Weighing in at just under two ounces, the Assert feels light in your hand and durable when you put it to use. Nearly three inches of S30V steel make up a plain edge blade that balances ruggedness and finesse.

A thumb hole and smooth pivot lock make for easy, one-hand opening. A deep carry pocket clip allows your knife to be securely in your pocket until you need it. Option to loop it in a lanyard.

The handle’s textured grip gives you complete control over every cut, every time. Make it your own through Gerber Custom – choose your materials, colors, and lasermarks to make it truly one-of-a-kind.

Master the water: Top rods and reels for 2024

New ammo makes the 28 gauge shotgun more than a grouse, quail and dove gun

Outdoor News’ 2024 ATA & SHOT Show review


Federal has five Premium Heavyweight TSS turkey shot shell loads for this spring, extending the revolutionary shells’ deadly reach on gobblers.

The new offerings include blended loads that combine No. 7 and 9 or 8 and 10 Tungsten Super Shot.

With some payloads topping 1,000 pellets, they more than double the shot count of lead No. 5 loads of the same weight for more hits on target than any turkey load in history.

The tungsten-alloy material’s 18-g/cc density is 22 percent higher than standard tungsten and 56 percent more than lead.

The result is the most energy and highest velocities at extreme range.

Its rear-braking Flitecontrol Flex wad performs flawlessly through ported and standard turkey chokes for the most consistent, deadly patterns possible.

HEVI-Shot Ammunition is now manufacturing new 3-inch, 28-gauge turkey loads in their HEVI-18 TSS and Magnum Blend product lines. These two new products have been shipping to dealers in time for spring turkey hunting seasons.

HEVI-18 Tungsten Super Shot (TSS) Turkey uses high-density 18 g/cc pellets and friction-reducing spherical buffer to extend effective range beyond what’s ever been possible. Pushed at high velocities, TSS pellets carry more energy farther downrange, allowing hunters to drop three shot sizes from common lead payloads and get higher pellet counts and denser patterns.

Magnum Blend offers three shot sizes (5, 6 and 7) in a single shell. The 12 g/cc cast tungsten lets you drop one shot size from lead for the same lethality. These heavy loads really pack some punch: 437 deadly pellets in a single 12-gauge, 3-inch shell. HEVI-Shot’s Magnum Blend Turkey product line now consists of five total load options, available in 10-, 12-, 20-, or 28-gauge. The new load now available is a 3-inch, 1-ounce, 28-gauge option.
