Last week at the 2015 SHOT Show, Savage surprised almost everyone with their release of a semi-auto 17HMR, that seems to function well and does not cause a huge hit on your wallet! The name of this rifle is the new Savage A17 semi-auto 17 HMR rifle. We got a chance to shoot this new […]
We were able to shoot the new Ruger 17WSM rifle at the 2015 SHOT Show, Media Range Day this past week. Many people were hoping that Ruger would step-in and offer one of their 77/17 rifles in the popular .17 Winchester Super Magnum cartridge. This rifle is definitely brings Ruger to the table with a […]
The buzz that finally appeared at the SHOT Show’s Media Range Day, came from a couple of places no one was expecting. In our limited 2015 SHOT Show Media Range Report, we will cover the items that seemed to stir the most buzz. Ironically, they almost all focused on rimfire rifles and ammunition. The […]
Up until a few weeks ago, the only ammunition you could find with Hornady’s .172 caliber, 15.5 grain NTX bullets was in 17HMR or 17HM2 rimfire ammunition. I received an email from one of the online retailers I buy from, that they got some of the new Hornady .17 Hornet ammunition in, with the 15.5 […]
In my last blog story, I covered getting my Kalibrgun Cricket Air Rifle in .25 caliber zeroed at 65 yards in some testy winds. Yesterday, I had a chance to get out and explore some, new to me, prairie dog country. I took along my Cricket rifle, but the main focus of the day would […]
The Franklin Armory F17-L in .17 Winchester Super Magnum has a lot of firsts. It is the first semi-automatic rifle in .17WSM now available to the general public. It is the first gas piston system, AR15 rimfire rifle (built in partnership between Franklin Armory and Osprey Defense). Lastly, it is the first AR15, chambered in […]
**Update** Unfortunately, due to new regulations passed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California residents are no longer allowed to hold “contest hunts” on predators. This vote took place on Wednesday, with the results taking affect immediately, so the Varminter Predator Hunt Picture Contest ended the moment the vote was cast. Thanks for […]
When it comes to varmints, Texas offers tons of opportunities to those who can find property to hunt. Varmint hunters are generally welcomed by landowners, so I have found it easier to gain access when they know I only want to target the critters that don’t have horns or tusks. This was the case during […]
Kalibrgun Cricket Airguns have become hugely popular in the airgun community, with their compact Cricket Bullpup rifles. What many folks don’t know, is that Kalibrgun has a full-size “hunting” rifle. I had a great time heading up to Northern Arizona to shoot some airguns with Cliff, who owns the VarmintAir Airgun Hunting Blog. We did […]
A shooting platform that is portable, allows for 360 degree motion, yet sturdy and comfortable enough to sit on for hours while shooting varmints? That’s the thought that went through my head as I wandered by the Idleback booth at the 2014 SHOT Show last January. My first glance of the chair lit up more […]
