    A Way Forward
    column by: Steve Garbe

    It’s really not surprising to anyone, who even half-heartedly watches the news that the NRA is having some serious problems, many of which appear to be self-inflicted. I’m not going to launch into a discussion about that situation because at this juncture it is not appropriate, and would also be negative “piling on” that solves nothing. The controversy will be resolved one way or the other, and we as gun owners first, and NRA members second, will assess what kind of organization comes out of the ashes. Whether or not we chose to continue our support will most likely be a personal decision, hopefully based on actual performance and not promises. ‘Nuff said. ...Read More >

    column by: Steve Garbe

    This issue’s cover features a statute of frontiersman and buffalo hunter extraordinaire, Jim White. The statute of White is currently on display at Old Trail Town, in Cody, Wyoming, where Jim White’s remains were eventually interred.

    For many years we have noticed the excellent quality firearms marketed by Cimarron Firearms Company. Mike Harvey, Cimarron’s president, has been in business with his company since 1984. Focused on providing finely finished reproduction firearms of the Old West, Mike has brought his love of antique rifles, pistols and shotguns to the marketplace. Cimarron firearms show closer attention to original specifications and detail along with excellent fit and polish. Many of the guns that Cimarron markets are copies of firearms that would simply be beyond the reach of average enthusiasts, and offer a viable alternative to those of us who actually want to use our guns. Made from modern steels, the Cimarron line of firearms also alleviates the safety concerns that come with shooting many old originals. ...Read More >
