DUCKS.ORG From the Archives – Skeet and trap are fine for summer shooting practice, but sporting clays is the best way to tune up for duck season. On any sporting clays course there are stations set up to mimic decoying mallards, overhead geese, springing teal, and other types of shots commonly encountered while waterfowling. By learning to hit these targets consistently on the course, you can improve your chances on wild ducks and geese in the marsh.[FULL ARTICLE]
OUTDOOR LIFE From the Archives – Skeet is fun, trap is addictive, and sporting clays may be the ultimate challenge, so indulge. Often. Just don’t assume that’s enough to prepare you for bird season. Shooting upland birds requires aerobic fitness, fast hand-eye coordination, mental acuity, and the ability to shoot quickly—sometimes from awkward positions. Here are some tips to help you practice all of those things.[FULL ARTICLE]
Weekend, May 19-20,2018 — What should be among the simplest of shots boils down to this: Moving targets give some hunters fits. Over the scan of a few dozen years we’ve seen and experienced frustration from bird hunters; not because there weren’t any birds but because the shooting consisted of more misses than hits. Ease up a bit, pardner; you’ll be happy to know that’s not uncommon and yet that’s a big part of the fun of hunting, though not always when applied to trap, skeet or sporting clays. On the one hand, missing shots only means you’ve got more chances coming and the shooting – not necessarily the killing – is what bird hunting is all about.
For most hunters the end of hunting season begets a long period of doldrum fever. In some parts of the country, a remedy includes trips to the target range. But in some other areas – those where the ground turns white right along with your beard and moustache and the temperature drops from balmy to frozen Hell – you have little choice but to turn to the clay range, albeit with gloves and down overwear.
That’s why this weekend we’ve chosen to commiserate with all the gun brothers who find May, without a flyrod or baitcaster, and a Memorial weekend holiday as an opportunity to uncase the smoothbores and take another trip down memory lane at…
Most every sporting clays course has a rabbit station two. And these alternately rolling and bouncing targets give many shooters fits.Here is why: These targets are slower than they look and speed continues to be scrubbed off as they roll along the ground. Also, as with any target below your line of sight, theres a tendency to shoot over the top.This short NSSF video will demonstrates two tips on how to turn those pesky rabbits into smoke.
Practice, the right shells, and using Hi-Viz sights will help you tremendously out bird hunting.
Gil Ash of OSP Shooting Schools shares the secret to getting a hard focus on the bird faster and more clearly with this valuable tip about how the eyes work.
Gil Ash of OSP Shooting Schools reveals an important concept for shotgun shooters.That is, when shooting a right-to-left crosser a right-handed shooter must look across the shotgun barrel to see the target. The same concept applies to left-handed shooters when shooting a left-to-right crosser.
Gil Ash of OSP Shooting Schools demonstrates why shotgun shooters shouldn't look down the barrel, nor at the bead.By focusing on the target you might see fewer targets but you'll surely break more.

SHELBY MURDOC | May 15, 2018 — “Every Marine a rifleman,” they say. The full quote, by Gen. Alfred M. Gray, 29th Commandant of the Marine Corps, is, “Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary.” Today, the United States Marine Corps is in the process of upgunning its riflemen.
The M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle, originally intended as a replacement for many (but not all) of the M249 SAWs in Corps inventory, has since been designated the new standard infantry weapon for the entire USMC. The M27 IAR is based on the Heckler & Koch HK416, a piston-driven rifle that serves in a number of militaries and is, perhaps, most famous for being the rifle Navy SEALs supposedly used to kill Osama bin Laden in 2011.

BOB ROGERS | Thursday, May 10, 2018 — What the Left wants is Gun Control. What the Right wants is Crime Control. Why is that concept so difficult to imagine? The continual push-back from either side of the gun debate is non-productive. Efforts to use political means to control guns suggests that the Left has absolutely no interest in controlling crime, aka, “gun violence.” The buzz-terms are explicit despite abject failure when given to the other-worldly electorate; the majority voters just can’t wrap their minds around the issue but only religiously cling to their media masters’ messages. In such appearances, ignorant laziness is next to godliness.
Much has been made this week in the reportage of the NY Times, WaPo, CNN, NBC – the usual suspects – about corporate shareholders “forcing” Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Vista, et al, to comply with investors demands to change their business methods. Those companies and the myriad others within the firearms industry do what they do best: they manufacture guns and gun accessories and sell them to willing retailers who, in turn, sell them via BACKGROUND CHECKS to willing, law-abiding, consumers.

STEVE COMUS | Tuesday, May 1, 2018 — The gun has its place in society. Always has. Always will. It seems like no matter what happens, there are segments of society who want to attack guns. Then others join in the chorus, or so it seems if one were to believe the narrow focus of the general news media.
Truth is that it is not so for the majority of citizens because most folks don’t join public demonstrations. But the lenses of the cameras recording those events are limited to where they are pointed and they are not primarily pointed at good guys with guns.
If enemies of the gun and the gun culture have us surrounded, we have them right where we want them. Metaphorically, all we need to do is to form a circular firing squad with all guns pointed outward, so to speak. [read more]
JIM MATTHEWS | Tuesday, May 1, 2018 — The Mojave National Preserve released its Management Plan for Developed Water Sources on March 20 along with the environmental assessment of the plan’s impacts, effectively laying the groundwork for the abandonment or removal of well over 100 historic man-made water sources and developed springs used by wildlife.
The howls from the sporting conservation community, which had been restoring and maintaining the water sources for over 50 years, were immediate.
These wildlife enthusiasts have been down this road before on the Preserve, when its second superintendent, Mary Martin, directed the removal and destruction of historic cattle water sources that had served wildlife for over 75 years. This was a direct violation of the Preserve’s own management plan that called for the evaluation of the impacts that water removal would have on wildlife before they were removed. [read more]
