The topic that started it all. The Marksmanship category contains all discussions about the art and science of employing the rifle.
In this article, we’re digging into terminal ballistics: the science of what happens when the bullet impacts a target. In particular, we’re going over the history of the research and what we know today about how bullets wound and kill a target.
Skill development is a cycle. Competition shows you what skills you need to work on, taking you back to learning a skill that then gets refined. Besides the “software,” or the skills that you personally have, competition is a great place to test your gear. After way, way too long, I finally went and shot a USPSA match. Let’s talk about lessons learned.
During last week’s live stream with USPSA Grand Master Josh Shaw, I broached the topic of standards that every capable citizen should aspire to. He provided two simple tests, and now I’m turning them into a challenge for you.
In this session of Marksman Live, I talked with Josh Shaw of Green Ops Inc about handgun skills. Josh is a USPSA Grand Master and teaches courses for Green ops in the Northern Virginia Area. We cover the importance of handgun skills, misconceptions, gear selection, and a training plan to propel your success.
Alex, AKA Diceman, recently competed in his first multigun match at the Texarkana Gun Club. In part one of his lessons learned, he breaks down each of the four stages, his performance, and what you might take away from that experience.
Buckle up, because I’m about to talk nerdy. This post is all about the two most common marksmanship measurement systems, how to use them, and which one you should use.
Be warned, I will be dropping some math on you. I’ll be gentle, though.
In this guest post, Erik talks us through a new type of tactical biathlon going on down in Texas. Are you up for this combination of endurance and shooting prowess?
This marksman challenge is something I’m calling the “Make Effective Choices” challenge. Like the pistol shooting drills that inspired it, you must balance speed against precision and decision making. Let’s dig in.
With my upcoming PRS Rimfire match, I set out to create my own custom DOPE cards. Whether I need them or not remains to be seen, but I figured you might be interested in downloading the template for yourself.
After some discussion with members of the community, I’m going to post up some new Marksman Challenges as well as prune some of the old ones. Today I’m releasing the Paper Plate Pistolero challenge, which is a fancy way of saying you need to keep 10 shots inside of 8 inches at 25 yards. Let’s dig into the details and the target.
Around the Everyday Marksman’s Discord server, we were commiserating over lack of range time and rusty skills. So we decided to set up an informal postal match just for fun, these are the rules.
I was recently turned on to a YouTube channel simply titled, “Konrad.” I’ve bookmarked it for future reference, but in light of the ongoing ammunition shortage and a renewed focus on “back to basics,” I wanted to share a few videos all about improving your standing position performance.
