SCCY Firearms Shows Off Colorful .380 and 9mm Pistols

Wed, 01/31/2018 - 11:03

Wayne Holt from SCCY Firearms sat down with OSG’s Michael Bane at SHOT Show 2018 to talk about SCCY’s reasonably priced and reliable firearms. SCCY makes firearms that won’t break the bank, but are reliable enough for every day carry.

Holt showed Bane the SCCY .380 pistol, which is available in multiple color options. He explains that many new shooters are women, and the new choice of colors has been a hit with the growing demographic. Holt and Bane also spoke about the SCCY 9mm pistol, which just like the .380, has reliable iron sights and minimal kick back.  Both of these pistols are perfect for concealed carry due to their small size and minimal recoil.

SCCY Firearms manufactures all guns in house, and pistols are priced around $250.

RNT-V and RNT Duck Calls

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 17:55

One of the most recognizable names in the waterfowling world, Jim “Jimbo” Ronquest of Rich-n-Tone Duck Calls (RNT), makes his living making duck calls and producing the popular RNT-V series on Sportsman Channel.

At the 40th anniversary SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Ronquest stopped by the OSG booth to talk for a few minutes to writer Lynn Burkhead about all things duck hunting.

From the various RNT filming expeditions this past fall to the challenge of duck hunting in high-and-dry Arkansas after a summer and early fall of drought, greenheads, duck calls, and Sitka Gear camouflage dominated the discussion.

Before the quack-talk session was through, Ronquest – the 2006 world duck calling champion – gave viewers a progress report on how the Stuttgart, Ark. based RNT Call Shop is coming along in the rebuilding process after the company suffered a devastating fire in early 2016.

New Upland Shotgun: Browning Citori White Lightning Over-and-Under

Wed, 01/24/2018 - 12:50

Rafe Nielson of Browning recently discussed the revamped Browning Citori White Lightning Over-and-Under shotgun at Industry Day at the Range prior to the beginning of SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas.

According to Nielsen, the 2018 version of the White Lightning brings some enhanced engraving to the classic shotgun along with some internal design improvements. Add in a thinner forearm for a better grip and the White Lightning continues the Hall-of-Fame performance by Browning’s iconic Citori line-up.

All in all, these enhancements to the Browning 12-gauge over-and-under should keep both waterfowlers and their upland hunting pals all smiles when the greenhead mallards and the pheasant roosters fly in front of the quick handling White Lightning shotgun.

AR-10 Rifle – ‘Gun Stories’

Thu, 01/04/2018 - 21:54

The AR-15 is one of the most successful rifles in history, both for the military and civilians. The only thing that could make the AR-15 better is bigger rounds, specifically 7.62 mm rounds instead of the standard 5.56 mm.

Eugene Stoner’s original design of the AR-10, which is the predecessor of the AR-15, used 7.62 mm rounds. These rounds were the military designation for the .308 cartridges. The drive to create larger caliber AR rifles came from two different directions. The first from hunters, who needed bigger rounds to hunt big game. Second, from the military, which was responding to the necessity of longer shots in battlefields, such as the mountain ranges in Afghanistan.

Companies such as Remington and tactically-oriented Daniel Defense, offer larger caliber ARs designed for the hunter. As a result, the AR is the fastest growing hunting rifle in America. Eugene Stoner would be proud to see how far his platform has come. One thing is for certain, the big bore ARs are here to stay.
