” The homeowner also observed a Dodge pickup and flatbed trailer parked in the dark on the road near his house. The man saw the pickup truck was running with the keys in the ignition. He entered the suspect’s truck, turned the engine off and removed the keys. Suddenly, the suspect appeared and a confrontation ensued. The suspect managed to get the man’s rifle away from him, assaulting the man in the process.
The homeowner’s son, awakened by the gunshots, saw the young male suspect raise the rifle and, fearing the suspect was about to shoot his father, shot the suspect, killing him instantly.
” We are a nation of laws. Our law protects the law-abiding citizens of our nation,” said Van Zandt County Sheriff Lindsey Ray. “It is unfortunate that a young man had to die this morning in our community because of a bad decision he made to violate the rights of a law-abiding citizen.” “
Sheriff Ray has his priorities in order.
” Big game hunting, for those who partake in it, is an extraordinary and enthusiastic experience. For dedicated hunters worldwide, a Beretta Express Rifle in the hand means a trophy on the wall. Express Rifles are not ordinary firearms. Beretta’s almost five centuries of gunmaking help create Express Rifles that deliver a potent combination of ultra-strong receivers and carefully crafted barrels to comfortably handle today’s powerful ballistics with remarkable accuracy.
” Based on the configurations of the famous SO over-and-unders, the SSO6 Express Rifles have an exceptionally sturdy receiver with side-locks and cold hammer forged barrels, fully rifled inside for the maximum accuracy. Fitted with a blade front sight and a V-notch rear sight with a folding leaf, the SSO6 barrels can be custom ordered with claw mounts for a factory-fitted Zeiss® scope, sighted in at 100 meters. Hand finished, hand checkered stocks and fore-ends are made from selected walnut or walnut briar with a cheek rest. A special trapdoor compartment for extra cartridges is fitted inside the stock, and an area under the pistol grip cap holds a set of spare front sights.”
Note the typos in the above announcement : These guns are rifles , not shotguns.
Like all Beretta products this rifle is exquisitely crafted and a work of art in and of itself . It is available in calibers 9.3x74R , .375 Holland & Holland Magnum and .458 Winchester Magnum . A little investigation has revealed that the suggested list price of this beautiful firearm ($61,200.00) puts it out of our league but we’d surely welcome one as a Christmas gift .
” When you think about what’s inside an Xbox the results aren’t too surprising. Yeah, .50 BMG throws a big bullet plenty fast but put a wall of copper, glass and steel in front of any projectile and see how much luck you have with that.
Fortunately, that’s where the C4 comes in.”

Note: While I work to verify my recoil data, I have decided to release the first part of this comparison, which covers muzzle flash.
One of the most popular accessories for today’s AR15 owner is a muzzle device. Want less muzzle flash? There’s a device for that. Want less recoil? There’s a device for that, too. Want less muzzle flash AND less recoil? Some devices even claim to perform multiple functions.
I have been closely studying how various muzzle devices perform for years, and this summer, with the assistance of Advanced Armament Company, B.E. Meyers, and Silencerco, was able to test a significant number of devices currently on the market in unique and highly educational ways. I did not manage to test all of the devices on the market, or even all of the most popular ones. I did include a good sample of different types of devices. It is my hope that after reviewing this article, the reader will be able to look at any muzzle device and be able to make an educated guess regarding its characteristics in a number of areas. As you will see, some perform quite similarly to one another.
If you would like to see how each device performed, scroll down to the graphs below. However, I feel that a preface is warranted here.”

” Marlin has been in the gun biz for going on 150-years. Founded just after the Civil War by John Mahlon Marlin, they have produced more than a hundred models of firearms in almost every caliber imaginable. Here we look at five of their timeless classics. These guns were all extremely popular standard production models that helped make the brand a household name.”
At the top of the list comes our personal favorite …
” Lewis Hepburn was Marlin’s preeminent firearms designer in the 19th century. He invented a long line of lever action guns that included the M1888, 1889, and others that introduced innovative takedown actions, magazines, and trigger groups. In 1896, he produced his masterpiece, the M1895 rifle. It was the first lever action rifle that used a solid top receiver, side ejection, and Ballard barrels. Produced in standard and take down models (which could be disassembled for transport) these guns were built in hard-hitting .38-56, .40-65, .40-82, 45.-70, and .45-90. As such, they were capable of taking down anything from deer to moose to buffalo and everything in between. Not bad for an 8-pound rifle. Some 400,000 of these guns were built until 1917. After taking a break from the design for fifty years (not a lot of buffalo around these days) Marlin brought the gun back in a greatly redesigned (based on the Model 444 action) as the New Model 1895 in 1972, which is today still in production in in a four-shot .45-70.”
