Tested: Henry All-Weather .30-30 Rifle

In the high mountain desert where my family lives, the changing of the seasons from summer to fall is a beautiful time.airsoft holographic sight As folks around here are preparing for the annual mule deer hunts, the leaves are bursting into cascades of orange, red and gold along the canyon walls and mountain sides. But the common companion of Mother Nature’s slow motion fireworks display is unpredictable weather. During the day at the outdoor shooting range where I worked to prepare this review, the weather went from sunny to foggy, and then on to rain, sleet, snow and blustering cold winds.

And that was just the time before lunch. Then the day worked its way back to sunshine again. I went from short sleeves to insulated rain shell and back again in the course of a single shooting session. It only seems appropriate that on this turbulently gorgeous day I was testing the new All-Weather .30-30 lever-action rifle, replica eotech 552 a gun specifically designed for hunting in less-than-ideal outdoor conditions.

The All-Weather is based on the popular steel receiver Henry .30-30. Built at the Rice Lake, Wis., facility, it utilizes the original rifle’s 20″ round barrel, standard size lever and straight grip shoulder stock. eotech 551 clone for sale The major and minor steel components, including the bore, have been treated with tough industrial grade hard-chrome plating. This plating is permanently bonded to the steel to increase surface hardness and provide greater corrosion resistance than some stainless steels.

This new hard-chrome treatment also resists wear and tear, reduces the friction between moving parts and has a handsome non-reflective matte finish that won’t spook the wildlife. The fore-end and shoulder stock are smooth and free of any texturing or checkering. Instead of a brown finish to the stocks, eotech 553 clone for sale the hardwood has been stained a dark charcoal gray and then treated with a tough, non-reflective water resistant coating that can comfortably handle the rigors of outdoor adventuring. This combination of silver and gray finishes may not be traditional but they certainly are handsome. Sling swivel studs are located on the fore-end cap and the underside of the shoulder stock.

The front sight is a dovetailed steel blade fitted with a brass bead and paired with a fully adjustable Marbles semi-buckhorn style rear sight that sports a white diamond insert. While some folks believe rifle scopes spoil the lines of a lever-action, Henry knows that many of today’s hunters and outdoorsmen want to attach an optic to their lever guns. The receiver is drilled and tapped to accept the 63B aluminum scope mount. eotech replica The 63B has a deep channel down the middle that allows the iron sight to be seen when the scope and rings are removed.

The five-round tubular magazine, located below the barrel, features a removable brass liner with a knurled steel knob. A rubber gasket ensures the brass liner fits tightly in place so that it won’t rattle or fall out. Ammunition is loaded through a cartridge-shaped cut out in the magazine instead of a gate in the receiver. This magazine configuration has the advantage of allowing cartridges to be tipped out through the mouth of the tube instead of having to be cycled through the action.

Thanks to an exposed hammer, this rifle has a single-action trigger. The serrated hammer spur is grooved to accept an extension for use with a scope. The standard size lever loop cycled smoothly and easily causing the bolt to cock the hammer while ejecting spent cartridges. Instead of a half-cock hammer position, the All-Weather employs a transfer bar safety inside the hammer. The transfer bar drops down below the firing pin when the hammer is resting fully forward against the frame. This means that the rifle will not fire unless the hammer is fully cocked and the trigger is pressed. The single-action trigger exhibited no take-up or creep. It broke cleanly with a short stroke and a trigger pull of 5 lbs. 12 oz.

After several years of use (and abuse), the Legend Ultra HD hunting scope I would have paired with this rifle finally gave up the ghost. It was replaced with a new Bushnell Trophy Xtreme X30 2.5-10×44 with a 30 mm tube and a Multi-X reticle and mounted using Weaver Grand Slam Lever Lok high rings. With its bright, clear sight picture and flexible magnification settings, I have every intention of doing my best to wear this scope out too.

Although I’ve been shooting Henry lever-actions for some time now, this was my first opportunity to fire one of the .30-30 Win. models. The All-Weather handled nicely with good balance and an easy swing off the bench. The thick, soft rubber recoil pad works to mitigate the already moderate levels of felt recoil produced by .30-30 Win. cartridges. All of the rifle’s controls operated smoothly and without any problems or issues. There were no ammunition related issues either. The test cartridges, all of which were hunting loads, fed, fired and ejected just like they were supposed to.

