10 Best Bolt-Action Rifles Of All Time

 

 

10 Best Bolt-Actions

 

 

 

” Hundreds of different bolt-action rifles originated in Europe and the United States, and today hunters have a wide selection of turnbolt rifles to meet every hunting situation and budget. The modern bolt-action rifle is lighter and more accurate than at any time in history. Over the past several years there have been numerous upgrades to bolt-action design in the form of synthetic stocks, improved finishes and better machining, but today’s rifles remain very much true to original designs.

  A few bolt-action designs stand out as the best in history. Some have a reputation for rock-solid dependability, some have become hunting field favorites, and others have revolutionized bolt gun design. Certain guns, such as the Winchester Model 70, have been the basis for a number of other, later designs that have also been successful. Others, such as the Remington Model 700, have become so widely accepted by shooters and hunters that you’ll find one in virtually every hunting camp in the country. However, all of these guns, have earned a place in history as the best bolt guns ever created.

  Here’s a look at the 10 best bolt guns of all time. Be sure to vote for your favorite and enter the debate! “

The World Just Got A New, Entirely 3D-Printed Metal Gun

 

 

 

” Just under a year ago, Solid Concepts gave the world its very first look at what a 3D-printed metal gun could do. And to everyone’s surprise, the thing actually worked. Now, the metal 3D-printing firm have put out the 1911’s fancier successor—complete with Declaration of Independence inscription and all.”

” The original 1911 made waves when Solid Concepts released a video in which they successfully fired the pet project over 50 times. And this newest offering, dubbed the Reason, looks a hell of a lot more solid.”

   Here is a video from Solid Concepts that explains the manufacturing process used in the fabrication of the “Reason” and a wide array of other goods:

” More than anything, the added detail and inscriptions are a testament to how far the company’s sintering tech has come. Using a technique called direct metal laser sintering, Solid Concepts is able to 3D print the gun by melting metal powder with a laser. In other words, these things take far more know-how than the plastic versions that came before them. “

   … and here is a video of the predecessor of the “Reason” , Solid Concept’s , and the world’s , first all-metal 3D printed gun , the DMLS 1911 being test fired .

Guns OK In Nebraska Senior Photos If ‘Tasteful’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s a new twist on the guns-in-schools debate: A district in central Nebraska has told seniors it’s OK to pose with firearms in their senior portraits, which are taken off campus. The students in the Broken Bow district, however, have to abide by a few rules, reports the Omaha World-Herald: Gun photos must be “tasteful and appropriate,” which means no aiming at the camera and no photos that include an “animal in obvious distress.” “

1 Dead After NC Grandfather Fires Back At Trio In Attempted Rape Of Teen Granddaughter, Sheriff Says

 

 

 

 

 

” A grandfather shot back and is believed to have killed a suspect in a home-invasion and attempted rape of his teen granddaughter on Monday night, Robeson County Sheriff’s officials said.

  The grandfather was also shot – but  he also managed to shoot the 2 other suspects in the home-invasion and attempted rape, said Maj. Anthony Thompson with the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office.
  
  The incident started around 10 pm at a house on Yedda Road in Lumberton on Monday night when someone knocked on the home of the grandfather, his wife and their 19-year-old granddaughter, according to the sheriff’s office.

   Two of three men – all wearing black clothes, ski masks and gloves — stormed into the house and demanded money, officials said.

  The grandfather and his wife ended up in the back of the house and were directed at gunpoint to open a safe. The three men were all armed and tried to rape the teen girl, officials said.

  The 67-year-old grandfather managed to grab a gun and shot all three of the suspects. The suspects fired back and the grandfather was hit several times, deputies said.”

Backdoor Gun Control: D.C. Sets Impossible Hurdles For Carry Permits

 

 

DC CCW Conditions

 

 

” The District’s newly minted concealed carry laws require gun owners seeking permits to complete 18 hours of firearms training.

  One problem: As of Wednesday, the day before a court-ordered deadline for the permitting process to begin, no instructors had been approved to teach the compulsory course.

  The disparity is emblematic of the city’s reluctant scramble to comply with the July order that overturned the District’s ban on carrying handguns in public.

