Tactical Life June/July Issue: The Essentials

(Nashville, Tenn.)

To say we’re in the midst of a gun-buying frenzy would be the understatement of the decade. With the global COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, it’s quite evident that the gun-buying public is running on overdrive, as everyone is looking to add to their arsenals for personal and home defense.

In putting together this special “Gun Annual” issue of Tactical Life, we not only focused on the current climate and its effect on our industry, but we also zeroed in on the information that our readers would need the most during this pandemic to help them make sound investments in the coming days and months. Information like the latest in ammunition to feed your favorite rifles, a review of the POF-USA 6.5 Creedmoor, testing Hornady’s latest long-distance rounds, a closer look at the new Springfield Armory Elite Tactical OSP, and more than 80 pages of in-depth specifications for handguns, rifles, shotguns, and more.

With so much misinformation being passed along these days, we set out to create a truly reliable source of information for our valued readers. We want you to enjoy the issue, and when you’re done, please pass it along to a loved one, friend or someone new to the world of responsible firearms ownership.

As per usual, Tactical Life delivers more quality editorial content than any other gun-centric magazine today. Think we’re wrong?
