SGM rifle 1

Q&A with Marc Krebs, Jim Fuller and Chase Sisgold on sanctions

download

by Rob Kay For AK lovers, there’s no bigger story than the sanctions against Concern Kalashnikov, which in effect ban the importation of all Saigas and VEPRS.

On Target Review: 7.62x39 "Sporterized" VEPR

MK

Some of the world's greatest artists, composers, writers, scientists and engineers came out of this vast land.

On Target Interviews Tim Harmsen, Founder of Military Arms Channel -- Part 2

by Rob Kay A few years back there was a TV-comedian who self-deprecatingly called himself  the "slowest rising star" on television. You can't say that about Tim Harmsen, aka MAC, who over the last few years has become one of the most popular gun guys on the blogosphere. (See the Jan 14 ABC News story One of These YouTube […]

On Target Review: Burris FastFire III with AR-F3 Mount

ff111 1911-2

by Robert F. Kay The first time I saw the diminutive FastFire was in its earliest incarnation. It sat atop a 1911 wadcutter owned by the best shooter in the state. I was intrigued.
