From the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission – Special Hunting and Fishing Licensing Privileges for Military Personnel
Raleigh, North Carolina — Military personnel hunting and fishing in North Carolina can enjoy special licensing privileges as long as they meet criteria set by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.
Military personnel who are residents of North Carolina serving full-time active military duty outside of the state in the Armed Forces or a reserve component of the armed services, and who are home on leave for 30 days or less, do not have to purchase a license to hunt or fish.
When hunting or fishing, they must have with them a military identification card and a copy of the official document issued by their service unit confirming that they are on authorized leave from their duty station outside of North Carolina.
For non-resident, active duty military personnel stationed in North Carolina, a discounted hunting and fishing privilege was created by the N.C. legislature this year. Under a new law that went into effect in July 2013, military personnel who are not residents of North Carolina and would like to hunt or fish in the state can purchase a short-term or annual license at resident prices. They must be active duty at the time they purchase their resident licenses.
All military personnel must comply with all reporting, regulatory and hunter safety requirements, including registering big game harvests, as mandated by the N.C.Wildlife Resources Commission, and purchasing any federal migratory waterfowl stamps as required bythe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Big Game Harvest Report Cards for license-exempt hunters can be obtained from wildlife service agents or by calling 1-888-248-6834, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Mon.-Fri., except state holidays.
To purchase a license:
- Go to www.ncwildlife.org using a computer or mobile device;
- Visit a local Wildlife Service Agent. Most agents are located in bait-and-tackle shops, hunting and sporting goods stores and larger chain stores across the state;
- Call the Commission at 888-248-6834. Hours of operation are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
For more information on fishing and hunting in North Carolina, or to find the nearest wildlife service agent, visit www.ncwildlife.org.
Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program encourages improvement at your own pace
Fairfax, Virginia – Who isn’t interested in improving their accuracy? If you’re growing tired of trips to the range without defined goals, join in on the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program.
The Marksmanship Qualification Program adds structure and achievable goals to your range visits, helping you develop and improve your marksmanship skills. Qualification shooting is completely informal and is available throughout the entire year. The program sets milestones for progress and provides prizes along the way.
As you reach the different rating levels, you'll receive a medal, certificate and patch to recognize your shooting prowess. Everyone starts out with a large discipline patch and the rating patches are smaller so that they can be arranged around the larger one.
While the program starts at the basic levels (Pro-Marksman, Marksman), shooters will travel up the ladder to intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, Expert) and eventually the nationally recognized skill level – Distinguished Expert – the pinnacle of the program. The Distinguished Expert rating is parallel to a competitively classified Sharpshooter. From there you can jump to that classification tree and rise to Expert, Master and High Master.
The beauty of the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program is that shooting can be conducted anywhere — on public ranges, at your favorite club range, even on your own home range. Because of this, the program is run on the honor system and there's no incentive to cheat since you're just working on marksmanship and not competing with other shooters.
Air gun qualification courses are especially suited for informal home air gun ranges and family learning environments, so good news for all you BB and pellet gun shooters. Parents can shoot side by side with their children or start a neighborhood air gun shooting sports program for their children and their friends.
BB gun, air rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader, pistol, rifle, the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program has it all and anyone can participate. Check out the website for more information and start having some individual or group fun that can last a lifetime.

An AR-15 is a lightweight, magazine-fed, air-cooled rifle that has a rotating-lock bolt. It is actuated by a direct impingement gas operation or a long/short stroke piston operation. It has been originally created for the United States Armed Forces, but due to financial issues, ArmaLite sold the AR-15 to Colt. So far, a lot of versions have been made for the AR-15, including the semi-automatic Colt AR-15 that was released for civilian sales in 1963.
As the world modernizes, AR-15 accessories have been also available in the market for upgrade. Here are five AR-15 accessories that you should not miss out on:
Vertical foregrips are attached under the barrel of the AR-15 to give added stability and control of the rifle. Other versions are simple a grip while others come with flashlights or mounted lasers found within the body. Adding foregrips may look bulky for stands, but when you hook this AR-15 accessory over a window, you will get a rock-solid shooting platform.
If you plan to have longer-range shootings, a bipod may come in handy. This bipod is collapsible that attaches under the front of the barrel, on a rail or a sling swivel post. There are a lot of models for this AR-15 accessory that is available on the market. Adjustable legs are common on bipods and depending on the model, you could adjust it to become a few inches longer to a foot or even better. Some bipods even give you the capability to swivel your rifle.
Back Up Iron Sights or BUIS may come in really handy when you drop your rifle accidentally and when you smash your optic against a rock or stump or something. The rear sights of this BUIS are attached to the back of the rail with its receiver top and are usually folded down when not in use. A front post may be needed for this, too. The A-1/ A-2 styled front post is quite well known and a lot others are created to attach to the top of the gas block.
- AR-15 Flash Hiders
A lot of AR-15s come with a sort of flash suppressor that is attached to the end of its barrel. Most common are the A-1 flash suppressors and the AR-15/ M-16 style three-prong unit. Some are pinned and some are threaded unto the end of the barrel. The AR-15 Flash Hider is a vital tool for modern hugs or hunters who will be using their AR-15s at a low light or at night. Reducing the flash will surely save a shooter’s night vision.
Rail covers will keep your rails clean by making them not be exposed to dirt and dust. This AR-15 accessory is available in a variety of colors and surfaces. Some of these covers snap onto the rail while some can be cut to fit.
The best thing about the semi-automatic AR-15 is that it is customizable. Get any or all of these AR-15 accessories to upgrade yours.

If there is anything that is impressive about the Aimpoint Micro H1 is that it looks to be more tacticool than the T-1. The red dot Aimpoint Micro H-1 brings a lot to the table and can be used for lots of applictaions.
The 1.6 inch wide Aimpoint with it comes a lens diameter of three fourths of an inch, the H-1 redefines skinny. The weight on this one too has been reduced dramatically. This Micro is very light. It also feels substantial. Created from aluminium with a half matte finish, the base and the sight itself are rock solid. There is no reason to believe Aimpont cheapened out here. Powered with a 3V Li battery which can be bought form any drug store, the Aimpoint Micro can run continuously for 5 years on one battery.
The best thing about the Aimpoint Micro H1 is just how fine this engineered wonder looks. The tool serves for multiple purposes and has 2 nubs which easily adjust windage and controls for elevation. The tool sides are wide but flat. Rotation direction is imprinted into the multi-tool. Those who do not make use of the instruction manual has find this very handy. This tool also features screw caps which can be used for dial adjustment.
When one first gets their hands on the Aimpoint Micro Aimpoint H1, it seems a bit narrow. The smaller sized tube allows for faster close-ups and can be picked without the dot of red itself.
The H1 exhibits 4MOA sized dot therefore it is perfected for competitive hunting and speed shooting. Each unit comes with 12 sets for brightness to be used in varying conditions of light. Setting no.7 works like a charm for crisp picture sight even in sunny conditions.
Once the H-1 is mounted onto the AR platform, the clamp latches onto it keep the lever at one place. The system keeps the zero maintained even in case of re-attachment which is just great for anyone who uses sights.
There were initial concerns about the small diameter optic but later on it didn’t quite matter. Using the Aimpoint Micro H1 with both your eyes open shall improve peripheral vision. The Aimpoint H1 has been constructed as a solid, great fitted and smarty built sight. This optic is as impressive as can be and really does stand apart from the crowd in terms of specifications and features. The nearly ninja multi-tool is of great help too which comes along with the package.
