Use Reliable Pistol Magazines

The Best Way to Zero a Rifle  

December 8, 2010
Sighting in on a target at 25 yards is much easier than attempting to sight in at a greater distance. Once sighted in at 25 yards, it will be easy to find your shots at 100 yards or greater and make the correct adjustments.

SIG Sauer To Offer 556 Carbine In 7.62x39  

November 24, 2010
The 7.62x39 was not developed for sniper work. Longer cartridges such as the Soviet 7.62x54 were developed for precision work and mimic our 30.06 and .308. The 7.62x39 is a relatively short cartridge case, but packs an effective punch.

Reloading With Your Weak Hand  

November 10, 2010
Dep. Jennifer Fulford never expected the assailant's 9mm bullet to rip through her nerves, disabling feeling in her fingers and causing the loss of use of her entire dominant hand. Fortunately, she was not out of ammo; she performed a one-handed reload with her weak (non-dominant) hand, as she had learned.
