“How is your business perceived based on your website?”
by Chris Dixon
It is said that we have just seconds to make a first impression.    They teach this for the interview process so that you can land a job.   This is also one of the first things you are taught in sales as you will live or die based on the first few seconds you spend with a new customer or client.  
So what happens when someone visits your website for the first time?   Does it look professional?  Does it make them want to spend some time there looking around?   Most importantly is it helping you close sales or is it making the process harder?

"I 'm a RICH MAN but I 'm not Wealthy" by Leon Measures

"I'm a RICH MAN but I'm not Wealthy"
by Leon Measures

I am not a rich man in terms of money and possessions. I am extremely wealthy in things money can't buy.  While working with kids, more than half a century, I have been 'paid' many times over.

This morning I remembered Kevin and know I will have a good day. This story has to be long, in order for you (hopefully) to enjoy it with me.

Several years ago, a lady named Sharon Pagel called to ask if we would be interested in doing our shooting show, in Denver. She went on to say she was blind and put on an exhibition with bow and arrow. Sharon said she was practicing to go to Kodiak Alaska to kill a big bear with her bow. I sa ...

"Why Bother?" by Lynn Sherwood

By Lynn Sherwood

Pondering whether to even brush my hair or just scrunch the wet mop out of site atop my head, don dirty yoga pants and flip flops or sturdy shoes and a sassy blouse, and whether the two extra minutes to swipe my lashes with mascara would be a good use of my time before my solo road trip last week, I thought “Why Bother?”
Women in bulky 90’s sweat-suits walk through airports across the country daily, go to the grocery store hiding their face and pray no one they know will see them, and do everything they can to look distracted when passing someone they know if they are not feeling ‘all they can be’ for a variety of reasons.&nbs ...

Only Perfect Practice Makes Perfect.

No aspect of Shotgun Shooting fascinates and frustrates sportsmen quite so much as the question of “Forward Allowance” or “Lead”.

And the chances are, there’ll be no shortage of expert advice on the subject.
Defining “Lead’ is easy. It means putting your shot string or cloud of pellets at the right distance ahead of a mov ...

"Ready for Action" by Keith Coyle

by Keith Coyle
Continuing on with the topic of “Perfect Practice Makes Perfect”, seen in Junes issue of H & S, where we have started to look at the basic skills required to create that perfect shot, having established and I hope “practiced” the correct method of mounting the Gun up to the face and aligning the rib with the master eye, we need to review what other basic elements are required for the shooter to get “Ready For Action”.
Before starting your round of Clays, it’s vitally important to check on your “Master Eye”, you will be surprised how many of us experien ...

“A Correct Gun Mount is the Bedrock of all Good Technique “ by Keith Coyle

“A Correct Gun Mount is the Bedrock of all Good Technique “
by Keith Coyle
As this is my first article for Hunting & Safari magazine, I, of course, spent a considerable amount of time thinking about what the content should be and at what level of expertise it should appeal to.
Well the best place to start, as always, is at the beginning, go back to the basics, which is what we should all do every now and again.  How often when you go to the shooting club do you go there to practice your technique, as opposed to shoot a round and chase a score.
Serious golfers spend as much time on the driving range and putting green, practicing th ...

"Shoot where you Look" by Leon Measures

Shoot where you Look!
by Leon Measures

Please allow me to introduce myself.  I am Leon Measures, an old West Texas bird hunter who learned early on how to become an exceptional wing shot without spending a lot of money.   I've been shooting for more than 70 years and teaching others to shoot for at least 60 of those years.
When I started shooting all I had was hand-me-down BB gun and it didn’t even have sights.   I learned to watch the BB in the air.  The year was 1940 and I was just six years old.   By the time I was 12 I had learned to shoot a shotgun. The gun was three inches too long in the stock and was longer overall than I was tall.&n ...

“Ladies & Firearms”
by Chris Dixon

Most story’s we hear today talk about men and their guns.   I'm going to let you in on a secret, there are a huge number of ladies that like firearms as well.   I was at the Shot Show a few weeks back and the firearms industry has definitely started offering products that the ladies will love.    You can find pink pistols and rifles of every make, model, and size.   The firearms industry is drawing in a huge number of lady self-purchasers who enjoy shooting guns as much as the men do.    Interestingly, many of these ladies might surprise you with their experience and skil ...
