If Dirty Harry was looking for a bigger gun, the Smith & Wesson .460 XVR might have been his first choice. Every once in a while, even the most hard core tactical among us likes to go old school. One of the more popular ways to do this while hunting is to break out a big, heavy revolver that more closely resembles a cannon than it does a sidearm. It’s a whole different kind of challenge than when running with a 30 round magazine. Yep, it is big, heavy, has a right respectable recoil and throws a huge chunk of lead. Considering what kind of critter you are going after, all of the above are greatly outweighed by the peace of mind that accompanies me as I load, holster, and head out. Give it chance. With muzzle energy resembling that of a .308 rifle, it’s sure to put a smile on every tactical hunter’s face.
As Christmastime approaches, we all start thinking about what to give others when the day comes to celebrate. And we may also be thinking about what we would like to get for Christmas too… Some people are easy to buy for. Some aren’t. We’ve put together a list of things that are sure to be a big hit weather you are giving or getting them. Take a look. You may want to go ahead and send the link to this list to everyone who may be getting you something this year. Maybe you just need to go ahead and get something for yourself too.
It's like owning a Ferrari but knowing next to nothing about driving a stick shift. Try owning a finely built precision rifle whose job is long range hunting, but knowing next to nothing about getting the bullet to hit the target 1000 yards downrange. That's more than a half mile. It's insane. With that in mind, it was time to shout "Stop the insanity!" and head to Bill Davison's Precision Rifle Class at Tac Pro Shooting Center. The signature long range class wraps up with a clay pigeon challenge. No, the clays aren't flying. They are sitting upright 1000 yards downrange.
I'm no sniper. I'm not a competitive shooter. Neither are 95% of the people who read this, who hunt for fun, or simply enjoy the unique challenge of long range shooting. But I do expect a lot from myself, and given the sports car of a rifle King's Arsenal put together for me, I was honestly frustrated with my lack of driving skills, or consistent tiny groups. The thought of engaging clay pigeons at 1000 yards was pretty intimidating...
