What It Looks Like When A 10-Year-Old Girl’s Gun Marksmanship Blows Away Competition





” Her name is Shyanne Roberts, and she’s a gunslinging 10-year-old from Franklinville, New Jersey, who’s just won a spot to compete as an adult in a big shooting competition.

  Shyanne will be competing against 200 women at the Lady 3 Gun Pro Am Challenge in Georgia at the end of the month. She’ll be handling a rifle, shot gun and hand gun in the competition.

  She told CNN she wants to use her skills to inspire other kids.

  I want to be an inspiration to other kids and be a leader. Kids and guns don’t always mean bad things happen.

  As you’ve probably figured out, Shyanne can skillfully handle all types of guns, including an AR 15 she built herself. “

Vince’s 7mm WSM Record-Breaker



” We are always pleased to showcase a talented shooter on the “other side of the Pond.” This week we present the record-setting green machine of Vince Bottomley, creator of the Precision Rifle WebZine. Vince shot his way into the record books with this rifle, breaking a 5-year-old UK 1000-yard, 5-shot group record. Then, a month later, he lowered his new record to 2.670″. He set that mark with Norma brass, Berger 180gr VLDs, and Reloader 25. Vince’s BAT-actioned rifle started life as a 6.5-284. But after one season, he rechambered it to a 7mm WSM (a 7mm/300 WSM to be precise). The 7mm experiment was a huge success, and Vince now proudly owns the most accurate 1000-yard Light Gun in the United Kingdom.”



     Here is a video of Mr Bottomley in America getting to shoot some weapons that are banned in his home country of the UK .



” Vince Bottomley, Editor of Target Shooter magazine in the UK comments on his experiences in the USA at SHOT Show. Here Vince, a top-level benchrest competitor, gets a chance to shoot pistols, revolvers, AR-15s and other guns that are now banned in the United Kingdom. The video starts with an interview with S&W ace Jerry Miculek. “

5 Failed Rifle Designs


” Ever since the first firearm design was traced out, shooters have looked to make a better one. This path has led to hundreds of innovative and ground breaking designs, establishing new standards and ultimately moving the modernization of firearms in a positive direction. Then, there are those that just plain didn’t. Here are five ugly ducklings for which there would be no beautiful swan happy ending: ”





Grendel-Based 6mmAR for AR15s





 ” The classic AR-15 “Black Rifle” remains extremely popular among High Power competitors. But its standard .223 chambering leaves much to be desired as a long-range round. Robert Whitley has come up with a great new chambering for the AR-15 that offers dramatically better long-range performance in the wind. Robert’s cartridge, dubbed the “6mmAR”, is basically a necked-down 6.5 Grendel. But Robert has done more than just tweak the Grendel. He’s put together a complete package that includes complete uppers, custom dies, and reliable magazines. Put that all together with a .556 BC bullet running 2750 fps, and you have a winning combination.”

Armed Citizen in TX Stops Shooting Spree and Saves

Cop by Making 150+ Yard Shot With a Pistol





” This is a pretty amazing story. An armed private citizen assisted a police officer who was pinned down by the gunfire of a madman who had just killed 3 people and could have killed many more. Amazingly the concerned citizen, Vic Stacy, did so by taking a shot of 150+ yards using only a pistol. “

…  Just Right for Small Shooters


 ” Back in the early 1990s, the father and son team of Bill and Steve McNeal created the Davey Crickett, a single-shot .22 caliber youth rifle. The Crickett rifles were the first in a growing Pennsylvania based brand , Keystone Sporting Arms, which opened in 1996.  The small company has grown into a dominant powerhouse by making .22-caliber rifles designed specifically for kids.

The original Crickett design is heavily influenced by the Winchester 1900, another in the long line of John Moses Browning designs. ”


Stay Calm and Keep Shooting: Clearing Malfunctions



 ” If you shoot a semi-automatic rifle or pistol, it is inevitable at some point you will have a malfunction. This is when you pull the trigger and nothing happens. Well, something happens, but it isn’t what you expect. The gun doesn’t go bang. Many people call this a “jam,” but the correct term is malfunction. Most malfunctions you can fix yourself. The problem turns into a jam when you cannot clear the issue and need the service of a gunsmith.

Malfunctions are caused by a problem with the ammunition; the mechanics of the gun or the shooter. To get the most out of your training, familiarize yourself with the types of malfunctions and how to fix them. To do this you will need to be able to perform these actions quickly in a self-defense situation.

Your first fix for most malfunctions is the “tap-rack-bang.” “
