    The 1860 Henry, a paradigm-shifting lever action that first appeared in the Civil War era and influenced firearm design well into the future.

  • Canning with wax using this experimental method worked for me as well as any canning jar with a fresh lid, but this is way outside of approved FDA canning practices, so watch/read at your own risk.Prepping 101: Canning Food With Paraffin Wax for Short Term Preservation
    The title of this article sounds more like a scientific paper than a survival topic, and that is by design. I would prefer that the dufus brigade not read it. Canning food demands attention to detail, and though this method of canning is a fringe, do not try this at home kind of idea, it is still canning. You need to pay attention to the details. I would not suggest canning with just paraffin wax except in a genuine "use or or lose it" food survival situation, but it does work.

  • kimber-coverKimber Hunter .308 Deer Rifle (vs. Wild Florida Hogs) - New Gun Review
    With deer season just around the corner, I thought that now would be a good time to review the Kimber Hunter, which is their entry level deer rifle of a very high end line. If you are a regular here at GunsAmerica, you've probably seen the ad for the rifle running on our homepage, and they sent me a review rifle a few months ago. Now that summer is pretty much behind us, it's time to start thinking new deer rifle, and if you have the budget, the $885 MSRP Kimber Hunter is an option you should seek out. Most people think 1911 when they think of Kimber, but the company started with rifles, and it is still a core component of Kimber Firearms today. The Hunter is the same action as the $1,400 Kimber rifles. If are have been looking for an upgrade this deer season, please watch the video.

  • To find range to your target, you could make use of technology and use a scope with integrated laser rangefinder like the Burris Eliminator (bottom.) Or, with some basic math, you can use a scope with a graduated mil-dot or MOA reticle like the Burris Veracity (top.)Optics Buying Guide: Finding Range With A Scope
    You can figure out how far away an object is using your scope, provided its reticle has markings in mil dots or minutes of angle.
