Ivory Beads

It's what you'd expect in LA: glitz, glitter, glam... fine guns. Just cross-town from Beverly Hills, Jim Thynne (above left) and Jerry Kitto set up shop five years ago in the suburb of Covina. Since then they've risen like stars in the fine-gun firmament. A-listers with fine performances

From the Editor

Hard to believe, but in July it will be three years since we lost Contributing Editor Tim Leary in that tragic fall. (If you're too new to the magazine to remember Tim, he was our Field Gear Editor and the coordinator of our Readers & Writers Wingshoots.) Still, after all this time, hardly a day goes

Two years ago at the Remington Society of America's Annual Meeting and Seminar, Gordon Fosburg, an expert on Remington advertising, promotional

Time Travel with Philipp Ollendorff

Help a Grouse, Win a Parker

The Ruffed Grouse Society has organized a yearlong fundraising raffle to appeal to enthusiasts passionate about upland gamebirds and fine double guns: The chance to win one of the new $49,000 (Remington) Parker Guns for a $100 ticket.

GaugeMates Tested: The Numbers

Tom Roster's March/April Shot Talk column ("Inside Sub-Gauge Inserts") gave us a good feel for the capabilities of each type of insert and its price/benefit tradeoff. However, the GaugeMate people, in California, were in the midst of their own independent testing when Tom's article was written,

Bird Dogs Forever on DVD and on the Web

At a time when even wingshooting television shows tend to favor speed-metal soundtracks, the fast-cut editing style of rock music videos, and a "greatest hits" onslaught that packs a hundred tumbling birds or more into each half-hour, it's no surprise that Dr. Christian Hageseth's Bird Dogs

How Efficient Is Your Shotgun?

Many Shooting Sportsman readers are familiar with Don Amos's and Tom Hamernik's work on Moment of Inertia (MOI) and shotgun handling (see "Measuring MOI," Sept/Oct '01). In the great American tradition of endless tinkering, their concept recently was subjected to a sophisticated statistical
