The Long Range Shooting Guide, Part 1: Theory
by Tom Mchale
Long range shooting is kind of like throwing a baseball from right field to home plate. When you boil down all the complexity, you really only have to worry about two things: how far the bullet falls before it hits the target and how far the wind blows it sideways.

If you want to make your head hurt, you can add in more variables like moving targets, rotation of the earth, and bullet spin drift, but for now, we’ll keep things simple.

There are only two major guiding principles to worry about for most longer range shooting scenarios: gravity and the wind.

5 Cool Guns And Gear Products From The NRA Annual Meeting
by Tom Mchale
The National Rifle Association Annual Meeting is a heck of a lot more than just meetings. Yes, the business of the NRA gets done, and there are plenty of speeches by industry figures, politicians, and others, but there’s also one of the world’s biggest gun and gear exhibits.

This year, over 800 companies filled 15 acres of exhibit hall space to show the latest and greatest guns, gear, and ammunition to 81,836 attendees. That makes the recent event held at the Atlanta, Georgia World Congress Center the second largest NRA Annual Meeting ever. How someone counted all those folks will remain one of the mysteries of the universe, but I can attest to the fact that there were 194 boatloads of people shuffling the aisles and more gear than one could ever dream of buying.
