Gonna Keep My Skillet Greasy, If I Can: Friday Thoughts on a Theme
Whew, it’s been a hot summer so far. At the time of this writing, mid-July, we’ve been completely dry for the month which is rare but not unheard of. August is traditionally the most miserable of months for us Arkansans. That being said, the one and only slight benefit to this oppressive heat has been the lack of humidity. This has helped to keep the heat index more or less on par with the actual temperature whereas in a typical Arkansas summer, the humidity works to add 5-8 degrees of perceived misery to the great outdoors temperatures around the clock.
It's Never Too Early
I know, I know, it’s still July, super hot everywhere, and deer season is, seemingly, a long way off, but time does fly and the fall hunting season will be here before you know it. With the roster of states allowing big bore PCP and air archery hunting growing every year, there is likewise increasing demand for heavy duty air gun products. If you’ve been on the fence about getting into big bore air, now is the time to get equipped and familiar with the gear so you can get in the field and represent the airgun hunting community.
Student Air Rifle Program (SAR) Expands to Kentucky
The Student Air Rifle Program (SAR) is excited to expand to Kentucky. A total of 17 individuals were certified as SAR Basic Air Riflery Instructors (BARI) during the BARI training workshop in Nicholasville, KY occurring on June 30, 2022.
Experiencing the Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge
In June I had the opportunity to travel to Provo, Utah, to shoot the Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge. RMAC was held at the Garth Killpack Shooting Range in Hobble Creek Canyon. I loved being on the range and learning about the different airgun competitions. I was signed up for 100-yard Benchrest, other Umarex shooters were signed up for that and the other competitions like Precision Marksman Challenge, Speed Challenge, and Big Bore Slug Challenge.
First-timer's trip to RMAC
Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect. While I’m a lifelong hunter and have enjoyed plinking Coke cans in the backyard with an old pellet rifle for decades, competitive airgun shooting was a foreign concept to me - aside from what I have caught on TV at some odd hour of the night during the Olympics. If you’ve never delved into the competitive side of airgun shooting, here’s what it’s like at RMAC.
Using Air to Introduce Shooting
About once a month my husband and I would go out to dinner with some of his work friends, they all shared common interests such as liking the same shows, movies, and games. Most of them had gone to the range together to shoot on the weekends. One of my husband's friends, John (not his real name), was NOT a fan of firearms. I’m not entirely sure why but I believe that the dislike might have stemmed from his political views.
