I recently got the chance to handle the Meopta Optika6 5-30×56 MRAD FFP. This optic has many features desirable to precision rifle shooting and competition. In this review, I cover the main bits you should know as well as my recommendation.
In this week’s episode, I go on a bit of a rant about focusing on the right things in life. Goals and scores are good, but they don’t make you happy.
After a year of use, including range time and carry, I thought it’s time to review my almost daily companion, the CZ P07 pistol. If you’re in the market for a DA/SA polymer 9mm, then it’s definitely worth considering. But know what you’re getting yourself into first. Let’s talk.
In this episode of Everyday Marksman Radio, I’m talking to former Army Special Forces SERE instructor Mike Moore about what it takes to survive an emergency. We dig into survival myths, homemade survival kits, and more.
Way back in 2011, I found myself interested in action pistol events like USPSA. I jumped in with both feet shooting matches at my local club in New Jersey where I was as a green a competitive shooter as you could find.
That led me down a long journey and several belt configurations. Let’s talk about what’s been working for me lately.
Despite the title, this episode is not really about cardio equipment or the many benefits of cardio training, that you already know. Instead, this is a short episode discussing a thought I had while exhausting myself on my rowing machine a couple of weeks ago. The seeming slog of cardio is a lot like the path to mastery.
This Marksman Challenge is all about tuning up your skills through the use of disciplined and recurring dry practice (the activity formerly known as dry fire). If there is one recurring theme in every expert I’ve interviewed so far, it’s the importance of dry practice.
This is an interview with Derrick Bartlett, 28 year law enforcement veteran, SWAT officer, sniper instructor, and president of the American Sniper Association.
I am what you might call a “fan” of dry practice. I’ve written articles about it, extolled its virtues to my friends, and engaged in quite a lot of it. In 2019 I set out to do ten minutes of dry practice per day for the entire year. I did it, and I spent a little over 62 hours dry practicing, mostly with my EDC firearm.
Rifle weight is one of those things that always seems to be shifting, and that has a huge effect on balance. A lot of people put too much emphasis on the former, but forget the latter.
In today’s episode of Everyday Marksman Radio, I’m talking to an old friend of mine, Garret Glover. What makes Garrett interesting is not that he’s my friend, though. It’s that he has managed to strike a balance between his career as an active duty Air Force officer, planning a wedding, getting his second master’s degree, running a side business, and still compete as a bodybuilder.
So where does he find 36 hours per day to fit all of this in?
It’s all about smart time management and prioritization.
