Although the patrol rifle has been gaining significant ground in law enforcement circles in recent years, the tried-and-true pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is still an important police weapon.
In early 2010 Weatherby announced a new addition to its rifle line, the SUB-MOA TR (Tactical Rifle) chambered in .308.
Weatherby’s online community for hunters and shooters recently passed the 25,000-member milestone.
I just spent an afternoon with a group from Pheasants Forever, participating in their annual shotgun test. The PF folks had gathered about 20 new guns and invited 25 or so members to shoot them. We tried guns ranging from Remington’s $400 887 pump to Caesar Guerini’s $6000+ Apex O/U. One of the most widely praised guns of the test was also one of the cheapest: Weatherby’s SA-08 semiauto.
