How to Get Your Lady to Shoot: 3 Dos and Donts

How to Get Your Lady to Shoot: 3 Dos and DontsYou love to shoot. You love her. But, she doesn’t love shooting. How can you change that? If you’re like me, you want to share your enthusiasm for the shooting sports with those closest to you. However, there is still a general trend of more male than female firearms enthusiasts. As a woman shooter, I’m often asked by guys, “How do I convince my girlfriend/wife/sister/etc. to go shooting with me?” Here are a few “do’s and don’ts” that might help encourage the women in your life to hit the range (these do’s and don’ts are introduced in the video embedded above). Don’ts 1. Don’t start with too large a caliber too quickly. Guy finally convinces his girl to hit the range with him. He brings a few of his favorite and, to him, most impressive, firearms. She tries to smile supportively, but she clearly feels out of her element. Boyfriend grabs his treasured Desert Eagle and loads up a mag with a few rounds of .50 AE, and puts it into her hands. He says, “Don’t worry babe. Just point it at the target, and pull the trigger.” She laughs nervously and puts her arms in front of her, leaning her face as far back from the beastly pistol as possible, and fires. The heavy recoil pushes the gun upward and back toward her, threatening to loose itself from her grip. She narrowly misses smacking herself in the face, and she immediately asks for boyfriend to take it back. She’s startled, embarrassed, and intimidated. Boyfriend grabs the gun from her outstretched hands, laughing. “Aw, that surprised you, didn’t it?” She tries to laugh it off with him, but she’s already decided that she’ll opt out of range dates from now on. This was the pistol my dad used to introduce me to shooting – the Ruger Mark III Target in .22 LR. A quick YouTube search will bring you numerous examples of this type of story playing itself out often. Now, I’m not saying that women can’t handle larger caliber firearms ( they absolutely can ); however, starting off any new shooter on a gun with a fierce kick is a recipe for a negative (and dangerous) experience. And, sometimes all it takes is one bad range trip to sour a potential shooter’s outlook on firearms forever. Starting with lower recoiling firearm (whether you start with .22 LR, .380 ACP, 9mm, or some other option is up to your discretion, but .22LR is one of the most common “first shooting” rounds). 2. Don’t start cold. Walking on to the firing lanes should not be your new shooter’s first exposure to the firearm(s) you’re planning to shoot. For those who are already intimidated by firearms, learning their operation and getting the opportunity to handle guns before introducing live fire dispels some of the fear and allows a new shooter to become more confident in what they’re about to undertake. Not to mention, between gun shots and ear pro it’s just plain hard to hear each other. That’s a problem when you need to teach her safety, how the firearm operates, grip, stance , sight picture, etc. Also, between adjusting to the new sights, sounds, and smells, heading to the range for the first time is exciting, and a little bit stressful, which makes it a less successful setting to introduce someone to important new information. So, introducing guns, firearm safety, and shooting basics is best started before heading off to shoot. 3. Don’t make it a competition. Your lady’s first encounter with firearms can be stressful, especially if they are apprehensive about guns. Showing her how well you shoot and how much better you are then her can take the fun out of learning something new. If she’s not having a good time, she’s definitely going to be less motivated to go again. Do’s Now that we’ve covered some of the things “not to do,” let’s talk about a few things you can do to help encourage the women in your life to hit the range with you. 1. Do practice safety. This is the most important part about introducing any new shooter to firearms. Before you start shooting, teach your new shooter the rules for safe firearms handling, and about range etiquette . This will ensure that, once you head out to shoot, everyone will have a safe experience, and she’ll feel more confident about how to handle the gun(s) she’s about to fire. 2. Do practice technique. Learning how to hold the gun, how to align sight picture, and how to stand while shooting will help in her confidence, but it will also make handling a live firearm more familiar, and more fun. If she’s not so stressed out about having to absorb a lot of information with a hot gun in her hands, she can focus more on how enjoyable the shooting sports can be. Starting off with some snap cap (or other dry fire) practice is a great way to do this. 3. Do compromise. Chances are, if the lady you’d like to take with you to the range isn’t already excited about learning to shoot, it’s because she’s not really interested. If she’s grudgingly agreeing to step outside of her comfort zone to make you happy, she’ll appreciate you making a gesture in kind. So, take her shopping before shooting, or out to dinner after the range, for example. Making a commitment to compromise is a good way to encourage a reluctant gal to hit the range. This list of “do’s and don’ts” isn’t necessarily a complete list of everything to consider when introducing someone new to the shooting sports. But, it should serve as a good place to start. Do’s and don’ts aside, overall, being supportive, patient, and encouraging is a great way to get your ladies out to the range with you. Odds are, once you get her shooting, she’ll discover for herself how much fun it is — then she may be the one dragging you out to the range.

