Petzal’s SHOT Picks: 5 Best New Rifles of 2014

However, since I walk to the right of the Delta post and am therefore a man of the people, I will include some guns that are affordable by the masses.

Before we get to my favorite new rifles of the year, a travel note. Those of you who fly Delta may have noticed that when you board, they put a post in the middle of the walkway that says “Sky Miles Medallion,” which refers to people who fly Delta a lot. First class, business class, and frequent fliers walk to the left of the post. When they’ve all boarded, the rest of the herd files to the right of the post. I flew with the peasants, and when they told us to board to the right, I and the young man next to me burst out laughing. If my old mom had asked me what my life’s ambition was, I would have said “Ma, I want to walk to the left of the Delta post some day.” Perhaps it’s just as well she is not here to see that I failed. But that’s not important now.

This year at SHOT it was hard to walk 10 feet without encountering a tactical rifle, or a rifle that was designed for long range, or a rifle that cost $3,000. Apparently there are a lot of people out there who are not shy about spending three large on a good gun, and boy, are there some good ones. However, since I walk to the right of the Delta post and am therefore a man of the people, I will include some guns that are affordable by the masses. So here we go.
