Z-MAX Ammo: Z-MAX Bullets Explained

Hornady Zombie Max (Z-MAX) ammunition was a special line created for killing zombies. Yes, that’s right – zombies. No longer in production, this specialty ammo was basically a fun gimmick with surprisingly good performance. Paired with a cool packaging design, Hornady Z-MAX made for a great conversation piece and was very popular among shooters – mainly because nobody knew how long it would be in production. Here are some of the features and uses of these fun zombie bullets (other than zombie control, of course). The official webpage also has a fun video and a great disclaimer that’s worth a read..
 

Levergun Loads: .44 WCF

In 1860, B. Tyler Henry received a patent for a truly landmark rifle. With a lever-operated action using a copper cartridge case, the Model of 1860 (or “.44 Henry”) was born. This first true levergun, chambered in .44 Rimfire, offered previously unheard-of firepower. When Oliver Winchester lent his name to a levergun, the first Winchester came forth as the 1866, or as it was soon called due to its brass frame, the Yellow Boy. Winchester set the stage for a whole line of great leverguns. The 1860 and 1866 were both great steps forward but the best was yet to come — the 1873 Winchester.
 

An Ode to the 28-Gauge

Being candid, I was reluctant to follow the recommendation of my fellow gun writer. As a longtime admirer of the ubiquitous 20-gauge, I knew it capabilities—well. To me, it made little sense drifting from the known for the then-unfamiliar, and the thought of doing so made me uncomfortable—especially when abroad. He was adamant, though, and through positive peer pressure convinced me that the petite 28-gauge would sacrifice nothing to the 20 in those Cordoba, Argentina, fields. He was right. When targeting the seemingly limitless doves, pigeons and other crop raiders at realistic ranges, there wasn’t one that was safe from over-under barrels of the 28-gauge Beretta I clutched.

You may wonder why we are taking time from actual bills to instead cover a House resolution. We did cover one House resolution and one Senate resolution at times earlier this year, though, and we did so because while they didn’t have the force of law, they could still tilt the playing field – and voting for or against them means elected officials are taking a stand.
 

How to Choose a Hunting Bullet

Choosing the correct bullet for the game at hand may be a daunting task for the beginning hunter. But it doesn’t have to be, despite the critical nature of the choice. We seek information from a variety of sources: ads in magazines that make their claims about their products, articles about successful hunts, conversations with more experienced hunters and the Internet, where some blogs are rife with unsubstantiated opinions. It’s no wonder some hunters may be confused. With so much conflicting information, what can we believe? It’s really not that complicated, despite the importance of the decision.

Gun sales in Lubbock have increased drastically since March, according to license to carry instructors from West Texas Justice and Lone Star Shooting. The United States has seen a lot of unrest over the past few months, and many have attributed the pandemic and riots to this recent increase. A Girl and a Gun is a shooting club established on woman-on-woman firearm training. Christina Scott, their facilitator and license to carry instructor, said there has been a rise in women interested in taking up the sport since the pandemic started.
 

AK: A conversation about an old gun sparks memories of a childhood spent outdoors

“Looking for anything in particular?” inquired the elderly fellow who worked the used-gun section of the store. It seems I never realize in the moment that I, too, am an elderly fellow.

“Mostly I look for old stuff,” I said. “You never know when an old Parker or L.C. Smith might get drug out of a mothballed closet, forgotten until the grandchildren decide to sell the home.”



The wistful look that drifted across his face replaced the spoken words that both of us stood maybe a long pistol shot from that mortal certainty.

“My grandfather had a Lefever,” he said.

Daniel M. Lefever introduced American wingshooters to the first American hammerless side-by-side shotgun in 1878.





 

WA Gun Prohibition Lobby Group Does Gun Rights Voters a Favor

The Seattle-based Alliance for Gun Responsibility, a billionaire-backed gun prohibition lobbying group, has done Evergreen State conservatives—especially gun owners—a huge favor by publishing its “2020 Legislative Score Card.”

That this information is available right before the Aug. 4 primary election is no small thing. One glance up and down the list tells gun owners who not to vote for in state legislative races, and the formula is easy.
 

The Importance of Awareness and Avoidance for Personal Defense

If the armed citizen takes personal defense seriously, there is a lot to learn. They certainly have to learn to shoot their chosen defensive firearm accurately and efficiently. They have to learn defensive tactics and techniques that will help with surviving a deadly encounter. In spite of all of this, our goal should be to avoid a confrontation with criminals whenever possible. Now I can’t speak for the ladies, but I do know that many men daydream about doing heroic things—the hero to the rescue, if you will.

It can be difficult to keep up with the politically correct rules these days. Can we follow the evidence wherever it leads, or may we simply reject it, as the anti-Second Amendment groups do, when it is inconvenient to our politics? Are we permitted to bring religion into politics, or must it be shunned completely? All too often, the answers to questions like these, according to the mainstream media, seem to be: “Whatever helps the gun-control movement at any given moment.”

In this hyperbolic age of Twitter memes, Instagram-polished images and one-sided mainstream media narratives, it is refreshing to know that honest outrage—sometimes a real breath of fresh air—can still rise right through the loud, partisan demagoguery of our current politics to give us Mark Robinson’s four-minute, tell-it-like-it-is speech to, of all the American forums, the Greensboro City Council in North Carolina.

Yesterday, July 27th, the California Legislature reconvened from the extended summer recess. As you recall, just prior to recess, the California Assembly sent AB 88, the Public Safety Budget Trailer Bill that was riddled with anti-gun language, back to the Senate for additional work. Unfortunately, when it comes to gun control and the California Legislature, some things never change. The Assembly is expected to vote this week on SB 118, another Public Safety Trailer Bill with identical anti-gun provisions.

U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) knows more than most about firearms and how they operate. That didn’t stop her, however, from joining Moms Demand Action’s Shannon Watts on Everytown for Gun Safety’s Veepstakes to peddle misstatements and untruths about guns. She’s trying out to be presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate and Watts played along.

Remington, which supplies weapons for hunting, shooting sports, law enforcement and the military, sought chapter 11 protection and will try to sell its business at a time when civil unrest and worries about personal safety have driven firearm sales to record highs.

New land annexed into the city of Bemidji this year has diversified the municipality, adding more rural property to the mix. As a result, former township residents are no longer able to hunt the way they used to. That was the subject of a Bemidji City Council work session Monday, where officials responded to an inquiry from new residents about the possibility of hunting. Currently, there are two types of hunting allowed inside the Bemidji area.
