I have to say that I agree with wmi. If these punks were not hunters (daycare incident), they should not even look at changing the hunting regulations. One of the major problems is that the parents,...

For a lubricant, I use Mobil 1 10W-30 full synthetic motor oil. It works well - especially on semi-autos in cold weather.

The 38 spl does not have that much energy in a 4" barrel, and you will lose a lot of velocity and energy with a short barrel snubby. The guidelines of most in defensive shooting is the ammo should...

I have not shot this caliber. I have reloaded and shot the 25-06, but I personally have not used it for deer. Some feel they lose too much meat from a 25-06 if the deer is closer than 100 yards. A...
