The Scout Rifle, as conceived by Gunsite founder Jeff Cooper, was supposed to be a short, light, handy rifle, with sufficient power and range to accomplish any reasonable task in the hands of a skillful rifleman. To me, a Scout rifle is sort of a cross between a battle rifle and a hunting rifle a rifle that would excel in both applications - a multi-purpose rifle.

I was five years old sitting beside my father with a .410 shotgun in my lap watching squirrels running a muck for nuts. And, I was out of ammunition. I don't remember how many times I fired but my shoulder was sore. On the way back to camp I asked if I could use the .22 rifle next time. Dad said, "I reckon so." I did and never looked back. No more shotgunning squirrels for me!

In 1969 Richard Gallagher (Rick) opened a small leather shop on Chicago's north side. It was called "The Famous Jackass Leather Company." In 69, Rick was making various leather products to include purses, belts, hats and even jackets and pants. One day a Chicago cop asked Rick to make a shoulder holster. As a shooter, Rick was intrigued and after a lot of research he finally decided that orienting the gun horizontally made more sense. The cop was overjoyed, word spread and soon Rick had a waiting list of cops wanting shoulder holsters and the Jackass Shoulder System was born.

Product Review - How to - Tips

I enjoy hunting with AR style rifles but have found most riflescopes with standard eye relief can make it difficult to access and operate the charging handle. The long eye relief was initially what attracted me to the Bushnell Elite 6500 1.25 - 8 X 32 mm riflescope.

Shoot Like a Man: Standing, Off-Hand   -  11/21/2013

Global Outfitters Outdoor Articles
GO Outdoor University - Vol 2.
By: Richard Mann
Feature Article - Adventure - How to - Tips

Shooting from the standing, off-hand position is the least stable of all but there are some tricks to it. Stand with your body bladed at about a 35 to 45 degree angle to the target. Your support-side foot should be pointed toward the target and your strong-side foot should be at a 90 degree angle to your body or at about a 45 degree angle to the target. Your feet should be about shoulder width apart.

When I was 15 I was walking down an old logging road with my rifle slung over my shoulder - feeling for all the world like Jack O'Connor. (I might have even have been wearing a cowboy hat.) Thick laurel bordered the road and visibly was limited. I hadn't gone far when the largest whitetail buck I'd ever seen bounded out, stopped and looked me right in the eye. I struggled to find my breath and to bring my rifle to bear but was too slow doing both and he was gone. Forever.
