Rifle Visions — Views of Escapes into the Backcountry

With so many Americans stuck at home under governmental lockdown orders, we’re offering a visual escape from the stay-at-home pandemic doldrums. Here are some great rifle-centric outdoor photos courtesy of Nightforce Optics. Perhaps these “gunscapes” will encourage you to grab your rifle and head out into the wilderness when Americans’ freedom of mobility/travel is finally restored. The good news is the same states are opening ranges again.

These fine photographs remind us of the lure of the great outdoors for a rifleman. We hope that soon our readers will once again be able to experience the grandeur of America’s mountains and wild backcountry. These images are part of an ongoing series of rifle photos posted on the Nightforce Facebook page. Can you identify the optics, and any of the locations?

Free Fun Targets for Range Sessions as Lock-Downs Ease

Here Ernie Bishop, USA Dealer for SEB Coaxial Rests, teaches a young fellow how to shoot. Fun Targets make the learning experience more enjoyable for kids (and adults too).

Good news folks — many states are starting to lift restrictions on shooting ranges. Subject to common-sense “social distancing”, many public ranges and private shooting facilities are open now, or will be opening up in the near future. We encourage all our readers who are allowed to head to the range to do so. Use the opportunity to get out of the house, enjoy some fresh air, and dust off those skills.

We also encourage you to make fun #1 while at the range. Of course you can do serious load-development too, but we encourage you to test your skills on some fun targets that offer more than just black-on-white bullseyes. Here AccurateShooter.com provides a set of FREE, printable targets for fun sessions at the range. The younger boys and girls in the family will enjoy shooting these targets too.
