One of the Best Spotting Scopes for $500 — Vortex Diamondback 20-60×60

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 15:49

The Diamondback promises big performance in a small package, but did Vortex deliver on this economical spotting scope? Hunting the spacious prairie of South Dakota often mean that the game you're after can be miles away. Because of that, good glass is a necessity to see if the pursuit is worth the effort of closing the distance. In these situations, a spotting scope shines when your binoculars have reached the end of their rope. I used the Vortex Diamondback 20x60x60 for a season’s worth of tags in the Rushmore State, chasing whitetails in the southeast, waterfowl in the northeast, mulies in the northwest, and elk in the southwest. It quickly became a favorite piece of gear that made an appearance on every hunt.

Lucikly, DU-Ha has a solution.

Driving Boars in Poland — Testing Norma’s New Strike Line

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 14:38

Hunting styles vary greatly across our country, with spot-and-stalk in the west, sitting on stands in the east, corn feeders in the south and even deer run with dogs in certain states. Travel outside of our borders, and you can find an even wider variety of methods, not to mention specific customs, traditions, and expectations. What may seem natural to you or I can seem completely against the grain in a foreign land.

American Tactical German Sport’s 9mm MP40 — A Tribute to WWII

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 13:14

The Nazi’s inability to conquer Europe wasn’t their only failure of the Second World War. They also failed to invade Russia, exercise basic humanity, march-like normal people, and a host of other blunders. Suffice it to say that in 1,000 years they won’t be remembered as successful, virtuous, or honorable.

The New King of Polymer Guns: SIG P320 X5 Crusader Edition

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 11:43

It is not often I find a firearm that actually changes my core preferences. Being a soldier is a strange mix of knowing when and where to adapt, without falling prey to every new whiz-bang improvement that comes down the line. It's safe to say the SIG Sauer P320 X5 has me trading in my other favorite polymer pistols.

NEW: NON-NFA Shockwave now 20 Gauge— Mossberg’s Ultimate Truck Gun

Gun Reports - Special Reports - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 11:17

One of the hottest firearms introductions of 2017, announced at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, was undoubtedly Mossberg’s 590 Shockwave, which was originally chambered in 12 gauge. Right on its heels came Remington with the 870 Tac-14, another wildly popular defense shotgun, and yet another confirmation of the worth of a compact shotgun that can be had without climbing a Mount Everest of bureaucratic red tape.

Arizona: Signature Gathering Underway For Hunting Ban Initiative

NRA-ILA News - Fri, 01/19/2018 - 12:50
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and their front-group “Arizonans for Wildlife” are currently gathering signatures for a ballot initiative that would ban the hunting and trapping of mountain lions and bobcats in the state.  This misguided initiative ignores the fact that hunting is a necessary tool used by the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD) as part of their science-based, comprehensive game management plan.  Maintaining targeted predator populations across the state helps to ensure that prey populations, such as deer, bighorn sheep, and antelope are kept at healthy levels.

New Hampshire-based gun accessory maker Samson Manufacturing added a new option for the Smith & Wesson Shield pistol, a new pocket compensator.

Sampson’s new Pocket Comp is designed to fit 1/2×28 threaded barrels, use factory recoil spring, and operates using a proprietary barrel nut as an attachment point.

According to the announcement, the system allows for “a rock-solid interface with no chance of marring the barrel threads.” When the Comp is not in use, the barrel nut can act as a thread protector. The device is contoured to match the slide, making it look like an extension of the barrel rather than an add on.

“Not only is the Comp small enough for pocket carry, the attachment system is unlike anything currently in use on a handgun” said Dave Biggers, a Samson spokesman.

The Pocket Comp is machined from aircraft-grade 7075 aluminum and mil-std hard coat anodized for durability. The devices sizes in 1.15 inches long, .85 inches wide, and weighs 1.2 ounces. MSRP is $64.99.

Atlas Gunworks arrives on scene with a new pistol designed for duty and self-defense, introducing the Titan Operator.

Chambered in 9mm, the Titan Operator is based on Atlas’ 2011 Titan competition pistol but with some tweaks to give it a more tactical feel. Packed with tactical style features, Atlas lists a DLC coated tri-topped slide, 5-inch KKM bull barrel, PT aluminum grip, tactical rear sight and a railed frame among the tactical upgrades on the Titan pistol.

“Atlas understands that competition guns aren’t the best choice for military, law enforcement or self-defense,” the company offered in a statement. So, when the tactical team at a west coast sheriff’s department requested 9mm Titans for duty, the Titan Operator was born.”

Boasting a 19+1 capacity, the Titan Operator sports a trigger pull set slightly heavier than competition guns — averaging 3 to 3.5-pounds. The gun also is equipped with heavy springs to ensure proper ammo feeding.

Consumers can expect a waiting period of just a few months, as Atlas says current ship times are sliding in under the three month mark. Though no specific pricing information has been offered, the standard Titan model comes in at $3,599.

Mission First Tactical brings a new tactical pistol grip, the Engage EPG27, to its existing lineup of pistol grips designed for the AR-15, M16 platform.

Proving that the industry can always use one more grip, especially if it’s tactical, the Engage EPG27 aims to set itself apart from other pistol grips by offering a more positive grip surface and better overall controls, says MFT.

The Engage EPG27 grip boasts a texturized design in addition to a finger swell and grooved back straps. The combination of texture and grooves delivers a positive surface, according to the company, who says the pairing improves overall control.

“Current handgun pistol grips were carefully considered and reviewed to create a modern, full-sized AR pistol grip that offers positive support and control for one handed operations,” Mission First Tactical said in a statement. “The new pistol grip increases operator comfort and performance while allowing the operator to gain more control during reloading and firing.”

Touting a lightweight design, the pistol grip tips scales at just 0.15-ounces. The full size pistol grip stands 1.2-inches tall with a width measuring 1.34-inches and an overall length of 2.5-inches. Adding a splash of color, MFT supplies foliage green, grey, and scorched dark earth in addition to standard black.

The latest Engage is available from MFT with a starting price of $19.99.
