Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.
If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Israeli Mauser Watch 3/18/13
Today on Gunbroker.com someone is selling two stripped Israeli Mauser receivers. These are the Belgian-made receivers with the IDF crest on the receiver. I have one which is currently a paper-weight in my office until I figure out what to build with it. The two in the picture look good, except the one that shows rusting..but that may be superficial and nothing a coat of Cerakote or similar product can't hide. These receivers are great platforms for building a hunting or mid-range target rifle. The current asking price is $100, which is a fair deal, especially if your FFL transfer dealer will only charge you for one.
