RIFLES ENJOY A UNIQUELY AMERICAN REPUTATION
We won our freedom from Britain by simply being the best with our rifles. While the technology has changed a bit, Americans still love the idea of being the best marksmen around.
Whether defending your life, liberty, or property, just doing some hunting, competing, or a relaxing day of shooting, a good rifle is the perfect mix of nostalgia and technological advancement.
And, that is just cool.
Choose from any of our beginning rifles to world class competition models. We know that whatever use you will put your rifle to, it is going to be yours and we want you to not only like it, but love it.
As with any firearm, practice and familiarity with your rifle is integral to the performance you can get from even the highest performing models. That starts with purchasing the best rifle to fit your needs and getting good training.

THE MARINE CORPS RIFLEMAN'S CREED
This is my rifle.
There are many like it, but this one is mine.
It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
Without me my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true.
I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will.
My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.
My rifle is human, even as I am human, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights, and its barrel.
I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other.
Before God I swear this creed. My rifle and I are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy.
