Join The Movement: The NSSF +ONE Campaign

JOIN THE MOVEMENT: THE NSSF +ONE CAMPAIGN As firearms enthusiasts, hunters, and recreational shooters, how do we do our part to advance the positive, educational, and informative conversations happening around the country about firearms? Have you ever asked yourself that question? If you’re like me, the regular time you spend shooting your firearm is often your “me time”. I love to have my wife join me on the range or in the woods when our schedules permit, and she loves shooting and hunting too. But far more often I am squeezing in a range trip on the way home from work or even over a lunch break if I’m lucky. It’s a chance for me to unwind and do something I enjoy.

300 Blackout vs. 7.62x39mm: Beefed Up Black Rifles

Beefed Up Black Rifles: 300 Blackout Vs. 7.62x39mm The AR-15 was designed around the .223 Remington / 5.56 NATO cartridge to achieve a very specific purpose. The lighter, smaller cartridge meant that soldiers could carry more ammunition into the field than the enemy. Greater firepower through quantity. However, in today’s market where the AR platform is more customizable than ever, people are opting more and more to move away from the smaller 5.56 NATO and upgrade to some higher-powered cartridges.
