50 BMG The HTI or Barrett?

50 BMG The HTI or Barrett?

50 BMG The HTI or Barrett? While I do not spend a ton of time with a 50 BMG these days, it was a primary focus while still in command of the SWAT team and training the sniper unit.  Post 9/11 and beyond there was a perceived need for an anti-material cartridge and frankly there really is nothing better. Within LE it was seen as Hard Target Interdiction (HTI), or the need to stop vehicles or other... Read More »

Ballistic Coefficient or (B.C. for those who hate math)

Ballistic Coefficient or (B.C. for those who hate math)

          Ballistic Coefficient or (B.C. for those who hate math)  Years ago, starting down the precision rifle path my craving for “data” and “numbers’ was strong. Part was my need as a trainer and SWAT team leader, but like most new to the craft it was fun and interesting. Most of my focus was on terminal ballistics, but I dived deep... Read More »

MOA and Mils

MOA and Mils

            MOA and Mils Remember doubting the usefulness of anything you learned in math class? That comes back to haunt you today. Any rifle is unlikely to shoot center of the target straight out of the box. It needs sighted in. Whether you use iron sights or optics, you need to make adjustments to them for your shots to hit your desired target at a specified distance. The zero of you... Read More »

Intro to Wind Reading and Mirage

Intro to Wind Reading and Mirage

Intro to Wind Reading and Mirage             Whispers fly back and forth. “What do you think it’s worth? Quarter, maybe half.” The reactions vary up and down the firing line.

Carry on like a lady

Carry on like a lady

Carry on like a lady Hiking, backpacking, hunting, or running a simple errand all demand one item in particular with me. I always feel the most comfortable when I have a firearm with me. This may sound strange, or even a little bit paranoid. I just never wish to get caught without the ability to defend myself if need be. The greatest struggle that I have found with carrying a pistol is the age old... Read More »

Evolution of the AR (or sort of)

Evolution of the AR (or sort of)

Evolution of the AR (or sort of) I was recently asked how the AR “evolved” it was a good question and something that seemed of interest to more than a few. Having been in this business for decades it is something I lived and live today. Experiencing things while still alive tends to provide a different perspective over the latest Internet search and maybe a few myths can be culled along the wa... Read More »

More Guns? Or Multi-Caliber Guns?

More Guns? Or Multi-Caliber Guns? We can all agree that firearms are as addicting as any hobby, the only part we might argue with is how long it takes for the newness to wear off from our latest toy. And as soon as it does, we find ourselves again seeking to justify reasons for another. I often draw a parallel to women’s shoes; sure, any pair of shoes will cover your feet, but ladies often have ... Read More »