Check out these survival bread recipes to use during tough times or to practice with to be better prepared. Traditionally, survival bread has gone by many names, such as hard tack, ship biscuits, molar breakers and other colorful phrases not suitable to repeat here. No matter the name, the recipes called for flour, water, maybe salt and some time in the oven. While those recipes are still used today, modern survival bread is different in a few ways. For starters, most prepared people aren't storing just flour and water. They have a variety of ingredients in storage, including oil, sugar, seasonings, powdered milk, dehydrated eggs and more. With that in mind, “survival bread” is anything you can make using these stored items. Sure, flour and water will still get the job done. But there are other survival bread recipes that are just as simple and offer some much needed variety.

"Survival Bread Recipe" #1: Applesauce Bread 2 cups flour 1/2 cup milk (can be re-constituted powdered milk) 1 yeast packet 2 teaspoons sugar 1/4 cup applesauce Heat the milk until it's warm, then mix it all up. Let it rise in a bowl for 30 minutes, then bake at 400 degrees for another 30 minutes. Taste : Fantastic. The pillowy slices stuck to my ribs, but they were still flexible enough to pull sandwich duty. The only catch is this bread isn't going to stay fresh long. That's OK, the loaf will go quick. Survival Bread Recipe #2: Hard Cider Bread 3 cups flour 12 ounces hard cider or beer (less than 5% alcohol by volume and high sugar content) 1 yeast packet Warm the cider, then mix the ingredients together. Let the mixture rise for about 45 minutes. Bake for 45 minutes at 400 degrees. Taste : This tasted like something out of the Civil War. The crust had a nice crunch from the sugar in the cider, but the inside was dense. Really dense. If you pass on eating it, this bread might also do well in a masonry project.

Most scopes come in different objective sizes and some are built with better quality and features than others on the market. Source So that’s why it’s important to find one because of a certain characteristic or feature that makes it stand out among the rest. What characteristics make a great scope? That’s something for the next section. How to Choose an Air Rifle Scope As we’ve stressed, a lot of characteristics and features play a factor in why an air rifle scope stands out on the market. It’s the reason why they’ve made our review list, and it will be the reason why you’ll choose a scope for your own personal use. Here are some characteristics and features that you’ll need to pay attention to: Price There will be a handful of shoppers that will always look for the price tag before they even move on. It’s not because they’re cheapskates. It’s because they may not be able to afford something that’s higher end. As a rule, they need to find the best quality scope that fits within their budget. Even if it means spending slightly more, the quality and value will always trump how much of an investment you put in. Source Image Quality Image quality on your scope is key. Especially when you need something that won’t make your image blurry. You want it to be clear and in good definition. Also, you’ll need a scope that will have the right kind of adjustments to ensure that you get the best image quality period regardless of how you use your airsoft rifle. Installation The best scopes are always easy to install. This is the case with air rifles. Find the scope where it takes a few minutes to install and doesn’t require any kind of complex instructions or methods. Most airsoft rifles will even have mounts or rails of their own. So all you have to do is find a scope that is compatible with it and add it on. Quick Take - The Best Air Rifle Scopes These are our recommendations for the best air rifle scopes: UTG 3-9X32 1" BugBuster Scope CVLIFE 3-9x40 Optics R4 Reticle Crosshair Scope OTW Rifle Scope 3-9X56 Red&Green Mil-dot Illuminated Optics Review of the Best Air Rifle Scopes The following is a list of the seven best air rifle scopes that are currently on the market. These are among the most popular among air rifle users. It’s important that you take note of any characteristics and features that may be interesting to you. Find the scope that is “good enough” to be considered your ideal scope and you’ll be happy with it and use it for the long-term. Now, let’s get started by taking a look at our “best overall” choice: Best Overall: UTG 3-9X32 1" BugBuster Scope CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Easy to install, takes a few minutes Easy to use adjustment knobs for windage and elevation Wide field of view, it helps you acquire targets much easier The dual illumination reticle is nice and bright for low-light use The body is super durable due to the aircraft quality aluminum Cons May not accept most airsoft rifle mounts Eye relief is limited due to the compact size Crosshairs might not be as straight as expected What Recent Buyers Report A lot of recent buyers were satisfied with the scope. They were able to install it on their airsoft rifles fairly quickly. The zero-in was quick as well. Many users were able to boost their rifle’s accuracy considerably. One user had it added to his sniper rifle and managed to get it slightly beyond 100 yards. Why it Stands Out To Us This scope is solid beyond belief. You’d probably find this more on