So it’s time to actually go and burn some ammo! If you are an old hand or a brand new shooter, there are some things to know and then use whether practicing or competing. I carry a gun on duty every day and practice and qualify regularly, but I asked some of our Rangemasters what a shooter can do to get the most out of your time while on the range. More

Yup, time to look at the most intimidating short range firearm out there, the shotgun.
Praised for balance, cussed for recoil, it is all these things and more. Let’s look at the 4 sizes we have first: the 20, 16, 12 and 10 Gauges. For those of you new to shotguns, the smaller the gauge number, the bigger the barrel. The 10 gauge was a very rare bird back in our era except in custom guns and it is a very heavy recoiling round in today’s loadings, so it’s really not one to consider as the other 3 are much, much better suited for us.

Hello again. Pull up a chair, get comfy and we are going to look at one of history’s great guns and discuss why it might be the gun for you. It is officially known as the Government Model of 1911 .45 Automatic Pistol. It was the United States’ official sidearm from 1911 until placed in reserve in 1990, and has been reissued to some of our troops since then! It has been praised, cussed, abused and gussied up in every way imaginable and keeps earning it’s keep today. More
