“What do women want?” they ask, and NRA Women is here to answer. To all of our men, partners or significant others: The outdoor women in your life don’t need a pink teddy bear or over-priced flowers that’ll wilt in a week. What your mom, sister, wife or girlfriend really wants are …these. What don’t women want? Well, we talked to three more women and asked them about their biggest hunt camp blunders, in the hopes that we can all learn something without having to repeat their mistakes. Go ahead and laugh … just don’t try this at home.

Can’t get enough funny outdoor blunders? Our friends at NRA Family have you covered with “Death in the Deep Mud.”

“Don’t color outside the lines!” Your grade-school teacher said it, and so does your local gun range. Problem is, both competitors and self-defenders often have to shoot on the move. Columnist Becky Yackley teaches you how … and how to practice.

NRA-ILA has the full story here.

Whether or not you’ve ever been shooting, you’ve decided it’s time to buy your very first rifle. Congratulations! You probably have lots of questions, and there are a few things you need to consider in order to make the best possible choice. Five things, in fact.

A common practice that had fallen by the wayside in recent years was having an “understudy” for one’s carry gun;basically, a duplicate—or as near a duplicate as one could manage—but chambered in .22 LR. Shooting Illustrated columnist Tamara Keel explains why that practice is due for a revival.
