At SHOT Show 2016, Weatherby premiered its new Vanguard Camilla, a rifle designed exclusively with the huntress in mind. The company's mission, from the start, was to craft a rifle that was designed from the ground up for women, by women—and not to just make a smaller, pinker version of a standard Vanguard. The result is the Camilla. To honor Camilla—and huntresses everywhere—the company rolled out a tribute video discussing the rifle's beginnings, just in time for Mother's Day 2016.
For a first time handgun hunter, a little practice paid off. NRA Publications Editorial Director John Zent invited Senior Digital Producer Tom Rickwalder to the range to test fire the Taurus Raging Bull in 44 Mag. After a little work, they both decided Rickwalder was ready to go on his first handgun hunt. Turkeys and whitetail would serve as his targets in Virginia.
