Today, Kimber rifles are favored by many of the world's most accomplished hunters and shooters, and limited production keeps people standing in line to buy them.

The efficiency of a tarp with the stand-up room of a Tipi, this hybrid is a great combo of weight savings & comfort. At 7+ feet tall, you get plenty of headroom, and can easily get dressed, stretch or pull in a couple of camp chairs. All at just 4 1/2 pounds that shrinks down into a tiny, man-carryable package.

SHOOTING THE LIPPARD .45 AT 1000 YARDS!!!

By Harry Claflin

Earlier this year, an old running mate of mine, Robert Brown, publisher of Soldier of Fortune magazine, gave me a call and asked if I would like to come to NRA Whittington in Baton, New Mexico, for a week of shooting guns and fine fellowship. What a deal! Of course, I jumped at the opportunity. It had been several years since I had shared a beer with Robert and would not miss the chance. Over breakfast I asked my wife if she minded if I spent a week in New Mexico shooting guns and good fellowship with Uncle Bob. Mary looked over her cup and gave me that look. You did say New Mexico, did you not?

After 42 years of marriage, 25 of that overseas and Robert dragging me off to really neat places in the world, needless to say she was a little suspicious. The day came to leave and she watched me pack my kit and way too many guns, camo uniforms and field gear. Like a good Marine’s wife, she just smiled, gave me a kiss and told me she would be here when I got back.

By SOF

Republican members of the Senate Intelligence Committee issued a rebuttal to the roughly 500-page “study” conducted by the Democratic majority on the committee. The Republicans, who pulled out of the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation in the fall of 2009, took issue with many of the assertions in Feinstein’s hit job.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Republican report, signed by Senators Saxby Chambliss (R-GA - pictured right), Richard Burr (R-NC), James Risch (R-ID), Dan Coats (R-IN), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Tom Coburn (R-OK), states “We have no doubt the CIA’s detention program saved lives and played a vital role in weakening al-Qa’ida while the Program was in operation.”

FEINSTEIN RELEASES CIA REPORT

480-Page Hit Job on CIA Released
By SOF

Senator Dianne Feinstein, author of the 1994 semi-auto ban, released a 480-page summary of a 6,000-page “study” on interrogation techniques used in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, despite opposition from the CIA, State Department. Republicans pulled out of the investigation in 2009, and the report was done solely by Democratic staffers on the committee.

According to media reports, Feinstein’s report accuses the CIA of misleading Congress about the use of those techniques and by overstating the information obtained. The report, coming after years of partisan disputes, including allegations of computer hacking on the part of both the CIA and Democratic staffers on the intelligence committee, claims that at least 119 people were held in the CIA’s secret detention report.

FROM SPRINGFIELD ARMORY: The New Range Officer Compact .45!

By Gary Paul Johnston

Over 30 years ago, I evaluated the then new .45 ACP Colt Officer’s ACP pistol, a chopped down version of the Commander patterned after the small custom pistols perfected by DEVEL, of Ohio, which used a bushingless barrel built for DEVEL by BAR-STO Precision.

Following my report on the pistol, I had what I thought was an even better idea; I took a Commander slide and put it on the Officer’s ACP pistol. This provided a shorter grip for concealment and 4-inch barrel for more sight radius and muzzle velocity. I then wrote an article about that pistol. I’m not claiming to be the only one who came up with that idea, as others came to the same conclusion – it seemed a “no-brainer.”
