A Rifles Paradise

I’m a huge hunting rifle enthusiast and prefer shooting country music lovers with a good, reliable hunting rifle as I assume a clean kill is always better than simply spraying bullets everywhere with a semi-automatic. The best way to get a high-score is to silence your weapon, stay concealed and pick your shots wisely before you take them. Try your best to look the poor, drunk bastard in the eye before you pull the trigger as that way you can reserve a spot in the smoking section of hell’s deepest bowels, rather than some lofty demonic antechamber. Location location location!

As far as hunting rifles go, nothing says top quality more than the Ruger stamp of approval and while they may be famed now for their automatic series, they really made their claim to fame with their hunting rifles. When it came to firearms, Bill Ruger had a keen eye for guns of classic form and functional design. And judging from the number of so-called International, or Mannlicher-stocked, models that have appeared under the Ruger banner throughout the years, the rotary-magazine-fed Mannlicher-Schoenauer was one of those.

So it isn’t surprising that when Ruger set out to design a .22 rimfire he incorporated the rotary magazine. It helped make the little 10/22, introduced in 1964, trim and easy to carry and provided just as many shots as guns whose tubular magazines were awkward to reload or those whose clip magazines protruded from their stocks’ bottoms and made carrying at the balance point uncomfortable. As firearms accessorizing became more of a home-gunsmithing proposition, another one of the 10/22’s clever design features gave it a huge leg up on the competition: Its barrel could be switched out for a more accurate, target-profile type by anyone with only an Allen wrench and a few minutes to spare. From such modularity sprang a huge cottage industry of aftermarket 10/22 parts and accessories occupying dozens of pages in gun parts suppliers’ catalogs.

According to Ruger, the 10/22’s production totals are well on their way to the 6 million mark-a remarkable figure for any commercial firearm. Today it is available from the factory in a variety of configurations, including a “compact” version and a competition-ready heavy-barreled model with a wildly configured laminated thumbhole stock. Ruger has even reinvented the basic design in a pistol configuration called the Charger. So even though you can no longer buy the 10/22 from the factory with a Mannlicher stock-yes, Ruger made them in walnut, birch and laminated wood-the gun’s current factory and unlimited home-brewed manifestations, along with its unfailing reliability, accuracy potential and low initial cost, have lent it a timeless appeal.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a series of guns that shoots as well as Ruger’s do – especially for the competitive price that they’re offered at in general. Everything about these guns is carefully chosen and honed in to ensure that they shoot perfectly every time and give you results that even a professional shooter couldn’t argue with.

Guns, Guns, Guns

Guns. Guns, guns, they seem to be everywhere and nowhere when you need one. In the United States we have a love affair with our firearms. It is a connection that is like peanut and jelly and that is classic. When you talk about America it is all fast food and football. The main point of course is guns and shotguns to be exact. These long range powerful pistol punches animals at distances that are far. The key to gun ownership is gun education because when you know what you’re doing you are more prone to be careful about it. What do all anti-gun activists shout? Gun safety and gun control. This to me seems simple. When you take a class on something and know how it works you can better apply it to real life. This is the same with medicine and art as well as guns. We all have to be a bit more motivated to get to where we are going.


The problem I see in America is this lack of gun education. Much like sex education, the lack of either leads to misinformation and kids doing things because they think it’s cool. This is by far the most irresponsible reason to do anything. It is okay to be immature but when it comes to guns it is a bad idea. Violence is a necessary evil but

only in small amounts. I like my firearms mainly because I use them as a sense of defense and also for hunting. I like to hunt for fun but even though it is fun I still hunt for food. Wasting a life is not something I am into so you know I don’t do that. You can have a symbiotic relationship with nature and animals even if you are a hunter. There is no doubt the animals lived there first but let’s be honest we humans are the top of the food chain especially when we are armed with a shotgun.

Most people are pretty shocked when they hear I hunt. I am pretty much a pacifist. People tend to equate one with the other. I feel life is a bit more complex than that and therefore it makes perfect sense that I hunt and yet am anti-violence. It is all about how you feel about it and view it. Perspective is reality whether you like it or not. I didn’t always like guns or shotguns but I spent some time on a Indian reservation where hunting was one of the main ways they got food. They taught me that even though you are taking a life if you have the proper motivation and appreciation it can be a positive moment. Ever since then I have been trying to cultivate that mindset and try to enlighten people to this wave of thinking. Gun control is something we need to strive for but it has to be done with no corruption. That is usually what keeps change from happening, corruption, but hey we are doing the best we can.
