.308 vs 7.62×51 Ammunition My “Serious Purposes” Warning

Opinion .308 vs 7.62×51 Ammunition Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- As most of us know, 5.56×45 is the “militarized” version of the civilian 223 Rem varmint cartridge, developed by Remington in 1957.

Discreet Concealment Errors

Opinion Discreet Concealment Errors Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Carrying pistols concealed in public as you go about your daily business is serious business. A careless moment that inadvertently exposes an otherwise concealed pistol may garner the unwanted attention of a nearby criminal who is eager to wrest the gun from you forcibly, or the attention of a snoopy bystander who is keen to report you to the police. Happy outcomes are unlikely, either way. Last week in MD, a fifty-ish man ...