Standard .30-30 Win. factory loads have been commonly topped with flat nose 150-gr. and 170-gr. bullets for decades. Current production hunting loads sport bullet weights ranging from 125-gr. to 190-gr. with bullet styles including soft points, hollow points and fast opening ballistic tips. I went with two lightweight loads and one heavy hitter for formal bench rested 5-shot group accuracy testing at 100 yds. with the optic in place. Bullet velocity was measured for 10 shots using achronograph.

new Full Boar 140-gr. Monoflex load flew along at a muzzle velocity of 2399-fps. to produce the best single group of 1.62″ and best five group average of 1.79″. Heavy 190-gr. jacketed flat-nose soft points generated 2058-fps. with an average group size of 1.82″. Super-X 150-gr. Power Point soft points traveled at 2188-fps. with a group average of 1.98″.

The new Henry Repeating Arms All-Weather .30-30 is an excellent example of how this gun company continues to provide high quality, classically styled rifles while introducing the innovative upgrades their customers want. My wife says this is one of the best looking rifles I’ve worked with over the years, and I have to agree. The total hard chrome treatment of the metal parts and weatherproofed stocks make this handy, comfortable to shoot lever action an ideal companion for long walks in the woods and hunting excursions all year round. I hope the All-Weather finish will find its way onto other models soon.

Customized Atlanta Braves Jersey Obama pushes values and prods Trump in final, emotional address

With a final call of his campaign mantra “Yes We Can,” President Barack Obama
Customized Atlanta Braves Jersey urged Americans on Tuesday to stand up for U.S. values and reject discrimination as the United States transitions to the presidency of Republican Donald Trump.Men’s Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey.

In an emotional speech in which he thanked his family and declared his time as president the honor of his life, Obama gently prodded the public to embrace his vision of progress while repudiating some of the policies that Trump promoted during his campaign for the White House.

“So just as we, as citizens, must remain vigilant against external aggression, we must guard against a weakening of the values that make us who we are,” Obama told a crowd of 18,000 in his hometown of Chicago, where he celebrated his
Custom Diamondbacks Jersey election in 2008 as the first black president of the United States.

Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, proposed temporarily banning Muslims from entering the country, building a wall on the border with Mexico, upending a global deal to fight climate change and dismantling Obama’s healthcare reform law.

Obama made clear his opposition to those positions during fiery campaign speeches for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but has
Custom Braves Jersey struck a more conciliatory tone with Trump since the election.

In his farewell speech, he made clear his positions had not changed and he said his efforts to end the use of torture and close the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay,
Men’s Authentic Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Alternate Black Home Baseball Jersey,Cuba, were part of a broader move to uphold U.S. values.

“That’s why I reject discrimination against Muslim Americans,” he said in a clear reference to Trump that drew applause.

He said bold action was needed to fight global warming and said “science and
Arizona Diamondbacks Personalized Jersey reason” mattered.

“If anyone can put together a plan that is demonstrably better than the improvements we’ve made to our healthcare system, that covers as many people at less cost, I will publicly support it,” he said in another prodding challenge to his successor.

Trump has urged the Republican-controlled Congress to repeal the law right
Youth Customized Arizona Diamondbacks Road Gray Authentic Baseball Jersey Cheap away.

RACE AND NOSTALGIA

Obama, who came to office amid high expectations that his election would heal historic racial divides, acknowledged that was an impossible goal.

“After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America,” he said. “Such a vision, however well-intended, was never realistic. Race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society.”

However, Obama said he remained hopeful about the work that a younger generation would do. “Yes we can,” he said. “Yes we did.”

In an indirect reference to the political work the Democratic Party will have to do to recover after Clinton’s loss, Obama urged racial minorities to seek justice not only for themselves but also for “the middle-aged white man who from the outside may seem like he’s got advantages, but who’s seen his world upended by economic, cultural, and technological change.”

Trump won his election in part by appealing to working-class white men.Men’s Atlanta Braves Majestic White Home Flexbase Authentic Collection Custom Jersey.

