of them. I’ve enjoyed life much more now that I have a few miles on my odometer and chips in my paint. I may not be as strong or as fast now, but I’m smarter and I know how to live. There is a down side to having some vintage on your label, though, and it relates to vision. It happens to all of us provided we live long enough. Our eyes age and the fluid in them gets a little cloudy, the muscles that shape the eye to focus get a little weaker, and the iris, the aperture that adjusts for optimum vision in different lighting conditions gets lazy.

A Quick Tour of the Beretta ARX100

Posted by Tom McHale on Oct 9, 2014 11:43:00 AM


I've never watched the Transformers movies, but if my understanding is correct, those flicks were about 1974 AMC Gremlins morphing into deep fried banana splits, thereby earning free admission to the Texas State Fair. Or something along those lines.

Even if I'm a bit off in my understanding of the Transformers plot, you have to admit the idea of effortless transformation on demand is a pretty cool thing. Politicians do it all the time based on poll numbers and density of cameras within 25 yards, so why shouldn’t rifles be able to perform the same feat?

Questions You Should Ask When Booking A Guided Hunt (Part 1)

Posted by Mia Anstine on Oct 8, 2014 11:26:00 AM


Many hunters have bucket lists of items they would like to harvest. The challenge in checking animals off the list comes in assessing the cost to hunt said animals and having the time to sufficiently scout the area prior to the hunt. Fortunately, for some, hunters can look to a guide or outfitter to do the behind the scenes scouting without using up valuable vacation days.

Gun Practice? Or Plinking?

Posted by Dick Jones on Oct 6, 2014 11:12:00 AM


Practice or Plinking? To get real benefit, gun practice must be structured.

In almost every sport, there are those who seem to work hard and yet they never seem to get real results. When I was a younger man, I loved riding dirt bikes. It was challenging, I liked the mechanical aspect of tuning and maintaining my bike, and I enjoyed the company of the other guys who were into riding dirt. I had a very good motorcycle, excellent equipment, and I rode quite a lot, but I never was better than a mediocre rider.

9 Tips For A Better Dove Hunting Season

Posted by Dick Jones on Oct 4, 2014 10:45:00 AM


My favorite way to kick off the hunting season is a dove hunt. My very first wingshooting experience was a dove hunt with a 16 gauge single barrel and a tobacco field. I think I managed to put three doves on the ground with two boxes of shotgun shells. At the end of the afternoon, I had a sore shoulder and a love for the fast flying birds that fly so hard they squeak.

Conversations about self-defense often end with heated debates about concealed carry. What type of gun? What caliber? How should it be carried? All of these are personal choices. Yet some opinionated experts are all too eager to share their expertise, especially on one specific and highly contentious issue: what is the best handgun for women to carry?

Impressions On The Beretta Cx4 Storm Carbine

Posted by William Starnes on Sep 30, 2014 3:02:00 PM


I have wanted a Beretta Cx4 Storm carbine since they were first announced years ago. As a Beretta fan and owner of a 96 Elite II, it just made sense to me that I should buy one. I was intrigued by the thought of having a carbine that used the same magazines and ammo as the pistol I carried. As a police officer, I also considered the possibilities of using one as a patrol rifle in place of the standard 12GA shotgun.
