Guns For The Working Cowboy

Shape it was in but it got the job done. Fiction writers, moving pictures and television, and some gun writers as well, have so glamorized the so-called Western guns that many people who know guns resent us and our guns because they believe that we believe that our guns are the best guns for all uses. They think we think that our saddle-scarred ,30-30s are the best possible hunting rifles, that our single action hawglaigs are the best possible sideurms for everything from targets to taming...

I happen to he a country resident of New ork State, and I can tell you that getting a pistol permit under the Sullivan Law is a long drawn out process. There are at least five forms to be filled out then the waiting begins. It takes at least 90 days, while the Judge, Sheriff, Chief of Police, and an official in Albany decide if you are qualified to have the permit. The permit is worth waiting for though, if you live in the country, because you get a permit that is good for the rest of your...

THE SO-CALLED big 7 mm cartridges are not new. The first one I used and tested was the .275 H amp H next, the .276 and .280 Dubiel, when I worked with John Dubiel on these fine loads. The .276 was still a 7 mm made from the .275 H amp H case. The .280 Dubiel was a larger bore, going a full .2885 groove diameter. I experimented a great deal with all three at the time, and also used them on big game. Finally, in company with C. M. Oneil and Don Hopkins, we developed the .285 O.K.H., first on a...

GUNS HAVE A FASCINATION for many people. But one of the most fascinating fields of rifle-dom is the stocking of lilies with various kinds of woods. The stock is one of the most obvious features of any kind of firearm, but more so on a rifle than on a shotgun or pistol, simply because there is more of it. A stock can be carved, checkered, inlayed, or shaped to certain styles and shapes, all of which help to set it apart as an individual thing. On the other hand, you can look for certain pieces...