First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, his wife Jill Biden, and many current and former White House staff members and campaign workers attended the speech. Obama wiped his eyes as he addressed his wife and thanked his running mate. They all appeared together on stage after the address.

The Chicago visit is Obama’s last scheduled trip as president, and even the final flight on the presidential aircraft was tinged with wistfulness.

It was the president’s 445th “mission” on Air Force One, a perk he has said he will miss when he leaves office, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.

All told, Obama will have spent more than 2,800 hours or 116 days on the plane during his presidency.Men’s Customized Atlanta Braves Authentic Alternate Road Navy Blue Jersey.

Obama plans to remain in Washington for the next two years while his younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school. Sasha, who has an exam on Wednesday, did not attend the speech but her older sister Malia was there.

The president has indicated he wants to give Trump the same space that his predecessor, Republican President George W. Bush, gave Obama after leaving office by not maintaining a high public profile.

Customized Atlanta Braves Jersey Shanghai Disney expands talent pool

The Shanghai Disney Resort, which runs Walt Disney Co’s latest theme park, is
Customized Atlanta Braves Jersey expanding its talent pool by partnering with local educational institutions.Men’s Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey.

The House of the Mouse will enter into agreements with 10 universities, colleges and vocational schools in 2017 by launching the “Shanghai Disney Resort Talent
Custom Diamondbacks Jersey Class”, the company said on Friday.

The move reflects Disney’s larger goal of hiring over 98 percent of its staff locally,
Men’s Authentic Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Alternate Black Home Baseball Jersey,according to Philippe Gas, general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort.

“The essential element in guest satisfaction is the interaction that our 10,000 staff members have with visitors,” Gas said in a news conference in Shanghai.Youth Customized Arizona Diamondbacks Road Gray Authentic Baseball Jersey Cheap.

The theme park will set up joint classes with partner schools by teaching Disney’s best practices in service excellence.

Internship opportunities are up for grabs, where students take on different roles
Custom Braves Jersey including animation designers, makeup artists, accountants and mechanical technicians.

A typical class will host 30 to 50 people. Outstanding participants can apply to intern at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida in the United States, training alongside American peers.

Shanghai Polytechnic University, Shanghai Sanda University, and the Tourism College of Zhejiang are among the first batch of schools to ink the deal.

This year the Shanghai resort plans to recruit 2,000 full-time and part-time employees, with vacancies tailored to the disabled population, said Lara Tiam, vice-president of human resources at the resort.

Long before its grand opening in June 2016, Disney devoted every effort to attract and retain skilled people in China, from job fairs and campus roadshows. Overseas internship opportunities have been offered to 1,200 Chinese students since 2014.

It also targets young Chinese studying in the US in the talent pipeline, training them overseas and bringing them back to a Disneyland closer to home.Men’s Atlanta Braves Majestic White Home Flexbase Authentic Collection Custom Jersey.

But, Disney should be prepared for a high turnover rate, especially in the service and hospitality sector in China. According to the country’s major recruiting
Arizona Diamondbacks Personalized Jersey website 51job.com, average turnover in that sector stood at around 20 percent in 2015.

Keefe Report: The Rest of Remington’s Camel—The RP Pistol

The R51 was the camel’s nose under the modern handgun tent for the green laser sights and that particular 9 mm camel had to pull its nose back. It seems the Pedersen hesitation lock has tolerances more difficult to hold in manufacturing than Remington thought. The recent announcement of the Remington RP—a pistol that has been on the back burner for some time—demonstrates that Remington is ready to brush its handgun plans off and try again. The gun that became the RP (it didn’t have a name the last time I saw it) was handed to me several years ago in a dark conference room at the eotech airsoft. Timing is everything, and Remington saw enough success with the re-launch of the R51 to get back on the RP camel.

Remington brought aboard Leland Nichols to develop a line of handguns. Ever heard of the Smith & Wesson M&P pistol? That happened under Leland’s watch while in Springfield, Mass.. Of course, the eotech replica for sale, based on the M1911, has been hugely successful, but not all consumers want an M1911. The first new design was the R51, a gun that I have written about both pro and con, and one that will be featured in the magazine soon. There were production issues with the R51 that pretty much derailed Remington’s entire master plan for handgun launches. Problems have been addressed, as evidenced by how the re-launched R51 is doing—which is quite well.

