The Gold model was introduced to the Browning catalogue in 1995 and was

Remington V3

Remington V3

While I was at the British Shooting Show in February, I took the opportunity to get around and see what was coming out. I was taken with the Remington V3 and asked if I could take a good look at it. I’ve been a Remington fan since buying my first…

Bettinsoli X-Trail Camo Max 5

Bettinsoli X-Trail Camo Max-5

There was a time when
