We will publish articles and links that support the interests of the community.  We do this to  help educate and articulate the importance of staying informed and active in this conversation.  A silient Majority can no longer afford to be silent and have all the decisions made for you and against your best interests.  This way when you come in contact with anti gunners and misinformed paid for by special interest politicians you have a well informed base to lead those conversations in the correct direction.

Furthermore, if you identify a great article or you yourself write a great article, by all means please reach out to us and bring it to our attention.

How many times? 

How often have you heard it said?
“No one uses an AR to Hunt with?”

Many a left leaning Anti Rights politician & celebrities who is often uneducated on the subject of Firearms and barely cognizant of the 2nd Amendment will make these claims.  Famously, Gerarldo, Whoopi, and our inept career politician President old Joe Biden has said, “No one needs an AR15 to hunt deer” but again he is also quoted as recommending the illegal & negligent act of “Shooting a Shotgun in the air from your porch” to scare bad guys away… we doubt he remembers making a comment like that to the public.

The fact is that semi-auto hunting rifles (and pistols) have been around more than a 100yrs now… not just since the AR was invented and then put into service with our Armed Forces in Vietnam and beyond.  However, there has never been a more prolific style or format of rifle in the hands of Civilians, than the AR platform. 

We can recognize that most primary rifle platforms were invented and used in military or National Defense strategies before being allowed or finding their way into civilian hands, it’s been that way since organized government.  The same as Long Bows were once used to defend borders, castles, and fight wars with as well and restricted from use by normal law abiding citizens.  I mean in some countries Long Bows are STILL restricted from use, the Philippines regulates, permits, and serializes Bows and every single Arrow to this day. 

So when the argument inevitably starts with the comments… “These are weapons of war”, that’s usually a comment made by an uneducated Anti Gun advocate who was never taught history from that perspective. Gun Powder itself was invented directly for the purpose of military use before later being applied so that hunters could put Game Meat on the table for their families. 

Side Note… These are nothing like military grade rifles.  “Mine are Better” says my Veitnam Veteran Friend.  Additionally, Military class rifles also have 3M Fire Control and the civilian models are all already restricted to just semi-auto.

The reality is; quietly under the radar… I feel safe saying that more Hunters use an AR while hunting than any other platform nationally.   There are numerous sources that back this up.  The NRA has polled hunters, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has surveyed hunters, and the 2022 Ammunition Consumption Study by Winchester Ammunition also helps us make those claims.  Such data shows us recreationally, that approximately 75% of those who shot Center Fire Rifles in 2021; where shooting ARs (they like to use the term MSRs – Modern Sporting Rifles in an attempt to be PC) and that 60% of Hunters using a Center Fired Rifle, used an AR platform when hunting in 2021.  The Anti Gun politicians will not hear any of that and continue to use misleading talking points on repeat in hopes that no one is paying attention to their lies.  You must hold them accountable for their not so subtle hidden agenda when using misinformation to wholly back their argument.  They want to disarm you, they want to remove your Rights, they want to control you.

This is WHY community matters!

Hunters, who are obviously familiar, comfortable, and commonly using ARs to hunt with, need to stick together, band together and form a voice that can be recognized in the larger conversation about Hunting.  More importantly, be a voice that also stands for our Gun and 2nd Amendment Rights.

Through this “Community”, let’s create awareness as well as a voice for actionable issues that arise from these attempts by politicians to restrict your choices in Hunting, Self Defense, and Recreation. Beware, there are also other Hunters within the larger community who take issue as well. 

Through our Retail Sales (SHOP), through our Consulting and Services we intend to support projects:
~  that bring awareness and promote the use of ARs while hunting as more openly common place,
~  help foster the correct influence needed to educate the middle ground non firearms users about the issues and try and win their support even if they are not firearms users or hunters themselves.
~ to help introduce youth, females, first timers, and Veterans to Hunting.
