April 2016 - Australian Shooter

We reflect on how far the firearms community has come since the formation of the SSAA in 1948 and look towards the future of our chosen recreations. SSAA National also launches its new department, SSAA Legislative Action (SSAA-LA), and identifies incorrect handgun seizure claims by Customs. In new product news, Con Kapralos examines the APRS Light Hunter rifle, Byron Pace reviews Bergara’s B14 Sporter rifle and Paul Miller tests Blaser’s F3 Super Sport Luxus shotgun. We also assess Lyman’s Borecam Digital Borescope, Leica’s Geovid HD-B binoculars and Burris Fullfield E1 scopes. Thomas Tabor tours the Savage Arms factory in Massachusetts, and Winchester Australia’s Range Day goes off with a bang in Victoria. Ben Smith reminisces about being the new kid on the water hunting ducks, and Assistant Editor Dave Rose takes a look at some wildlife management activities by SSAA Farmer Assist volunteers in WA and Queensland.
