It’s good to be wrong

Everything pointed to the day being wrong. The skies were gray and cloudy, threatening rain, with a steady east wind that harbored ill feelings toward fisherman. The temperature was in the mid-60’s but felt colder because of the clammy breeze. On the eighth day of my vacation, the weather gave...

Grown-up Air Rifles Aren’t Toys

If you are like me, your shooting career started with the venerable “BB” gun. I can still remember the day when my uncle handed over an old Sears J.C. Higgins air rifle with the admonition, “Don’t shoot anything!” Right. It was a solid piece of craftsmanship, not like the piffling stamped-steel...
