Biloxi, Mississippi — (AmmoLand.com) – If you could fire a cannon to celebrate your birthday you know that you would. We joined our friends from Red Jacket Firearms for Will Hayden’s birthday bash and spent the day in Free America shooting machine-guns and cannons. Of course, we took our cameras along to record it for you.
Century Arms stocks the CZ2008 Sporter, a civilian legal version of the Czech CZ58 fighting rifle. This week Paul takes a close look at this unique, semi-automatic firearm. Professor Markel also leads us through the 4-Step drawstroke. Not unlike shooting a free-throw, the draw-stroke can be broken down into several steps. Put all those steps together and you develop one smooth, consistent motion.
