We Are an Essential Business

Dear H&H Shooting Sports Customers,

Our top priority during the recent national crisis has been the safety and welfare of our customers and staff. To follow CDC guidelines regarding the COVID-19 virus we have made many changes to our operation including limiting our hours, increasing our cleaning and sanitizing procedures and limiting the amount of people in our store at one time.

In response to the latest ‘Safer At Home’ order issued by Governor Stitt on Tuesday, March 24th we will be taking additional action to limit the non-essential areas of our business. We have decided to cancel all upcoming training and group classes. At no point will we allow gatherings of 10 or more people. Additionally our archery shooting ranges will be closed to the public, with the firearms range open with limited availability and social distancing measures in place.

Our firearms and ammunition sales will remain open, with a maximum of 10 people allowed in to make purchases at one time. We have made this decision as we believe that access to firearms and ammunition falls within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) guidelines as being essential and critical to the public safety.

We will adjust our operating hours to Monday – Saturday 11am – 7pm. During our reduced operating hours there will be no lines, people will check in at the door, leave a phone number and then wait in their car until called to enter the store. They will be limited to making their purchases and filling out their paperwork before being asked to wait in their cars again while the background check is processed. We will then call the customer with the results. Social distancing measures will be enforced at all times.

We believe in the second amendment and that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. We plan to continue fulfilling our responsibility to our community and to the people that want to protect themselves.

Please direct any inquiries to us via email at ContactUs@HHShootingSports.com and we will respond as promptly as we can, in the order in which they are received.

We appreciate your continued support and patronage. We will be here to support and help protect our fellow Oklahomans.

Guns, like any machine will eventually break down.  It’s no wonder really, they hold small explosions in them.  So for guns that are big and small they will need some one to fix them at some point.  SO who would you take them to?  A gun smith of course.  These experts go to schools on the ways and means of gun repair.  Unless you know what you’re doing it would be best for you to take your gun to some one who does know.  With that in mind here’s what you need to know when visiting a gun smith

Make sure your gun(s) are unloaded.

This may seem like a no brainier for some, but for others it might be new information to them.  Having you gun unloaded, magazine out/action unlocked) lets the gunsmith know that what ever is coming their way is not dangerous.  This starts you off on the right foot with them so you can get straight to business.

Have all the parts with you.

Most of the time a gun smith needs all the parts of the gun.  At the end of their project they will need to test every thing to make sure it works properly.  Giving them only the part that needs work can slow down progress or might make it impossible for them to continue their work.  So have the gun fully assembled or in a box or bag.  And if a missing part is the problem then just let them know real quick.

Accurately describe the problem.

Some guns experience problems more often than other ones.  And some times the problems are common between users.  The more specific you get, the faster thy can think of a solution.  After it’s handed off they can get back to work.

Expect to wait.

Fixes take time.  Some times a part needs to be ordered or manufactured.  If you want quality you just have to wait for every thing to come together while it’s worked on.  Just let them work and try not to bother them.  Their work require them to work at projects that can’t be put down easily.  Also you’re not the only gun they are working on.  Their shop is full of projects and if you’re last on the list just ask real quick before you hand the gun over to them how long it might be.

Expect to pay.

Quality takes money too.  If you need something very sensitive worked on then you simply have to fork over some cash.   An quality gun smith will want to be fairly compensated for their hard work.  Some projects need a lot of time put into them rush as re-blueing.  Some guns are also no longer in production and their parts are no longer being made.  That scarcity makes them expensive.  Bad quality smiths don’t stay in business and good ones charge a fair price.

So in short this list is an overview of what to expect while at the smith’s shop.  They want to work on guns and you want your gun fixed so make sure you do your best to help them out.  And you need to keep in mind that some guns are lost causes.  Eventually some guns will be beyond repair and you’ll just have to make it a wall hanger after that.  Some part might just be too hard to either make by hand or too expensive to order and you gotta just roll with it unfortunately.  So how what kind of results have you gotten with your local gunsmiths?  Sound off in the comments below and share your experience.

The lost art of the side by side

For what seemed like a century the side by side double barrel shotgun ruled the roost.  It was cheap, simple to use, and its application nearly instantly understandable to anyone who laid eyes on it.  Two back to back shots of 12 gauge.  But today is seems to have fallen out of favor.  What did the pour thing in?  I’d say this topic is worth investigating.

The world of double barrels certainly has changed in the last century and a half.  Once upon a time in the early 1930’s, double barreled shotguns could be had for very little.  With some gun catalogs pricing them at $12 or less.  With an inflation adjustment that would come out to about $186.  Not a bad price at all for a highly versatile, easy to use firearm.  Now a days finding a quality gun at that price would be nearly impossible.  Now much of what you’d find at the double barrel section at a gun store would be high-end trap shooting over/under shotguns.

These gun from $500 all the way up to $2000 with a median price of about $1200.   These shotguns are quite a bit more mechanically complex and fragile than the side by sides of today and  yesteryear.  While fantastic choices for skeet and bird hunting, they’re generally poorly suited for combat or home defense with their long barrels and hefty price tag.  Only a few companies come to mind with a “combat over/under” in their line up.  The Stoeger Condor Outback is the only one i can think of.