  The Metropolitan Police Department, working off legislation adopted by D.C. lawmakers last month, released the concealed carry applications on its website at about 7 p.m. Wednesday — hours before the stay of U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr.’s order was set to expire.

  The regulations firm up the details of the application process, including establishing a $75 cost to apply for a permit.

  But it’s unlikely anyone will be walking out of police headquarters with the license anytime soon.”

 

   No surprise here . As we predicted , the bureaucrats in power in DC will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into court , yet again , in order to be forced to restore the citizen’s God-given right to self-defense . They don’t work for the people , they work for the State . Always remember: “The State Is Not Your Friend”

Aimpoint Launches Affordable New ‘Carbine Optic’ Red Dot

 

 

 

” Aimpoint is getting into the entry-level market — entry level for Aimpoint, anyway — with its new ACO red dot sight. The ACO, or Aimpoint Carbine Optic, is tailored for the “black rifle” crowd, AR-15s in particular.

  The design draws on some of Aimpoints existing products, chiefly the Aimpoint PRO, the company’s previous entry-level optic, and delivers on the ruggedness and reliability the market has come to respect from Aimpoint, just at a more approachable price.

  With an MSRP of $393, the ACO is sure to be a hit with rifle owners of all stripes looking for a non-magnified optic. Realistically the sight will have a significantly lower retail price when it hits shelves later this October.

“ By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package,” Brian Lisankie, Aimpoint’s president, said in a press release. “

Girls Leading Way In New Gun Trend As Parents Tell Anti-Gun Lobby To Back Off

 

 

Elise Downing, Monica Woodhouse, and Erika Dwyer are all expert shooters at the Belmont G

 

 

Queensland schoolgirls are picking up guns in record numbers.

  Recreation and competition shooting associations are reporting a surge in junior members, particularly girls, a trend that is firing up Gun Control Australia which is pushing for a ban on under-18s handling firearms.

  The Sporting Shooters’ Association of Australia has several thousand Queensland children as members and president Geoff Jones reports a recent spike in girls’ involvement.

  There is a similar trend in competition shooting. In 2010, 18 per cent of Queensland Target Shooters juniors were female. This year one third are girls. In Queensland, kids aged 11 and over can obtain a minor’s gun license.

  Gun Control Australia has urged a Senate inquiry into firearms to lift the legal age to 18, a move that shooting bodies and parents warn will end Australia producing elite shooting champions.

“ The reason why so many parents are happy to have their kids involved is because they see the rigid safety protocol,” Mr Jones said. “We have a great reputation for safety in Australia and we are reaping the rewards of that in junior participation. There is only one live round in the gun, kids use age appropriate weapons – no semi-automatics – and there are step-by-step safety rules.”

  Jamie Webb, who coaches kids at national and state level in target shooting, said: “Anti-gun lobbyists will put an end to the country’s participation in the sport and it makes no sense. The levels of safety for our shooters is the best in the world and I know of no dangerous incidents.”

  Queensland Police confirmed 687 minors gun licenses were issued in the last year but Mr Webb says that is one tenth of the unlicensed kids who shoot at ranges.

The FBI’s Bogus Report On Mass Shootings

 

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s disheartening to see the FBI used to promote a political agenda, but that’s what we got with the bureau’s release last month of a study claim to show a sharp rise in mass shootings, a la Newtown, Conn.

  The FBI counted 160 “mass” or “active” shootings in public places from 2000 to 2013. Worse, it said these attacks rose from just one in 2000 to 17 in 2013. Media outlets worldwide gave the “news” extensive coverage.

  Too bad the study is remarkably shoddy — slicing the evidence to distort the results. In fact, mass public shootings have only risen ever so slightly over the last four decades.

  While the FBI study discusses “mass shootings or killings,” its graphs were filled with cases that had nothing to do with mass killings. Of the 160 cases it counted, 32 involved a gun being fired without anyone being killed. Another 35 cases involved a single murder.

  It’s hard to see how the FBI can count these incidents, which make up 42 percent of its 160 cases, as “mass killings.” They plainly don’t fit the FBI’s old definition, which required four or more murders, nor even its new one of at least three murders.

