The Dunn Armory… the Ruger© Bearcat©

I recently had the pleasure to spend the holiday season meeting some new friends and accumulating some great stories! My tale today is that of the Ruger Bearcat! Christmas Day was spent eating and talking. During the course of the day, I was invited to see a very beautiful home just over the mountain—the house belongs to a very gracious and talented woman. She and her husband, who was a Master Craftsman, spent years putting their talents and love into their beautiful home. I would imagine that most of the folks reading this article have an appreciation for craftsmanship, woodwork, skills with tools and a paint brush, as well as attention to detail! The house was gorgeous and the artistic touches put into the house were truly impressive! Continue reading

Bug Out Bag Basics–Staying in Touch.

Howes2By Gary Howes
Guns and Gunsmiths editor

Almost every week I read another news story about a hiker or hunter that was injured and couldn’t get help because they were “out of cell range.” I always think to myself “Why don’t more outdoors people know about satellite locator beacons?” I posted this article on G&G a couple of years ago and thought newer readers might be interested.

Just about everyone has a cellphone these days, and the ability to stay in touch with friends and family wherever you are is usually taken for granted. There is no denying that they have also been responsible for saving many lives by allowing stranded or injured hikers, hunters and motorists to get in touch with someone when trouble arises and they need help.

AGI Instructor and Master Gunsmith

In this video AGI Instructor Bob Dunlap demonstrates a surefire way to repair a wooden rifle stock. Of course you could always simply buy a replacement stock, but if the gun has sentimental value, is a rare military rifle, or you just don’t want to spend that much money, repair is always the best option.

The Much-Maligned Raven–Part 1

SiersBy John Siers a.k.a. “Gunsmith Jack”

Most gunsmiths rarely get to see a Raven MP-25 (or its nearly-identical predecessor, the P-25) let alone work on one. Raven Arms went out of business after fire destroyed the Raven plant in 1991, and while the MP-25 continued to be produced for a short while by Phoenix, it was out of production before the end of the century. The gun is generally held in low regard by the shooting sports community, and since used-but-functional Ravens can be found on the market for less than $100, it is hardly worth the money to have a gunsmith repair one of them.

Guns of the Zombie Apocalypse #9

gunnyby Gunny8541

The second installment in a series of the top 10 “zombie” guns. Click here for the previous story in case you just joined us.

M16-M4  AR15 platform. 

 I put the AR “Black Rifles” “Assault Rifles” –whatever — at number 9 rather than number 10 because it is hard for me to put a Russian gun ahead of an American gun.  Truth is that it doesn’t make the list at all if it were not for the fact that just about every guy that can afford one has one (except me).