The new sample R51 at our offices is performing as advertised, and we have had no hiccups several hundred rounds into the pending review. Too, since the R51 was replica eotech 553, Big Green moved forward with the RM380 pistol, a double-action-only .380 ACP based on the Rohrbaugh.

But the gun being shown by Remington now was where the company wanted to go last year, or even the year before, and probably the year before that. And it is interesting to me that Remington started with what will likely be the largest gun in the firm’s polymer pistol line. And that is a 4.5”-barreled 9 mm Luger with an 18-round magazine capacity—and a .45 ACP that has a magazine capacity of 15 rounds is said to be right on the nine’s heels. The prototype I handled years ago actually did not feel as big in the hands as its magazine capacity would lead you to think. Remington’s engineers managed to keep the grip as small in circumference as allowed by the constraints of the gun’s magazine capacity. It also has a generous beavertail, and the frame allows the shooter to really get his or her hand into the gun. This is a laundry list gun. What features do consumer surveys say purchasers want? Striker-fired, polymer frame, adjustable sights, generous magazine capacity, an articulated blade safety in the trigger, and a trigger with a short reset. It appears the RP has them all.

When it comes to engineering handguns it is easier to start big and go smaller. And no doubt that is Remington’s long-term plan for the RP platform. Look for double-stack mid-size and compact guns in the future. It was a bold move to come out with a full-size in both .45 ACP and 9 mm when all people seem to want to talk about is the 9 mm. eotech 556 clone for sale We have requested a sample of the RP, and are looking forward to range time with it.

The RP is indicative of where Remington has wanted to go with a full line of handguns, and while not the entire camel, it is certainly a dromedary step in the right direction.

Hornady Again Named Ammunition Manufacturer of Year

Custom Falcons Jersey Here’s how to outsmart fake news in your Facebook feed

Just because it’s on the internet doesn’t make it true. It seems so simple, but if
Custom Texans Jersey everyone knew that, Facebook and Google wouldn’t have to pull bogus news sites from their advertising algorithms and people wouldn’t breathlessly share stories that claim Donald Trump is a secret lizard person or Hillary Clinton is an android in a pantsuit.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Fake news is actually really easy to spot — if you know how. Consider this your New Media Literacy Guide.
NOTE: As we put this together, we sought the input of two communications experts: Dr. Melissa Zimdars, an associate professor at Merrimack College in Massachusetts whose dynamic list of unreliable news sites has gone viral, and

Alexios Mantzarlis, the head of the International Fact-Checking Network at the Poynter Institute.
First, know the different types of misleading and false news

1. Fake news

These are the easiest to debunk and often come from known sham sites that are designed to look like real news outlets. They may include misleading photographs and headlines that, at first read, sound like they could be real.
Men’s Nike Custom Made Houston Texans Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt.

2. Misleading news

These are the hardest to debunk, because they often contain a kernel of truth: A fact, event or quote that has been taken out of context. Look for sensational
Customized Atlanta Falcons Jersey headlines that aren’t supported by the information in the article.

3. Highly partisan news

A type of misleading news, this may be an interpretation of a real news event where the facts are manipulated to fit an agenda.

4. Clickbait

The shocking or teasing headlines of these stories trick you into clicking for more information — which may or may not live up to what was promised.

5. Satire

This one is tough, because satire doesn’t pretend to be real and serves a purpose as commentary or entertainment. But if people are not familiar with a satire site,
Women’s Nike Personalized Houston Texans Elite Battle Red Alternate Jersey for Sale,they can share the news as if it is legitimate.

Second, hone your fact-checking skills

Alexios Mantzarlis trains fact-checkers for a living. He says it’s important to have a “healthy amount of skepticism” and to think, really think, before sharing a piece of news.

“If we were a little slower to share and re-tweet content purely based on the headline, we’d go a good way towards combating flasehoods,” he told CNN.

Melissa Zimdars points out that even those who spend a lot of time online aren’t
Custom Falcons Jersey immune to fake content.Men’s Nike Atlanta Falcons Custom Made Elite Alternate All Black Football Jersey Shirt.

