We may earn revenue from the products available on this page and participate in affiliate programs. Learn More › The idea behind the Oracle Arms 2311 pistol is one that caught my attention immediately — a pistol that incorporates 2011-style features, but uses Sig P320-pattern magazines and is designed to be ambidextrous and modular. We get a 1911-style trigger that’s better than almost anything on a striker-fired gun, a customizable grip module that includes built-in support-thumb rests, and it takes common, relatively affordable Sig magazines.  This is a pistol that isn’t trying to be th ..read more

Biologists with the Missouri Department of Conservation caught the fish during a survey on the Mississippi, which forms the state line between Missouri and Illinois. The WDNR says the sturgeon’s downriver journey is one of the farthest ever recorded for that population ..read more

Learn More › If one set out to design the perfect traditional hunting rifle it would look a lot like the Sako 90 Adventure. At first glance you might wonder whether such praise is warranted. The traditional American stock isn’t nearly as avant-garde as many of the competition-inspired lightweight stocks that have gained traction in recent years. And the heart of the rifle — Sako’s three-lug bolt action — has been a fixture in the Finnish gunmaker’s line for decades. A close examination will quic ..read more

A South Carolina fossil hunter is lucky to be alive and with both arms intact after a near-death encounter with an alligator last week. William Georgitis, who lives near Charleston, was scuba diving in the Cooper River on April 15 when he was brutally attacked, death-rolled, and pinned to the bottom of the river by the large gator. The attack lasted for around 15 minutes, according to one of Georgitis’ friends.
