Maintain Shooting Skills With This Course Of Fire Drill

From The Truth About Guns:

In case you didn’t already know it, if you don’t continue to shoot over time, you will slowly lose your shooting skills. Ammunition is more reasonable that it was a couple of years ago, but you still want to make the most of your training dome and dollars. How do you maintain your skill set without burning through a lot of ammunition? Simple: take your time and make every shot a count.

The Ironman Of Shooting Matches?

From The Gun Writer:

Over the course of two days, 35 shooters ran and rucked more than 25 miles, while carrying 35-pound packs, carbines, handguns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and the occasional 20-pound sandbag. They navigated through a series of obstacles, performed one-man CQB and engaged multiple targets from 16 different shooting positions, including shooting from moving vehicles.

A Truly Modular Pistol

From The Truth About Guns:

As SIG SAUER’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Taylor, told a room full of gun writers, accessory makers and even a few competitors last week, the New Hampshire gun maker wants their modular P320 to be thought of in the same way as the 1911 and the AR-15. They want it to be a “universal” platform around which revolves scores of parts, accessories and add-ons made by custom shops and parts makers all around the country.

National Shooting Champion

MKS Supply and Inland Manufacturing Awards   

Firearm to Top Shooter at National Championships

MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH, August 2015– Inland Manufacturing and MKS Supply, LLC, the exclusive marketer for Inland firearms is extremely proud to announce its awarding firearms to two shooters (one, the National Champion) at the National Championships held in July at Camp Perry, Ohio.

 

Inland Manufacturing’s President, Ron Norton presented Army Staff Sargent Lawrence Cleveland of the U.S. Army marksmanship Unit (AMU) with a replica World War II 1911A1 pistol ($749.00 MSRP) for firing a blistering score of 294-7X out of 300 possible points and winning the prestigious 2015 National Trophy Individual (NTI) Pistol Match. The NTI Pistol Match began in 1904, the second year of the National Matches, and is considered to be the most prestigious pistol event at the Camp Perry National Championships.


USA BG Maria Kelly presents General Custer Trophy plaque to SSG Lawrence Cleveland (name will be engraved on the National Trophy) and Ron Norton of Inland Manufacturing presents SSG. Cleveland an Inland replica of famed WWII 1911 .45ACP pistol.

 

Inland Manufacturing also conducted a drawing for all the competitors entered in the .30 caliber M1 CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) Carbine Match at Camp Perry.

 

Raymond Vaughn of Gwynn Oak, MD won the drawing and received a Model 1945 M1 Inland Manufacturing .30 caliber carbine ($1049.00 MSRP). Here is where karma really comes in play; Vaughn was competing at the Carbine Match with a genuine original WWII Inland manufactured .30 caliber carbine!

 

Charles Brown of MKS Supply says “the National Championships at Camp Perry are the recognized crown jewel of American firearm competitions. We are very honored to present these awards to the shooters at this great competition event.”

Hunter Numbers Up 9% Between 2006 and 2011, Preliminary National Report Shows

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The number of hunters age 16 and older in the United States increased 9 percent between 2006 and 2011, reversing a previous downward trend, a preliminary report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and Department of the Interior shows.

Preliminary figures show an increase from 12.5 million hunters in 2006 to 13.7 million in 2011. Final data will be included in the upcoming USFWS 2011 National Survey Report. USFWS has conducted a national survey every five years since 1955, with the last being the 2006 National Survey, released in 2007.

“This increase in hunters mirrors what our members are telling us — strong sales to an expanding consumer base,” said Steve Sanetti, president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry. “There is increased interest in firearm ownership — from customers new to the market to existing customers looking for the newest products. Purchases are being made for the enjoyment of recreational target shooting sports — such as sporting clays, IDPA and 3-gun competitions — as well as for personal protection, and, as these figures show us, for hunting.”

The preliminary report also shows that hunters spent an average of 21 days pursuing wild game in 2011. Additionally, the report shows that hunters spent $34 billion on trips, firearms and equipment, licenses and other items to support their hunting activities in 2011.

The national survey is paid for by sportsmen through the use of Pittman-Robertson Federal Aid dollars. This year is significant as it is the 75th anniversary of the Pittman-Robertson Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act.
