That juice is always worth the squeeze...

Squirrel Rifles: At Every Price Point   -  6/6/2014

By: Richard Mann
Feature Article - Product - How to - Tips

I was five years old sitting beside my father with a .410 shotgun in my lap watching squirrels running a muck for nuts. And, I was out of ammunition. I don't remember how many times I fired but my shoulder was sore. On the way back to camp I asked if I could use the .22 rifle next time. Dad said, "I reckon so." I did and never looked back. No more shotgunning squirrels for me!

It is very difficult, next to impossible to get me to do anything on the weekend other than go deer hunting from mid October thru the end of January. If it is not your birthday, holiday or someone has passed away it just won't happen unless you have a very good reason to persuade me.

I enjoy hunting with AR style rifles but have found most riflescopes with standard eye relief can make it difficult to access and operate the charging handle. The long eye relief was initially what attracted me to the Bushnell Elite 6500 1.25 - 8 X 32 mm riflescope.

Shoot Like a Man: Standing, Off-Hand   -  11/21/2013

Shooting from the standing, off-hand position is the least stable of all but there are some tricks to it. Stand with your body bladed at about a 35 to 45 degree angle to the target. Your support-side foot should be pointed toward the target and your strong-side foot should be at a 90 degree angle to your body or at about a 45 degree angle to the target. Your feet should be about shoulder width apart.
