Face facts – life, as we know it, has changed and will never be the same. Within four months, day-to-day reality has shifted for the entire globe.

Many companies have done the AR-15, and some have done it well, but the Colt is still the one that all others are judged by. In fact, in my humble opinion, the Colt kicks most competitors in the teeth! [Read more…] about Colt AR-15: Trail-Dirty Deeds and Off-Road Shooting
