Trends in modern ammo technology are allowing smaller cartridges to deliver greater energy and expansion to their targets.

Leon and Frillie Measures got married in 1953. They’ve been dove hunting together even longer — since before 1950, by Leon’s calculations. His thoughts sometimes drift off course like a dove sliding beyond shotgun range of a fidgety hunter. By any Measures, this couple is a team.

Tax-free Second Amendment weekend sees gun sales skyrocket
GUNS
Over the course of Mississippi’s inaugural three-day state mandated tax holiday on guns and ammo, stores across the state saw sales rise by as much as 600 percent.
