Regardless, know that you’ll see this Smith & Wesson handgun in Wade’s more and more this coming deer season!

What to Look For When Choosing a Hunting Rifle

Choosing a hunting rifle can be as simple as it was passed down to you from your grandfather, your father, or family member, or a friend. They can be as extensive as a guy that has a collection of 412 guns and he wants to add number 413. Or it could be that you have saved every dime that you possibly have to get your very own first hunting rifle. Because of that, there are a lot of different spins, twists, and important things to look at when it comes to choosing a hunting rifle.

There’s always somebody talking about the best hunting caliber, the best hunting rifle, the best value out there, and each one of those people (just like this conversation we’re having right now) they’ve got an important piece of information that you can take away from them, but none of them are gospel. None of them are law. What you have to determine as the future owner of this firearm is what you want to get out of it.

There’s a lot of different models of guns on the market today. A guy can easily go spend $2,000-$3,000 on a firearm, or he can go spend $300 on a firearm. It just kind of depends on your budget, your long-term goals, and maybe even where you’re at in life at that point to be able to spend that kind of money. Those days of needing to feel like you’ve got to spend $1,000-$1,500 on a gun have been surpassed a lot of times by the quality of manufacturing that you can find in a firearm and what you’ve been able to do straight off the rack with it.

When you go up to the next level of guns, you know, from your $200-$350 models. What you’re looking at a lot of times is smoother actions when you’re working the bolt, that is the biggest thing you noticed on what that next jump up in firearms. And in those situations of long-range hunting where you may have to fire a couple of rounds in there, that’s a huge benefit. Hunters also desire a firearm that is going to last a long time and can take extreme punishment in really tough conditions out in the wilderness. They demand a little bit more out of the construction of materials that the firearm is made out of.

Choosing Hunting Rifles

Choosing a hunting rifle can be as simple as being passed down to you from your grandfather, your father, family member, or a friend or it can be as extensive as a guy has a collection of 412 guns and he wants to add number 413. Or it could be that you have saved every dime that you possibly have to get your very own first hunting rifle. Because of that, there are a lot of different spins, twists, and important things to look at when it comes to choosing a hunting rifle.

We also open up the conversation about hunting big game with modern sporting rifles. Modern sporting rifles have a unique stigma on them. When you look at a modern sporting rifle in the hands of a hunter, it’s a really finite tool. It is designed to be able to perform in a lot of different situations.

One such rifle is the Smith & Wesson M&P10® Modern Sporting Rifle is packed full of features that one can only find from the Smith & Wesson Performance Center. This modern sporting rifle is a hunter’s long-range dream firearm setup that is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. That type of caliber has caused some debates around the deer camp and shooters alike. We get into the meat of it sharing where we think it excels and where it may not be the best choice.

We’ll even join Wade as he ventures out on a rifle hunt to showcase not only what the 6.5 Creedmoor can do when hunting for whitetail deer but also talk more about how the Trijicon Huron Riflescope is the ideal riflescope for hunters.

Expand Your Horizons with Handgun Hunting

Handgun hunting is a totally different way of hunting it. As far as what you do as the hunter you still have to hunt the same way you would with a bow, crossbow, rifle, or whatever it may be. You’re still trying to get as close as you possibly can and make his most ethical shots that you can.

The Ways You Can Upgrade Your Handgun

When it comes to customizing any type of firearm there’s always going to be options. The factory set ups a lot of times are more than fine for a lot of situations. But if you want to maximize the performance, you can add some things to your firearm. Smith & Wesson for instance has the Performance Center where you can have your triggers be a little crisper, or have a little less poundage for the pull, and so many other options. Smith and Wesson’s are going to be hard to beat the factory shields and Model 629 classics that are out there. But one thing we definitely like to do with about every firearm we get, is upgrade our sights to HIVIZ sights and it’s very easy to do for the majority of the models!
