Weatherby's latest additions to their hip WBY-X line, the Volt rifle and shotgun, promise to help small-statured shooters of all ages better enjoy their time spent in the field or on the range. The first thing you notice about these guns is their eye-catching green-on-black "spiderweb" dip, sure to stand out in a crowd. Next, you'll note their exquisite balance and proportions, tailored for those of us who find full-sized guns unwieldy. (An MSRP that toes the $600 line definitely helps sweeten the deal.)

The bolt-action rifle, more precisely known as the WBY-X Vanguard Volt, features a 20-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel, a 12.5-inch length of pull (LOP) and weighs in at just 6.75 pounds. Available in .223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., .243 Win., 7mm-08 Rem. and .308. (www.weatherby.com)

The shotgun, the SA-08 Volt, is a semi-automatic available in 20 gauge. With a 24-inch barrel, the scattergun weighs 5.75 pounds, perfect for quick, nimble swings. The 12.5-inch LOP is perfect for shorter shooters. The gun is chambered for 3-inch magnum loads, so it can serve both for hunting and for the shooting sports.
