Every once and while, you see, hear, or read something that you just stop and can’t help but nod along with. That happened to me recently while listening to the Fieldcraft Survival podcast. Mike and Kurt put out a lot of great content, but this one definitely stuck with me.
The conversation starter series is an opportunity for members of our community to talk about a specific question or problem. We have readers and commenters from a wide variety of background. From high power competitors to military and law enforcement personnel. Each has their own take on things, and this is how we talk about it.
I’ve touched on the magic of angular measurements before. Typically, you’re going to run into one of two flavors: minutes of angle or milliradians.
