Take a look at what our editors think of Ruger's Gold Label shotgun and Browning's Odyssey 2000 flashlight.

Field & Stream Online Editors

The Browning Odyssey 2000 flashlight uses four LED lamps and three AA-cell alkaline batteries, and throws a soft, diffused light that will last for 300 hours of continuous use. The slender Odyssey is water resistant and shockproof and comes with a nylon wrist lanyard. It's $29.95. % 801-876-2711; www.browning.com. -D.E. P.

Ruger's Gold Label is cause for celebration: It's the first American-made side-by-side shotgun in many, many years. With the trim lines of a classic round-action double and a weight of under 61/2 pounds, the Gold Label promises to be an absolute joy in the uplands. The gun comes with five choke tubes, 28-inch barrels, and a choice of straight or pistol grip. In 12-gauge only. Price: $1,995. 928-541-8820; www.ruger-firearms.com.- P. B.
