Shooting someone else’s guns and ammunition is always a good thing and nothing beats SHOT show media day at the range. This annual event gives manufacturers a way to demonstrate their wares as participants are asked to step up and shoot. Two of the guns I shot at media day are new Rugers, their Precision Rifle in 6mm Creedmoor and the American Rifle in 450 Bushmaster. Thousands of rounds were put through these rifles – I have no idea how many – then both were delivered to me for testing. I imagine these rifles have fired more rounds than the average person puts through a rifle in many years, or a lifetime, so it ought to be interesting to see how they shoot.