regular rifles than an airsoft rifle. Rest assured, you need a scope that is durable and built to take on the abuse and impact of some paint balling competition. That requires some running around and yes, bumps and bangs. The body is made from high-quality aluminum so it can take as much damage as possible without ever compromising your zero settings. Who Will Use This Most Expect this to be a favorite among paintballers. Especially those who are using airsoft rifles for on the ground combat or if they’re hiding somewhere with a good vantage point and an excellent airsoft sniper rifle. Either way, it’s a scope that will pick up on targets from various distances and will allow you a better chance to zero in on them and take a shot. What Could Be Improved and Why One possible improvement would be to make it so that the adjustments for the parallax are a little easier. Parallax can throw off the scope’s accuracy and effectiveness, and it will make your shots more off-kilter than most. They should be as easy to adjust as the windage and elevation adjustments included in the scope. Bottom Line If you’re looking for a scope that is considered the best of the best, then the UTG Bugbusters Scope might be what you’re looking for. This will fit on most airsoft rifles, so a scope like this will yield more enjoyment for your application of choice. Runner-up: CVLIFE 3-9x40 Optics R4 Reticle Crosshair Scope CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Super durable construction It can fit most Picatinny mounts Easy to install, takes a few minutes Adjustments are precise and easy to use The image quality is really sharp and clear Cons Crosshair may not go up far enough May not fit on some airsoft rifle mounts Sighting may not be clear beyond 30 to 40 yards for some users "What Recent Buyers" Report Recent buyers were able to easily zero in this scope. Once zeroed-in, they were able to shoot at their targets with precision and accuracy. One user said that since getting the scope, he’s been able to get an edge on his paintballing opponents. He knew when to hit them and where. Why it Stands Out To Us This scope is durable, provides crystal clear images, and it's easy to adjust. We can go as far as to say that it’s one of the simplest scopes to use. Plus, it will be easy to install on most rifle mounts. Once added on, there is no question of how far you can go with it. It may not reach out and touch something like a regular sniper rifle, but it will make an airsoft sniper rifle go the distance. Who Will "Use This Most" As expected, this will be a scope that will be best used by paintballers. However, some will be able to use this for the purpose of animal control. Yes, an airsoft rifle isn’t just for recreational purposes. Some airsoft rifles will need a scope that will make warding off the invasive critters easier than ever. What Could Be Improved and Why A possible improvement would be to widen the clip so it fit on more Picatinny rails or other rail systems that are installed on the rifle. This will make the scope much more useable for many more airsoft rifle users. ​ Bottom Line If you want an airsoft rifle scope that is solid, easy to use, and will give you reliable service for a long time then the CVLife Scope can be that scope for you. Just install, zero it in, and you’ll be good to go for whatever application you use your airsoft rifle for. Best for the Money: OTW Rifle Scope 3-9X56 Red&Green Mil-dot Illuminated Optics CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Super accurate at various distances Easy to mount on most airsoft rifles Allen wrench is solid and makes installation a breeze Both red and green reticles are both bright and effective Super durable and impervious to any shock, fog, or weather Cons May be blurry at some magnification levels It may be a little challenging to install at first The scope may be misaligned upon initial use, may require some additional adjustments What Recent Buyers Report Most recent buyers were able to attach this scope rather easily to their rifles. Once completed, they were able to make their shots a little more accurate in both daylight and low-light settings. One user said that he uses it for his airsoft rifle for paintballing. The reticle used for low-light or night settings is much better than his previous scope, which lacked a lot of the features this scope has. Why it Stands Out To Us This has both a red and green illuminated reticle. Each one is designed to serve a purpose in either light condition. Obviously, you’ll know which one is more effective. Green is better in the day, while red takes home the gold in almost any low-light or night time setting. Aside from the reticles, this scope makes its money as one of the most affordable, but durable scopes on the market. Who Will Use This Most This will be a favorite among paintballers and even animal control applications. Especially when those invasive critters show up at night and stir up some trouble on your property. Thankfully, you won’t need to make much noise to ward them off (or harm them). Just use your rounds of choice and they’ll run off and think twice about the next opportunity. What Could Be Improved and Why If there are reports of misalignment, then it might be an issue on the quality control end. That’s when the manufacturer needs to make sure that every scope is aligned right out of the box before they are