Ruger’s new Gunsite Scout rifle has had rifle geeks of all stripes in a twitter since it was introduced earlier this year and for good reason: It is a well-built, accurate and affordable take on the scout rifle concept as originally pioneered by Col. Jeff Cooper, the founder of Gunsite Academy. Plus, it was built in conjunction with Gunsite instructors—the keepers of Col. Cooper’s flame.
It’s such a nice rifle, in fact, that we gave it our prestigious “Great Buy” award during Outdoor Life’s annual gun test this year. I considered that rifle such a good value that I bought it for my personal collection.
All this adoration heaped on Ruger’s newest hasn’t gone unnoticed by Steyr, the makers of the original scout rifle, and now the company has decided to fire back, claiming primogenitor and talking smack about both the Ruger rifle and ARs in general. This is from a press release put out a couple days ago:
“With the rage over modern sporting rifles—or “mouse-guns” in Col. Cooper vernacular—and their increasingly burdensome array of accessories waning, common sense has seemingly returned to the American rifleman, as the Colonel’s lightweight, .308-caliber bolt-action, rabbits-to-elk, bug-out Steyr Scout rifle...

On Monday the Center of Disease control released a list of guidelines on how to survive an uprising from the living dead (no, the zombie apocalypse is not upon us, so put your zombie guns back in the gun safe … at least for now.)
The CDC post was written by Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan and gives helpful advice such as "Once you've made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan … this includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your doorstep. You can also implement this plan if there is a flood, earthquake or other emergency." [ Read Full Post ]
Tyler Freel talks about his favorite rifle: The Remington Model 700 dressed in .25-06. This year Freel will take the rifle into the mountains of Alaska on a sheep hunt.
The stainless steel and synthetic stock make for a tough rifle that can survive the elements on even Freel's toughest hunts.

Spring turkey seasons have opened down south in places like Florida, Alabama, Georgia and elsewhere, with buddies in my broad turkey-hunting circle sharing tales of gobblers with hens, and the frustration that brings, but also 100% success. Hey, that's turkey hunting.
C.J. Davis just checked in from South Carolina, where the limit is 5 gobblers statewide, no more than 2 per day. He reported that he just got back from hunting the fabled Low Country. “Found plenty of gobbling turkeys, but they were henned-up and generally shut up by 8:30 leaving me to ponder life and admire the beauty of the Savannah River swamp. Two others in our party did better with one killing on the last day while another missed.”

In recent years The Sierra Club, the nation’s largest environmental membership organization, has gone to great lengths to appear supportive of hunting, fishing and scientific wildlife management in an attempt to distance itself from more recognizable—and radical—anti-hunting organizations.
It’s now a supporting member of a national professional organization of hunting and fishing writers and features biographies of its “conservation leaders” who hunt and fish on its Web site. [ Read Full Post ]
On Wednesday, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal signed legislation adopting an official Wyoming state code based on the tenets known in the West as “Cowboy Ethics.”
Although the historic Code of the West was unwritten, cowboys, trappers, hunters and others in the U.S. frontier knew it was about maintaining honesty, integrity and courage in a wide-open region where the affects of government barely reached and laws were not always enforced. [ Read Full Post ]
How happy are you with your riflescope?
Before you answer, think about the last couple of years. Have you been jammed up on a shot opportunity because your variable-power scope was on the highest setting? Were you not able to find a close-in deer because you only saw hair at 12x? [ Read Full Post ]
