We’re not experts, but this was such a big deal we wanted to make sure to keep it at the forefront of our platform.

  • An Incomplete Guide to Youth Shotguns

    Can I tell you how many youth shotgun guides I see on the regular? A lot. It’s like outdoors industry search engine optimization 101 – “write an article about youth shotguns” . . . Most of them are good.  Recently, the good folks at Project Upland released this one, and I think it’s the be all, end all for youth shotgun articles – it’s written by a former gun shop employee, it takes into account almost all the things you want to take into account, and it has the most comprehensive chart I’ve ever seen of youth shotguns.  I used to have a chart, but now I’m embarrassed to show…
