Well now, this is different…

A new kit allows reloading of fired .22 LR cartridges.

Common knowledge has it that reloading .22 Long Rifle cartridges isn’t possible, or at least isn’t practical. But necessity being the mother of invention—in this case necessity being the present drought of .22 LR ammunition—American entrepreneurship has now added the rimfire cartridge to our reloading repertoire.

1 MOA @ 3⅓ km? What??

Who does this guy think he is;  Rob Furlong?

RATON, NM — Billy Carter, a native of Spring, Texas, hit a 1 MOA target from a distance of 2.07 miles at the NRA Whittington U Long Distance Range last week.

Shoot first, pay later? Maple Ridge store offers firearm financing

CTV Vancouver

An unusual gun-financing program being offered by a Metro Vancouver hunting store is raising serious concerns that the option will provide easier access to firearms.

Wanstalls, which sells everything from sporting shotguns to semi-automatic rifles, began offering a financing program this February which puts guns in the hands of buyers immediately and lets them pay over a set period of time.

Because importing firearms can be a years-long process, people who order them might not be able to pay the full price when they finally arrive, according to store co-owner Craig Jones.

“It’s been breathtaking to see how many people are actually responding to this in a positive way,” Jones told CTV News. Continue reading »
