In this special episode of The Everyday Marksman, i’m reposting the first half of a livestream I did with Ilya Koshkin on his YouTube channel last week. I stopped just short of the second half, where we started answering the questions from the audience. You’ll just have to check out the stream itself (posted below) to see how that went.
The topic of the day was a follow up from my recent talk with Jeff Gurwitch. In that episode, Jeff stated his belief that an LPVO with offset red dot sight is the new standard for general purpose rifles. Needless to say, there were quite a few opinions on that matter.
My friend Jacob, the Pro-Gun Millennial, wrote up a whole post challenging the concept. So Ilya decided to host a round table of sorts to opine on the topic.
There’s going to be a part two of this talk, as I bring Ilya over to my own live stream session. The topic will be about BDC vs precision MRAD reticles. Look out for more details about the stream soon.
On that note, let me know if you like this kind of informal roundtable format. Since I’m going to be doing a stream of my own, I figured readers and listeners like you should get the kind of show you enjoy watching or listening to.
What does that mean for the podcast? Well, nothing at all. I have plans for the podcast as well, and the two formats will probably share a lot of content with one another. I have a bit of a romanticism with the podcast format in that I like it to be a bit more polished and produced, while the live format is less structured and more “fun.”
But hey, maybe I’m wrong. Let me know down in the comments. Don’t forget to subscribe to Ilya’s channel while you’re at it!
