    Is the .270 a good "general purpose" round? Is it good for hunting and self-defense?

    I'm in Michigan. I would like to buy a new or used rifle for hunting deer. I am the type of person who focuses on aiming so I don't want to worry about running out of ammo. This means it has to have an external magazine system. What are the requirements for buying a rifle in Michigan these...

    I know many people have weapons and most don’t get to shoot them that much, if they don’t have a concealed carry permit many have not had not much if any training at all. Yet many of these people have these weapons for home protection. That is where the problem begins. You buy a gun, you...

    I just recently bought a PTR91-F (haven't fired it yet!). I've read a lot about the barrel problems with certain serial numbers, and how they may not have the correct number of flutes etc. My question is, how can I count the number of flutes my rifle has? I've disassembled it to where I can look...

    For 30 years, in a remarkable cabin he hand-crafted with simple hand tools, Richard Proenneke lived alone in the Alaskan Bush in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Retired at age 50 in 1967, the story of D!ck Proenneke :rolleyes: left the rush of city life behind and headed into the Alaska...

    One dynamic pistol and one static involving both pistol and rifle, with purposefully created distraction (light & sound). Here's what I learned: - Shooting is hard - It's is a martial art, it takes a lot of training before you completely master the skill. Shooting once or twice a month ain't...

    Just in case anyone wondered if the SKS rifles were suitable for hunting white tail deer - here is my experience using them for that: God blessed me with my 3rd and 4th deer in 1997 when I was carrying Chinese made SKS using semi jacketed lead point ammo made in Germany and China respectively...

    In another thread the question of rifle reliablity came up. And while nothing is 100% reliable except God, it made me wonder about other's opinions on rifle reliablity. While I have fired tens of thousands of rounds from nearly every standard military shoulder arm of the 20th century, I...

    Since i'm a mountainbike enthusiast i believe that mountainbikes would be a most excellent alternative to gas-operated vehicles in a shtf or bug-out scenario for a variety of reasons. There's enough street construction currently happening around here that gridlock is guaranteed in the event of...

    Hello all, I am about to purchase my first 10/22 and have a question: I called Ruger and they told me the synthetic stocks and grips are hollow, and easy to access the cavity. I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to store spare ammo, extra mags, along with a mora knife, small survival kit...