10 Common Concealed Carry Mistakes ( Video )

 

 

 

 

 

” None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes from time to time, it’s how we learn. However, making mistakes when concealing a firearm can have serious implications. Instead of making you learn by trial and error, I’ve compiled a list of 10 common mistakes so you don’t have to find out the hard way. Most of the mistakes I’ve listed are made by those still new to carrying concealed, but even those with years of experience can be guilty of making a couple of these mistakes from time to time.

 

1. HAVING THE MINIMUM REQUIRED TRAINING

  In many states, a hunter safety course is enough to qualify you for a concealed weapons license. However, these courses often focus solely on being safe with a rifle in the woods. Although it’s great to know you’re not allowed to shoot over a road the next time you go hunting, it doesn’t exactly prepare you to go out into the regular world and interact with others now that you all of a sudden have a gun on your hip.

  Even some classes that are specifically designed around qualifying you for a concealed weapons permit don’t do much in the way of preparing you. Do your research before choosing a class and find a reputable one that is more concerned with proper training rather than getting you out of the course as quickly as possible. The course concerned most about money will often go through some of the basics, have you shoot a few rounds, and send you on your way. You want a course that has instructors who are going to help you in every way possible to make sure you leave their class prepared.

  Finally, don’t think that just because you met the minimum requirements for a license you’re now ready to navigate every situation you find yourself in. A responsible person who carries concealed is constantly learning, both mentally and physically. As legendary football coach Bo Schembechler often said, “Every day you’re getting better or worse…you never stay the same”.

 

2. PRINTING/EXPOSING

  Printing, where the outline of your gun appears from pushing against your clothing and exposing a part of the gun are mistakes that often arise from complacency. When you first start carrying, often you’re so concerned about your gun showing in public you’ll do anything and everything to make sure it never happens. After carrying every day for years, it’s still a thought but you’re nowhere near as scared of it happening. Just take that extra second to make sure you’re not printing or going to expose your gun at some point.

  Honestly, most people are pretty ignorant to their surroundings anyways, but it certainly isn’t worth the trouble of someone freaking out if they do notice because you didn’t want to bother changing your 2 sizes too small shirt. Although some people are extremely concerned about printing, it’s not the end of the world if it happens at some point (although it may be illegal in some localities). It’s certainly not something to get into the habit of doing, but compared to exposing your gun, printing is nowhere near as big a concern. If your gun is exposed, you could find yourself in some serious hot water. The last thing you want to deal with is half the police station closing in on you with guns drawn because you bent over to pick something up and the lady behind you happened to notice your gun.

  Trust me, if someone sees your gun and they’re scared, the 911 call won’t be a rational explanation of what happened. Take your time to make sure you’re not printing or in danger of exposing your gun before you leave the house.”

Ruger AR-556 Modern Sporting Rifle: Ruger AR-15 On A Budget

 

 

8500-1-Mt92d8ha1p5g

 

 

 

 

” The company has now decided that the time is right to enter the entry level market with a basic M4/sporting carbine, the Ruger AR-556. With a MSRP of just $749 it undercuts even the cheapest Ruger Mini-14 by a significant margin, and is similar in both price and specifications to entry level AR15s from Ruger’s competitors.

  The Ruger AR-556 features the usual combination of A3 flat top-style upper receiver, nylon handguard, M4 stock and 16″ barrel. Ruger also adds their own ergonomic pistol grip, enlarged trigger guard, Ruger Rapid Deploy Rear Sight and their patent-pending easy-servicing barrel nut system.

Controversial Owner Declares Her Store A ‘Muslim-Free’ Zone; Find Out Her Reasoning

 

 

10492132_1644864639071124_8079314476166598335_n

 

 

 

” Of course, not all Muslims are violent and should not be treated as such. However, one store, The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas, has declared itself a “Muslim-free zone.”
  Citing safety concerns and an extensive history of violent actions taken by Muslims in the U.S. and abroad, range owner Jan Morgan posted on her website a ten-point explanation for her decision to ban Muslims from her establishment and clarification as to her supposed legal reasoning.
 
