I’ve found these resources helpful in my journey. From blogs to books, podcasts to videos, it’s all here. The more we learn, the more we realize how little we know.

Starting Your Tactical Library

Books are timeless, in depth, explainers of who, what, where, when, and why. They teach us skills, educate us, and serve as valuable references. Unlike other resources in common use, books work with or without electricity. We pulled together this article because of a perceived gap in the broader preparedness sphere.

Marksman Live: How to Build Your Team

In this session of Marksman Live, I talked to Brent0331, Doc Larsen, and Les from Pegasus Tests about the structure and capability of your survival team in Scenario-X. We dug into posture, weapon selection, mindset, and more.

Resource Review: Long Range Shooting Handbook

This is my review of Ryan Cleckner’s Long Range Shooting Handbook. It’s a beginner’s guide to precision rifle shooting, and it’s been in my reading queue for nearly a year. In all, I think the book is a worthy read for anyone interested in precision rifles, but it definitely focuses on beginners and might be too basic for some people.

Introduction to the Francs Tireurs, the Little-Known Irregular French Sniper

This is a short post today, as it’s more of a musing than anything. I wanted to touch upon something that I recently came across while reading John West’s Fry the Brain. This is a history about a group of French citizens who ground an enemy’s army to a halt with their marksmanship prowess.

Now Hear This: Are 22LR Trainers Overhyped?

By this point, it’s no secret that I’m way down the path to building a 22LR rifle for training and competition. I’ve previously written about using 22LR as a short-range substitute for centerfire rifles at long range because of its inferior ballistics. 

With that in mind, I want to share a podcast episode from Wolf Precision on this very topic, and why my thinking might be wrong.

Risk Assessment and Mitigation for Everyday Living

It’s March 2020, a time when people are well and truly panicked about a virulent flu strain.  Government institutions across the globe are flailing about for consequence mitigation strategies with greater or lesser success and some risk of unintended consequences. 

People panic because they don’t trust established institutions to handle an emergency.  Institutions lose trust because they’re corrupt, incompetent, unresponsive or some combination. 

So we must ask the question: What’s a working man to do?

Book Review: Body by Science

I want to tell you about one of the best books on fitness and exercise I’ve ever read. In a way, it completely revolutionized how I think about exercise. I first purchased Body by Science in 2012 after a long stint of exploring better ways to live a healthy life.

Book Review: The Foundations of Sniper Marksmanship

This is a review of John C. Simpsons newest book, Foundations of Sniper Marksmanship. This is an update to an older book of his titled Snipercraft, targeted squarely at rifle shooters early in their journey. If you have never had formal marksmanship training, then this is a great read to develop a baseline before you go.

Book Review: With Winning in Mind

Every once and a while, you come across a book that totally changes how you approach things. Lanny Bassham’s With Winning in Mind is one of those books for me. It totally changed how I thought about training, goal setting, and the mental game.

1963: Year of the AR-15

We’re closing in on the end of our SCHV series. It’s now 1963, and the battle between the AR-15 and M-14 comes to a head.

The Ultimate Collection of Free Training Videos

This post is a little different for me. I consider it a bit of a “living” post that I’ll keep updated with resources over time. It’s a collection of what I think are the best free videos for marksmanship training available.

The US Air Force: Savior of the M-16

When we last left off in 1958, the Army had canceled all future funding for AR-15 development. They got the M-14, and the SALVO project was the future.

But that decision wasn’t good enough for one hard-nosed Air Force general who had no problem “cracking skulls” to get what he wanted.
