The SIG SAUER P238′s relatively gentle recoil makes it an extremely accurate little jewel and, well, fun. A P238 owner’s unlikely to treat his or her weapon like your average mouse gun (stick it in a secret cage and only pull it out when your life depends on it). The P238 is a range toy in the best sense of that term: a gun you’ll play with to the point where shooting it well will become second nature. And that means the gun may do you some good should you ever need to use it in a self-defense situation. - TTAG’s review of the P238

For the money, this might be one of the best handguns on the market. Sig Sauer quality with a sticker price below Glock’s “perfection.” The only sticking point is the trigger, which could stand some improvement and might be a little hard for newbies (what with the DA/SA action). -TTAG
Construction on the new building progressed after the rains finally slowed down. We hope to have it ready for viewing by the Pioneer Festival October 4. The Log Cabin is now protected from the elements and those 161 year-old logs will last another 160 years!
The Iowa DNR has released the official list of 2014-2015 hunting seasons and there are a few notable changes. The January Antlerless rifle season has been eliminated, crossbows are available to use during late muzzle-loader season, and some experimental changes with waterfowl seasons are being tested.

Stop by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office in Corydon and get your old paper permit upgraded!
Have you blown up any washers, dryers, refrigerators, or other large appliances yet this summer? You had better get started! These exploding targets contain two different materials that you simply mix up in the provided container and then shoot with a .223 or larger rifle. The targets are extremely safe, even after being mixed. Fun to shoot by themselves, but even better if placed inside something! Combine multiple containers for an even larger boom! Get them at Coates Guns!
For the first time in nearly 10 months, the shelves are fully restocked with .380 ammunition. This has been one of the truly hard to get calibers for well over a year – along with .22LR, .22Mag, .17HMR, .243Win. and a few other odd-balls. I was very lucky to get this shipment and when it is gone, I probably wont get any more for several more weeks/months. That is why I will be setting a 2-box limit on .380 ammo, at least for now. The price is $26.95 for a 50-round box of Hyperclean 100gr. TMJ’s. Get it NOW at Coates Guns!
