Sniper takes out ISIS executioner from a mile away

A sharpshooter killed a top ISIS executioner and three other jihadists with a single bullet from nearly a mile away — just seconds before the fiend was set to burn 12 hostages alive with a flamethrower, according to a new report.

The British Special Air Service marksman turned one of the most hated terrorists in Syria into a fireball by using a Barrett .50-caliber rifle to strike a fuel tank affixed to the jihadi’s back…read more here

Shotgun Maker Mossberg Moving Operations Out Of Connecticut

America’s largest shotgun manufacturer, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., decided not to expand in Connecticut. Sure it was founded there 1919 and still has its corporate headquarters in North Haven. But in 2013 Connecticut rushed through legislation to ban some of Mossberg’s popular products. As a result, Mossberg CEO, Iver Mossberg, says, “Investing in Texas was an easy decision. It’s a state that is not only committed to economic growth but also honors and respects the Second Amendment and the firearm freedoms it guarantees for our customers.”...read more here

This gigantic sniper rifle can hit a kill shot from almost two miles away

Standing 6 feet 8 inches tall, this is by far the biggest rifle I’ve ever seen. Anzio Ironworks developed the 20x102mm Ultra Long Range Sniper System to increase the limit of precision firing from 2,000 yards to 3,500 yards (almost two miles), according to Tactical-Life…read more here

Underwater Glock Fishing For Lionfish. You’ve Got To See This!

Take that lionfish!!! I thought I had seen some creative ways to kill the invasive lionfish, but this video trumped it all. Our friend Courtland Hunt (his son is the 4-year old fishing teacher that went viral in this video) teamed up with Airborne Arms to see if they could turn a Glock 9mm handgun into a lionfish killing machine in 100 feet of water. Did it work?…read more here

What to Consider When Buying a Rifle Scope

One thing that always amazes me when I walk into a gun store is just how many rifles lack any sort of iron sights.

Metallic sights have been an integral part of rifles since rifling was invented, and yet in the last few decades we’ve seen fewer and fewer factory rifles equipped with iron sights. For me, this is perhaps the most powerful illustration of the effectiveness of riflescopes. Having spent innumerable hours behind riflescopes as a recreational shooter and as a Marine, I can confidently say that the modern riflescope is an excellent addition to almost any rifle, whether it is a dedicated paper-puncher, a seasonal hunting tool, or a military weapon…read more here

The Story Behind the M-1 Garand Rifle and the story of John C. Garand

“THE sharp crack of a rifle rang out, and another enemy bit the dust.”

It was, if you remember your dime novels, none other than Dead-shot Dick, the intrepid frontiersman. Surrounded and assailed on all sides by savages, renegades, and assorted varmints, he stood at bay. Again and again, he fired until the bodies of his enemies were heaped high about him.Then he strode off, lovingly patting the still warm barrel of his trusty long rifle which, though a flintlock, had performed like a machine gun…read more here 

Tested: Mossberg MVP-LC Bolt-Action Rifle

The ability to place rounds on distant targets with precision has always been appealing to me. Apparently I am not alone, as PRS and other long-range competitions are growing at rapid rates. The hardware developed for this sport is an amazing evolution of shooting technology. Mossberg is among several companies now offering a production bolt gun suitable for long-range shooting and competitions…read more here

The Top 12 Most Famous Shotguns

Writer Nash Buckingham’s “Bo Whoop”—named for the sound of its report—is an HE-grade Super Fox, made specifically for long-range shooting. Built in 1927, it weighs 9½ pounds and has 32-inch full-and-full barrels, specially bored to shoot 3-inch, 4-shot loads. Buckingham, a regular F&S contributor, used the gun for more than 20 years.
