The Wily North American Whistle Pig
I don’t want this to be a Dr. Phil article but have you ever sat down and thought about why you enjoy getting out hunting, fishing and backpacking? There’s something rewarding about getting outdoors, living off the land and feeding your family. But, it’s also a good excuse to get out and enjoy God’s creation.
Practical BB Gun 101
Needless to say, ammunition has skyrocketed in the past few years, and that’s only if you are lucky enough to find what you are looking for. Couple that with busier than usual ranges and practice starts to feel more like a chore than a hobby. Those that don’t want to put up with it have an option that has been there all along, except now with enhanced realism. For those that missed the title, yes, I’m talking about BB guns.
Which Air Rifle is Right For Me?
The world of airgunning has never been more diverse. Seriously, there are all kinds of air guns that didn’t exist a few years ago, or if they did exist, they were the playthings of the wealthy or used only for sanctioned competition. The air rifle can still do what it always has done, but it can do other things, too. In this growing sea of airguns and categories of airguns, a shooter can get lost in all the fluff. In this blog entry we are going to look at the various categories and explore a few examples of each to help you decide what format will best fit your needs.
New For 2021 Feature: The Smith & Wesson M29
I suppose that “wheelgun Wednesday” is the most appropriate day of the week to write an airgun blog on the coolest revolver we’ve ever made. Bold claim? Yes. One of our license partners, Smith & Wesson, has been the go-to manufacturer of high quality revolvers since the 1850s. In a mere 30 years they will be celebrating 200 years of the S&W brand! That is quite something else, indeed. In these passing generations of manufacturing and development Smith & Wesson has made some very enduring handguns. The venerable Model 10 comes to mind as the service weapon of choice for hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers going all the way back from the turn of the 19th century. Many agencies continued to use the Model 10 until the turn of the 20th century, too.