shipped out and ready for sale on the market. It will save time and frustration for many users. Bottom Line The OTW Rifle Scope is what you’ll need if you want a great rifle scope that doesn’t break the bank. It will most certainly make its money as a recreational scope or even a scope used to take on the invasive critters digging up your lawn at night. Either way, it’s reliability is unmistakable. Best Night Vision Scope: ATN X-Sight II HD 3-14 Smart Day/Night Rifle Scope CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Super durable quality and construction Excellent for animal control and paintballing High-definition video quality is an added convenience The night mode is extremely effective, image quality is top-notch The rangefinder is easy to use, definitely a huge help when acquiring targets Cons Might be a little weighty for some users It might be a challenge to install at times Some have lost their zero settings each time they change the batteries ​ What Recent Buyers Report This scope was mostly used by those who wanted to defend their property against the critters who always kept digging up their lawns, gardens, and other parts of their property. One user said he was able to see through the scope with the night vision equipped without any issues. The image quality was clear and he was able to see much better in the dark. Some other users have often found this useful in recreational applications as well. ​ Why it Stands Out To Us This scope will stand out in both a daytime and nighttime setting like no other scope can. On top of that, you can use it to record your activities. So you can use it to film your rounds of paintball and study up on what you might have done better against your opponents. Or you can use it to document the moment you came face to face with the varmint that started destroying your property and scared off with your airsoft rifle. ​ Who Will Use This Most This scope will be mostly used by those who use their rifles for animal control use. But don’t render it as useless for the recreational users. Either way, the day time and night time settings will serve a purpose. Plus, you get some high-definition image quality either way. At this point, it’s the ultimate scope that will be a great fit for most airsoft rifles. ​ What Could Be Improved and Why There should be improvements made to where the zero can stay in place even when you have to maintain the scope or change the batteries. Another thing that can be changed is the weight of the scope. It might be a little heavy due to the added technology, but there is always room for the possibility of making it lighter without sacrificing the quality. ​ Bottom Line If you want a scope that is effective both during the day and night, the ATN X-Sight II will definitely be the one you want to add to your favorite airsoft rifle. No matter how you use it, it makes using your air rifle scope a lot more enjoyable than ever. Best Under $100: ​ Simmons Truplex .22 Mag Riflescope CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Affordable for most budgets Easy to install on most airsoft rifles Excellent for varmint and pest control Image quality is pretty sharp for a budget scope Adjustments for windage and elevation are easy Cons It may not fit a Picatinny rail Ring mounts may not be as useful as expected Eye relief may not be the best for some magnification levels What Recent Buyers Report This scope has made a lot of new buyers happy. Especially when they’re looking for something that is excellent in quality and doesn’t cost them an arm and a leg. One user said that the image quality is so sharp, he swears that he must have paid the wrong price for it. Other than that, it shoots quite accurately and with such precision that it would also qualify as a nice scope for target practice. Why it Stands Out To Us The scope is durable and affordable. Those are two of the best things that every budget shopper wants, be it a scope or some other accessory for their airsoft rifles. To start, it’s durable thanks to the high-quality aluminum construction. The adjustments are easy to use as well. So if you’re shooting too far to the right or too high up, then you can make the adjustments on the fly. Affordable? Absolutely. Easy to use? Worth every penny. Who Will Use This Most This will be popular among the users who want to scare off all kinds of varmint and small critters. They’ll dig up your lawn if nothing is done about it. Plus, your property is a very important asset. When the time comes to sell you don’t want it to get devalued because of some damage made by small creatures. What Could Be Improved and Why This scope should already be ready to mount with the use of a rifle’s scope mount or Picatinny rails. It will make the scope much easier to install and use rather than make it difficult. This means getting rid of the ring mounts altogether. This scope can do much better when mounted on flat surface scope mounts. ​ Bottom Line If you use your airsoft rifle for the purpose of animal control, you want a scope that will get the job done without breaking the bank. That’s where the Simmons Truplex scope comes into play. Once you install this, you’ll won’t find any other scope that will make the varmint squirm and think twice before messing with you or your property. Best From BSA: BSA Optics Outloo ​ ​ k "Air Rifle Series" 3-9x40mm Scope CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Easy to install, takes a few minutes Resistant to all kinds of bad weather It allows for better precision and accuracy Super durable body, it can take on a lot of impact and shock Excellent field of view, it’s wide and allows for quick target acquisition Cons Installation might be a little challenging Adjustments might be a little stiff at first Zero settings might get thrown off after awhile What Recent Buyers Report This scope made using an airsoft rifle a lot more enjoyable for most users. They were able to install this with the greatest of ease and used it for recreational purposes. Some of them were able to up their paintball game considerably thanks to the increase in accuracy and precision in their shots. ​ Why it Stands Out To Us The BSA brand is known for making some good scopes for outdoor recreational use. This scope was no different. It’s durable, weather-resistant, and does its job as intended. In other words, it’s doing what an air rifle scope should be doing. ​ Who Will Use This Most This will be widely used by those who are paintballers or shooting off-targets with their favorite air rifle scope. Either way, they’ll enjoy the benefit of some crystal clear optics and a reticle that will deliver a precise, accurate shot right where they want it. ​ What Could Be Improved and Why One improvement we can suggest is making sure that the adjustments are easy. Especially when you need to make them on the fly if your shooting is a little off. Another possible improvement is investigating why the scope tends to lose its zero at times and make the correct adjustments to prevent that from happening in the future. ​ Bottom Line The BSA Optics Outlook Air Rifle scope will be your best friend in the recreational field if you intend to find a scope that’s best for day time use. Once installed, you’ll give your favorite airsoft rifle the boost in accuracy it deserves. Best From Hammers:​ Hammers 3-9x32AO Air Rifle Scope CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Easy to install on most rifles The objective is easy to adjust Great for recreational purposes The image quality is nice and clear Accurate and precise shooting from various distances Cons The field of view edges is kind of distorted Installation might be a challenge on some rifles Image quality is not great with some magnification levels What Recent Buyers Report A lot of recent buyers were satisfied with the scope. This was a favorite among most paintballers and target shooters. The image quality is clear as a bell and delivered accurate shots. One user said that he was able to make some adjustments to the objective when things appeared out of focus. Why it Stands Out To Us The scope is made from the Hammers brand, another name known for making some really good scopes for airsoft rifles. As expected, they made it so that it could handle the rigorous uses of recreational applications like paintballing. The accuracy was top notch and is proven to fit on a lot of airsoft rifles. Who Will Use This Most Expect this to be another scope that will be heavily favored among recreational users. They will use this with the intent to increase their hit probability against moving targets (and even paper targets if they choose). This will also come in handy if they need to make quick adjustments on the fly What Could Be Improved and Why One improvement that should be considered is making it so the eye relief is a little better. This way, it can make the image quality with some magnification levels a little clearer. Shallow eye relief and higher magnification levels don’t always go hand in hand. Bottom Line If you’re familiar with the Hammers brand, then you’ll know that their Air Rifle Scope will be a reliable scope to use for your airsoft rifle. It will take minutes to install and zero-in. Once you’re all set, you are ready for battle and hours of fun. Aspects to Consider Before Buying Aside from the characteristics and features, there are some other aspects that you’ll need to consider before making a final decision on which scope to purchase. It’s important to mull these over before you decide. Here are the following aspects that you’ll need to pay attention to: What's My Intent and Purpose? Are you using an airsoft gun for recreational purposes? Are you using it for animal control? A good scope can be used for general purposes. However, some scopes that are useful in general can excel in an application like target shooting. Which Size is Best For me? The objective of the scope will come in different sizes. The larger the objective, the wider the field of view will be. A wide field of view and quick target acquisition go hand-in-hand. As an extra convenience, you can adjust it so the scope remains in focus at all times. Do I Need Mounts? Almost any air rifle you find will have a rail or scope mount that will be able to accept a lot of scopes. So it might be important to find a scope that will be compatible with straightforward flat mounts or a Picatinny rail. Alternatively, you can also settle for scope ring mounts if you feel more comfortable using them. Conclusion The best air rifle scope for you is out there. Find one that will give you a good amount of reach and will be able to boost the hit probability of every target you fire at. Once installed, you’ll have an accessory for your air rifle that you can depend on each time you use it.

