The Swiss Sniping 4th Generation, or S4G, concept leverages ballistic arcs and volleys of fire to increase hit probability. It’s not as fancy as the American Designated Marksman Program, but it’s no slouch, either.

There was a time where ammo was cheap, but those days are gone. The CoolFire Trainer allows you to train with your carry gun for the price of cheap .22lr in the comfort of your own home and on your own schedule. But after nearly 18 months of ownership, do I think it’s worth it? Let’s discuss.
You might not have noticed, but I recently updated the Level 1 fitness standards to include a 1.5 mile run instead of the 1 mile that I originally used. I did this based on a lot of learning I’ve done over 2022 concerning conditioning, metabolism, and how your body recovers from stress. In this post, I want to touch on the key measurement used for aerobic conditioning, how I’m using it for the fitness test, and some tips on how you can improve it for yourself.
When you talk about electronic hearing protection, most people either think “cheaper” like the ubiquitous Howard Leights or “Super Expensive” like Peltor Comtacs and Ops-Core AMPs. Today I’m looking at another American-made option you might not know about, the Otto Noizebarrier Range SA.

In this episode, I once again talk to my very first guest: John Simpson. We dig deeper into the fundamentals of learning good marksmanship, past Army programs, the importance of learning the right lessons in training, and more.
The Swampfox Trihawk is a 3x magnified prism optic intended for tactical usage by law enforcement and prepared citizens. It sports a best-in-class field of view, great optical clarity, and battery-powered illumination. At about a quarter of the price of an ACOG, will it become my go-to recommendation for people looking at prism optics? Let’s take a look.
This is the last of the Everyday Marksman fitness standards. Level 1 was about general health and fitness and Level 2 focused on strength and work capacity. Level 3 combines everything into a few events to test all aspects of combat fitness.
To start off a series of reviews concerning 3x prismatic optics, I wanted to start with the current king of the 3x hill, as it were. The TA33 has been around since 2007, and is well known among enthusiasts. Let’s run down what makes this model so interesting, how it works up close, and where its age is starting to show.
