Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle On Gun Talk Television
MANDEVILLE, LA –-(Ammoland.com)- A rifle designed for short range, long range, police work, self-defense, and big game hunting — that's the scout rifle, created by the legendary gunner's guru, Col. Jeff Cooper.
When Ruger introduced its new version of this concept, the crew from Gun Talk Television gave it a thorough workout, and they show off what they learned on this week's episode.
A collaborative effort between Ruger and Gunsite (the shooting school founded by Jeff Cooper), the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle is billed as the ideal fighting carbine. Cooper called for a relatively lightweight, hard hitting, do-all rifle that in the hands of an accomplished shooter was able to place accurate, sustained fire out to long ranges, yet was quick-handling and light enough for all-day carry.
Co-hosts Tom and Ryan Gresham ventured to Gunsite Academy, in Paulden, Arizona, to talk with the folks who developed the rifle, and to find out just what it would do. They were impressed.
“I didn't know what to expect,” said Ryan Gresham, “but this is a complete package, from the cartridge to the little details which make the Scout rifle a serious option as an all-round gun.”