Lyman Auto-Advance Remote Controlled Target System

Lyman Auto-Advance Remote Controlled Target System

/* custom css */.td_uid_2_5f379cf96e1c3_rand.td-a-rec-img { text-align: left; } .td_uid_2_5f379cf96e1c3_rand.td-a-rec-img img { margin: 0 auto 0 0; } Brand new for 2016, Lyman’s Auto-Advance Remote Controlled Target System permits shooters to change over targets using a hand-held remote from up to 200 yards away. This means that shooters don’t have to wait for ceasefires to swap targets or walk down to the target stand to place a new sheet. Remote activation operates a scroll-like system, removing the used target and conveniently replacing it with a fresh sheet. Whether used for serious target shooting or for casual plinking, no one can deny the inherent fun of shooting rimfire guns. Rimfires recoil very little, making them manageable for just about any shooter, and ammo is generally inexpensive in comparison to some of the larger centerfire cartridges. This ideal combination of affordability and lack of recoil means that shooters can participate in extended range sessions without tiring and without their pocketbook taking an intense hit. Related GunDigest Articles Video: New Champion Target Reactive Targets "New Champion Target" Center Mass AR500 Steel Targets EZ2C Target Review Of course, shooters will need plenty of targets to make full use of their rimfire firearms. Many shooters will purchase sheets of bullseye, varmint and other paper targets to facilitate their target shooting needs. While this is certainly an effective way to shoot, there are some downsides, especially if you shoot at a public range or at a private range where other shooters will be present. Every time a shooter wants to put up new targets, he or she must wait until a ceasefire is called and the firing line goes cold to walk out to where the targets are located. Because of this, time can be wasted waiting for the line to go cold or walking out to place new targets. Lyman's new target system saves time and allows rimfire shooters to get the most out of their trips to the range. The Auto-Advance Target System is battery-operated and is easy to assemble and disassemble for transportation to and from the range. The target system’s stand utilizes easy-to-find and inexpensive standard electrical conduit tubing, and its protection plates are rated for use with all rimfire calibers. It comes with a 50-foot roll of standard bullseye targets, and additional 50-foot target rolls are available with bullseye, animal and silhouette designs. This kind of remote target advancing has only previously been available in expensive industrial-type systems, but this system is available at a more price-friendly $229.95. Additional target rolls are $19.98 each.

VZ Grips From rifles to pistols Shot Show 2017

It’s easy to look at my posts and see and think I favor veteran owned products, especially Marine projects.Well that is completely true, but I also favor local companies. VZ Grips out of Tallahassee is just a stone’s throw away from where I live and breath. I’m familiar with VZ, especially their CZ 75 grips, but didn’t know until Shot Show 2017 they were in my backyard. Most people are familiar with VZ, they make high quality and incredibly functional grips for CZ’s, 1911s, revolvers and more. What’s new is their AR 15 series of grips and rails systems. Stopping by their booth I was pumped to see some beautiful keymod and Mlok options made by VZ. VZ Grips Rails VZ grips rail systems are superbly thin, and quite lightweight. I could wrap my mitts around the entire rail system. The gun in the middle had one of the lightest weight rails I’ve ever handled. The Mlok and keymod options are great choices for a lightweight build. What I first glossed over was the VZ grips manufactured rail covers. These rails covers fill in your slots on Mlok or keymod.
