Celebrate Diversity! The World of AR-platform Calibers

The AR platform can be adapted to dozens of different calibers, like this Rock River Arms LAR-6.8 chambered in 6.8 Remington SPC.

In these troubled times where everyone wants to stir up trouble and hate over our differences in appearance, I want it to go on record that I don’t just tolerate diversity, I embrace it. In my safe right this moment, I have AR-type rifles chambered in .223/5.56mm, 6.8 SPC, 300 Blackout, and .308 Winchester. Of […]

How to Clean Your Handgun

“A revolver never jams!” I hear this one virtually every time I visit a gun store. Given what I do for a living, I simply can’t help picking up the sales conversations at the gun counter. Yeah, I know. That’s nosey and none of my business. Whether it’s my business to overhear or not, the […]

Over the years, .40 S&W has been disparaged as a mediocre compromise round. You’ve probably heard some of the descriptions. .40 Slow and Weak .40 Short and Weak I’ve never really understood that. Sure, most cartridges have pros and cons relative to others, and as study after study shows, none are perfect. All handgun calibers […]

The NRA Foundation: Preserving Our Heritage, One Person At A Time

The NRA Foundation helps tens of thousands of our nation's youth experience shooting, hunting, archery and the great outdoors.

Maybe you’ve heard the following phrase, “your tax dollars at work.” It doesn’t paint a very inspiring picture, does it? The government takes your money, then proceeds to waste it.
