This web site is intended to help beginners get started right, or maybe help an inexperienced person get their loved one a sensible hunting rifle for Christmas or a birthday.

A Gun Is A Tool!!
Like any tool, there is a right way and a wrong way to use it. Like any tool, there are certain jobs it is designed for, and certain jobs that it is useless for. Like any tool, a gun can be ‘fine tuned’ to do certain parts of it’s job better than other parts of it’s job. So what does this mean? Read on.
“Within reasonable limits, the cartridge is not all that important. Whether the gnu is thumped with a 6.5 mm, a 7 mm mag, an 8x60 mm or a .375 H&H seldom makes a noticeable difference.