“People think this [thinking] applies only for older people,” she told CNN. “I think even early education should be teaching about communication, media and the internet.

Custom Lions Jersey Three offseason priorities for Carolina Panthers

After losing five of its first six games to start the season, Carolina never pieced together the hot streak that would have pushed them back into contention in the
Custom Lions Jersey NFC playoff race. The Panthers were then officially eliminated from playoff contention in Week 15 — only to be joined on the postseason sideline by the Denver Broncos.

Despite becoming the first Super Bowl teams since 2003 to miss the playoffs the following season, the Broncos and Panthers organizations still boast the front office leadership, veteran coaching staffs and talented core of players to inspire
Custom Packers Jersey faith in their potential for a return to 2015 heights with a Men’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale few adjustments.

Let’s examine three offseason priorities for the Carolina Panthers:

1. Solidify the offensive line: The Broncos and Panthers aren’t alone in their failure to cobble together an adequate blocking unit. Poor offensive line play has shipwrecked multiple would-be Super Bowl contenders, including the Cardinals,
Customized Green Bay Packers Jersey Vikings, Bengals and Colts. After Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware ransacked the tackle tandem of Michael Oher and Mike Remmers in Super Bowl 50, the Panthers neglected to add depth in the offseason. When Oher went down with a concussion that ultimately ended his season in late September, Remmers was exposed as a deficient stand-in on Cam Newton’s
Youth Nike Green Bay Packers Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Cheap blindside. The woes didn’t end there, as Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil landed on injured reserve and guard Trai Turner was forced to play out of position at right tackle.

Assuming Kalil returns to full health, the interior is in fine shape. The tackles, on the other hand, represent a problem area. Oher intends to continue his career next season, but the Panthers certainly need a fallback plan. With Remmers due to reach free agency, it will be interesting to see if Carolina targets a stud left
Men’s Nike Detroit Lions Customized Elite Team Color Light Blue NFL Football Jersey tackle early in the draft, pushing Oher to the right side.

2. Rejuvenate the rushing attack: The Panthers entered the 2016 season with a streak of 32 consecutive games over 100 rushing yards — the longest such stretch since 1976. Since that streak came to an end in early October, they have been held under the century mark five more times. Lead back Jonathan Stewart turned back the clock for a season-high 132 yards in Week 15, but has otherwise averaged a problematic 3.6 yards per carry. Due nearly $6 million in 2017, Stewart will be a 30-year-old back with too much mileage under his belt, diminishing speed and a lengthy injury history.

Whether or not Stewart is retained, general manager Dave Gettleman has to
Customized Detroit Lions Jersey place a priority on finding his successor. Scat back Fozzy Whittaker is limited to change-of-pace duty and kickoff returns, while 2015 fifth-round pick Cameron Artis-Payne has yet to crack the rotation. It’s past time to add a dynamic playmaking element to this backfield.

3. Kickstart Cam Newton 2.0: While Sean McDermott’s defense steadily improved throughout the season, Newton’s offense clearly regressed. His 45.3 completion rate since Week 11 is the third-lowest by any quarterback in a six-game span since at least 1991, per NFL Research. Those struggles can be partially attributed to the injury-ravaged offensive line and unreliable wide receivers — particularly Kelvin Benjamin’s inability to separate from coverage. Still, Newton shoulders blame for poor mechanics and the resultant scattershot ball placement.

Coach Ron Rivera envisions the offense evolving around Newton as he becomes a “different style of player.” The transformation will be toward a more disciplined pocket passer and away from a heavy dose of designed QB runs. Steelers franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was tasked with a similar conversion four years ago, as the organization asked him to become “more of a cerebral player and not just a physical wonder.” Similarly, the Panthers will focus more on quick passes, sprint-outs and rollouts to take advantage of Newton’s athleticism and strong arm while keeping him out of harm’s way and allowing him to build confidence with easier completions.

“We want him to last 10 more years,” Rivera explained this week. “We have to Women’s Nike Detroit Lions Personalized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt find ways to change. We have to find ways to protect him and for him to protect himself. Part of his evolution is learning how to survive.”
