Law Enforcement from around the nation's capital come together in a test of skills

Shotgun shooter finds his mark at NRA Tactical Police Competition

Fairfax, Virginia - Under the dark and dingy drizzle-threating skies of Fairfax County arrived a select group of individuals. Men and women who wake every morning with you in mind. Men and women who strap on a gun, pin on a badge, and head out to protect and serve. Today they exercise that duty through another form; competition.

Here for the NRA’s 2014 Fairfax Tactical Police Competition are deputies, sheriffs, constables and agents from around the national's capital. All putting their skills to the test in a race against time and accuracy.

American Rifles tells you why these hunting rifles are a steal

Affordable hunting rifle suggestions from NRA's American Rifleman magazine Never thought you could get your hands on a hunting rifle for a reasonable price? Well John Barsness is here to tell you why you're wrong ...

BARGAIN HUNTING RIFLES
You can pick up a hunting rifle from four of the biggest names in riflemaking for around $300. Sure, that’s a great price, but is it really a bargain? You might be surprised.

Saying American riflemen tend to be conservative is like saying trees tend to grow wood. That’s why new trends in hunting rifles often encounter resistance. One supposedly new way of marketing such guns is by referring to them as “affordable” or “value-priced,” but most Americans simply think of them as “cheap.” That has caused a good deal of grumbling, especially on the Internet, yet another new trend. Since few gun stores feature wood stoves these days, the formerly traditional venue for rifle discussions, shooters whine where we can. Some things never change.
