    For many of us, the very first firearm that was "ours" was a break-action single-shot shotgun in either .410 or 20 gauge. It was the perfect combination of simplicity, light weight and effectiveness for a young new hunter and I'm sure many of you still have that first single-shot tucked away somewhere. Sadly, when the Freedom Group bought up Marlin Firearms back in the late 2000's they decided to discontinue the H&R break-action single-shot ...

    The fine folks at Savage Arms have been trying to regain a foothold in the American shotgun market for a little over a decade now. In 2004 Savage brought forth its first non-bolt action shotgun in over 15 years - the Russian made (Baikal) Stevens Model 411 Upland Sporter side-by-side 12-gauge shotgun. It was a nice looking, well made scatter gun with an MSRP of just $395, but it disappeared from the catalog after just one year.

    I have to start off this review with a confession of sorts. When I first learned of the new Model 42 from Savage Arms that was announced at the 2013 SHOT Show I was elated, but then when I saw the first pictures of it I'm pretty sure I used every foul word in the English language to communicate my disdain for it. When I finally saw one in person a few months later at the local gun shop and I was even further disgusted by what I perceived ...

    The Model 212 Camo as delivered from Savage.

    Aside from introducing a number of new models to their catalog each year, the engineers at Savage Arms have also kept busy making small changes and improvements to many of their existing models.

    Ever since I was first introduced to Savage firearms back in 2001, I had always wondered why they didn't offer their Model 210F Slug Gun in a 20-gauge version. It just made sense to me as not all guys like the brutish kick of a 12-gauge slug gun, and most female and youth hunters would be far more comfortable with the smaller gauge. ...

    Turkey hunting has become quite popular throughout most of the United States and Canada. Successful conservation and management by the federal, state, provincial, and local wildlife agencies as well as hunters has provided more turkeys than ever before. With all the interest shown towards the sport, it's no wonder that most firearms companies have at least one offering in their line up for turkey hunters. ...
