This Week on Shooting USA – The History of US Service Rifles

The History of US Service Rifles
The History of US Service Rifles

Nashville, TN -(AmmoLand.com)- The Trapdoor was the first cartridge firing service rifle that was much faster to use than the cap and ball rifles it replaced, even though rapid fire was not the original priority. But the Trapdoor was the beginning of the evolution to better and faster to cycle service rifles, adopted over the next 100 years, that most often put superior firepower in the hands of US troops as they served in two World Wars, Korea, and into Vietnam.

And the first of a new series of Pro Tips from the Army Marksmanship Unit. More Info…

Too bad the Outdoor Channel is only on the highest cost tier on most Cable companies.

My cable company (DirecTV) allows the Outdoor Channel to be added to any tier for just $0.99 per month… which I did. I have a middle-tier package, only because of the local sports channels (low-tier packages do not cover local sports). Best I can do as a compromise – their upper-tier packages are ridiculously expensive!
