The new SA-28 Field Shotgun provides a low-recoiling, lighter-weight option without sacrificing performance.

Blaser’s new Intuition Series features stocks specifically designed for the lady hunter. Now available on Blaser’s new F16 shotgun and the well-established R8 rifle, the Monte Carlo stock enables the shooter to mount her gun effortlessly.

When BraeVal considered adding Women’s designs for the BraeValian sisterhood, we listened when they said: “Do not make it girlie . . . keep the same unique details and fabrics that make BraeVal different, and do not give up function or durability.” So what happened? The line grew from shirts to vests and jackets. Shown here is the Artemis Vest, available in Buffalo Nubuck, Moleskin, and New Tweed.
