Gun and Game
More firepower, improved accuracy and smart integrated accessories that connect to command and control networks are the headline features of the new integrated assault rifle concept that Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) and Colt Canada have developed for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).
The prototype, in development since 2009 through the Soldier Integrated Precision Effects Systems (SIPES) project, includes a firing mechanism to shoot lightweight cased telescoped ammunition, a secondary effects module for increased firepower and a NATO standard power and data rail to integrate accessories like electro-optical sights and position sensors.
Other than the trigger group, more specifically the safety, what is the difference between the two? I know Mavericks are made BY Mossberg,(but in China someone told me), so are they sort of like Savage and Stevens? High end and low end, or what?
Lets start by using a basic ammo Hornady, the highest energy ammo of the brand I can find.The .44 magnum in Hornady's 200 grain xtp has a muzzle energy of 999ft lbs. The Hornady's .357 magnum 140 grain lever evolution ammo has a muzzle energy of 644 ft lbs. Which gun would you rather have?The actual shootings data shows the .357 higher in one shot stop percentage.The .357 magnum is 96%,while the .44 magnum is 92%.You have to take into account that the data for the .357 is taken from over 600 shootings,while the .44 magnum is from only around 60 shootings.But what is better?I think that even though a .44 mag will over penetrate,it is still more deadly than the .357. What do you think?
In my circle of friends, I unrightfully get labeled as a gun expert. Suddenly when they have a gun question or comment all the information and years of G&G is supposedly piped into my brain at a moments notice. Don't get me wrong, I'm a pretty knowledgable guy, but when it comes to Mosin or related stuff I just can't muster the enthusiasm for those old soviet shoulder canons. However, when someone talks about going shooting, especially the first time, I'm beyond ecstatic to see the look on their face as they first the first shot, realizing how much fun they just have been missing out on all these years. It happened to Piers Morgan when Ted Nugget took him out....so I when my friend randomly mentioned it at lunch, I jumped at the opportunity.
I'm excited to be once again in Las Vegas for the SHOT Show. I had a hard time sleeping the night before my flight at 7AM, but I wanted a day to really enjoy the environment before the non-stop action packed show gets underway.
The Monday before SHOT there is "Day At The Range", it gives those who have media credentials, or potential buyers the ability to come test out the new stuff. Do you have to twist anyone's arm to come out to Boulder City and just have a great seeing all the new stuff in action.
