We hope you’ve already filled a bow tag this season and tasted backstraps again. If not, you’ve still got time to get in on the action. Turn to page 11 to take a look at some of the latest hunting firearms for 2018. We inspected chambers, pulled triggers and checked accuracy on a bunch of fine options. It might be time for you to up your game and spring for a new deer or coyote gun. Or you might just want to see what’s out there. Either way, we’re sure you’ll be triggered to get out in the woods, field or treestand.…

BOLT-ACTION › BROWNING X-BOLT HUNTER .30-06 Springfield, $899 WHAT WE LIKED: It improves upon a classic A-Bolt design, features a free-floated barrel, extremely crisp trigger and a wide variety of cartridges for whatever game you’re pursuing. WHAT WE’D CHANGE: The proprietary bases and scope rings can be tricky to find.

IN 1967, Thompson/Center offered the first Contender: a single-shot, hammerfired pistol that could be easily converted to a rifle, a shotgun or a muzzleloader.

In particular, competitive silhouette pistol shooters favored the T/C’s lengthy barrel and robust grip as well as the fact that the Contender could be modified to fire a variety of cartridges. Many of those silhouette shooters were also hunters, and the Contender became one of the top options for handgun hunting. In 2013 Thompson/Center dropped the Contender from their line, but within two years the company brought back a new, sleek, modernized version of the pistol. The modern T/C G2 Contender looks very much…