As much handy and simple to use they are quite obsolete.  Since 1987, the year Winchester debuted the Model 1897, double barreled shotguns started to lose market share to their repeating counterparts.  While two shots of 12 gauge may seem powerful, it pales in comparison to 5 repeating shots of 12 gauge.

Pump-guns like the Remington 870 don’t break the bank and have been around since 1950.  That means gunsmiths and accessory manufacturers know the ins and outs of these quite well.   They stay strong and make for great guns to be passed down from one generation to the next.  Not to mention that their pump action makes them well suited for all kinds of ammo from low power bird shot to 3 inch magnum slugs.

Finally we have to mention one of the bigger side by side killers.  The automatic shotgun.  The first successful semi-auto shotgun to come out to the market was the browning Auto 5.

Once it hit the scene it was a instant hit with sport shooters and outlaws alike.  The auto 5 offered something that nothing else had before 5 shots as fast as you could pull the trigger.  Not to mention its reliability.  With its tagline of “come hell or high water” its easy to understand its popularity.  Nothing at the time offered as much as the Auto-5 could, reliability and great endurance.  The borrowed time the side by side was going off of finally ran out in the late 60’s.

It isn’t completely over for them tho.  Groups such as cowboy action shooting keep the spirit alive with their meet ups where people compete to see who’s the fastest and the most accurate.  Side by sides also keep them selves alive with pop culture.  They’re usually shown as close range annihilators in wild west shows, or video games.  It’s to let the audience know that no one who gets hit with one of these is walking out.  Not to mention they still are popular in places where firearm ownership is unfortunately highly restricted.

So if you’re thinking about getting a new shotgun maybe consider purchasing a side by side.  Whether they’re used or brand new, you’ll get years and years or enjoyment out of the side by side.  A true American classic!

Taking better pictures of your guns

Every one wants to show off what they’ve got!  But do you have what it takes?  If you don’t that’s perfectly fine as I will teach you the basics of getting a great photo!  Get your guns and camera ready because you’ll want to take pictures as soon as you are done reading!

Step 1:  Take a lot of pictures.

This step doesn’t have any actual composition tips, but is instead a standard photography tip.  By taking a lot of pics you get yourself something very important.  Options.  By giving yourself options you get more of a chance that you take a photo that you absolutely love.  So take lots of pictures.  Take them from every angle, every height, and move the gun around too.  Take pictures of it standing up, on its side and maybe even down the sights.  Even consider a safe picture of the bore.  Heck, even take the gun apart and snap some pics of the inside.  Either way you do it just make sure that you have every base covered with the gun you want to take.  This will also give you later options down the road because you never know when you might need a super specific picture of a sear or something.

Step 2:  You need better light.

What ever your current light set up is, it isn’t good enough.  Many new-comers to the world of photography just don’t know something very critical.  Their cameras don’t take in a lot of light.  You’re ceiling lights don’t produce enough light either.  So your best solution is to get extra lights.

Getting something as simple as a flashlight to shine extra light on your guns will get you a better lit picture.  Try using the light from the back of the gun.  This will make it pop off its background.  There are even some lights that can be gotten for below $25.  Also make sure that your camera can automatically adjust to the lights or you manually adjust your camera.  With better lights every one will be able to see the fine details on a gun for better or for worse.

See how easy it is to see all of the details?

Step 3:  Clear a space.

When ever or where ever you take your photos make sure to have some sort of clear space.  No viewer wants to see a whole bunch of junk in your background. They came to see the gun and that’s what should be in focus.

This place isn’t exactly what people want to see when you snap a pic.

So clear out yourself a small studio.  The best and cheapest option it to create a light box with large white poster board sheets.  This way you’ll have a nice clean background that will contrast with the darker colors that are usually found on guns.  And with the small studio you now have it’ll be easy to mount lights so your guns can be illuminated.

Step 4: Know what you’re taking a picture of.

No matter what you’re taking a picture of be sure you know what it is.  Because when ever you post the photos of your gun people will absolutely ask questions about it.  By being able to answer simple questions like, “What’s the make and model of it?” or “How does it shoot?”  Being able to answer simple questions will make your posts very engaging and will even make people want come back when you post something new.

Step 5: Experiment

Only you can pick out which kind of photos you like so make sure to try out a whole bunch photographic tricks and settings.  Consider taking your photo’s outside surrounded by nature.  You can even mess with the mount of light that’s on your subject or what color the light is.  Are you tired of a white background?  Consider taking a photo of a gun surrounded by it’s accessories like magazines and ammo.  And maybe you don’t need a clutter free environment.  Taking a picture on a work bench or surrounded by uniforms and medals gives a cool narrative to your guns that is hard to replicate.  For the most part you get to control what the end viewer sees so take a lot of photos in a lot of places.  You can even touch them up a bit with photo editing software.

Conclusion.

This tips should give you a head start on your journey of photography.  Soon you’ll be taking master class photos with ease!  Just make sure when you’re taking photos or any gun make sure it’s checked for safety and that you also follow the gun safety rules.  Other than that you’re ready to go.  Have you already been taking pictures of guns for a while now?  Sound off in the comments with the pictures you’re most proud of!  Thanks for reading everybody!
