Sniper's Hide Trophy Rifle Black Hills gunstockszoom photo

Even in the “tactical” world, hand craftsmanship is not dead yet. Chad Dixon of Long Rifles Inc. (LRI) is building the lastest Sniper’s Hide Cup Trophy Rifle. These photos show the exquisite stock crafted by Chad and Jesse Kaufman of Black Hills Gunstocks & Engraving. Chad cut the stock on his CNC mill and Jesse did the final sanding and finishing on the wood. Here’s what master craftsman Kaufman had to say about the project: “We delivered the Long Rifles Inc. Mausingfield today! I was so very pleased that Chad and the staff at the shop thought it looked great. It means a lot to be able to support my family and household with the income I receive from my labor. May the Lord bless you all. — Jesse.”

Amazing Rapid-Fire Skills Shown by SFC Brandon Green

SFC Brandon Green USAMU National High Power Champion

2013 High Power National Champion SFC Brandon Green is one of the nation’s best marksmen. Watch this video to see why. In this remarkable video, Brandon shows why he is tough to beat in rapid-fire. Using a Tubb 2000 bolt-action target rifle, Green displays amazing speed working the bolt and then immediately recapturing a rock-steady hold. Our reaction when viewing this video was: “Wow… this guy is beyond good.” We think you’ll agree. Anyone who has shot prone with sling should appreciate the remarkable skills which make Brandon one of the USAMU’s top shooters. Watching this man in action is like watching Michael Jordan in his prime. You’re seeing one of the very best ever…

Can-Can: Hunting with Suppressors Now Legal in Montana

Montana approves hunting with silencers and suppressors

Montana sportsmen can now legally use suppressor-equipped firearms when hunting game (provided the silencer was obtained in compliance with Federal laws). Montana Governor Steve Bullock recently signed HB 250, a new law allowing the use of sound moderators (aka silencers, cans, or suppressors) when hunting all types of game animals in the state. The enactment of this legislation immediately brings Montana in line with the 34 other states that currently allow the use of suppressors for hunting wildlife. Note, in all those states, you must still comply with federal regulations governing ownership of silencers and obtain a tax stamp for each suppressor you own.
