In Own Gun Skill Proves Police Life Saver In Scrap With Armed Criminal

POLICE OFFICERS CARRY HANDGUNS for defense. Ideally, the officer should be instructed in how to use his gun quickly and effectively, at short ranges. This instruction is more important than any other, for it may save his life or the lives of others. Recent attention focused on the quick draw leather-slapping techniques of the old west and not-so-okl-west heros has caused many peace officers to try to become proficient in this skill of fast shooting. In Monroe. Louisiana, quick draw gained...

Load Your For Allaround

Author bought .375 Winchester M70 as challenge to self but finds big cartridge has wide practical versatility with many handload combinations. OH, SURE, I needed another rifle like I needed another hole in the head. But if all gun nuts weighed the acquisition of a new shooting iron on the basis of sheer need, there would be lots of empty space on gun racks now bulging with blued steel and polished walnut. The cartridge and its possibilities always fascinated me. The British had long claimed it...

The Ronald Press Company

Being a reloader myself, I was slightly appalled to see an illustration in the article on Shotshell Reloading whereby the loader, probably the author, was intent on loading a shell with a pipe in his mouth. Whether or not it was lit is of no consequence, as the cardinal rule of safety when reloading ammo is not to have any live flame in the same room. I trust that this picture does not display the writer's true loading technique. Congratulations on your article on shot-shell reloading. First...

Grease, hitched on an Alaskan 'scope, and hied me out to the range with a couple of boxes of factory ammo. Also, I must confess, with some small misgivings. For, while most of the sound authorities I'd read agreed that the big fellow spoke with undisputed authority, they also said the recoil was nothing to worry a seasoned shooting man. On the other hand, there were those who spoke in hoarse whispers of the big fellow's come-back, and exhibited every evidence of chattering teeth and cold sweat...

Thrown Birds Make Tough Targets

MEXICAN SHOOTERS prefer their sport the hard way. Rifle marksmen use only open sights to cut down on, and hit, live, moving lambs at 500 meters. Pistol enthusiasts fire away at 150 meters, using silhouettes of plucked chickens as targets. And Mexican shotgunners scorn the clay pigeon, principal target of gringo gunners. South of the border, the scattergun target is a live pigeon not released from a cage but thrown into headlong flight by a thrower who uses every trick (and there are many) to...
