BoreSnake vs. Traditional Cleaning Kit

I have a nephew and some shooting buddies that rely almost totally on bore snakes for cleaning their shotguns.  While a bore snake is a great choice for a quick cleaning or in-between complete cleanings, it should not be a replacement for a thorough brush and mop session. There are a few main gun-cleaning concepts that demonstrate why the gun ...

Seeing Through Your Shotgun

In all of the shotgun sports, any instructor or veteran will tell you that you should be shooting with both eyes open – I’m piling on.  You absolutely should shoot with both eyes open for a multitude of reasons, but you may be struggling with the site picture that doing so presents.  Some talk about seeing two barrels, others about ...
