In this short primer, guest writer Pieter lays out the basics of night vision units. Not everything needs to be the high end gucci gear that most people think of.
SMGs and PCCs have gotten some love lately, and fell off the radar. Their utility is a hot topic for debate, so here's one of our takes. This is a first post by guest writer Pieter, so enjoy!
In the last episode, I discussed the Martial Marksman ideal and how it relates to the various topics I talk about here. One of the challenges that anyone going down this path quickly runs into is the fact that there is a lot of “stuff” to learn and practice. It’s one thing for a professional soldier to do these things, but it’s a very different beast for Everyday Marksmen like you and I.
This is my ongoing "live" review of the Primary Arms GLx 3-18x44 rifle scope. Nearly purpose-built for tactical rifles serving in an SPR/DMR role, it's got a lot of intelligent features and a great price point for what it offers. So how does it stack up for me?
The question you're probably asking is, "Matt, what the hell is a rack rifle?" This post stems from a conversation in my friend Ilya's community. He tagged me on it to provide some of my thoughts, and then he built out his own calling his project, "The AK of ARs." The idea focuses on 3-4 rifles configured similarly that you keep on the rack (or in the safe) for the express purpose of handing them out to friends and neighbors to create a fire team if needed. I thought it was an interesting thought experiment, so I went down a ...
Every time an ammo crunch comes around, I find myself asking why I didn't take my own advice about buying ammo slowly over time. The reality is that it comes down to a mixture of time, budget, and attention. I recently came across a company that looks like it could solve that problem for me, and I want to bring them to your attention.
Circumstances have made me reevaluate and replace my longstanding battle belt system. I took the opportunity to seriously poke around the market and find a better way to do business, and I think I found it.
This post is several months overdue. Between 2021 and 2022, I had a lot of conversations and read a lot of articles. I noticed a distinct trend that shotguns were making waves, and there was a growing interest. I decided to finally fill the glaring hole in my collection and dive into the world of shotgunning. But where to start?
Months of prep time, new gear configurations, and a lot of articles. I finally ran the West Virginia Gun Run this past Saturday. Here's some notes on how it went and what I'd do differently in the future.
Today I'm discussing a concept that's been brewing in the the back of my brain. While working on the book, I've needed a way to illustrate how different things we do relate to improving the whole and take use to new levels of performance. I think I've figured it out, and this is my first go at explaining it.
The DMR and SPR platforms are gaining a lot of popularity again. I wanted to take a minute to walk through the history of the rifles as well as my personal templates and build suggestions should you want to go down the light precision rabbit hole for yourself.
People often think old weapons are automatically obsolete, and don't have much place in your safe as anything other than a collectors item. In today's episode, which is admittedly a little bit of a rant, I'm going to make the case why "obsolete" weapons might still have a real world role to play.