  Morgan claims that the ATF has asked her in the past to exercise judgment in refusing service to people who she feels might be unstable or a threat in general. This broad leeway, Morgan claims, offers her the authority to deny service broadly to Muslims. Bearingarms.com backs-up this assertion and notes, 

She brings up a very valid point that gun stores and ranges have both a legal and moral obligation to ensure the safety of their patrons. Because of this, they may refuse service to anyone they deem to be under the influence, mentally unstable, or otherwise a potential threat to themselves, or others. FFLs are afforded a great deal of latitude in this regard, as the federal government would rather err on the side of caution.” “

Third Suspect Sought In Deadly Gas Station Shooting In Canton

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Canton Police Department has released surveillance video and 911 calls connected to Monday night’s deadly robbery attempt at a Marathon gas station. Two of the suspects were killed, but one is still on the run.

  The video, which shows three men walking into the 9th Street SW gas station, was released at an 11 a.m. news conference.

  Police say two of the suspects, identified as Antonio Garcia, 23, and Ronnie Lawson, 21, were shot and killed by a clerk at the location.

  The shooting followed an attempted robbery and a scuffle with the clerk. 

  The clerk was shot in the hip and leg during the melee. His injuries are non-life-threatening. The gas station manager says the clerk is recovering well in the hospital.”

Federal Judge Rules DC Ban On Handguns Unconstitutional

 

 

 

 

” A federal judge on Saturday overturned Washington D.C.’s ban on carrying handguns outside the home, saying it was unconstitutional.

There is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” Judge Frederick Scullin said in an opinion.

” Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional,” he added in his 19-page ruling.

  The court ordered the city to allow residents to carry handguns outside their homes and to let non-residents carry them as well.”

Why The Salvo 12 Is The Most Important Suppressor Ever Made (VIDEO)

 

 

 

 

 

” Things have gotten pretty exciting lately with the announcement of the Salvo 12. Everyone, not just SilencerCo, is pretty wired about the concept of a suppressed shotgun. It’s been done before, but only by boutiques and never by anyone with the clout and standing that SilencerCo has in this industry.

  SilencerCo’s rise to being number one seller of suppressors has been nothing short of phenomenal.

  Founded in 2008, the company started out as a two-man operation and is now an industry leader. They’ve done by being innovative and hands-on, producing a better, longer-lasting product and focusing on marketing.

“ I jumped on a plane and flew to all 39 states where silencers are legal to meet with dealers,” said Joshua Walden, one of SilencerCo’s founders, to Inc. magazine. “We ended up taking so many preorders that we sold out our first batch of 200 silencers before they had even been made. The first year, we sold 750 Sparrows. Soon after, we developed and released our next product, the Osprey, a silencer for handguns.”

  A big hurdle for the company has been just getting the idea out there that suppressors are legal, helpful and attainable. They’re not taboo, they make shooting easier and safer. They’re aware that silencers have been villainized and distorted over decades of bad press, when in reality they’re just another tool in the shooting kit.

  Which is why the Salvo 12 is the most important suppressor ever made.”

Integrally Suppressed 10/22

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Great Lakes Tactical makes integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles that are a beautiful thing to (not) hear.

  As I mentioned earlier in the week, I had the chance to do some shooting with the guys at Great Lakes Tactical in Ohio.  In addition to the full auto Glock, they brought along one of their integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles.  This was a nice piece of hardware.

  The 10/22 I shot used a Green Mountain barrel with a sleeve over it.  The barrel was cut and when combined with the sleeve acted as a very effective sound suppressor.  The sleeve comes off easily for cleaning, and gives the rifle a nice bull barrel look.”

Everyone Gets A Gun: NRA Commentator Talks ‘Gun Required’ Zones, Shooting Tests

 

 

 

” In a new video entitled “Everyone Gets a Gun,” NRA commentator Billy Johnson this week dishes on his view of guns and education in America, comparing the two and drawing on some startling comparisons and thought-provoking contrasts in our nation’s schools as balanced against gun laws.

  In the four-minute video, which begins with a disclaimer that Johnson’s commentary “does not necessarily” reflect the larger organization’s views, Johnson proposes that schools be mandated to introduce a curriculum that forces kids to learn shooting skills, as part of his tongue-in-cheek suggestion for “gun required zones.” “
