Editor’s Note February 2016 – Danielle Breteau
[su_dropcap style=”light” size=”5″]R[/su_dropcap]ecap of the SHOT Show? My feet are still soaking, and our writers are diligently scribbling new and epic stories. Pain, so much good pain.
We’ve settled into 2016 and have a variety of great content planned. This month focuses on historical guns and the people behind them. Next month will feature law enforcement and spring hunting, just in time for turkeys. The women’s annual in April is always highly anticipated, and July’s features dogs with jobs. No matter your shooting passion, we try to cover it in detail at some point during the year.
This month, take a trip down memory lane and meet Tom Threepersons, one of the most famous lawmen of the previous century; learn the deep history of the famous German Karabiner 98 kurz, or K98k, rifle; and look back at the guns of the bygone era of market hunting, which decimated wildlife. Also in this issue, we have packed interview after interview from precision rifle industry leaders who share their tips, tactics and – shhh! – trade secrets.
Now get ready to participate, because it’s time to start looking at targets, holsters and blades. Each year, we reach out to you readers and ask for your best of the best in each of these categories. Our May issue will announce who you have chosen for the Top 10 targets of the year. We are looking for fun, diverse, challenging and original concepts. If you have a brand that you feel deserves this recognition, let us know who they are, which target deserves attention and why. You determine who makes the Top 10, so get to work!
