The June issue of Shooting Illustrated, on newsstands now, covers two new LCR options from Ruger, along with a big-bore sized for carry in the new Redhawk. While a 2.75-pound, .44 Mag. revolver might not immediately strike you as a concealed-carry handgun, for those in bear country or who face larger threats the extra power may come in handy. The new LCR models include a 9 mm revolver, an excellent backup gun for those who already stock 9 mm, and the 3-inch LCRx, which sports a longer barrel and an exposed hammer for times when single-action accuracy is required.
With a double-action-only revolver, a proper trigger pull is critical to accurate hits on target. Learning how to maximize the effectiveness of any firearm—pistol or rifle—starts with proper trigger manipulation, and while there are many schools of thought on how to best achieve that manipulation, George Harris breaks it down to the basics.
Proper trigger activation will help you wring the most out of Remington’s new Model 700 Tactical Chassis rifle, although the rifle is already just fine when it comes to accuracy. Gary Paul Johnston provides a thorough overview of the Tactical chassis, but also takes the rifle out in the field to see how it performs—with and without a suppressor, which is easily added thanks to the threaded barrel.
While the custom AR-15 built by Bryce M. Towsley has a threaded barrel, you won’t find a suppressor mounted. Towsley built this AR with weight-reduction in mind, using space-age materials and ultralight components to produce a featherweight carbine. A full parts list, along with Towsley’s rationale for each choice, accompanies the article, and a companion piece with a more budget-friendly build is available at ShootingIllustrated.com here.
Whether you use an ultralight AR-15, a tactical bolt action or a polymer-frame revolver, getting good training is key to success in any endeavor.
