There was no shortage of new hunting guns and optics on display at the 2016 NRA Convention. Guns.com found plenty on day one.
Henry Repeating Arms Big Boy Carbine oozes quality and visual appeal, but this modern shooter was skeptical at first about the range experience.
The lever-gun is a staple of American culture and deer hunters and one of the most widely spread but often forgotten of these designs is the Savage 99.
The Big Boy Steel is handsome in a beard-and-flannel kind of way and is a rifle that can be used, abused, hunted, and passed from one generation to another.
This lady at the range didn’t have a clue what she was doing and nobody was helping her. Certain things should be rudimentary even if they’re not always apparent.
The Henry rifle is the perfect tool to bring new shooters into the fold, especially with its reasonable $450 MSRP. Hand them one of these rifles, and they’ll keep asking you for more and more ammo.
The typically snappy .357 Magnum is easily tamed by this luminous lever-action brass beast. If you thought firing the normally stout Magnum was paradoxical, try firing a .38 Special round from the Henry.
The Legacy of “The Gun that Won the West” lives on with the Rossi M92. With the Rossi in hand you instantly walk a little taller, talk a little slower and “pardner” sneaks into your vernacular. It seems like every time I hold this gun I catch myself saying, “Fill your hand…”
With visions and fantasies of yesteryear this gun is a dream come true. As a Cowboy Action Shooter, this gun will be the envy of many friends.
Mad Max was released in 1979. The Mossberg 464 SPX, 34 years later, would have been perfect for the film. Its twenty first century plastic looks odd on the nineteenth century frame. But there’s more to the new .30-30 than its Hollywood potential.
