Sammy Davis, medal of honor recipient in front of the american flag at shot show

The Best Thing I Saw at SHOT Show (Flashback)

The SHOT Show is a dizzying array of pistols, rifles, shotguns and all the accessories you can dream of. If there is a better place to window shop for your favorite toys, I've never seen it. As great the show floor may be, the best things seen as SHOT may not be of the showroom floor at all. This is one story where a Medal of Honor recipient brought the room to tears.

A Properly Fit Shotgun Means Success!

As useful as the shotgun is, far too many shooters miss out on its value because they fear rather than welcoming it. Often, this is the result of a poor introduction that includes an ill-fitting gun and too strong of a load. Whether you are starting out or looking to up your game, here is the scoop on getting the proper shotgun fit.

If you like wildlife & wild places, Thank a hunter

You know, here at thebestshootingsite.com, we believe in being great and moral stewards of our natural resources and wild lands. Being based in Arizona is not only fantastic weather-wise, but we have some of the greatest and most effective wildlife management programs and people in the nation.

Almost two decades ago

Almost two decades ago

20 years ago tomorrow at approximately 8:45 AM, the world changed for the worse.

A despicable attack against innocent citizens was perpetrated on the United States by the evil that is extremist Islamic terrorism.

If I had to Choose ONLY ONE THING To Carry...

Being someone that has made my living in the outdoors for the better part of two decades, I’m frequently asked for advice on things such as what type of gun someone should buy, numerous opinions on accessories, scopes and optics, even accessories for vehicles and ATV/UTV‘s.

Since the advent of the television show “survivor” and others that mimic and even take the original premise of the show to the extreme like my new favorite, “Alone,” where 10 people are dropped off in the wilderness and the person that stays out and survives the longest wins, those discussions and questions often revolve around the necessary equipment to survive and stay alive in the woods.

The CVA Cascade is a rather impressive rifle with high quality for <$550.

Here at TheBestShootingSite.com, we believe in great quality at fair prices. As you will recall, we have something in common with Elmer Fudd – we don’t have guns here! 

That doesn’t mean, though, that we don’t have a lot of experience with them and no shooting, hunting, and the outdoors and how important all of those things are to our customers.

Most people can’t afford the “best“ or most costly of anything – let alone guns. The vast majority of folks that hunt and shoot are solidly in the middle class. They don’t have an extra 10 or $12,000 laying around to spend on a custom rifle and then spend another two or $3000 on the best optics to put on it.  Continue reading....
